Writings in Connection with the Donatist Controversy.: Chapter 38
Chapter 38.—73. Lucius of Thebaste 1731 said: "I declare my judgment that heretics, and blasphemers, and unrighteous men, who with various words pluck away the sacred and adorable words of the Scriptures, should be held accursed, and therefore exorcised and baptized." 1732
74. I too think that they should be held accursed, but not that therefore they should be exorcised and baptized; for it is their own falsehood which I hold accursed, but Christs sacrament which I venerate.
Thebaste (Thebeste) in ecclesiastical province of Numidia. For Lucius, cp. c. 14.496:1732
Conc. Carth. sec. 31.
