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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXXIII.

Helvidius, 2626 a disciple of Auxentius and imitator of Symmachus, wrote, indeed, with zeal for religion but not according to knowledge, a book, polished neither in language nor in reasoning, a work in which he so attempted to twist the meaning of the Holy Scriptures to his own perversity, as to venture to assert on their testimony that Joseph and Mary, after the nativity of our Lord, had children who were called brothers of the p. 392 Lord. In reply to his perverseness Jerome, published a book against him, well filled with scripture proofs. 2627
