Fasti'dius

a British bishop placed, as to time, by Gennadius, between Cyril of Alexandria and Theodotus of Ancyra.


Works


One tract by this author, entitled De Vita Christiana, is still extant, but was long ascribed to St. Augustin, or to some unknown writer, until restored to its lawful owner by Holstenius.

Editions

Holstenius published an edition at Rome in 1663, from an ancient MS, in the monastery of Monte Casino. It will be found in the Bibliotheca Patrum of Galland (vol. ix. p. 481) and a discussion upon Fastidius himself in the Prolegomena (p. xxix.).


Gennadius ascribes to him another work, De Viduitate Servanda, which, however, was perhaps incorporated in the piece mentioned aboove, which contains a chapter De Triplici Viduitale.
