Life and Works of Rufinus with Jerome's Apology Against Rufinus.: You say the Bishops of Italy accept your views on the Resurrection. I doubt it.
15. What your opinions are on the resurrection of the flesh, we have already learned from your Apology. “No member will be cut off, nor any part of the body destroyed.” This is the clear and open profession which you make in your innocence, and which you say is accepted by all the bishops of Italy. I should believe your statement, but that the matter of that book which is not Pamphilus makes me doubt about you. And I wonder that Italy should have approved what Rome rejected; that the bishops should have accepted what the Apostolic see condemned.
Next: You rashly say that you will agree to whatever Theophilus lays down. You have to consider your friendship for Isidore now his enemy.
