This man, who presided over the church of the Novatians[1] after Chrysanthus, was first a teacher of Latin literature, then leaving the toil of grammar-teaching he turned to the ascetic life and establishing monasteries of earnest men he persevered [in a life] not different from the monks in the desert. For he became such as Evagrius[2] says the monks in the desert spent their time: for he persevered in imitating them in all respects, in continual fasting, in speaking little, in abstinence from living things; for the most part he abstained also from wine and oil. But concerning the poor he became as serious as anyone else; he looked after those in prison without hesitation. In his time a certain Jew was caught pretending to be a Christian.[3]

Quoted approximately from Socrates, Ecclesiastical History 7.17.2-7 (translation at web address 1).
[1] On the Novatians, see nu 50, nu 51.
[2] Evagrius of Pontus: epsilon 3365, mu 56.
[3] Socrates tells more of this story: the man was enriching himself by getting baptized in every sect, but Paulus the Novatian bishop miraculously uncovered his scam.
