Socrates of Constantinople : Ecclesiastical History

[following heading Sophocles of Constantinople] 'I have run through his Ecclesiastical History with amusement and without contempt [...] Bk V ch. 18 on the purity campaign of Theodosius is very funny. There was a machine which lowered visitors to a brothel into a bakehouse, where they worked for the rest of their lives [....] Funny too is the bishop who trod on another bishop's foot, with the result that it festered and had to be amputated. Bk VI ch 19.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Edward Morgan Forster      Print: Book
