Campitre (Also Campates and Campenses)

Campitre (Also Campates And Campenses)

is the name of a small congregation of Donatists at Rome, mentioned by Jerome and others, and called also Montenses (q.v.) and Rupitani. Optatus says that their first bishop was Victor of Numidia, and that no church in Rome was open to him. He therefore surrounded a cave outside the city with wattles, and used it for a conventicle. Jerome says they- met on a mountain. The three names seem to have been derived from campus, mons, and rupes, in allusion to their places of meeting
