Testimonies Against The Jews

Testimonies Against The Jews is a 4th or 5th century pseudepigraphical text written in the name of Gregory of Nyssa which contains Old Testament testimonies against the Jews. Its author is often called Pseudo-Gregory.[1][2]


The text is widely agreed to be pseudepigraphical.[1]: 17  It is dated to the late 4th century at the earliest due to its familiarity with the Sabellian controversy.[1]: 17  Some scholars prefer a 5th-century date after the death of Gregory of Nyssa.[1]: 17 


It mentions Simon the Magician.[3]
