32. The people of Nunti would like to have Fulgentius as their bishop. The Catholic bishops, notwithstanding the interdiction by the Vandal King Thrasamund, start consecrating new bishops:
33. ...So a widespread action suddenly began: the presbyters, deacons, and whoever was found worthy of the election, were snatched, blessed, and consecrated, every place wanting to be the first to do it, so that one does not look late or the last one in this effort.
Fulgentius, howevere, manages to hide and not be ordained.
