ASTERIUS of Ansedunum

ASTERIUS of Ansedunum. Bishop of Ansedunum 4th-5th c., he figures in ms. Veron. 93 as the author of a libellus, still unpublished, titled Liber seu epistula ad Renatum monachum de fugiendo monialium colloquio et visitatione. G. Morin has published a few fragments. The work denounces the abuses arising from the cohabitation of virgins with monks and priests. The MS calls Asterius a disciple of Jerome. The current state of research does not allow the determination of Asterius’s identity with certainty; he is otherwise unknown, as is Ansedunum. CPL 642.Ad Renatum – AbeBooks holidaymapq
