Note 101
From Chapter 23 of the Decline & Fall

Ancient Greek certatim eum sibi (Christiani) vindicant.

It is thus that La Croze and Wolfius (ad loc.) have explained a Greek word whose true signification had been mistaken by former interpreters, and even by Le Clerc (Bibliotheque Ancienne et Moderne, tom. iii. p. 371) . Yet Tillemont is strangely puzzled to understand (Mem. Eccles. tom. vii. p.1309) how Gregory and Theodoret could mistake a Semi-Arian bishop for a saint.
