Man of the Gadarenes

I was wondering if some of you could help me in my search of this man in church history. In Luke 8:26-40 is the story of the demoniac of the country of the Gadarenes and how Jesus casts out the legion of demons. In the latter part of the story this man wanted to "be with him". But, Jesus told him to, "Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee..."

I've heard a preacher talk about how this man made a huge mark on church history evangelizing to everyone. Even fleeing from the Romans and how he was high on their "hit list". This preacher called the man by the name of "Mostaysus" (sp?) (Most - A - sus) I have searched for this name in multiple spellings and have not found anything.

If someone could help me find this man in church history it would be very much appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Scott Parker
