1 Anastasins in his Interpretatio (Migne, Pat.. Lat. Tom. CXXIX., col. 458), gives the word, "Filioque". Cardinal Julian in the Fifth Session of the Concil of Florence gave evidence that there was then extant a very ancient codex containing these words; and this ms., which was in Greek, was actually shown. The Greek scholar Gemistius Pletho remarked that if this were so, then the Latin theologians, like St. Thomas Aquinas would long ago have appealed to the Synod. (Cf, Hefele, Hist. Councils, Vol ., p. 374,Note 2.) This reasoning is not conclusive if Cardinal Bellarmine is to be believed, who says that St. Thomas had never seen the Acts of this synod. (De Imag. Sanct., Lib. ii., cap. xxii.)
