A zealous maintainer of ecclesiastical discipline, and defender of the faith against the Priscillianist heresy in Spain; in which his endeavors were seconded by St. Leo the Great, as appears by his letter to St. Turibius. His predecessor, Dictinius, had the misfortune to fall into the heresy of the Priscillianists; but was never deposed, as the historian Quesnel mistakes, and died about the year 420, as is clear from the writings St. Austin. St. Turibins died about the year 460, and is named in the Roman Martyrology on this day.
