Synopsis

TYCHONIUS, d. about 390; belonged to the Donatist sect, though without giving up his connection with the Catholic Church, for which reason he was violently attacked by Parmenianus as a traitor. Of his writings, we have only one, Liber de septem regulis; but as the first attempt at forming a theory of Christian hermeneutics, and on account of the influence which its author exercised on Augustine, it is of great interest. It was first edited by GRYNAEU5, Basel, 1569, and best by GALLANDI, in his Bibl. Vet. Patr., viii. pp. 107-129.
