Clement of Rome, A.D. 96
Moreover, you were all distinguished by humility, and you were not in any way puffed up with pride. You yielded obedience rather than extorting it and were more willing to give than to receive. (1 Clement 2)
Ignatius of Antioch, c. A.D. 110
Let no one deceive himself: if anyone is not within the altar, he is deprived of the bread of God. For if the prayer of one or two possesses such power [Matt. 18:19], how much more that of the bishop and the whole Church! He, therefore, that does not assemble with the church has, just by this, revealed his pride and condemned himself. For it is written, "God resists the
proud" [Prov. 3:34]. Let us be careful, then, not to set ourselves in opposition to the bishop, in order that we may be subject to God. (Letter to the Ephesians 5)
