Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Vol. V:
A Work on the Proceedings of Pelagius.: Extract from Augustin’s Retractations.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

p. 178

Extract from Augustin’s “Retractations,”

Book II. Chap. 45,

On the Following Treatise,

“De gestis pelagii.”


“About the same time, in the East (that is to say, in Palestinian Syria), Pelagius was summoned by certain catholic brethren 1606 before a tribunal of bishops, and was heard on his trial by fourteen prelates, in the abscnce of his accusers, who were unable to be present on the day of the synod. On his condemning the very dogmas which were read from the indictment against him, as assailing the grace of Christ, they pronounced him to be a catholic. But when the Acts of this synod found their way into our hands, I wrote a treatise on them, to prevent the idea gaining ground that, because he had been in a manner acquitted, his opinions also were approved by the bishops; or that the accused could by any chance have escaped condemnation at their hands, unless he had condemned the opinions charged against him. This treatise of mine begins with these words: ‘After there came into my hands.’”



Their names were Heros and Lazarus.
