Fastidius
(95 words)

[German version]

Bishop in Britain in the 5th cent. AD; according to Gennadius (vir. ill. 57) author of two texts: De vita Christiana (ad Fatalem) and De viduitate servanda. His adherence to the Pelagians ( Pelagius), named in  Prosper Tiro's Chronicon of 429 (MGH AA 9,1, 472), is not proven. Leaving aside the Epistula ad Fatalem (cf. CPL 763) used in sermon 20 of  Caesarius of Arles (CPL 1008), any attribution of texts, including the so-called Corpus Caspari (CPL 732-736), is disputed.
