Les Peres de Nicee, en robes de pourpre, se tenaient comme des mages, sur des trones, le long du mur; et on les a regales dans un banquet, en les comblant d'honneurs, surtout Paphnuce, parce qu'il est borgne et boiteux depuis la persecution de Diocletien! L'Empereur lui a baise plusieurs fois son oeil creve; quelle sottise! Du reste, le Concile avait des membres si infames! Un eveque de Scythie, Theophile; un autre de Perse, Jean; un gardeur de bestiaux, Spiridion! Alexandre etait trop vieux.

Celui qui parlait contre moi,--un grand jeune homme a barbe frisee,--me lancait, d'un air tranquille, des objections captieuses; et, pendant que je cherchais mes paroles, ils etaient a me regarder avec leurs figures mechantes, en aboyant comme des hyenes.
