Volume Two, Part Two of John Chrysostom and His Time
“With Chrysostom’s refusal to act as judge over Theophilus, the stroke of fate fell. Legally considered, the affair had now come to a dead end. Theophilus would have been able to return home, with his Egyptian Bishops. But he was not of a mind to do that. He had come there to depose Chrysostom, and he was in absolute earnest about it. Now the Emperor had only to promise, and the game was won. But it appears that Arcadius always agreed with the one who spoke to him last. So while the one party remained completely passive, the other set every means going to attain by force what was not to be had by law. Theophilus preserved in this, at least, the dignity of a statesman. Severian and Antiochus, on the contrary, allowed their agitation to appear so openly and rudely that even actors ridiculed them on the stage, to the joy of their very mixed audiences. The quarrel among the Bishops had already grown into a public scandal.”
