Leo and Sabinianus, presbyters of Narbonne, took some kind of disciplinary action towards a person (or persons?) accused of adultery (qui pudicitiae zelo videntur modum excessisse vindictae). Bishop Rusticus apparently was displeased with the severity of this punishment and summoned the presbyters to a gathering at which other bishops and laymen of high rank (honorati) were also present. The presbyters, however, refused to come, because they had "lost confidence in the action" (Sabiniano et Leoni presbyteris actionis tuae intelleximus fiduciam defuisse) of Rusticus. Leo the Great agrees with Rusticus that Sabinianus and Leo went too far, but advises Rusticus to discipline them with moderation.
