Note 127
From Chapter 20 of the Decline & Fall

See Tillemont, tom. vi. p. 915, and Beausobre, Hist. du Manicheisme, tom. i. p. 529. The name of bishop, which is given by Eutychius to the 2048 eeclesiastics (Annal. tom. i. p. 440, vers. Pocock), must be extended far beyond the limits of an orthodox or even episcopal ordination.
