ARNOBIUS (“the younger”), Christian priest or bishop in
Gaul, flourished about 460. He is the author of a mystical
and allegorical commentary on the Psalms, first published by
Erasmus in 1522, and by him attributed to the elder Arnobius.
It has been frequently reprinted, and in the edition of De la
Barre, 1580, is accompanied by some notes on the Gospels by
the same author. To him has sometimes been ascribed the
anonymous treatise, Arnobii catholici et Serapionis conflictus de
Deo trino et uno ... de gratiae liberi arbitrii concordia, which
was probably written by a follower of Augustine. The opinions
of Arnobius, as appears from the commentary, are semi-Pelagian.
