Click here for Marcellus’ biography.

While Marcellus’ Against Asterius has not survived as a whole, many excerpts were incorporated into patristic works and have been collected most recently in the editions of Klostermann and Vinzent. No English translation has ever appeared in print. We offer translations of the fragments here.
