Notable Quote: Jerome

Jerome (347–420) on dealing with heresy . . .

Cut off the decayed flesh, expel the mangy sheep from the fold, as otherwise the whole house, the whole paste, the whole body, and the whole flock, will burn, perish, rot, or die. Arius was but one spark in Alexandria, but as that spark was not extinguished at once, the whole civilized world was devastated by its flame.
