Chapter 27.—52.  Also another Felix of Buslaceni18331833     Buslaceni (Cussaceni) is probably Byzacium, the capital of province of Byzacium, since we know that it was also called Bizica Lucana; others place it in Africa Proconsularis.  For Felix, cp. Bk. VI. cc. 19 and 23. said:  "In admitting heretics to the Church without baptism, let no one place custom before reason and truth; for reason and truth always exclude custom."18341834     Conc. Carth. sec. 63.
