Perhaps I should also mention, in a mercifully short post, that today is also the feastday of St Fulgentius of Ruspe, a 5th- and 6th-c. North African bishop and devotee of St Augustine. Unlike the bishop of Hippo, however, St Fulgentius was trained in Greek as well as Latin, and was said to have committed all Homer to memory (I on the other hand am forced to try to impress people by quoting merely the opening line of the Iliad). One can read more about St Fulgentius here. I had occasion to quote his homily on St Stephen (available here) in my post on the Proto-martyr. One can acquire a translation of some of his writings here.
