Eusebius (5)

Eusebius bishop of Thessalonica, A.D. 601, wrote against the Aphthartodocetae, especially in reply to a, monk Andreas, "who taught that Christ's body became incorruptible when joined to his divinity; that Adam's body was not created liable to corruption; and that the world, in its original form, was incorruptiblealso." These and other errors Eusebius wished him to retract; but, instead of prevailing, Andreas attempted to fortify his posts by farther defenses, which induced Eusebius to write ten books against the positions he had before attacked, showing that Andreas had misunderstood Scripture and willfully misquoted the fathers. Of these works there are no remains except what are preserved by Photius in his Biblioth Cod. 162. — Cave, Hist. Lit. (Genev. 1720), 1:373; Clarke, Succ. Sac. Lit. 2:376.
