1. INTRODUCTION ; p. 5. 





nTHE LATIN VERSION which follows has a special interest for 
Englishmen, as being a product of the remarkable but prema- 
ture literary revival which distinguished the thirteenth century, and as 
giving the Ignatian letters in the only form in which they were known 
in this country till several years after the invention of printing. Its 
connexion with Robert Grossteste has been investigated in an earlier 
part of this work. 

The two Mss of this Latin collection, Caiensis and Montacutianus, 
designated L, and L^ respectively, have been already described. Pre- 
vious editors, even where they have printed the whole collection, have 
disturbed the arrangement of the epistles as found in the mss, so as 
to adapt it to the special purposes which they had in view. In the 
present edition the arrangement is preserved ; and thus the whole body 
of Ignatian literature is nov/ presented, as I believe, for the first time, 
as it was read by the more learned of our fellow-countrymen from 
the middle of the thirteenth to the end of the fifteenth century. 

The collection comprises sixteen epistles in all besides the Acts of 
Martyrdom; the Epistle to the Romans, which is incorporated in 
these Acts, being reckoned as one of the sixteen. In L, however, 
where the epistles are numbered in order \ the Acts themselves are

times incorporated in the title as well. quently left it in the margin in his colla-

reckoned as one of the epistles (the twelfth), and the Epistle to the 
Romans as another (the thirteenth). Thus according to this reckoning 
there are seventeen epistles in all. 

This collection falls into two parts. 

(i) The first, which ends with the Acts of Martyrdom and the 
accompanying Epistle to the Romans, includes twelve epistles. This 
portion is a translation from a Greek original. The circumstances 
under which it was probably made have been already considered. It 
corresponds exactly in arrangement and contents with the Greek collec- 
tion represented by the Medicean and Colbert mss, and must have 
been translated by Bishop Grossteste or his assistants from some similar 
Greek ms. At the close of this part is a summary of the contents. 
This is the main indication in the Latin mss that the first part is 
separate from the second. 

(2) The second part consists of the four short epistles, which make 
up the correspondence of the saint with the Virgin and S. John. 
These epistles, as I have already stated, appear never to have existed 
in the Greek, and therefore cannot have formed part of Grossteste's 
version. How they came to be attached to this version it is impossible 
to say ; but inasmuch as they occur in both the mss L^ L^, in the same 
form and arrangement, though these two mss are independent of each 
other, they must have held this position at a very early date, and it is 
not improbable that they were appended soon after the version was 
made. They were very popular in the middle ages, and appear to have 
been much read about this time ' ; so that no collection of the Ignatian 
Epistles would have appeared complete without them. 

The great importance of this Anglo-Latin version of the Ignatian 
Epistles for textual criticism has been explained in the Introduction. 
But notwithstanding its acknowledged value it has never yet been 
treated with the consideration which it deserves. I hope that I have

put it in a form which will render it at length available for critical pur- 

Of the extant MS L^ I have made an entirely new collation. That 
this was not superfluous the facts will show. The MS was transcribed 
in the first instance for Ussher, and (till I myself collated it) had only 
been collated twice for subsequent editions'. Of the numberless inac- 
curacies of the transcript from which Ussher derived all his knowledge 
of this MS I have already spoken. Moreover he has not (except in a 
very few instances) distinguished the respective readings of the two 
Mss which he employed. And lastly, his printed text contains several 
readings which are not found in either, and which (in some instances at 
least) have slipped in through mere inadvertence. 

Of the subsequent collations the earlier was made by T. Smith for 
the text which accompanied his edition of Pearson's notes (a. D. 1709). 
After describing the MS in his preface, he adds, 'quem ego quoque 
ea qua potui accuratione contuli, correctis illius, cujus opera usus 
est D. Usserius, aberrationibus.' The result is a much better text 
of this Latin version than Ussher's ; but for critical purposes his col- 
lation is quite inadequate. He has not recorded a quarter of the 
various readings of L;. Though he has corrected some of Ussher's 
worst mistakes, he has sometimes given readings for which there is 
no authority either in the ms or in Ussher's printed text; e.g. Smym. 3 
'carne ipsius et spiritu ' for 'carni ipsius et spiritui,' and Smym. 6 
'quahtate' for 'qualiter'; in neither instance giving any various read- 
ing, and in the latter distinctly stating that this is the rendering of the 
Latin translation. 

