Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. VIII:
The Letters.: To Jovinus, Bishop of Perrha.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

p. 192 Letter CXVIII. 2393

To Jovinus, Bishop of Perrha2394

You owe me a good turn.  For I lent you a kindness, which I ought to get back with interest;—a kind of interest, this, which our Lord does not refuse.  Pay me, then, my friend, by paying me a visit.  So much for the capital; what of the increment?  It is the fact of the visit being paid by you, who are a man as much superior to me, as fathers are better than children.



Placed at the end of 372 or the beginning of 373.


The mss. vary between Jovinus and Jobinus.  cf. Theodoret, Ecc. Hist. iv. 13.

Next: To Eustathius, Bishop of Sebasteia.
