Chapter 41.—80.  Honoratus of Tucca18651865     Tucca (Thucca) was in ecclesiastical province of Numidia.  Honoratus occurs as bishop’s name in Cypr. Epp. lvii., lxii., lxvii., lxx. bis.  The attempts to distinguish or to identify these are hazardous. said:  "Since Christ is the truth, we ought to follow the truth rather than custom; that we may sanctify by the baptism of the Church the heretics who come to us, simply because they could receive nothing outside."18661866     Conc. Carth. sec. 77.

81.  This man, too, is a witness to the custom, in which he gives us the greatest assistance, whatever else he may appear to say against us.  But this is not the reason why heretics come over to us, because they have received nothing outside, but that what they did receive may begin to be of use to them:  for this it could not be outside in any wise.
