Councils of Arabia

Additional Links

In 246 and 247 two councils were held at Bostra in Arabia against Beryllus, Bishop of the see, and others who maintained with him that the soul perished and arose again with the body. Origen was present at these synods, and convinced these heretics of their errors (Eusebius, Church History VI.19; Baronius, Ann. Eccl. ad an., 249, sect. 6-8).
