Headword: Ἰουλιανός
Adler number: iota,436
Translated headword: Ioulianos, Iulianus, Julian [of Halicarnassus]
Vetting Status: high
[Julian] of Halicarnassus desired to renew the evil teaching of Severus, claiming that the body of Christ our God was incorruptible, that is, [because of] the union in the womb of his divinity and his body, even earlier than the resurrection of Christ from the departed. It remains to infer from this that it was not by some activity [of their own] that the Jews tortured and killed the Christ. So as the opinion was lame and weak, it was rejected by the ancient divinely-inspired fathers. Then indeed Julian not thinking appropriately either because of old age or because of excessive concern for Christ, falling away from the true and accurate opinion, or because someone else changed his teaching -– for this is whispered, that a priest of some city introduced this most wicked opinion to Julian … so he was about to proclaim the correct teaching of Christ, and he sent Marinus of Carrhae the city in Syria to confirm the dogma throughout the East, if he had not departed from men after a short time.[1]
This Julian became the most eager defender of the heresy of Severus, [although] Severus said that Christ had one nature and accepted the distinction in Christ, but Julian like Severus said that [Christ had] one nature, but he rejected the distinction.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἰουλιανός, Ἁλικαρνασεύς, ἀναρρῶσαι ἠβουλήθη τὴν Σεβήρου κακοδοξίαν, ἄφθαρτον εἶναι φάσκων τὸ σῶμα τοῦ Χριστοῦ καὶ θεοῦ, αὐτῆς γε δήπου τῆς ἐν τῇ νηδύϊ τῆς θεότητος ἑνώσεως καὶ τοῦ σώματος, καὶ πρώην γε τῆς ἐκ τῶν κατοιχομένων τοῦ Χριστοῦ ἀναστάσεως. λοιπὸν ἐκ τοῦ τοιοῦδε εἰσάγεσθαι, οὐκ ἐνεργείᾳ τινὶ τοὺς Ἰουδαίους αἰκίσασθαί τε καὶ θανατῶσαι τὸν Χριστόν. ἅτε οὖν σκάζουσά τε καὶ οὐκ ἐρρωμένη ἡ δόξα, πρὸς τῶν πάλαι θεσπεσίων πατέρων ἐξωθισθεῖσα ἐτύγχανε. τότε δὴ Ἰουλιανὸς εἴτε ὑπὸ τοῦ γήρως τὰ καιριώτατα οὐ φρονῶν εἴτ' οὖν ὑπερβολῇ τῆς πρὸς Χριστὸν ἐπιμελείας, τῆς ἀληθοῦς τε καὶ ἀπταίστου δόξης ἐπέκεινα ἐκπεσών, εἴτε καὶ ἑτέρου τινὸς ἀναδιδάξαντος: ὑποψιθυρίζεται γὰρ καὶ τοῦτο, ὡς πόλεώς τινος ἱερεὺς ταύτην δήπου τὴν κακίστην δόξαν Ἰουλιανῷ εἰσηγήσατο: ἔμελλεν οὖν τὴν ὀρθογνώμονα τοῦ Χριστοῦ δόξαν διακηρύττειν: καὶ δὴ Μαρῖνον τὸν ἀπὸ Κάρρων τῆς ἐν Συρίᾳ πόλεως ἔστειλεν ἀνὰ τὴν ἕω βεβαιῶσαι τὸ δόγμα, εἰ μὴ μετὰ βραχὺν χρόνον ᾤχετο ἐξ ἀνθρώπων. ὅτι ὁ Ἰουλιανὸς οὗτος τῆς Σευήρου κακοδοξίας προστάτης ἐγένετο εὐθυμότατος, Σευήρου μὲν μίαν φύσιν λέγοντος τὸν Χριστὸν καὶ τὴν ἐν τῷ Χριστῷ διαφορὰν δεχομένου, Ἰουλιανοῦ δὲ μίαν μὲν κατὰ Σεβῆρον φάσκοντος φύσιν, ἀναιροῦντος δὲ τὴν διαφοράν.
