Book of Saints – Prudentius – 6 April

Saint Prudentius of TroyesArticle

(Saint) Bishop (April 6) (9th century) One of the most learned prelates of his age, zealous and successful in confuting the then threatening heresies of Gotteschalk, Scotus Erigena and others. Butler defends him well from the charge of having in certain passages of his works advanced erroneous doctrines in reference to abstruse points of theology. His name, however, is not inserted in the Roman Martyrology. As Bishop of Troyes he showed himself energetic in reforming Church discipline. He passed away A.D. 861. He is, of course, quite other than the Spanish Christian poet Prudentius.
