Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bonusus was a Bishop of Sardica in the latter part of the fourth century, founder of the heresy, known after him as Bonosians. Against the common teaching of the Catholic Church he held that, after Jesus, Mary had several other children. The Council of Capua in 391, before which the matter was brought, did not pass any judgment on it, but referred it to the Metropolitan Anysius of Thessalonica and the other bishops of Illyria. They condemned Bonosus and tried to exclude him from his church. In a letter to the same bishops Pope Siricius approves the sentence and also condemns the opinion that Mary did not always preserve her virginity. Notwithstanding his condemnation, and the prudent advice of his study friend St. Ambrose to submit, Bonosus continued to exercise the episcopal functions, to consecrate bishops and ordain priests.show more
