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.


  1. Octavus was in ecclesiastical province of Numidia.  For Victor, cp. cc. 4, 32.
  2. Conc. Carth. sec. 78.
