Saint Paulinus of Trier (died 358) was bishop of Trier and a supporter of Athanasius in the conflict with Arianism. At the Synod of Arles of 353 he was isolated among Arians, and was exiled, to Phrygia[1], being effectively singled out by the Emperor Constantius II[2][3]. He died in exile.[4]

Paulinus was from Gascony and educated in the cathedral school at Poitiers[5]. He travelled to Germany with Maximin of Trier, whom he succeeded as bishop. He is a Catholic and Orthodox saint (feast day August 31).[6]
