Theoph´ilus (lover of God), a person of distinction, to whom St. Luke inscribed his Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles (; ). The title given him, translated 'most excellent,' is the same which is given to governors of provinces, as Felix and Festus (; ); whence he is conceived by some to have been a civil magistrate in some high office.
