Florus of Lyon, a deacon in the second half of the ninth century, was a theologian and canonist, an influential figure in the Frankish kingdom who often gave his opinion on weighty theological matters. His florilegia (compilations of sayings) of the church fathers was intended as an aide-memoire for clerics, drawing together instructive quotations useful for sermons or theological works. This volume contains an edition of his florilegium on Sts. Pacianus, Theophilus, Gregory Nazianzen, Ephrem, Leo, Cyril of Alexandria, Fulgentius, Paulinus Nolanus, and Avitus , organized by work. The editors have also edited volumes on Cyprian and Hilary of Poitiers (I, Corpus Christianorum Continuatio Mediaevalis 193), and on Ambrose (III, CCCM 193A).
