He wrote Περὶ τῶν αἰτιῶν τῆς ἐκκλησιαστικῆς διαστάσεως , first printed at London (n. d.), afterward, Greek and Latin, at Basel (1544); again at Frankfort (1555), and atHainault (1608).

He wrote also Περὶ τῆς ἀρχῆς τοῦ Πάπα (Francfort, 1555, 8vo; Hanover, 1608, with the works of Barlaam). Dupin says that these writings are "full oflearning." The book on the papal supremacy was translated into English by Gressop (London, 1560, 8vo). Cabasilas died in 1350.-Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, 8:15; Cave, Hist.
