Si quis Episcopus, aut Presbyter, aut Diaconus, ab aliquo secundam susceperit ordinationem, deponatur et ipse, et qui manus imposuit ; nisi forte constet ab Hæreticis habere ordinationem. Nec enim possibile est & talibus ordinatos aut baptizatos esse fideles aut Clericos.

Episcopum criminis ab hominibus gravibus et fide dignis accusatum vocari oportet ab Episcopis. Qui si ad judicium adfuerit, et confessus, aut argumentis convictus fuerit, pæna definiatur. Si vero citatus non accesserit, secundo vocetur, ad eum missis duobus Episcopis. Similiter quoque si non paruerit, tertio vocator, ad ipsum rursus Episcopos duos mittendo. Si ne sic quidem contumax 'et per fastum venerit, Synodus in eum pronunciet, quæ visa fuerint; ne judicium tergiversatione detrectans lucrari quippiam videatur.

If a Bishop be accused of any crime, by persons worthy of credit, let him be cited by Bishops; and if he appear, and confess it, let the punishment be fixed (as if] he had been convicted. But if, when cited, he shall not obey, let him be cited a second time, by sending two Bishops to him. If he does not even then pay attention, let him be cited a third time, by sending two Bishops again to him. But if he then be in contempt, and does not appear, let the Synod pronounce against him what is fitting, in order that he may not seem to gain any thing by Aying from a trial.

μηδε πιστόν ένα?· επίθ στόματος γαρ δύο ή τριών μαρτύρων σταθήσεται πάν ρήμα.

[I. Cot. in text, προσδέχεσθε: in marg. as here-2. ένα μόνον marg. ed. 2, and Cot. in text-3. Cot. in text φησί γαρ ο νόμος επί-: but in marg. ' aliter in aliis.'-4. Cot. in text, kaè: in marg. . al. ñ.']

Hæreticum ne recipias in testimonium contra Episcopum ; sed neque fidelem unum solum. Nam duorum vel trium sermone testium quodeunque negocium stabit et firmabitur.

76. "Ότι μη χρή τον επίσκοπον τώ αδελφό ή το νερό ή το' συγγενεί χαριζόμενον εις το αξίωμα της επισκοπής χειροτονείν, δν βούλεται κληρονόμους γαρ της επίσκοπής ποιείσθαι ου δίκαιον τα του θεού, χαριζόμενον πάθει ανθρωπίνω: ου γαρ τήν του Θεού εκκλησίαν υπό κληρονομίαν οφείλει τιθέναι: ει δέ τις τούτο ποιήσει, άκυρος μέν έστω και χειροτονία αυτός δε επιτιμάσθω αφορισμό.

[Ι. ή ετέρω marg. ed. 2, and so Cot. in text-2. marg. ed. 2, χαρίζεσθαι πάθει ανθρωπίνω" ου γαρ-3. εις Cot. omits in text; in marg. al. είς'-4. ους Cot. In text; in marg. al. όν'-5.

Non decet Episcopum fratri, vel filio, vel alteri cognato gratificantem in episcopatus dignitatem, quemcunque velit, assumere. Non enim justum est, quæ Dei sunt, hunc humano affectu largientem hæredes aliquos episcopatus adoptare ; nec debet ecclesiam Dei pro hæreditate ducere. Si quis autem hoc fecerit, irrita sit ordinatio ; ipse vero ab ecclesiâ segregetur.

It is not meet that a Bishop, to show favour to his brother, or his son, or his relation, should advance to the dignity of a bishopric whomsoever he pleases; for it is not right to admit persons to a share in the Episcopal office, giving away that which belongs to God, to gratify human feeling; for it is not meet to consider the Church of God in the light of an inheritance; and if any does so, let the imposition of hands be of no effect, and himself be punished by being put out of communion.