The second collation to which I referred was made for Dr Jacob- 
son's edition, and is thus described by him {Pair. Apost. i. p. xxxvii) ; 
' Hujus codicis lectiones variantes humanissime ad usus meos exscripsit 
vir reverendus Johannes Jacobus Smith A.M., Coll. Caiensis Socius.' 
This collation is in many respects more correct than Ussher's transcript, 
and more complete than T. Smith's collation. But how far it is from 
being trustworthy, the following list of errors, gathered from the first six 
chapters of the Epistle to the Smyrnseans alone, will show.

As this collation coincides with the Caius transcript, where it goes 
most wrong, as for instance m panem qui (5) and qualesque facti sumus 
dei ( 6), I suppose the collator must have allowed himself from time 
to time to consult the transcript instead of endeavouring to decipher 
the MS itself 

These two collations moreover, inadequate as they are in them- 
selves, were confined to the seven epistles mentioned by Eusebius. 
The text of the other epistles has remained in the same state in 
which it was left by Ussher, without any fresh examination of the 
MS. Thus for instance, in Ign. Mar. 2 Ussher accidentally omitted 
the word ' impellor,' and the omission has been repeated by all sub- 
sequent editors, though the sense of the passage is destroyed thereby, 
and a reference to the ms would at once have supplied the missing 
word. In some respects the text has even deteriorated since Ussher's 
time, for later' editors have introduced errors of their own. Thus in 
Hero 3 a whole sentence, ' Saluta deo decens presbyterium,' is omitted 
in Cureton's text {Corp. Ign. p. 146). 

Of the disappearance of the other ms Lj I have spoken in an 
earlier part of this work, where also I have described Ussher's collation, 
which is preserved among his books and papers in the Library of 
Trinity College, Dublin, but has been strangely overlooked by pre- 


vious editors. By the kindness of the Provost and Fellows I have 
been allowed the use of this collation, which is indispensable for the 
criticism of the Latin text; and thus the readings of L^ are given 
in the present edition for the first time. Hitherto they have been left 
to conjecture, except in the very few passages where Ussher has dis- 
tinctly mentioned it by name. 

This collation however only commences in the middle of the 
Epistle to Polycarp, i '[in] orationibus vaca indesinentibus,' the 
earlier leaves of the transcript having been lost. For the previous 
portion, the whole of the Epistle to the Smyrnseans and the com- 
mencement of the Epistle to Polycarp, I have supplied the defect by 
a collation of Ussher's printed text of this version, which I have 
designated L^. As Ussher had only the readings of these two mss 
before him, it may be presumed that his printed text, wherever it 
differs from Li, gives the reading of L^. This rule however can only 
be accepted as roughly and approximately true. Large allowance 
must be made for inadvertences and inaccuracies. For instance, in 
Smyrn. 9 Ussher omits ' Bene habet et Deum et episcopum cogno- 
scere,' and possibly these words may have been wanting in L^; but, 
when we find him leaving out whole clauses elsewhere, where we are 
able by means of his own collation to convict him of inaccuracy, 
e.g. Polyc. 2 ' ut gubernatores ventos,' and Ephes. i 'ut potiri possim 
discipulus esse' (not to multiply examples), the inference will appear 
highly precarious ^ 

Where a reading of this ms is distinctly given by Ussher in this 
collation, it is marked L, simply; where it is only inferred from his 
silence, i.e. where he has not noted any divergence from the reading 
which he had before him in the transcript of L, , it is given as L,s. 

In the following recension I have endeavoured to restore the text 
of the version to the condition in which it left the translator's hands. 
Thus I have not scrupled to make an alteration here and there, where 
the Latin text itself had obviously been corrupted in the course of 
transmission. Thus, for instance, I have cast out two apparent 
glosses, Ephes. i, Mag7i. 2. Thus again in four passages, Sviyni. 8, 
Ephes. 3, Magn. 13, Philad. 3, I have substituted 'episcopi,' 'epis- 
copo,' for 'ipsi,' 'ipso,' the corruption having arisen from an easy 
confusion of the Latin contractions, ipi, epi, ipo, epo, and the Greek

supplied by Ussher in his table of emen- mentioned at all. 
danda, p. 241, but inaccurately, ' ut 


