Concerning players who are doing penance and are converted to the Lord. 445
That to players and actors and other persons of that kind, as also to apostates when they are converted 446 and return to God, grace or reconciliation is not to be denied.
“Apostates,” i.e., those who elsewhere are called Lapsi; those who had done sacrifice through the violence of torment in time of persecution, professing in the meantime that their consciences did not consent to what their hands did.
