Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Vol. IV:
Writings in Connection with the Donatist Controversy.: Chapter 41

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter 41.—80.  Honoratus of Tucca 1865 said:  "Since Christ is the truth, we ought to follow the truth rather than custom; that we may sanctify by the baptism of the Church the heretics who come to us, simply because they could receive nothing outside." 1866

81.  This man, too, is a witness to the custom, in which he gives us the greatest assistance, whatever else he may appear to say against us.  But this is not the reason why heretics come over to us, because they have received nothing outside, but that what they did receive may begin to be of use to them:  for this it could not be outside in any wise.



Tucca (Thucca) was in ecclesiastical province of Numidia.  Honoratus occurs as bishop’s name in Cypr. Epp. lvii., lxii., lxvii., lxx. bis.  The attempts to distinguish or to identify these are hazardous.


Conc. Carth. sec. 77.

Next: Chapter 42
