ARNOBIUS (" the younger "), Christian priest or bishop in Gaul, flourished about 46o. 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, 158o, 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 confictus 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. ARNOLD
