Fermentarians

Fermentarians

(Fermentarii), a name given to the Greek Church by the Latins, because the former use leavened bread in the Eucharist; the Greeks calling the Latins Azymites (q.v.). The word fermentum was used, even in the Latin Church, at an. early period, to designate the Eucharist, showing that then fermented bread was used.-Bingham, Orig. Eccles. bk. 15:ch. ii, § 5.
