Mt. Optatus.

Optatus wa Milevi alikuwa askofu wa Milevi, huko Numidia, katika karne ya 4; anakumbukwa hasa kwa maandishi yake bora dhidi ya Parmenianus na wafuasi wengine wa Donato Mkuu.[1]

Optatus alikuwa ameongokea Ukristo, alivyoandika Mt. Augustino,[2] labda baada ya kuwa mtaalamu wa kuhubiri Mpagani.

Optatus anaheshimiwa na Kanisa Katoliki kama mtakatifu.

Sikukuu yake huadhimishwa tarehe 4 Juni.

Tanbihi[hariri | hariri chanzo]

  1. St. Jerome (De viris illustribus, # 110) tells us it was in six books and was written under Valens and Valentinian (364-75). We now possess seven books, and the list of popes is carried as far as Siricius (384-98). Similarly the Donatist succession of antipopes is given (II, IV), as Victor, Bonifatius, Encolpius, Macrobius, Lucianus, Claudianus (the date of the last is about 380), though a few sentences earlier Macrobius is mentioned as the actual bishop. The plan of the work is laid down in Book I, and is completed in six books. It seems, then, that the seventh book, which St. Jerome did not know in 392, was an appendix to a new edition in which St. Optatus made additions to the two episcopal lists. The date of the original work is fixed by the statement in I, xiii, that sixty years and more had passed since the persecution of Diocletian (303-5). Photinus (d. 376) is apparently regarded as still alive; Julian is dead (363). Thus the first books were published about 366-70, and the second edition about 385-90.
  2. "Do we not see with how great a booty of gold and silver and garments Cyprian, doctor suavissimus, came forth out of Egypt, and likewise Lactantius, Victorinus, Optatus, Hilary?" (De Doctrina Christ., xl).
