The great historical work, which has come down to us in two parts, the third gospel and the Acts of the Apostles, is anonymous, but the unanimous report of ecclesiastical tradition, which ascribes it to an author Luke by name, can be traced back to the middle of the second century. In fact, there is no justifiable reason for doubting that Justin already regarded the third gospel as the work of St. Luke (“Dial.” 103). Indeed, a further step backwards is permissible; for those who first formed the collection of four gospels—and this was done before the middle of the second century, perhaps long before—gave this gospel the inscription KATA LOTKAN. It is therefore probable that Marcion, who assailed the other gospels while he accepted and edited the third gospel, was already acquainted with the name Luke as the name of its author. This, however, does not admit of stringent proof, and one must therefore rest satisfied with the knowledge that the Lukan authorship has been universally accepted since the years 140-150 A.D.

PREFACE BY THE EDITOR

The new series of translations by Messrs. Williams and Norgate auspiciously begins with Weizsacker’s great work on the Apostolic Age, of which the first volume now appears. This work is confessedly of exceptional value, exhibiting as it does not merely the learning we expect in a first-class German author, but a moderation and soundness of judgment which are by no means common either in Germany or anywhere else. It has the merit of being not only able and masterly, but extremely interesting, discussing a multitude of questions relating to the origin of the Christian Church in a manner fitted to engage the attention of general readers not less than of professional theologians. The style is luminous and easy, and the pages are not encumbered with learned foot-notes. On some subjects, as, e.g., the Resurrection of Christ and the historical value of the Book of Acts, readers may meet with views from which they earnestly dissent. But even there it will be found that the author’s treatment is scientific in spirit and reverent in tone. In the preface of his work on God and the Bible, the late Mr. Arnold pronounces Ferdinand Christian Baur an unsafe guide because of the ‘vigour and rigour’ characteristic of most German Biblical critics. Weizsacker compares very favourably with Baur in this respect. There is plenty of vigour in his book, but not nearly so much of the rigour of which Mr. Arnold complains.

Much pains have been taken to make the translation at once faithful to the author’s meaning and readable English.

A second volume, to appear in due course, will complete the work.

The Christian Church has three ideals set before it in Scripture to be Universal, to be Holy, and to be One. It is to ‘ make disciples of all the nations.’ It is to be ‘ without spot or wrinkle or any such thing.’ It is to ‘ become one flock ‘ with a union between its members admitting of no lower standard than the Unity of the Divine Persons in the Godhead. The external history of the Church is the history of the attempt to realise the first of these three ideals; its internal history tells of the attempt to realise the second and third. The three taken together sum up what is meant by ecclesiastical history the history of the spread of Christianity and of the development of Christian life and Christian doctrine. Thus a convenient division of the subject is at once suggested. Only the first of these three points is treated in this handbook the progress of the Church in the attempt to become universal, including all that impeded that progress, especially literary attack and civil persecution. The worship and discipline of the Church and the development of its doctrine, though often touched upon, are reserved for treatment in a separate volume.

The present sketch is limited to the Ante-Nicene period, and indeed to only a portion of that. Neither the Apostolic Age nor the history of Arianism falls within its scope. Its limits are, roughly speaking, the second and third centuries, or, more exactly, the period from the death of St. John, about a.d. 100, to the Edict of Toleration published at Milan by Constantine and Licinius a.d. 312 or 318.

It is obvious that in a volume of this size nothing more than a sketch can be attempted ; but help will be offered to the student who desires to have fuller information and to examine original sources for himself. A list is given of some of the best and most easily accessible authorities, especially in the English language, together with the chief ancient witnesses from whom the information given by modern writers is ultimately derived. Perhaps in no branch of history is it more important to study original authorities than in the history of Christianity daring the second and third centuries. Neither in number nor in bulk are these sources so formidable as in the later periods of Church history ; so that the ordinary student may hope to do a good deal in the attempt to make himself acquainted with primary materials. Moreover, nearly all these early writings have been translated ; so that even those who are unable to read Latin or Greek are nevertheless able to obtain fairly accurate knowledge of what these early writers in their own words tell us. This handbook will have failed in one of its objects if it does not lead some of those who use it to check its statements by a comparison with standard works, and above all by an appeal to the original authorities.

As references are almost entirely forbidden by the plan of this series, the compiler of this volume is unable to express in detail his obligations to other writers.
They are very numerous to a large number of the works mentioned below, especially to those of Bishop Lightfoot and Dr. Schaff, and to the ‘ Dictionary of Christian Biography ‘ edited by Smith and Wace. An asterisk is prefixed to the name of modern writers whose writings are of special importance.

COMMENTARY OF THEODORE OF MOPSUESTIA ON THE NICENE CREED

CAMBRIDGE

W. HEFFER & SONS LIMITED
1932

The present volume is the fifth in the series of Woodbrooke Studies, the contents of which are drawn from MSS. in my collection. Owing to the fact that I have relmquished ray duties in the John Rylands Library, Manchester, it was not foimd convenient to continue the publication of the ” Studies ” in serial parts in the ” Bulletin ” of that Library. Slight changes have accordingly been made in the preliminary matter as well as in the headings of the ” Studies,” and it is hoped that these will be found more suitable to works of this kind.

