THE CHARACTER AND HISTORY OF

PELAGIUS’ COMMENTARY ON THE

EPISTLES OF ST. PAUL

**

BY PROFESSOR A. SOUTER

Read March 15, 1916

NINE years ago, when last I had the honour to address the Academy, 1 I chose as my subject, ‘ The Commentary of Pelagius on the Epistles of Paul : The Problem of its Restoration ‘. In that lecture I endeavoured to sketch the history of the attempts to recover the lost commentary of Pelagius, the oldest extant book by a British author, and called attention to the anonymous MS., no. CXIX, of the Reichenau collection in the Grand-Ducal Library at Karlsruhe, which I claimed to be the only known example of the work in its original form. I also argued that it was the Vulgate text of the epistles that was employed by the author as the basis of his commentary, and suggested that this Reichenau MS. might thus be the best surviving authority for that text. It was at the same time my good fortune to prove for the first time that the related commentary, printed under the name of Primasius, was none other than the revision of the Pelagius commentary, which Cassiodorus and his pupils prepared. The lecture dealt also with other matters, which need not now be referred to.

It is hard to believe that the author of the treatise On the Trinity was simply an ambitious schemer, who adopted a popular theory to secure his own advancement. We may give him credit for having acted from the same zeal for the good of the Church and the glory of God which had led him previously to use his great abilities as a writer to explain the Catholic faith, his devotion to which was perfectly sincere. Religious speculations, some wild and fanciful, others deeply philosophical, were abroad in abundance, springing mostly from Greek or Eastern thinkers. Without the Church, some of these teachers tried to incorporate Christian elements into their systems ; while within, men who professed the faith had allowed these speculations to draw them from the faith as the Church understood it, into forms of opinion which the Church called heresy. Tertullian, in Africa, had written various treatises to purge the faith from these erroneous ideas, and to explain what it really is ; Novatian decided to do the same at Rome. He is the first great Roman writer; great, not only in his powers of thought, but in the cultured style, based upon his study of the best Latin authors, which he was able to devote to the expression of it.

This work is a companion to The Kingdom of God and St. Paul’s Conception of Christianity, published respectively in 1889 and 1894.
The greater part of the contents appeared in the pages of The Expositor in 1888, 1889, 1890. All has been carefully revised, some portions have been re-written, and a chapter on the theological import of the Epistle, entirely new, has been added at the end of the book. The recent literature of the subject has been duly taken into account in footnotes on important points connected with the exposition.
Among the works referred to in these new notes, the chief are the Commentaries of Westcott (1889), Vaughan (1890), Weiss (in Meyer), and von Soden (in Handcommentar). To these may be added the work of Ménégoz on the theology of the Epistle (La Theologie de L’Épitre aux Hebreux, 1894). It gives me pleasure to name here a book just published on the same subject by the Rev. George Milligan, son of the late Professor Milligan, some sheets of which I had an opportunity of reading while it was passing through the press.
I had expected, and even hoped, that recent publications on this important book of the New Testament would have made a new contribution to its interpretation superfluous. I cannot honestly say that I have found this to be the case. The last word has not yet been spoken. The interpretation of the letter has been carried to a high degree of perfection. But there is room and need for fresh work in the unveiling of the soul of this sacred writing, in the light of its author’s aim, which I take to be to show the excellence of Christianity to a community possessing a very defective insight into its true nature. It is indeed the first apology for Christianity, as indicated in my sub-title. Readers will judge how far I have succeeded in placing this view of the book on a solid foundation.
I can at least claim for this effort that it is not the product of a brief and hasty consideration. It is the mature fruit of study carried on for a period of thirty years—a fact which I deemed it not unfitting to commemorate in the form of a dedication to friends to whom my thoughts were communicated in their earliest shape.
I owe thanks to my esteemed colleague, Professor Denney, D.D., for assisting me in reading the proof sheets, and for offering some valuable suggestions.

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.

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.

MEMBRE DE L’ACADÉMIE

Je ne doute pas, Messieurs, que le jour où vous m’avez appelé à l’honneur de succéder au regretté Jean-Baptiste Chabot, vous n’ayez cédé au désir de remplacer un orientaliste par un orientaliste et plus spécialement un sémitisant par un sémitisant. Nos études n’ont pourtant pas été confinées dans un domaine identique. Jean-Baptiste Chabot s’est attaché plus particulièrement au syriaque, à l’araméen, au phénicien, au libyque. J’ai été voué à l’hébreu, d’une part, à l’assyro-babylonien, d’autre part. Mais il n’existe pas de cloison étanche entre les langues sémitiques et l’on ne peut s’occuper de l’une sans entendre le son des autres. Il faut reconnaitre aussi que, pour mon prédécesseur, comme pour moi-même, c’est la Bible hébraïque, cette mère de l’orientalisme dans les églises occidentales, qui a guidé nos premiers pas sur les chemins de la philologie sémitique et de la linguistique orientale. Il est vrai que Jean-Baptiste Chabot, pour des raisons qu’il est facile de deviner, s’éloigna très vite du terrain dangereux de l’exégèse scientifique. Il préféra s’adonner à des recherches de tout repos du côté doctrinal. Et c’est à peine si nous pouvons connaître son attitude vis-à-vis des questions controversées entre théologiens par cette phrase que je relève dans une notice consacrée à Silvestre de Sacy, pour le centenaire de sa mort, en 1938 : ” Il semble bien que ce soit à l’école de Richard Simon qu’il (Silvestre de Sacy) ait puisé les sages principes de ce qu’on pourrait appeler son libéralisme biblique “1. De toute façon, je ne sortirai pas de mon horizon familier, en m’efforçant de retracer devant vous non point la vie et les vertus, comme on dit en style hagiographique, mais simplement la vie et les travaux de celui que vous appeliez communément l’abbé Chabot, titre sous lequel il passera à l’immortalité académique.
