Vigilius of Thapsus

FL. c.470-500. Bishop of Thapsus. After being summoned to appear before the Arian king Huneric at Carthage about 484, he fled to Constantinople, where he was well received. Here he wrote his Libri quinque contra Eutychetem (“Five Books Against Eutyches”) in which he defended Chalcedonian orthodoxy and refuted Monophysitism.* He wrote other books against the developed Arianism* which still existed in the East, but only the Dialogue is extant. Not a few treatises attributed to him have now been shown to be by other authors.
