Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. VIII:
The Letters.: To the presbyters of Antioch.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Letter CCLIII. 3117

To the presbyters of Antioch. 3118

The anxious care which you have for the Churches of God will to some extent be assuaged by our very dear and very reverend brother Sanctissimus the presbyter, when he has told you of the love and kindness felt for us by all the West.  But, on the other hand, it will be roused afresh and made yet keener, when he has told you in person what zeal is demanded by the present position of affairs.  All other authorities have told us, as it were, by halves, the minds of men in the West, and the condition of things there.  He is very competent to understand men’s minds, and to make exact enquiry into the condition of affairs, and he will tell you everything and will guide your good will through the whole business.  You have matter before you p. 293 appropriate to the excellent will which you have always shewn in your anxiety on behalf of the Churches of God.



Placed in 376.


This and the three following letters are complimentary and consolatory epistles conveyed by Sanctissimus on his return to Rome.  It does not appear quite certain whether they are to be referred to the period of his return from his second journey to the East in 376, or that of his earlier return in 374.  cf. Letters cxx. and ccxxi.

Next: To Pelagius, bishop of the Syrian Laodicea.