text in all these cases deciding the true reading. On the same prin- 
ciple in Mart. 4 I have substituted ' ipsi ' (ipi) for ' Christi ' (xpi). So 
too I have not scrupled to alter 'assensores' into 'assessores' Polyc. 6, 
' sollicitudine ' into 'insoUicitudine' Polyc. 7, 'potiri' into 'per potiri' 
Ephes. I, ' salvificemini ' into ' salificemini,' 'exacuens' into 'exace- 
scens,' 'perfari' into 'profari' Magn. 10, 'suadeo' into 'suadeor' Trail. 
3, 'prjecipue' into 'praecipio' Pom. 4, 'fidei' into 'Dei' Philad. g, 
'sciant' into 'sitiant' Ign. Mar. i, and (having regard to the con- 
tractions) ' deo ' into ' dicit ' Tars. 7 ; in all which cases the corruption 
was easy in the Latin text and quite impossible in the Greek. On 
the other hand I have not attempted to correct those errors which 
must be traced to the faulty Greek text which the translator had be- 
fore him. For example, in Mar. Ign. i ' et Sobelum ' is left ; for 
though there can be little doubt that the correct reading is KaaaofSr]- 
\ov or Kao-cro/3>/Aa)i/, it is equally clear that the Latin translator had koi 
'ZofiiqXov in his text. 

In recording the variations of the mss I have not (except in special 
cases and for particular reasons) included readings which are corrected 
prima manu. Nor again is any account generally taken of the punc- 
tuation of the MSS, which is arbitrary and valueless. The marginal 
glosses and notes moreover, of which a very few occur in L;, and 
which are frequent in L^, are not recorded, unless they have a bearing 
on the reading. Some of these, which have an interest of a different 
kind, are given in an earlier part of this work. 

On the orthography of the mss one or two points require explana- 
tion. In Lj the diphthongs, cz, oe, are systematically disregarded and 
written e (e.g. eterne., penitet); and in this same ms ci is universally, or all 
but universally, written for // (e. g. Ignacius, propiciacio). In both these 
cases the normal spelling is silently adopted. In other instances, 
where L, persistently departs from the normal orthography (e.g. miste- 
rium, carisma, ammonere), I have contented myself with noticing the 
fact at the first occurrence of the word. 

Much error has arisen in previous collations from inattention to 
the contractions. Thus for instance, quatido, quoniam, qimm, qui., quce, 
quern, quia, etc. have been confused ; and again, ergo, igitur ; and again, 
tafnen, tantum. In this way various readings have been erroneously 
multiplied. In most cases there can be no doubt as to the force of 
the contraction. In some few instances, where a contraction in L, is 
ambiguous, I have given it the interpretation which accords with the 
Greek text or with the reading of L^. 

It did not seem necessary to encumber the notes by pointing out 


every instance where previous collators have misread Lj. In one or 
two cases I have done so, because the error was sufficiently im- 
portant to call for notice, e.g. Trail. 5 'scire celestia' for 'super- 
celestia,' Polyc. 7 'in oratione' for 'in resurrectione '; but these are 
exceptional. As I have had the collation which was made for Jacob- 
son's edition constantly before me, the variations recorded in it and 
not noted by me have been deliberately rejected. Thus for instance 
the various readings, ' panem qui ' for ' passionem quae ' Smyrn. 5 (see 
above, p. 8), 'optimum' for 'opportunum' Trail. 2, with many others, 
have disappeared. 

On the other hand, some readings will appear in my text (on the 
authority of one or both of the mss) for the first time; and in most 
instances these bring the Latin into stricter accordance with the Greek 
than it is in the text of the printed copies. Thus for instance, 'vene- 
remini' (ivrpewea-Oe) for 'veneremur' Magn. 6, 'ipsos' {avrovi) for 
'ipsas' Philad. 3, 'apponi' (Trpoo-^eivai) for 'opponi' Ign. Mar. 4, 
*portus' (At/Aevas) for ' Portum ' Mart. 5, 'immunda inani gloria' (r^s 
aKaOdpTov <^tXoTt/i,ias) for ' mundi inani gloria' 3., are read by both 
Li and L^. And again, in J?om. 7 'adjuvet; ipsi autem magis mei 
fiatis', and Marl. 5 'da ea qu^e a nobis futura separatione ; justo autem 
fieri ipsi secundum votum accidit,' the readings of L,, involving in both 
cases a transposition, produce exact conformity to the Greek. The 
text, thus restored, is ' adjuvet ipsi ; magis autem mei fiatis ' (fiorjOeLTOi 
avT^- fjidXXov Ijxol yLvea-Oe) in the One passage, and 'de ea quae a nobis 
futura separatione justi fieri; ipsi autem secundum votum accidit' (rw

