Titus of Bostra (2nd half 4th cent.)

Bp. of Bostra and Greek author. His most important work is a treatise in four books against the Manichaeans ( CPG 3575), whose Greek original only survives in part (ed. P. de Lagarde, 1859; further sections, ed. P. Nagel, 1973), but the complete text is preserved in Syriac translation in a ms. copied in Edessa in 411.
