Synesius, Bishop Ptolemais (375414)

Synesius, Bishop Ptolemais, born at Cyrene; became a pupil of Hypatia (q.v.) and was to the last a disciple, “a father of the Church without having been her son,” and is styled by Kingsley “the squire bishop,” from his love of the chase; “books and the chase,” on one occasion he writes, “make up my life”; wrote one or two curious books, and several hymns expressive of a longing after divine things (375414).
