Jerome and Gennadius. Lives of Illustrious Men.: Severianus the bishop.
Severianus, 2609 bishop of the church of Gabala, was learned in the Holy Scriptures and a wonderful preacher of homilies. On this account he was frequently summoned by the bishop John and the emperor Arcadius to preach a sermon at Constantinople. I have read his Exposition of the epistle to the Galatians and a most attractive little work On baptism and the feast of Epiphany. He died in the reign of Theodosius, his son by baptism.
Severianus of Emesa. Bishop 400–3, died after 408.
Next: Nicaeas the bishop.
