Parmenian

Parmenian was a North African Donatist bishop, the successor of Donatus in the Donatist bishopric of Carthage. He wrote several works defending the rigorist views of the Donatists and is recognized as "the most famous Donatist writer of his day", but none of his writings have survived. Optatus of Milevis, the anti-Donatist polemicist and contemporary of Parmenian, calls him peregrinus, meaning that he was not a native of Africa, he may have come from Gaul. Whatever his origin, Parmenian succeeded Donatus as Donatist bishop of Carthage around the year 350, he was banished from the city in 358. He returned in 362 under the decree of Julian. About this time, if not earlier, he published a work in five parts defending Donatism, to which the treatise of Optatus is a reply. In about 372, he wrote a book against Ticonius. At an unknown year during his episcopacy, he oversaw a council of Donatist bishops that made an important proclamation about the rebaptism of traditores. Parmenian died and was succeeded by Primian in about the year 392.

Parmenian's most influential work was written in about 362 and entitled Adversus ecclesiam traditorum. While it has been lost, it appears to have been read by his contemporary Catholic opponents. Optatus published his great work De schismate Donatistarum in response to Parmenian. Judging by Optatus' response, we can infer that Parmenian held the standard rigorist position of the Donatists that "the sacrifice of a sinner is polluted," and that baptism cannot be validly conferred by a sinner, such as one of the traditores. While arguing against his views, Optatus does not refer to Parmenian as a heretic, but rather as a "brother." In about 372, Ticonius, a lay exegete, wrote a book to condemn the more extreme views of Parmenian, but without abandoning his allegiance to the Donatist party. Parmenian replied, condemning the doctrine of Ticonius as tending to connect the true church, with the corrupt one, the Catholic church its African branch. If Parmenian proved more extreme than Ticonius, he can be considered a moderate Donatist for the reason that he did not require the rebaptism of all converts, but only those who had received their first baptism as Catholics.

This moderate rigorism is further seen in the decision of the council of 270 Donatist bishops, convened at Carthage during the episcopate of Parmenian. After 75 days of deliberation, the council at last resolved that the traditores if they refused rebaptism, should be admitted to communion. Parmenian's book against Ticonius fell into the hands of Augustine, who, at the request of his friends, argued against its views in a treatise in three books, over the years 402 to 405. A distinctive hallmark of Parmenian's theology is his idea that the true church possesses seven dotes, which provide proof of its purity and holiness; these were presented in the form of allegorical symbols, derived from the Song of Songs: the cathedra. These "gifts" or signs of the true church were both a guarantee of its validity and protection against the individual sinfulness of some of its members. James Alexander considers this imagery a development of the theologies of Tertullian and Cyprian, of which Parmenian "emerges as the conserver...

Optatus, by contrast, as the innovator." W. H. C. Frend argues that Parmenian was a capable and formidable bishop of his see if his influence and reputation ceased to be recognized with the end of the Donatist schism. Frend writes that Parmenian's authority was "never challenged" during his long term as bishop. After returning to Carthage in 362, he had secured unequivocal leadership of the Donatist church by 364, held onto it until his death in 391 or 392. "He brought Donatism through the crisis of Firmus' revolt, the excommunication of Tyconius, the Rogatist schism. By the end of his rule, Parmenian's church had attained the height of its power and prosperity."A less positive evaluation of Parmenian's tenure as bishop would blame him for causing the schism of Maximian within the Donatist church. The break, which occurred after Parmenian's death, split the community into groups of "Parmenianites" and "Maximianites," which "fought tooth and claw and persecuted each other." According to George M. Ella, the resulting lack of unity in the North African Christian community was a contributing factor to the ease with which the Islamic conquest of the area succeeded in the late 600s: "the blood of the Donatists had become the seed of Islam."
