Vigilius of Thapsus
5th-century Bishop of Thapsus
Vigilius of Thapsus (before 484) also known as Vigilius Tapsensis, Vigilius Afer, or Vergil of Tapso, was a 5th-century Bishop of Thapsus in the province Byzacium, in what is now Tunisia, and as well as a theological writer and polemicist.
The Catholic Encyclopedia attributes another work to him, a series of dialogues:[a]Contra Arianos, Sabellianos, et Photinianos; Athanasio, Ario, Sabellio, Photino et Probo judice, interlocutoribus. The dialog takes the form of a fictional debate among Arius, Sabellius, Photinus and a judge, Probus.
Other dialogues and treatises are said to be written by him; these include works often attributed to other authors (including Hydatius, Ambrose, and Augustine), possibly due to controversy. The following is a partial list:
