If anyone says or holds that the power of God is limited, and that He has accomplished as much as He has comprehended, let him be anathema. (Denzinger-Hünermann 410. Pope Vigilius, Canons against Origen, from the Book against Origen of the Emperor Justinian, 543)

  • The punishment of the demons and of impious men is eternal

If anyone says or holds that the punishment of the demons and of impious men is temporary, and that it will have an end at some time, that is to say, there will be a complete restoration of the demons or of impious men, let him be anathema. (Denzinger-Hünermann 411. Synod of Constantinople, confirmed by Pope Vigilius, Canons against Origen, 543 AD)
