Adler number: alpha,3835
Translated headword: Arian
Vetting Status: high
[Arian[1]] and I act like an Arianist and Arianists and suchlike terms [derive] from Arius the heresiarch. At the time of Constantine the Great[2] he was ordained among the holy presbyters, but when he wanted to confound everything and had been condemned by the synod of 318 holy bishops in Nicaea,[3] he perished by a strange and new sort of death. For when he was in the forum of the city and his stomach ailed him, he turned off towards the privy and he was drained of all the necessary things inside of him along with his excretions. And out of him also [comes the word] Areiophrones ["Arius-minded [people]"].[4]
Greek Original:
Ἀρειανὸς καὶ Ἀρειανίζω καὶ Ἀρειανισταὶ καὶ τὰ τούτοις ὅμοια, ἀπὸ Ἀρείου τοῦ αἱρεσιάρχου: ὃς ἐπὶ τοῦ μεγάλου Κωνσταντίνου ἐν τοῖς ἱερωμένοις πρεσβυτέροις τεταγμένος, ἐπειδὴ τὰ πάντα συγχεῖν ἐβούλετο, καταδικασθεὶς ὑπὸ τῆς ἐν Νικαίᾳ τῶν τιη# ἁγίων πατέρων συνόδου, διεφθάρη ἀήθει καὶ καινῷ τοῦ θανάτου τρόπῳ. ἐν γὰρ τῷ τῆς πόλεως φόρῳ, ἐπειχθείσης οἱ τῆς γαστρὸς, ἀποκλίνας εἰς ἀπόπατον ἅμα σὺν τοῖς διαφορήμασι πάντων ἐκενώθη τῶν ἐντὸς ἀναγκαίων. καὶ ἐξ αὐτοῦ καὶ Ἀρειόφρονες.
