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

CLEMENT indeed, whose words we have just cited, after the above-mentioned facts, next gives a statement of those apostles that continued in the marriage state, on account of those who set marriage aside. “And will they,” says he, “reject even the apostles? Peter and Philip, indeed, had children; Philip also gave his daughters in marriage to husbands, and Paul does not demur in a certain epistle to mention his own wife, whom he did not take about with him, in order to expedite his ministry the better.” Since, however, we have mentioned these, we shall not regret to subjoin another history worthy of record, from the same author, continued in the seventh book of the same work, Stromateus. “They relate,” says he, “that the blessed Peter, seeing his own wife led away to execution, was delighted, on account of her calling and return to her country, and that he cried to her in a consolatory and encouraging voice, addressing her by name: ‘Oh thou, remember the Lord!’ ” Such was the marriage of these blessed ones, and such was their perfect affection towards their dearest friends; and this account we have given in its proper place, as well adapted to the subject.
