لماذا يسمح الله بالضيقات للقديسين؟! للأب ثيؤدور (الأب تادرس) (مناظرة 6 من سلسلة المناظرات)



This Abbot Theodore is probably the same person as the one mentioned in the Institutes, Book V. cc. xxxiii.–xxxv.; but nothing further is known of him, and there is no reason for identifying him with any of the other monks of this name of the fourth century.

Next: Chapter I. Description of the wilderness, and the question about the death of the saints.
