He was a Greek who, along with his parents, was a slave of the Goths. He invented the Gothic alphabet in order to translate Holy Scripture into Gothic, but he left out the Books of Kings, because he was concerned that the war narratives in them would encourage the Goths to be even more warlike than they already were.
Oh,that's what I thought but why does the article call him "St. Ulfilas"?
