Extract from Nicetas of Remesiana (Multilingual): “Whether born a Greek, or a Dacian, he promoted Latin sacred music for use during the eucharistic worship and reputedly composed a number of liturgical hymns, among which some twentieth-century scholars number the major Latin Christian hymn of praise, Te Deum, traditionally attributed to Saints Ambrose and Augustine. Because of his missionary activity, his contemporary and friend, Saint Paulinus of Nola lauded him poetically for instructing in the Gospel barbarians changed by him from wolves to sheep and brought into the fold of peace, and for teaching to sing of Christ with a Roman heart bandits who previously had no such ability. Lengthy excerpts survive of his principal doctrinal work, Instructions for Candidates for Baptism, in six books. They show that he stressed the orthodox position in Trinitarian doctrine. They contain the expression ‘communion of saints’ in reference to the belief in a mystical bond uniting both the living and the dead in a confirmed hope and love. No evidence survives of previous use of this expression, which has since played a central role in formulations of the Christian creed.” See also: St. Nicetas of Remesiana (EN), Nicetus (EN), San Nicetas de Remesiana (SP), San Niceta di Aquileia Vescovo (IT), Saint Nicétas de Rémésiana (FR), Nicetas z Remezjany (PO).
