Paulinus, disciple of Ephraem Syrus

Paulinus (5) (Paulonas), a priest and a disciple of Ephraem Syrus. Gennadius (de Script. Eccl. c. iii. in Patr. Lat. lviii. 1062) gives a short account of him, speaking of his great talent, knowledge of Scripture, and power as a preacher. After his master's death he "separated from the church, and wrote much against the faith," being of an ambitious temperament and eager for renown.

[G.W.D.]
