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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XV.—The Giants.

“But from their unhallowed intercourse spurious men sprang, much greater in stature than ordinary men, whom they afterwards called giants; not those dragon-footed giants who waged war against God, as those blasphemous myths of the Greeks do sing, but wild in manners, and greater than men in size, inasmuch as they were sprung of angels; yet less than angels, as they were born of women.  Therefore God, knowing that they were barbarized to brutality, and that the world was not sufficient to satisfy them (for it was created according to the proportion of men and human use), that they might not through want of food turn, contrary to nature, to the eating of animals, and yet seem to be blameless, as having ventured upon this through necessity, the Almighty God rained manna upon them, suited to their various tastes; and they enjoyed all that they would.  But they, on account of their bastard nature, not being pleased with purity of food, longed only after the taste of blood.  Wherefore they first tasted flesh.
