[322:5] These names are, of course, pure inventions of Dr. Westcott's fancy.

[322:6] On the Canon, p. 255 f. (Since these remarks were first made, Dr. Westcott has somewhat enlarged his account of Basilides, but we still consider that his treatment of the subject is deceptive and incomplete.)

[323:1] Ausus fuit et Basilides scribere Evangelium et suo illud nominee titulare.   Origen, Hom. i. in Lucam.
Ausus est etiam Basilides Evangelium scribere quod dicitur secundum Basilidem.

[324:7] Dr. Westcott admits this technical use of the word, of course (On the Canon, p. 255 f., note 4).

[329:4] Stromata, 6:3.

[329:5] And very little from Tischendorf. (In the 4th ed. of his work, Dr. Westcott has added some observations regarding these subjectless quotations, but still most inadequately states the case.)

[329:6] On the Canon, p. 256.

[329:7] Ib., p. 256.

[330:1] Irenaeus, Adv. Haer., 3:4, §3; Eusebius, H. E., 4:11.

[330:2] Hilgenfeld, Zeitschr. wiss. Theol., 1865, p. 329.

[330:3] "Die Angabe des Irenäus bestärkt und vervollständigt Hippolytus, denn er führt einzelne Johanneische Aussprüche an, welche Valentin benutzt hat. Am deutlichsten geschieht dies mit Joh. 10:8; denn Hippolytus schreibt: Weil die Propheten und das Gesetz, nach Valentins Lehre, nur von einem untergeordneten und thörichten Geiste erfüllt waren, so sagt Valentin: Eben deshalb spricht der Erlöser: Alle die vor mir gekommen sind, sind Diebe und Mörder gewesen."   Wann wurden, u. s. w., p. 44.

[331:1] Hippolytus, Ref. Omn. Haer., 6:35.

[331:2] Wann wurden, u.s.w., p. 44.

[331:4] Ib., Adv. Haer., 1:8, § 2.

[331:5] Ib., 1:3, § 3.

[332:1] Ib., 1:3, § 2.

[332:2] Ib., 1: 3, § 4.

[332:3] Wann wurden, u.s.w., p. 45.

[332:4] Irenaeus, Adv. Haer. Praef., i., § 2.

[333:1] Irenaeus, Adv. Haer., 1:8, § 1.

[333:2] Ib., 1:11, § 1

[333:3] As, for instance, 2:16, § 4.

[333:4] For instance, "Secundum autem eos qui sunt a Valentino," 3:11, § 2. "Secundum autem illos," § 3;"ab omnibus illos," § 3. "Hi autem qui sunt a Valentino," etc., § 7, ib., § 9, etc.

[334:1]On the Canon, p. 259 f. [in the 4th ed. of his work, published since the above remarks were made, Dr. Westcott has modified or withdrawn his assertions regarding Valentinus. As we cannot well omit the above passage, it is right to state that the lines quoted now read: "The few unquestionable fragments of Valentinus contain but little which points to passages of Scripture. If it were clear that the anonymous quotations in Hippolytus were derived from Valentinus himself, the list would be much enlarged, and include a citation of the Epistle to the Ephesians as 'Scripture,' and clear references to the Gospels of St. Luke and St. John, to 1 Corinthians, perhaps also to the Epistle to the Hebrews, and the first Epistle of St. John" (p. 295 f.).   In a note he adds: "But a fresh and careful examination of the whole section of Hippolytus makes me feel that the evidence is so uncertain that I cannot be sure in this case, as in the case of Basilides, that Hippolytus is quoting the words of the Founder" (p. 295, n. 5). Under these circumstances, the statements even in the amended edition present many curious features.

[334:2] Ib., p. 260, note 2.

[335:1] Clem. Al., Strom., 2: 20, § 114.

[335:2] Westcott, On the Canon, p. 260, note 2.

[335:3] Mark 10:18. and Luke 18:18 are linguistically more distant. "Why callest thou me good? There is none good but God only." Oudeis agathos ei mê eis ho Theos.

[335:4] Adv. Haer., 1:20, § 1.

[335:5] Ib., 1:20, § 2.

[335:6] Epiphanius, Haer., 42; Schol. L. ea. Pet., p. 339.

[336:1] De Principiis, 1: 2, § 13; cf. de Orat., 15; Exhort. ad Mart., 7; Contra Cels., 5:11; cf. Griesbach, Symb. Crit., ii., pp. 305, 349, 388.

[336:2] Apol., 1:16.

[336:3] Hom., 18:1, 3.

[336:4] Oodeis agathos, ei mê ho patêr mou, k.t.l. (Paedag., 1:8, § 72, cf. § 74); eis agathos ho patêr (Strom., 5:10, § 64).

[336:5] Westcott, On the Canon, p. 260, note 2.

[336:6] The supposed reference to the Ep. to the Romans 1:20; cf. Clem. Al., Strom., 4:13, § 91, 92, is much more distant than either of the preceding. It is not necessary for us to discuss it; but, as Dr. Westcott merely gives references to all of the passages without quoting any of the words, a good strong assertion becomes a powerful argument, since few readers have the means of verifying its correctness.

[336:7] By a misprint, Dr. Westcott ascribes all his references of Valentinus to the N. T., except three, to the extracts from his writings in the Stromata of Clement, although he should have indicated the work of Hippolytus. Cf. On the Canon, 1866, p. 260, note 2.

[337:1] Hippolytus, Adv. Haer., 6:35.

[337:2] Wann wurden, u.s.w., p. 46.

[338:1] Why "early"? since Hippolytus writes about AD 225.

[338:2] Weizsäcker, Unters. üb. d. evang. Gesch., 1864, p. 234; cf. Luthardt, Der johann. Urspr. viert. Ev., 1874, p. 88 f.

[338:3] P. 330, "Therefore all the Prophets," etc.

[338:4] On the Canon, p. 260. (He no longer does so, see backp. 334, n. 1.)

[339:1] Cf. Rom. 8:11.

[339:2] Cf. Gen. 3:19.

[339:3] Hippolytus, Ref. Omn. Haer., 6:35.

[339:4] The quotation from an Epistle to the Romans by the Italian school is appropriate.

[340:1] 6:34.

[340:2] On the Canon, p. 260.

[341:1] On the Canon, p. 259. (Dr. Westcott omits these words from his 4th ed., but he uses others here and elsewhere which imply very nearly the same assertion.)

[342:7] Cum enim ex Scripturis arguuntur, in accusationem convertuntur ipsarum Scripturarum, quasi non recte habeant, neque sint ex auctoritate … Non enim per litteras traditam illam, sed per vivam vocem, etc. (Irenaeus, Adv. Haer., 3:2, § 1).

[342:8] Ib., 3:2, § 2.

[343:1] Hi vero, qui sunt a Valentino, iterum exsistentes extra omnem timorem, suas conscriptiones proferentes, habere gloritantur, quam sint ipsa Evangelia. Siquidem in tantum processerunt audaciae, uti quod ab his non olim conscriptum est, veritatis Evangelium titulent, in nihilo conveniens apostolorum Evangeliis, ut nec Evangelium quidem sit apud eos sine blasphemia. (Irenaeus, Adv. Haer., 3:11, § 9).
