Abstract

Hydatius’Chronicle offers a detailed account of the history of 5th century Hispania and the disintegration of imperial power, and with respect to Gallaecia’s church hierarchy it is the only source available. Hydatius fought against barbarians and heretics all his life and as a bishop in Gallaecia, he relentlessly battled with the enemies of the Hispano-Roman population and orthodoxy. Yet heretical teachings gained immense popularity with the Roman population and bishops alike, owing to weak imperial power and the fluctuating nature of political protection Catholic faith received. The focus of this study is to examine how it was possible in 5th century Gallaecia for Priscillianist beliefs, themselves the cause even of political scandal, to spread so rapidly, how they led to the loosening of church discipline and scandallous elections of bishops, and ultimately, how these processes affected the activity of Hydatius as a bishop and his view of history unfolding in the Chronicle.
