We are persecutedbecause we say that the Son has a beginning, but that God is without beginning.

    But it may be proper to mention also those events which exhibited the graciousness of that all-good Providence which held back their destruction full forty years after their crime against Christ,--during which time many of the apostles and disciples, Lectures on ecclesiastical history book James himself the first bishop there, the one who is called the brother of the Lord, were still alive, and dwelling in Jerusalem itself, remained the surest bulwark of the place. SINCE, then, these letters state, that the priests subject to Apamea had separated from Severus, let me now add a circumstance transmitted to us from our fathers, although it has not hitherto found a place in history. Of the Tetrapylum I was not able to detect the slightest vestige. But sometime after a considerable war broke out in the city, and he departed from Alexandria. This is stated by Justin, one of our distinguished writers who lived not long after the time of the apostles. If the pensions were formerly triple in amount to what they are at present, the generosity of the emperor can by this fact be easily seen.

    In him the enemy of the truth found an instrument whereby to stir and agitate the angry waters of Lectures on ecclesiastical history book Churchand persuaded him to oppose the apostolic doctrine of Alexander. It should be the object of their teaching to give them as large a view as may be given of the general course of history. Likewise also Hippolytus, who presided over another church, has left writings. These are the words of the great Eustathius. To those who attended the council, three hundred and eighteen in number, he manifested great kindness, addressing them with much gentleness, and presenting them with gifts. John, the most pious apostle, perceiving that the word 'was' applied to the Word of God was far beyond and above the intelligence of created beings, did not presume to speak of His generation or creation, nor yet dared to name the Maker and the creature in equivalent syllables.

Accordingly, he rejected from the see of the imperial city, first, Euphemius, as has been already mentioned, and afterwards Macedonius, who was succeeded by Timotheus; and Flavian from the see of Antioch.

SINCE, then, these letters state, that the priests subject to Apamea had separated from Severus, let me now add a circumstance transmitted to us from our fathers, although it has not hitherto found a place in history.

And at that Lectures on ecclesiastical history book also a synod of considerable size assembled, and Origenbeing again invited there, spoke publicly on the question with such effect that the opinions of those who had formerly fallen were changed.

I shall quote from the epistle of Dionysius to Germanus an account of what befell the former. It may be well to add that in the sixth book of his exposition of the Gospel of John he states that he prepared the first five while in Alexandria.

And in addition to the well-known translations of Aquila, Symmachus, and Theodotion, he discovered certain others which had been concealed from remote times — in what out-of-the-way corners I know not — and by his search he brought them to light.

The zeal of my lord Eusebius in the cause of the truthand likewise your silence concerning it, have not failed to reach our ears. In him the enemy of the truth found an instrument whereby to stir and agitate the angry waters of the Churchand persuaded him to oppose the apostolic doctrine of Alexander.

JOHN the rhetorician writes, that in the time of Zeno, Mammianus from an artizan became a person of note and a member of the senate; and that he built in the suburb of Daphne what is called the Antiphorus, on a site previously planted with vines and suitable for cultivation, directly opposite the public baths; where there is also the brazen statue inscribed, "Mammianus the friend of the city.

Again, the national life of England has in modern times given the Englishman strong political instincts of a decidedly practical kind. He was continually engaged in theological controversy, although courteously, and, by his advocacy of all efforts to promote the social, moral, and religious amelioration of the poorer classes and his chivalrous courage in defending those whom he held to be unjustly denounced, undoubtedly incurred opposition from some in influential circles.

I refer their sentence to your decision. I pray that you may be strong in the Lordmy beloved, and that I may receive the fruit of your love to Christ. Finally, inin an article published in the Edinburgh Review in defence of the Gorham judgment he asserted two principles which he maintained to the end of his life—first, "that the so-called supremacy of the Crown in religious matters was in reality nothing else than the supremacy of law, and, secondly, that the Church of England, by the very condition of its being, was not High or Low, but Broad, and had always included and been meant to include, opposite and contradictory opinions on points even more important than those at present under discussion.
