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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XVII.—“Their Makers are Like Unto Them.”

“You will hold it reasonable for ignorant men to be moderately indignant at these fancies.  But what must we say to the learned, some of whom, professing themselves to be grammarians and sophists, affirm that these acts are worthy of gods?  For, being themselves incontinent, they lay hold of this mythical pretext; and as imitators of the gods, 1041 they practise unseemly things with freedom.
