A gleaning of patristic sources, some familiar and some obscure, whose mutual inclusion in one volume seems to be that they are contemporary- living and writing at the end of the fourth century. Many have heard of Martin of Tours, but not his biographer, Sulpicius Severus; Augustine is famous, but his disciple and defender Prosper of Aquitaine largely forgotten. Also included in this compendium are the writings of Vincent of Lerins, whose classic 'marks of catholicity' are as wellknown as their sources are obscure. 443 pp. N° de réf. du libraire 20100921178512
Synopsis : Two friends of St. Paulinus of Nola introduce this miscellaneous volume. Niceta, a bishop in what is now Yugoslavia, offers five mainly pastoral works, while Sulpicius Severus, from South France, gives us in the Life of St. Martin and in the related Letters and Dialogues the basic story of the ever appealing third bishop of Tours. South France is again the source of the two remaining works here offered, the writings of two contemporaries who in some points took opposing views on the spread of St. Augustine's theology, Vincent opposing some parts of it, Prosper espousing it. Vincent's Commonitories contain the famous threefold test of Catholicity: "what has been believed everywhere, always, and by all."
