Honoratus, St., a Manichaean, and archbishop of Aries, was born, according to Baillet, in Belgian Gaul, in the second half of the 4th century. He belonged to a noble family who were pagans; and when he and his brother Venantius became Christians, they left their country and parents, and traveled through Achaia, and afterwards founded a monastery on the island of Serino, opposite Camles, which acquired great celebrity. Some of the most eminent bishops and theologians of the 5th and 6th centuries came out of this convent. Honoratus himself became archbishop of Aries A.D. 426, and died A.D. 429. See Hoefer, Nouv.
