Cyprian and the Novatianist Schism — Ivana, Selmira, Sequioa, Maggie, Simron

There were three different positions among that “lapsed.” The first being the Laxists, which let everyone back in. The second is the Moderates where they decided to let them back in after persecution. Finally, there were the Rigorists who did not let anyone back into the church. Cyprian was the main moderate and emphasized unity of the church. Novatian was a rigorist.
