Late Roman variant of Caelestis. This was the name of an important follower of the Christian teacher Pelagius and the Christian doctrine of Pelagianism, who lived in the 5th century AD. The doctrine was considered to be heretical at the time and so Caelestius and his teacher were also seen as heretics.
