The works of Saint Paulinus of Nola edited by Henricus Gravius (1536-1591), Dutch theologian and official censor of books at the University of Louvain. Paulinus was a Roman lawyer and poet who, with his wife, converted to Christianity, gave away the family fortune, and pursued a life of austerity and mortification. Together they helped to found a community of monks near the tomb of St. Nola in Naples, Italy. In 409 he was elected Bishop of Nola. His life was held up as an example by his contemporaries, including his fellow future saints Augustin, Jerome, Ambrose and Martin of Tours, with whom he corresponded. His surviving works include over fifty letters, dozens of poems, and several prose pieces. Adams P-477 (CC only). Buyck P 09.1. WorldCat lists only 2 copies in the US (Louisiana and Cleveland).
