An Ecclesiastical History To The 20th Year Of The Reign Of Constantine by Eusebius

IN the same work he also makes mention of the historian Miltiades, who also wrote a book against the same heresy. After quoting some passages from it, he adds: “As I found these statements in one of their works against another work written by our brother Alcibiades, in which he demonstrates the impropriety of a prophet’s speaking in ecstasy; this work I have abridged.” After stating other matters, he enumerates those who had prophesied under the New Testament. Among these he mentions one Ammias and Quadratus. “But the false prophet,” says he, “is carried away by a vehement ecstasy, accompanied by want of all shame and fear; beginning, indeed, with a designed ignorance, and terminating, as beforesaid, in involuntary madness. They will never be able to show that any in the Old or New Testament were thus violently agitated and carried away in spirit. Neither will they be able to boast that Agabus, or Judas, or Silas, or the daughters of Philip, or Ammias in Philadelphia, or Quadratus, or others that do not belong to them, ever acted in this way.” Again, after a little, he says, “If after Quadratus and Ammias in Philadelphia, the women that followed Montanus succeeded in the gift of prophecy, let them show us what women among them succeeded Montanus and his women. For the apostle shows that the gift of prophecy should be in all the church until the coming of the Lord, but they can by no means show any one at this time, the fourteenth year from the death of Maximilla.” Thus far this author. But the Miltiades mentioned by him has left other monuments of his study in the holy Scriptures, both in the works that he wrote against the Greeks and those against the Jews. Both treatises are written in two separate volumes. He has, moreover, written a work against the philosophers of the age, in favour of the philosophy which he embraced.
