Chapter 38.—73.  Lucius of Thebaste17311731     Thebaste (Thebeste) in ecclesiastical province of Numidia.  For Lucius, cp. c. 14. said:  "I declare my judgment that heretics, and blasphemers, and unrighteous men, who with various words pluck away the sacred and adorable words of the Scriptures, should be held accursed, and therefore exorcised and baptized."17321732     Conc. Carth. sec. 31.

74.  I too think that they should be held accursed, but not that therefore they should be exorcised and baptized; for it is their own falsehood which I hold accursed, but Christ’s sacrament which I venerate.
