Exsuperius

bishop of Toulouse in the end of the 4th and beginning of the 5th century, celebrated for the exercise of remarkable charity during a great famine. After having given away all his own property, he sold the sacred vessels of gold and silver to help the poor. Jerome compared him to the widow of Sarepta, and dedicated to him his Commentary on Zechariah. Pope Innocent addressed a decretal to him. He died about A.D. 417. See Acta Sanctorum, Sept. 28; Tillemont, Memoires, 10:617, 825; A. Butler, Lives of Saints, September 28.
