“Mary, the holy Virgin, is truly great before God and men. For how shall we not proclaim her great, who held within her the uncontainable One, whom neither heaven nor earth can contain?”Epiphanius of Salamis, Haer., 30, 31; PG 41, 460 C.
“Whoever honors the Lord also honors the holy [vessel]; who instead dishonors the holy vessel also dishonors his Master. Mary herself is that holy Virgin, that is, the holy vessel?”Epiphanius of Salamis, Ibid., 78, 21; PG 42, 733 A.
