Note 080
From Chapter 32 of the Decline & Fall

Theodoret, 1. v. c. 39. Tillemont, Mem. Eccles. tom. xii. p. 356-364. Assemanni, Bibliot. Oriental. tom. iii. p. 396, tom. iv. p. 61. Theodoret blames the rashness of Abdas, but extols the constancy of his martyrdom. Yet I do not clearly understand the casuistry which prohibits our repairing the damage which we have unlawfully committed.
