The frontispiece of the Πηδάλιον (Leipzig: 1800): an allegory of the church as a ship with canon law as its rudder.

Resources for the study of Eastern Christian ecclesiastical law and canon law.

John Zonaras, Byzantine chronicler and canonist, lived from the latter part of the eleventh to about the middle of the twelfth century. Under Emperor Alexios Komnenos he was commander of the imperial bodyguard and first secretary of the imperial chancery. Later he became a monk at Hagia Glykeria. Here he wrote  his commentary on the canons of the apostles, and of various Eastern synods, and on the canonical letters of the fathers of the third and fourth centuries.
