Similar compilations were also made in the Syriac and Coptic Churches. In the West, Primasius of Adrumentum in the former Roman province of Africa in the sixth century compiled the first catena from Latin commentators. He was imitated by Rhabanus Maurus d. The Western catenae have had less importance attached to them.
The most famous of the medieval Latin compilations of this kind is that of Thomas Aquinas , generally known as the Catena aurea Golden chain and containing excerpts from some eighty Greek and Latin commentators on the Gospels. Similar collections of Greek patristic utterances were constructed for dogmatic purposes. They were used at the Council of Chalcedon in , at the Fifth General Council in , also apropos of Iconoclasm in the Seventh General Council in ; and among the Greeks such compilations, like the exegetical catenae, did not cease until late in the Middle Ages.
The oldest of these dogmatic compilations, attributed to the latter part of the seventh century, is the "Antiquorum Patrum doctrina de Verbi incarnatione". Finally, in response to homiletic and practical needs, there appeared, previous to the tenth century, a number of collections of moral sentences and paraenetic fragments, partly from Scripture and partly from the more famous ecclesiastical writers; sometimes one writer e.
