The Life Of The Blessed Emperor Constantine -Eusebius Pamphilus

IN such occupations as these he employed himself with pleasure: but the effects of that envious spirit which so disturbed the peace of the Churches of God in Alexandria, together with the Theban and Egyptian schism, continued to cause him no little anxiety of mind. For in fact, in every city bishops were engaged in obstinate conflict with bishops, and people rising against people; and almost, like the fabled Symplegades, coming into violent collision with each other. Nay, some were so far transported beyond the bounds of reason as to be guilty of reckless and outrageous conduct, and even to insult the statues of the emperor. This state of things had little power to excite his anger, but rather caused in him sorrow of spirit; for he deeply deplored the folly thus exhibited by misguided men.
