Fulgentius, Ferrandus

Fulgentius, Ferrandus a friend and pupil of Fulgentius of Ruspe, who with him partook of exile in Sardinia. On his return to Carthage he became a deacon, A.D. 523. He died A.D. 551. He was one of the first to declare against the condemnation of the Three Chapters. He also took part in the controversy at that time agitating the Church whether it was orthodox to say, "One person of the Trinity has suffered." Fulgentius defended this expression, but recommended to add "in the flesh which he assumed." Of his writings, we have a Breviatio Canonum (An Abridgment of the Ecclesiastical Canons), containing 232 canons of the councils of Ancyra, Laodicea, Nice, Antioch, Gangra, and Sardica, the canons of which last council, it is most probable, he took from Dionysius Exignus. It was published by the Jesuit Chifflet at Dijon (1649, 4to). He left also a number of Epistles, which, with the Canons, may be found in Bib. Max. Patr. 9:475, and in Migne, Patrol. Latina, volumes 65, 67, 68. A work against the Arians and other heretics was first published by A. Mai (Coll. nouv. t. 3.) — Herzog, Real- Encyklop. 4:626; Wetzer u.
