(plural Athanasian wenches)
- 1901, Justin Huntly McCarthy, If I were king, page 35:
- Villon gently cooled her impatience. "Hush, hush, my girl! There are many kinds of love, as you ought to know well enough. I am a rogue and a vagabond, no less, and so sometimes I love you and other such Athanasian wenches; Isabeau there and Jehanneton."
The first words of the Athanasian Creed are, in Latin, "quicumque vult (salvus esse...)", "whoever wants to (be saved...)".
