Emperor Honorius condemns the doctrines of Pelagius and Caelestius, expels them and their followers from the cities, and has their property confiscated.

Part of Honorius' criticism is that they:

"think that it is a mark of lower class pettiness to agree with everyone else, and think that they are exceptionally knowledgeable, because they destroy what is agreed upon by the whole community."

Once again, the Roman state is getting involved with internal church disagreements, favoring one side over another to influence which side will come to be called "orthodox."
