Julian Of Eclanum


Julian Of Eclanum

▪ bishop of Eclanum
born 380, Eclanum, Italy
died c. 455, , Sicily

      bishop of Eclanum who is considered to be the most intellectual leader of the Pelagians (see Pelagianism).

      Julian was married c. 402, but upon the death of his wife he was ordained and c. 417 succeeded his father, Memorius, as bishop by appointment of Pope St. Innocent I. An early supporter of Pelagius (q.v.), he and several other bishops refused to sign the document issued by Pope St. Zosimus excommunicating Pelagius and his disciple Celestius. Julian demanded that a general council of the church consider the problem. His appeal was rejected, and he was deposed and banished from Italy in 421. He was condemned at the Council of Ephesus in 431, and all his attempts to regain his see failed. He eventually settled in Sicily as a teacher.

      Julian systematized Pelagian theology and wrote several works (most of which are now lost). His writings are known primarily through long quotations from St. Augustine, who refuted them.
