Albigerius (ca. 400 C.E.)
A Carthaginian soothsayer mentioned by St. Augustine. He
would fall into strange ecstasies in which his soul, separated
from his body, would travel abroad and find out what was taking
place in distant places. He could read people’s thoughts
and discover anything he wished to learn. These wonders were
ascribed to the agency of the Devil. St. Augustine also speaks
of a time when the possessed man was ill of a fever. Though not
in a trance, he saw the priest who was coming to visit him while
he was yet six leagues away, and Albigerius told the company
assembled around him the exact moment when the priest
would arrive.
