Paulinus of Biterre

Paulinus Of Biterre (the modern Beziers), in Gaul, an ecclesiastic of note, was bishop of that city about AD. 420. Some have thought that the Acta S. Genesii notarii Arelatensis are to be ascribed to this Paulinus rather than to Paulinus of Nola, under whose name they have commonly been published. Paulinus of Biterrae wrote an encyclical letter, giving an account of several alarming portents which had occurred at Biterrme. This letter is lost. Oudin has mistakenly said that it is cited in the Annales of Baronius. Possibly Paulinus of Biterree is the Paulinus to whom Gennadius (De Viris Illustribus, c. 68) ascribes several Tractatus de Initio Quadragesirnae, etc. See Idatius, Chron. ad ann. xxv, Arcad. et Honor.; Mirseus, Auctar. de Scriptorib. Eccles. c. 63; Tillemont, Memoires, v. 569; Cave, Hist. Litt. ad ann. 410, 1:389: Oudin, De Scriptorib. Eccles. vol. i, col. 923; Fabricius, Bibl.
