Prosper of Aquitaine

(Prosper Tiro [or Tyro]; Lusentius? ca. 390–ca. 455/463). B. perhaps Limoges, Aquitaine; follower of Augustine* of Hippo; assoc. with Leo I (see Popes, 2). Wrote against semi-Pelagians, in defense of Augustine, and against the 13th collatio of J. Cassianus* (on free will); other works include a synthesis of the chronicles of Jerome* (to AD 378), Sulpicius* Severus, and Orosius* (to 433), with possible reflections of his own experience 433–455.
