Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. III:
Jerome and Gennadius. Lives of Illustrious Men.: Serapion the bishop.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XLI.

Serapion2449 ordained bishop of Antioch in the eleventh year of the emperor Commodus, wrote a letter to Caricus and Pontius 2450 on the heresy of Montanus, in which he said “that you may know moreover that the madness of this false doctrine, that is the p. 372 doctrine of a new prophecy, is reprobated by all the world, I have sent to you the letters of the most holy Apollinaris bishop of Hierapolis in Asia.” He wrote a volume also to Domnus, who in time of persecution went over to the Jews, and another work on the gospel which passes under the name of Peter, a work to the church of the Rhosenses in Cilicia who by the reading of this book had turned aside to heresy. There are here and there short letters of his, harmonious in character with the ascetic life of their author.
