Scholasticus was an exarch of Ravenna (713-726).
In 713 he was appointed as exarch, the same year Anastasius became Byzantine Emperor, and overthrew the Monothelite Emperor Philippicus. Scholasticus was charged with giving a letter to Pope Constantine, which described Anastasius' allegiance to orthodoxy, helping to heal the rift between Rome and Constantinople. He was replaced in 726 as exarch by Paul.
