St OPTATUS

Christian Saint

African Bishop of Milevum.

He seems to have spent most of his time trying to stem the tide of Donatism and prevent a schism.

We assume he succeeded, as the Donatist idea that the Church was only for Holy folk and that mortal sinners must be excluded at all costs didn’t become par for the course.