This volume contains the hitherto lost commentary of Theodore of Mopsuestia {c. 350-428) on the Nicene Creed, which is undoubtedly one of the most important theological works of the golden age of Christianity. In places I experienced some difficulty in following the author’s method of reasoning, but it may confidently be stated that the translation which I have adopted in the following pages reveals as accurately as possible the secret of the author’s argumentation, which is nearly always fresh and illuminating.

Short passages were by inadvertence omitted in the first part of the work, which was published in the January issue of the ” Bulletin of the John Rylands Library “. These have been inserted in the present edition together with some corrections.

It is a pleasing duty to offer here my sincerest thanks to Mr. ELdward Cadbury whose generosity has again made possible the publication of the ” Studies ” in their new form.

PREFACE.

This Handbook is intended to give the visitor to Rome full information about the Christian side of its history, about Roman churches, ceremonies, and customs, which does not fall within the scope of such an excellent Handbook as that of Messrs. Murray’s general Guide.

It was to have formed one volume, but the matter gradually exceeded all limits ; and it is now hoped that this little series of books (of which the present is much the largest) may prove as convenient, dealing as each volume will do, with a subject complete in itself.

We cannot hope that among so much detail we have been able to avoid all error ; nor that we have always made the same choice as all our readers would have done, as to what pieces of information to give, and what to reluctantly withhold. When a choice has had to be made, we have elected to tell what is less generally known.

There’ remains only the pleasure of recalling the many kindnesses we have received, and of taking this opportunity of thanking all who have helped us with information, or by suggesting books.

Our gratitude is specially due to Monsignor J, A. Campbell, Rector of the Scotch College in Rome, for unwearied helpfulness, and readiness in answering an infinity of questions, and for the courtesy of placing his library at our disposal : and for the kind help given us by Padre Semeria, Barnabite.

For the archaeological portion of this handbook we are much indebted to conferences held on the spot by the late Commendatore G.-B. De Rossi, and by his pupil Professor Orazio Marucchi. And we desire also to thank Professor Barnabei and the Ministry of Public Instruction in Rome for facilities courteously afforded us.

MEMOIR OF SOZOMEN.

LITTLE more than cursory allusions to SOZOMEN occur in the works of contemporary writers ; and the materials for a memoir of his life are therefore at best but few and scanty. We should, in fact, be destitute of almost all knowledge as to his birth, education, mode of life and private history, had not some information on these points been furnished by himself. In the work before us, the only one which has caused his name to be handed down to posterity, he draws aside the curtain which would otherwise have concealed his origin and parentage, and makes known to us a portion of his family history. He tells us (Book V. chap, xv.) that his grandfather was a native of Palestine, and of Pagan parentage; that he, with all his family, was converted to Christianity on witnessing a miracle wrought by St. Hilarion; and that, being possessed of great mental endowments, he afterwards be came eminently useful to the men of Gaza and Ascalon, by his extraordinary power in expounding the most obscure passages of Holy Writ.
Our author himself seems to have been born about the beginning of the fifth century. He tells us that in his youth some of the founders of monasticism in Palestine were still living, although they had reached a very advanced period of life, and that he had enjoyed opportunities of intercourse with them. To this circumstance may probably be attributed the tone of reverential admiration in which Sozomen invariably speaks of the ascetic denizens of the desert.
The education of Sozomen was conducted with a view to the legal profession; and he studied for some years at Berytus, then noted for its school of law. He afterwards established himself at Constantinople, and, it has been conjectured, held some office at the court of Theodosius the younger. He is reputed to have possessed some skill in the law, but it is certain that he never attained any eminence in his profession. It is only in the character of an historian that he has rendered himself conspicuous. His first work was an abridgment of Ecclesiastical History, from the ascension of our Lord to the death of Licinius, but this is not extant. The work before us seems to have been commenced about the year 443. It is generally admitted to have suffered many alterations and mutilations ; and this may, in some measure, serve to account for the frequent inaccuracies in point both of narrative and of chronology which pervade the nine books of which it is composed. It is evident, from the very abrupt termination of this history, that it is but a fragmentary portion of a larger work. The precise object of Sozomen in undertaking to write this history is not apparent, as exactly the same ground had previously been gone over by Socrates. The learned Photius prefers the style of Sozomen to that of Socrates; yet Sozomen frequently evinces great deficiency in point ofjudgment, and on many occasions enlarges upon details which are altogether omitted by Socrates as unworthy of the dignity of Ecclesiastical History. To us, there is manifest advantage in possessing these separate chronicles of the same events. Facts which might perhaps have been doubted, if not rejected, had they rested upon the sole authority of a single writer, are admitted as unquestionable when authenticated by the combined testimony of Socrates, of Sozomen, and of Theodoret. And, indeed, the very discrepancies which, on several minor points, are discernible in the histories of these writers, are not without their use, inasmuch as they tend to the removal of all suspicion of connivance or collusion.
