SIXTH CENTURY. Bishop of Hadrumetum, North Africa. He strongly supported pope Vigilius in the “Three Chapters”* controversy. He is chiefly remembered for his commentary on Revelation, in which he drew extensively on Tyconius and Augustine, written before 543-44 (when it was mentioned by Cassiodorus) and before he was embroiled in the controversy aroused in Africa by the “Three Chapters.” Textually the commentary is important because it preserves almost completely the African Latin text of the Apocalypse.
