Lives of Illustrious Men – Acacius the bishop


Acacius, who, because he was blind in one eye, they nicknamed “the one-eyed,” bishop of the church of Caesarea in Palestine, wrote seventeen volumes On Ecclesiastes and six of Miscellaneous questions, and many treatises besides on various subjects. He was so influential in the reign of the emperor Constantius that lie made Felix bishop of Rome in the place of Liberius.
