(γυνὴ συνείσακτος ) is a term which was used by the great Nicene Synod in a sense synonymous to the "foemina extranea," and nearly to the "focaria" and "concubina" of later times, as well as to the " agapeta" and " dilecta" of earlier date, and is by Protestants held to be simply an expression of the council against the improper female companionship of unmarried priests. Roman Catholics, however interpret it to carry the desire for the separation from all female companionship, even the wife. See Lea, Historical Sketch of Sacerdotal Celibacy in the Christian Church, pages 51-53. (See CELIBACY).
