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

MANY learned men of the church also flourished in these times, of whom we may easily find epistles, which they wrote to one another, still extant. These have been also preserved for us in the library of Ælia, which was built by Alexander, who was bishop there. From this we have also been able to collect materials for our present work. Of these Beryllus has left us, together with epistles and treatises, also different kinds of works written with elegance and taste. He was bishop of Bostra, in Arabia. Hippolytus, also, who was bishop of another church, has left us some works. There is besides, a discussion that has come down to us, of Caius, a most learned man, held at Rome in the times of Zephyrinus, against Proclus, who contended for the Phrygian heresy; in which, whilst he silences the rashness and daring of his opponents in composing new books (i. e. of Scripture), he makes mention of only thirteen epistles, not reckoning that to the Hebrews with the rest; as there are, even to this day, some of the Romans who do not consider it to be the work of the apostles.
