|Fragment number||Vinzent 121
|Ancient source used||Eusebius, Against Marcellus 1.4.|
|Modern edition||M. Vinzent, Markell von Ankyra: Die Fragmente (Leiden, 1997).|
|Italicized text is a reconstruction of the thoughts of Marcellus which are paraphrased by Eusebius. It is included here because it demonstrates Marcellus’ understanding of his opponents’ position as polytheism.|
And also his father Paulinus, having been convinced by these words, does not shrink from both saying and writing these things, once saying, “Christ is a second god” and “he has become a more human god,” and once determining that “he is a creature.” For this is the case, and once as he was passing through Ancyra he claimed to us that “Christ is a creature.” I have refuted Paulinus. He says there are multiple gods.
