Christ Has Committed to the Church the Uncovered Virtues Themselves and a Heavenly Life

“And as himself the true and only Christ of God, he has filled the whole earth with the truly august and sacred name of Christians, committing to his followers no longer types and images, but the uncovered virtues themselves, and a heavenly life in the very doctrines of truth” (Eusebius, The Church History, Translated by Arthur McGiffert, I.III.12.).
