Scholasticus was an exarch of Ravenna (713-723).

In 713 he was appointed as exarch, the same year Anastasios II became Byzantine Emperor, and overthrew the Monothelite Emperor Philippicus. Scholasticus was charged with giving a letter to Pope Constantine, which described Anastasios' allegiance to orthodoxy, helping to heal the rift between Rome and Constantinople.[1] He was replaced in ca. 723 as exarch by Paul.
