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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter IV.—Zoroaster.

“Of this family there was born in due time a certain one, who took up with magical practices, by name Nebrod, who chose, giant-like, to devise things in opposition to God.  Him the Greeks have called Zoroaster.  He, after the deluge, being ambitious of sovereignty, and being a great magician, by magical arts compelled the world-guiding star of the wicked one who now rules, to the bestowal of the sovereignty as a gift from him.  But he, 1110 being a prince, p. 276 and having authority over him who compelled him, 1111 wrathfully poured out the fire of the kingdom, that he might both bring to allegiance, and might punish him who at first constrained him.



That is, I suppose, the wicked one.


I suppose Nimrod, or Zoroaster.
