[376:1] This work did not come to notice in this country till after the Complete Edition of S. R. was published in 1879, and of course we need not add that the still later works presently to be noticed could not before be discussed.

[381:2] Eusebius, H. E., 4:23; Hieron., De Vir. Ill., 27; Grabe, Spicil. Patr., ii., p. 217 f.; Routh, Reliq. Sacrae, i., p. 180 ff.

[381:3] Eusebius, in his Chronicon, sets it in AD 171.

[381:4] Eusebius, H. E., 4:19.

[381:5] Anger places it between 173-177, Synops. Ev. Proleg., xxxii; cf. Credner, Gesch. N. T. Kan., p. 79. Jerome states that Dionysius flourished under M. Aurel. Verus and L. Aurel. Commodus (De Vir. Ill., 27).

[382:1] Eusebius, H. E., 4:23.

[382:2] Tischendorf, Wann wurden, u.s.w., p. 18 f.; Volkmar, Der Ursprung, p. 38; Donaldson, Hist. Chr. Lit. and Doctr., iii., p. 217. Dr. Westcott's opinion is shown by his not even referring to the expression.

[382:3] Wann wurden, u.s.w., p. 18 f.

[382:4] H. E., 4:23.

[382:5] On the Canon, p. 166. Dr. Westcott, in the first instance, translates the expression, tôn kuriakôn graphôn: "The Scriptures of the New Testament." In a note to his fourth edition, however, he explains: "Of course, it is not affirmed that the collection here called ai kuriakai graphai was identical with our 'New Testament,' but simply that the phrase shows that a collection of writings belonging to the New Testament existed" (p. 188, n. 2). Such a translation, in such a work, assuming, as it does, the whole question, and concealing what is doubtful, is most unwarrantable. The fact is that not only is there no mention of the New Testament at all, but the words as little necessarily imply a "collection" of writings as they do a "collection" of the Epistles of Dionysius.

[383:2] Dial. c. Tryph., 70-75.

[383:3] Dial. 89.

[383:4] This charge is made with insistence throughout the Clementine Homilies.

[384:1] Cf. p. 263 f.

[384:2] Eusebius, H. E. 6:12.

[384:3] Theodoret, Haer. Fab., 1:20; cf. 2:2; cf. Epiph., Haer., 46:1.

[384:9] Justin, Apol., 1:20, 44; Clem. Al., Strom., 6:5, §§ 42, 43; Lactantius, Instil. Div., 1:6, 7; 7:15, 19. Clement of Alexandria quotes with perfect faith and seriousness some apocryphal book, in which, he says, the Apostle Paul recommends the Hellenic books, the Sibyl and the books of Hystaspes, as giving notably clear prophetic descriptions of the Son of God (Strom., 6:5, § 42, 43).

[384:10] Origen, Contra Cels., 5:6; cf. 7:53.

[385:1] The Epistle of Jude quotes as genuine the Assumption of Moses, and also the Book of Enoch; and the defence of the authenticity of the latter by Tertullian (de Cultu fem., 1:3) will not be forgotten.
