Victorinus of Pettau
Saint Victorinus of Pettau was an Early Christian ecclesiastical writer who flourished and was martyred during the persecutions of Emperor Diocletian. A Bishop of Poetovio (Slovenia) he was born probably in Greece and spoke Greek better than Latin. He was the first theologian to use Latin for his exegesis. He is one of the earliest church fathers to give any indication against Chiliasm, though he still respects the gathering of the church to Judea.

IMPORTANT: All Scripture text has context and background. Scripture should never be read literally or in isolation. Always seek clarification from religious scholars and teachers. In general, Scripture adheres to four principles: (1) Literal Meaning - What the Scripture says (2) Historical Setting - The story events; how the Scripture was understood in its time (3) Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context (4) Synthesis - A comparison with similar Scripture to give a better contextual understanding
