Pictorial Lives of the Saints illustration of Saint Prosper of AquitaineArticle

(Saint) Bishop (June 25) (5th century) A native of Aquitaine, a man of great learning and piety, who attracted the notice of Pope Saint Leo the Great, and was by him employed in the literary work connected with the subtle controversies then going on with the Nestorian and Eutychian heretics. His treatises, however, against Pelagianism, and his Chronicle, are the most noteworthy of his writings. He, or as some think, another Saint of the same name, became Bishop of Reggio in Calabria. Saint Prosper is commonly believed to have died in A.D. 460.
