Endelechius
(110 words)

[German version]

Probably identical with the rhetor Severus Sanctus E. who taught in Rome in AD 395, was of Gallic origin and friends with  Paulinus of Nola. About 400 he composed a bucolic Christian poem ( Bucolics) in 33 stanzas (i.e. the number of years of Christ's life), each of three asclepiads and one glyconeus: Bucolus reports to Aegon the loss of his flock due to a cattle disease while Christ points out to Tityrus that his flock was preserved by the power of the cross. Thereupon, the other two convert to Christianity.
