Chapter 42.—82.  Victor of Octavus[1] said:  "As ye yourselves also know, I have not been long appointed a bishop, and therefore I waited for the counsel of my seniors.  This therefore I express as my opinion, that whosoever comes from heresy should undoubtedly be baptized."[2]

83.  What, therefore, has been answered to those for whom he waited, may be taken as the answer also to himself.
