Rev. Alban Butler (1711–73).  Volume IV: April.
The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
April 16
St. Turibius, Bishop of Astorga
 
A ZEALOUS maintainer of ecclesiastical discipline, and defender of the faith against the Priscillianist heresy in Spain; in which his endeavours were seconded by St. Leo the Great, as appears by his letter to St. Turibius. 1 His predecessor, Dictinius, had the misfortune to fall into the heresy of the Priscillianists; but was never deposed, as Quesnel mistakes. His death happened about the year 420, as is clear from St. Austin. 2 St. Turibius died about the year 460, and is named in the Roman Martyrology on this day. See Baronius, Gerves, and Cacciari, Exercitat. in Op. S. Leon. Diss. 2. de Hæresi Priscill. c. 13, 14, p. 250, &c.  1
