Note 157
From Chapter 21 of the Decline & Fall

See Optatus Milevitanus (particularly iii. 4), with the Donatist history by M. Dupin, and the original pieces at the end of his edition. The numerous circumstances which Augustin has mentioned, of the fury of the Circumcellions against others and against themselves, have been laboriously collected by Tillemont, Mem. Eccles. tom vi. p. 147-165; and he has often though without design, exposed the injuries which had provoked those fanatics.
