A History Of The Church In Five Books by Theodoret

ALL the people at this juncture persuaded this great man, he being the only one among them who was not intimidated, to go on an embassy to Gaïnas. He did not stop to reflect upon the altercation which had taken place between them, nor on the probable resentment of the barbarian, but repaired willingly to Thrace. When Gaïnas heard of the approach of him whose fidelity in defending religion he well remembered, he joyfully travelled a long way to meet him; and when he saw him, he placed his right hand on his eyes, and drew his children round his knees. Thus does virtue charm and intimidate her very opponents.
