Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol I:
The Church History of Eusebius.: Chapter XXV

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXV.—How All came to an Agreement respecting the Passover.

1. Those in Palestine whom we have recently mentioned, Narcissus and Theophilus, 1717 and with them Cassius, 1718 bishop of the church of Tyre, and Clarus of the church of Ptolemais, and those who met with them, 1719 having stated many things respecting the tradition concerning the passover which had come to them in succession from the apostles, at the close of their writing add these words: 1720

2. “Endeavor to send copies of our letter to every church, that we may not furnish occasion to those who easily deceive their souls. We show you indeed that also in Alexandria they keep it on the same day that we do. For letters are carried from us to them and from them to us, so that in the same manner and at the same time we keep the sacred day.” 1721
