"The Nazoreans . . . would not offer sacrifice or eat meat. They considered it unlawful to eat meat or make sacrifices with it. They claim that these Books are fictions, and that none of these customs were instituted by the fathers. This was the difference between the Nasaraeans and the others. . ."(Epipahius. Panarion 1:18)
"The early Christian fathers followed a Non-Flesh diet. The writings of the early Church, say that Flesh eating was not officially allowed by the Early Church, until the 4th Century, when the Emperor Constantine decided that Christianity would follow Flesh eating and became the official Creed of the Holy Roman Empire, and Vegetarian Christians had to practice in secret or risk being put to death for Heresy. It is said that Constantine poured molten lead down the throats of Vegetarians, if they were caught." (Stevenrosen's: FoodForTheSpirit 1987)
