St. Epiphanius of salamis

Epiphanius of Salamis (310-403) was a bishop of Salamis best known for composing the Panarion, a very large compendium of the heresies up to his own time.  One of the heresies mentioned was Collyridianism, an Early Christian heretical movement condemned by the Church, whose adherents worshipped the Virgin Mary as a goddess.  Epiphanius was also able to speak in several tongues, including Hebrew, Syriac, Egyptian, Greek, and Latin, and was called by Jerome on that account Pentaglossos (“Five tongued”).
