36. THE QUESTION WAS: According to Augustine, in what chair did both Peter and Anastasius sit?

  1. The Chair of the Roman Church
  2. The Chair of No Authority
  3. The Chair of Sola Fide
  4. The Chair of Disappearing Hierarchy


THE ANSWER IS….A….The Chair of the Roman Church

St.  Anastasius was the 39th pope (38th successor of Peter)

Augustine wrote: "If all men throughout the world were such as you most vainly accuse them of having been, what has the chair of the Roman church done to you, in which Peter sat, and in which Anastasius sits today?" (Against the Letters of Petilani 2:118 [A.D. 402]).
