Chapter LVI.

Theodotus,[1][2] bishop of Ancyra in Galatia, while at[3] Ephesus, wrote against Nestorius a work of defence and refutation,[4] written, to be sure, in dialectic style, but interwoven with passages from the Holy Scriptures. His method was to make statements and then quote proof texts from the Scriptures.
