Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from General Biography, or Lives, Critical and Historical, of the Most Eminent Persons of All Ages, Countries, Conditions, and Professions, Vol. 4: Arranged According to Alphabetical Order Fabianus, pope, .or bishop of Rome in the third century, was a native of that city, or of some place in the neighbourhood, and chosen to succeed Anterus in the year 236. He pre sided over the Roman church for fourteen years, and fell a martyr to the christian cause under the Decian persecution, in the year 2 50. His conduct during his episcopate appears to have been highly praise-worthy; and by St. Cyprian he is called an excellent man, the glory of whose death had answered the purity, holiness, and integrity of his life. The following mar vellous tale is related by Eusebius concerning his election: that when the people and clergy were assembled to fill the vacant see, a dove, appearing unexpectedly, settled, to the surprise Of all present, upon the head of Fabianus, who was not so much as thought of, being but a layman at which prodigy the whole assembly cried out with one voice, Fabianus is ourbishop, and, crowding around him, placed him without delay in the episcopal throne. We leave it, without any remark, to the judgment of our readers. To Fabianus, according to Tillemont and some other learned moderns, a considerable part of Gaul was indebted for its conversion to Christianity, by the care which he took to send able bishops into different parts of that country, who gained numerous proselytes, and established churches at toulouse, Arles, Tours, Paris, Narbonne, Clermont, and Limoges. Euree. Hirt. Ecc1. Lib. Vi. Cap. 29. Plating de [42. Pout. Marni. Bowen - M. Fabius maximus, surnamed rul lianus, an eminent Roman commander of the il lustrions Fabian family, was master of the horfe to the dictator Papirius Cursor, bc. 324. Papirius, in a campaign against the Samnites, returning to Rome on account of some religious ceremony, left express orders with Fabius not to fight in his absence. Notwithstanding this prohibition, he made use Of a favourable occa sion, and gave the enemy a signal defeat. Con scious of having deserved the dictator s resent ment, he burnt all the spoils that they might not grace his triumph, communicated to the senate, and not to him, the-news of his success.
