    Chapter from the book: Barry, J. 2019. Bishops in Flight: Exile and Displacement in Late Antiquity.

Here it will be argued that the discourse of exile served as a new rhetorical and discursive mode in heresiological discourse — and a notably fluid and flexible one at that, as Christians looked to earlier literary sources to help them to understand and articulate their own experiences.
