Jerome and Gennadius. Lives of Illustrious Men.: Donatus the heresiarch.
p. 380 Chapter XCIII.
Donatus, 2520 from whom the Donatians arose in Africa in the reigns of the emperors Constantinus and Constantius, asserted that the scriptures were given up to the heathen by the orthodox during the persecution, and deceived almost all Africa, and especially Numidia by his persuasiveness. Many of his works, which relate to his heresy, are extant, including On the Holy Spirit, a work which is Arian in doctrine.
Bishop 313, —355.
Next: Asterius the philosopher.
