II. 1740

[The early Christians] called those who practised a godly guilelessness, 1741 children, [as is stated by Papias in the first book of the Lord’s Expositions, and by Clemens Alexandrinus in his Pædagogue.]



This fragment is found in the Scholia of Maximus on the works of Dionysius the Areopagite.


Literally, “a guilelessness according to God.”
