Letter CLXXXII. 2596

To the presbyters of Samosata.

Grieved as I am at the desolation of the Church, 2597 I none the less congratulate you on having been brought so soon to this extreme limit of your hard struggle.  God grant that you may pass through it with patience, to the end that in return for your faithful stewardship, and the noble constancy which you have shewn in Christ’s cause, you may receive the great reward.



Placed in 374.


Specially the exile of Eusebius.

Next: To the Senate of Samosata.
