Salvian, presbyter in Marseille, well learned in both secular and sacred literature, and, speaking without jealousy, a tutor of bishops, wrote many things in a learned and plain style, of which I have read the following: three books On the benefits of virginity to Marcellus the presbyter, four books Against avarice, five books On the present judgment, and To bishop Salonius one book of the explanation for the favour granted to them [possibly, to Eucherius of Lyon's sons, tutored by Salvian], also one book of Commentary on the latter part of the book of Ecclesiastes, addressed to bishop Claudius of Vienne, [one book of Letters]. He also composed one book in verse after the Greek fashion, a sort of Hexaemeron, On the beginning of Genesis up to the creation of man, also many Homilies for the bishops, and I truly do not know how many [Homilies] on the sacraments. He lives to this day at a good old age.
