Victorinus Is Next at Biblicalia

Kevin has moved from Hebrew to Latin, from the Book of the Prophet Malachi to St. Victorinus’s Commentary on the Apocalypse. Victorinus, the bishop of Pettau in today’s Austria, was martyred under Diocletian around 303 A.D. No less a scholar than Jerome admired his commentary on Revelation. Jerome produced his own, amended version of the work.
