Reticius of Autun (Saint)
(105 words)

[German Version]

(early 4th cent.). Born to a distinguished family, Reticius became bishop of Autun after he was widowed (Greg. T. In gloria confessorum miracula, 74) and took part in synods in Rome (313; Aug. Contra Iulianum I 55; Eus. Hist. eccl. X 19) and Arles (314; CChr.SL 148 16.33) that condemned Donatus (Donatism). Fragments of a work on baptism, possibly Adversus Novatianum (Jer. Vir. ill. 82), and a commentary on the Song of Songs (Jer. Ep. 5; 37) have survived.
