Headword: Θευδέριχος
Adler number: theta,297
Translated headword: Theuderikhos, Theoderic, Theodoric
Vetting Status: high
Theodoric, the African,[1] had a certain orthodox deacon whom he loved and favored very much. This deacon, thinking to please Theodoric, deserted the homoousian faith,[2] and adopted the heresy of Arius.[3] When Theodoric learned this, he at once beheaded the man whom he loved so much, saying, "If you did not keep faith with God, how will you keep a good conscience with man?"
Greek Original:
Θευδέριχος. ὅτι Θευδέριχος, ὁ Ἄφρος, διάκονόν τινα εἶχεν ὀρθόδοξον, ὃν πάνυ ἠγάπα καὶ ἔθαλπεν. οὗτος δὲ ὁ διάκονος νομίζων Θευδερίχῳ χαρίζεσθαι, τῆς ὁμοουσίου πίστεως ἀποστάς, τὰ Ἀρείου ἐφρόνησε. γνοὺς δὲ τοῦτο Θευδέριχος, τὸν οὕτως ἀγαπώμενον εὐθέως ἀπεκεφάλισεν εἰπών: εἰ τῷ θεῷ πίστιν οὐκ ἐφύλαξας, πῶς ἀνθρώπῳ φυλάξεις συνείδησιν ὑγιαίνουσαν;
Theodore the Reader PG 86.193b. For Theodoric see already theta 296.
[1] Theodoric was born near Carnuntum in Pannonia, so why he should be given such an epithet is not clear.
