#amreading p. 317 of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire

The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire: Chapter XI (“Theology and Faction”) tells a story of a “rash and obstinate” orthodox bishop named Nestorius.

“A sentiment of fear or indignation prompted him . . . The past he regretted, he was discontented with the present, and the future he had reason to dread . . . ”

He eventually died, “his tongue, the organ of blasphemy . . .  eaten by worms.”

So  much for Nestorius!

And then it’s a lot of blah blah blah about the Emperor Theodosius, the second synod of Ephesus and this thrilling announcement:

“May those who divide Christ be divided with the sword, may they be hewn in pieces, may they be burned alive!”

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
