Quick Reference

(fl. 399–401?),

commonly called the Syrian, author of a Liber de Fide, described in the only known MS as the work of Rufinus, priest of the province of Palestine. The fact that this work is hostile to Arianism, Origen, and the doctrine of Original Sin has led to identification of its author with the Rufinus natione Syrus, said by Marius Mercator to have corrupted the theology of Pelagius, and with the deceased priest mentioned by Celestius in his trial at Carthage in 411.

Subjects: Christianity.
