Excerpt: A Letter to the Soldiers of Coroticus

translated by John Skinner

...Carry this letter forward; may it never he hidden or stolen by anyone, but rather, may it be read aloud before the whole people. Yes, even when Coroticus himself is present. May God inspire these men sometime to come to their senses in regard to God again, so that they may repent, however latter day, of their grave crimes, namely homicide against the brothers of the Lord, and that they free these baptized women whom they have taken, so that then they may deserve to live to God and be made whole once more, here, now and for eternity. Peace to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. AMEN. (20)
