Excerpt from Library of Fathers of the Holy Catholic Church: Anterior to the Division of the East and West
Arians seized upon the Church Of Jerusalem, and promised Cyril the see on condition Of his renouncing the ordination he had received from Maximus, and submitting to re-ordina tion from their hands; that he assented, served in the Church as a mere Deacon, and was then raised by Acacias to the Episcopate, when he persecuted Heraclius, whom Maximus had consecrated as his successor. This account, incredible in itself, is contradicted, on the one hand, by the second General Council, which in its Synodal letter plainly states that he had been canonically ordained Bishop, and on the other by his own-writings, which as plainly shew, that in doctrine he was in no respect an Arian or an Arianizer.
