Fastidius

(95 words)

Author(s): Uthemann, Karl-Heinz (Amsterdam)
[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.

Author(s): Uthemann, Karl-Heinz (Amsterdam)

He was a friend of Paulinus of Nola, whom he visited in January 400 and in 403 at the festival of the martyr Felix and who praised him in a propemptikon as missionary…

Diatribe

(1,230 words)

Author(s): Uthemann, Karl-Heinz (Amsterdam) | Görgemanns, Herwig (Heidelberg)
[German version] A. Concept Diatribe is a modern concept which owes its existence to the fact that, based on Wilamowitz's [3] formal description of the Cynic  Teles' popular-philosophical ‘sermons’ (3rd cent.BC), Usener [1. LXIX] and Wendland [2] introduced for these ‘diatribe’ as a generic term. It has stood the test of time, as long as it is taken as a kind of ancient dialexis (first in [4]); originally as a synonym of dialogos, dialexis referred to any kind of conversation, but in the usage of philosophers and rhetors, it then came to mean a didactic, but also ent…
