Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol VIII:
Pseudo-Clementine Literature.: Chapter XXI

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXI.—Districts of Heaven.

“And that those who study mathematics may not have it in their power to use that subterfuge by which they say that there are certain districts of heaven to which it is granted to have some things peculiar to themselves, some of that nation of Persians have gone to foreign countries, who are called Magusæi, of whom there are some to this day in Media, others in Parthia, some also in Egypt, and a considerable number in Galatia and Phrygia, all of whom maintain the form of this incestuous tradition without variation, and hand it down to their posterity to be observed, even although they have changed their district of heaven; nor has Venus with the Moon in the confines and houses of Saturn, with p. 188 Saturn also and Mars looking on, compelled them to have a Genesis among other men. 846



This is a literal translation of text.  If we read genesi for genesim, we get:  “nor has Venus, etc., compelled them to keep up this custom in the midst of others through the force of genesis.”  Eusebius reads:  “And assuredly Venus, etc., is not found in the genesis of all of them.”

Next: Chapter XXII
