Yes, We Lack A Better Term

PEC“Even stalwarts must live, and to some extent conform to the usages of society. Where to draw the line was a matter of debate, upon which the Church was hopelessly divided. Then, as now, there were two parties; the one, which for lack of a better term we may call Puritan, making up for the fewness of its numbers by dogmatism and devotion; the other, probably more cultured, certainly more influential, but hampered by the lack of logic and utterance so generally characteristic of the via media.” Herbert Workman, Persecution in the Early Church, pp. 126.
