"Barlaam and Ioasaph," a hagiographic novel in which an Indian prince becomes aware of the world s miseries and is converted to Christianity by a monk, is a Christianized version of the legend of the Buddha. Though often attributed to John Damascene (c. 676 749 CE), it was probably translated from Georgian into Greek in the eleventh century CE.
