5th Century

Probably in Rome.

In early life, Sedulius devoted himself to heathen literature. It is believed he converted to Christianity relatively late in life, and that his friends included Gallieanus and Perpetua. His works were collected after his death by Asterius, who was consul in 494; they include:

  1. A Solis Ortus Cardine
  2. When Christ’s Appearing Was Made Known
  3. Hostis Herodes impie
