Decree X.

WHereas the Church of Angamale, called the

Archbishop's, was built by Mir- Abraham, and dedicated to Hormisda the Abbot, commonly called St. Hormufio, who was a Nestorian Heretick, and a great' Ring-leader of thát Sect, and for that reason was abhorred by all Catholicks, who are called Romans, as is reported in his Life writ in the Surian Tongue, and which was ordained to be burnt by the most Illustrious Metropolitan, upon the account of the manifold Heresies and Blasphemies contained therein, and the many false Miracles said to be wrought by him, in confirmation of the Nestorian Se&t : Therefore the Synod does in virtue of Obedience, and upon pain of Excommunication, to be ipso facto incurred; prohibit the Observation of the two Festivities that have been dedicated to his Memory, the one upon the first of September, the other sixteen days after Easter; and the dedicating of any Church to him, commanding the abovenamed Church to be dedicated to St. Hore misda the Martyr, who was also a Persian, and whose Festivity is celebrated upon the 8th. of August, upon which day the Feast of the said Church shall be observed ; and on the Retablo they are to make the Picture, wherein the Martyrdom of the said Saint shall be drawn to the best advantage, that so the People may learn to what Saint the said Church is dedicated, and all the


Prayers and Devotion that used to be performed upon the Festivities of the Heretick Hormisda, may be directed to this Glorious Saint:

Decree XI.

Eeing in the Creed, or Holy Symbol of Faitli,

ordained by the Sacred Apostles, and declared by the Holy Councils, which is sung in the Mass, all the principal Mysteries and Articles of our Faith are contained, it is not fit that any thing shonld be added to it, or taken from it, but that it should be sung in this Bishoprick as it is all over the Universal Church ; wherefore the Synod doth Order, that the words which are wanting in the Creed that is said in the Mass be added to it ; where speaking of Christ, it it said, that he was born of the Father before all Times, there is wanting, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, that so it may in all things he conformable to what is sung in the Universal Church, using also the word Consubftantial to the Father, and not what is said instead thereof in the Shri. an, Son of the Esence of the Father.

Decree XII.

Otwithstanding it is contrary to the Sacred

Canons, That the Children of Christians should go to School to Heathen Masters : Nevertheless, seeing this Church is under so many Heathen Kings, who many times will not suffer any L 4


but Infidels to be Schoolmasters; wherefore the Synod doth command and declare, That in all Schools, whether for Reading or Writing, wherein the Masters have Pagods, to which they oblige their Children at :heir coming into the School to pay their Reverence, as the Custom is ; that it fall not be lawful for Christian Parents or Guardians to fend Christian Children to such Schools, upon pain of being proceeded against as Idolaters; but if there should be any such Schools, wherein the Heathen Masters will con. fent that Christian Children shall pay no Reverence, nor be obliged to any Heathen Ceremony, in case there is no Christian Master near, they may be sent to such Schools, their Parents instructing them that they must pay no reverence but only to the Master, and that they must use none of the Ceremonies of the Heathen Children, that so they may not * suck in Idolatry as Mothers Milk. Furthermore, the Synod doth earnestly recommend it to all Towns and Villages, to do all that is in their power to have their Children Educated by Christian Masters, and as for Reading and Writing, to have the Parish Priests to teach them to do that in their
