Felix I

bishop of Rome. According to the Acta Sanctorum, he succeeded Dionysius in 269, and died in 274. He was declared a "martyr" by the Council of Ephesus on "account of his sufferings for Christ," but he did not die by violence. There is extant a letter of his against the Sabellians and Paul of Samosata. Other writings, not believed to be his, are to be found in Migne, Patrolog. Lat. vol. v, and in Galland, Bibl. Pat. iii, 542.-Eusebius, Hist. Eccl. 7:30; Baronius, Annales, p. 272-275; Bower, History of the Popes, i, 78.
