Hilary of Poiters
Hilary of Poitiers (Latin: Hilarius; c. 310 – c. 367)[2] was Bishop of Poitiers and a Doctor of the Church. He was sometimes referred to as the "Hammer of the Arians" (Malleus Arianorum) and the "Athanasius of the West",[3] His name comes from the Latin word for happy or cheerful. In addition to his important work as bishop, Hilary was married and the father of Abra of Poitiers, a nun and saint who became known for her charity.[4]

Hilary the Deacon (Latin: Hilarius Diaconus; fl. mid-4th century) was a Sardinian deacon of the Roman church.[1] In 355, along with Lucifer of Cagliari, Eusebius of Vercelli, and Pancratius, he was directed by Pope Liberius to plead for Athanasian orthodoxy before Constantius II at the Council of Mila ... He is sometimes credited (on doubtful authority) with two works.[1] The first, his Commentary on Paul's Epistles (Commentarius in Epistolas Pauli), is often published along with the writings of St Ambrosius; the other, Questions of the Old and New Testament (Quaestiones Veteris et Novi Testamenti), among the works of St Augustine.[1][2]

Hilary of Arles, also known by his Latin name Hilarius (c. 403–449), was a bishop of Arles in Southern France. He is recognized as a saint by the Roman Catholic and Orthodox[1] Churches, with his feast day celebrated on 5 May.
