Canon LXXV.  (Greek lxxviii.)

Of asking from the Emperors defenders of the Churches.

On account of the afflictions of the poor by whose troubles the Church is worn out without any intermission, it seemed good to all that the Emperors be asked to allow defenders for them against the power of the rich to be chosen under the supervision of the bishops.


Ancient Epitome of Canon LXXV.

That the bishop be not annoyed, let Defensors be appointed.

This is Canon X. of Carthage, September, 401.
