Severus. Sulpicius Severus, who has been styled the Christian
Sallust, was born in Aquitaine about 360; and died circa 420-25. He
became a personal friend and enthusiastic disciple of S. Martin, and lived
near Eauze, at Toulouse and Luz in Southern France. His Life of S.
Martin was very popular during the Middle Ages, as also were his
Two Dialogues, formerly divided into three. His works are to
be found in Migne, Patres Latini, XX, 95-248.
