Honoratus, St (2)
Bishop of Marseilles, was born about 420 or 425, and is said to have been educated at the school of Lerins. He was the successor of the celebrated Tillemont in the episcopacy (probably in 475), but of his works very little is known at present. Some ascribe to him the authorship of a life of St. Hilarius, which other critics suppose to be the production of Viventius. He died about 492, counting pope Gelasius I among his admirers. — Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Géneralé. 25, 78.
