2ND CENTURY ORTHODOX CHRISTIANITY --- VS --- THE MONTANTIST CULT!
I think most writers and commentators today are to detached from how --- Orthodox Christianity --- actually felt about or viewed the Montantists:
GREEK TEXT: “...τῆς ψευδοῦς ταύτης τάξεως τῆς ἐπικαλουμένης νέας προφητείας ἐβδέλυκται ἡ ἐνέργεια παρὰ πάσῃ τῇ ἐν κόσμῳ ἀδελφότητι...” - ( [Βιβλίον Ε´] ΙΘ Σεραπίωνος περὶ τῆς τῶν Φρυγῶν αἱρέσεως. ΕΥΣΕΒΙΟΥ ΚΑΙΣΑΡΕΙΑΣ, ΕΚΚΛΗΣΙΑΣΤΙΚΗ ΙΣΤΟΡΙΑ Eusebius Caesariensis - Historia ecclesiastica.)
EUSEBIUS OF CAESAREA (circa. 260-340 C.E. ): “...THIS LYING BAND OF THE NEW PROPHECY, SO CALLED, ARE AN ABOMINATION TO ALL THE BROTHERHOOD THROUGHOUT THE WORLD...” - (Eccl. Hist., Book 5. Chapter XIX. Verse 2, —Serapion on the Heresy of the Phrygians,” Translated by Arthur Cushman McGiffert. From Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Second Series, Vol. 1. Edited by Philip Schaff and Henry Wace. Buffalo, NY: Christian Literature Publishing Co., 1890.)
“...AN --- ( ABOMINATION ) --- TO --- ( ALL ) --- THE BROTHERHOOD THROUGHOUT THE WORLD...”
So how did they feel about them?
