Early Church Fathers  Index     

p. 317

Chapter XIX.

Of the best plan for our daily food.

Moses: On this matter we are aware that there have been frequent discussions among our Elders. For in discussing the abstinence of some who supported their lives continually on nothing but beans or only on vegetables and fruits, they proposed to all of them to partake of bread alone, the right measure of which they fixed at two biscuits, so small that they assuredly scarcely weighed a pound.


Next: Chapter XX. An objection on the ease of that abstinence in which a man is sustained by two biscuits.
