1 Beveridge, Synodicon., tom.I., p. vi. et seqq. (Bev. Works, tom. II., Append. p. xiii. et seqq. [Anglo.-Cath. Lib.]).

1 This is the heading in the Acts of the IIId Council. Labbe, Conc., tom. iii., 671.

2 This is the heading in the Acts of the IVth Council. Labbe, Conc., tom. iv., 339.

3 This word, in the Greek trepto\n is translated in the Latin convettibilem, but see side note in Labbe.

4 Our older English writers usually wrote this word "homoonusion," and thus spoke of the doctrine as "the doctrine of the homoousion." For the Arian word they wrote "homoiousion." Later writers have used the norninative masculine, "homoousios" and "homoiousios". The great Latin writers did not thus transliterate the word, but, wrote "homousios," and for the heretical word "homoaesios" or "homaesios." I have kept for the noun signifying the doctrine, our old English "Homoousion," but for the adjective, I have used the ordinary latinized form "homousios," in this copying Smith and Wace, Dict. Christian Antiquities.

5 Athanas, De Decret. Syn.Nic. c. xix. et seq.

6 Vide Swainson, in Srnith and Wace, Dict. Chridt. Biog., sub voce Homousios, p 134.

7 Vasquez. Disput. cix., cap. v. "Rightly doth the Church use the expression Homousios (that is Consubstantial) to express that the Father and the Son are of the same nature".

8 Vasquez may also well be consulted on the expressions ousi/a, substantia, u|po/stasij, etc.

2 Leontius while still a presbyter lived with a subintroducta at Antioch, whose name was Eustolion, so we learn from St. Athanasius, Theodoret (H. E. ii. 24) and Socrates (H. E. ii. 26); as he could not part from her and wished to prevent her leaving him, he mutilated himself. His bishop deposed him for this act, but the Emperor Constantius (not Constantine, as by a mistake in the English Hefele, I. p. 377) practically forced him into the episcopal throne of Antioch.
