Elpis, first wife of the celebrated philosopher Boethius, was the daughter of Festus, Consul at Rome, 472, and sister of the mother of St. Placidus, a disciple of St. Benedict. The hymn "Aurea luce et decore roseo" (q. v.) is usually, but somewhat uncertainly, attributed to her. Others also bear her name. She died at an early age, at Padua. -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)… Go to person page >
