Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Acesius was a bishop of Constantinople, in the reign of Constantine. He was a disciple of Novatus, the founder of Novatianism, whose distinguishing doctrine was, that those who had fallen from the faith in time of persecution, or who after baptism had committed any mortal sin, were not to be admitted to the communion of the church, even if they gave evidence of sincere repentance. At the First Council of Nicaea, in 325, Constantine inquired of Acesius, whom, though separated from the communion of the church, he had invited to the council, about the ground of his separation.show more
