(p.8) 1 Marcellus
Marcellus of Ancyra and the Lost Years of the Arian Controversy 325-345

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents Marcellus as the ambitious and capable young canon law-maker responsible for the 314 Synod of Ancyra, with its 25 canons on penance, the recent persecution, and other subjects. He emerges as a compassionate and level-headed pastor, even-handed in his treatment of women and men, in contrast to the makers of the Canons of Iliberris (Elvira). The theology of his major work, Against Asterius, is also briefly sketched.

Keywords:   Synod of Ancyra, canon law, canons, persecution, penance, women, Iliberris, Elvira, Against Asterius
