Bonosus

d. c.400. Bishop of Naissus in Yugoslavia. He was deposed after the Council of Capua (391) instructed the bishop of Thessalonica and the Illyrian bishops to examine him, and they found him guilty of teaching that Mary had children by Joseph after the birth of Jesus; he might also have taught Photinian Adoptianism.* The Bonosiani followed him into schism and survived, especially among Goths, in Spain and Gaul down to the seventh century. Controversy arose in Illyricum concerning the validity of his ordinations.
