Synod of Laodicea (363-364 AD):

…judges Francis’ ideas on martyrdom

  • The ‘Martyrs’ of the Heretics are Aliens from God

Canon 9: The members of the Church are not allowed to meet in the cemeteries, nor attend the so-called martyrs of any of the heretics, for prayer or service. […]
Canon 34: No Christian shall forsake the martyrs of Christ, and turn to false martyrs, for they are aliens from God. Let those, therefore, who go after them, be anathema.  (Synod of Laodicea, The Canons, Canon 9/34)
