Scholar and confessor. Pierius was the director of the Catechetical School of Alexandria and was called "the Younger" owing to the doctrinal errors of the elder Origen which found their way into Pierius' writings. A priest, he was the author of various treatises on philosophy and theology and was a brilliant preacher and teacher praised by both Eusebius of Caesarea and St. Jerome. He died in Rome, but not from the persecution of the times.
