AGRESTIUS 5th c.. Bishop of Lugo Gallaecia. The only thing known of his life is his attempt in 433 to oppose the episcopal election of Pastor and Syagrius Idatius, Chron., ed. Tranoy, SCh 218, Paris 1974, n. 102, adversaries of Priscillianism. It is not known whether Priscillian sympathies motivated Agrestius’s opposition; in any case he probably attracted suspicion in this regard. A short, fragmented poem has recently been attributed to Agrestius, titled Versus Agresti Ep. de fide ad Avitum Ep. The content of the work, a didactic letter with a profession of faith regarding esp. the creation ex nihilo fits Agrestius’s situation well and could be his response to accusations of heresy.