The correspondence with the Virgin and S. John, forming the 
second part of this collection, is comparatively unimportant. It is found 
in a considerable number of mss besides L^ L^ ; sometimes by itself, 
sometimes in connexion with the epistles of the Long Recension. 
In this latter case it sometimes precedes the twelve epistles of this 
Recension (e.g. Flor. Latir. xxiii. 20, Palat. 150, Oxon. Magd. Ixxvi), 
and sometimes follows them (e.g. Bruxell. 20132). The various read- 
ings are very numerous, and the order of the four epistles is different 
in different copies. 

For the sake of exhibiting the character of the variations, I have 
given a collation of three Oxford mss besides the readings of L^ L^, 
taking the editio priticeps (Paris, 1495) as the basis of my text. 


These three mss are : 

(i) Coll. Magdal. Ixxvi. fol. 213 a (isth century); see Coxe's 
Catalogue p. 43. This correspondence precedes the twelve epistles 
of the Long Recension, and the four letters composing it occur in the 
same order as in L, L^. 

(2) Coll. Lincobi. ci. fol. 48 b {15th century); see Coxe's Catalogue 
p. 48. The four epistles are found by themselves, and in the following 
order; (i) Ignatius to Mary; (ii) Mary to Ignatius; (iii) Ignatius to 
John (' De tua ') ; (iv) Ignatius to John (' Si licitum '). 

(3) Bodl. Laud. Misc. 171, fol. 140 a (end of 13th century); see 
Coxe's Catal. MSS Laud. p. 156. The epistles stand by themselves, 
and the order is the same as in the last-mentioned ms. 

These epistles are sometimes accompanied in the mss by the 
testimony of S. Bernard and of Marcus Michael of Cortona (see Ussher 
p. cxliiii). This is the case in Flor. Laur. xxiii. 20, and in Oxoti. 
Magdal. Ixxvi. 

The three mss are thus designated, [m] [1] [b]. Where the cditio 
princeps obviously needed correction, this is done, and its reading [p] is 
given at the foot. 

\_N'ote. These sheets were printed off for my first edition some time before the 
appearance of Funk's work Die Echtheit der Ignatianischen Brief e (1883). In an 
Appendix he gives a full collation of the Caius MS, and I have compared it care- 
fully with my own for this second edition. Considering the character of the ms, the 
differences are fewer than might have been anticipated. On all points of difference I 
have consulted the ms afresh, and in most cases, though not in all, have adhered to 
my previous deciphering of it. I do not doubt for instance, that the MS reads restir- 
rectio7te, not oratione, in Polyc. 7 ; and again Funk's reading aeterna (for ve7-d) in 
Ephes. 7 must be an accidental error. In Antioch. 3 (see below, p. 52, 1. 21), where 
he gives te ego for ego, the te is the last syllable oi evangeliste in the following line.]

Ab eucharistia et oratione recedunt, propter non confiteri eucha- 
ristiam carnem esse salvatoris nostri Jesu Christi pro peccatis 

20 nostris passam, quam benignitate Pater resuscitavit. 

VII. Contradicentes ergo huic dono Dei perscrutantes mori- 
untur. Conferens autem esset ipsis diligere, ut resurgant. Decens 
est recedere a talibus, et neque seorsum de ipsis loqui neque 
communiter ; attendere autem prophetis, praecipue vero evan- 

25 gelio, in quo passio nobis ostensa est et resurrectio perfecta est. 

I Moysi] vioisi Lj. This name is coiaimonly written Aloises in Lj, and Moyses 
in Lg. 4 Dominum] Lu ; deum Lj. blasphemat] blasfemat L^. 7 visum 

est] Lu; est visum L^. mihi] viichi Lj; and so the word is always written 

in this MS, when not contracted. 1 1 visibiles et invisibiles] Lu ; invisibiles et 

visibiles Lj. 12 Qualiter nullus iniletur] LiLu. The Greek is tottos (x-qS^va. (pvaio^TCj. 
The translator therefore must have read ottws or to ttws for tottos, as these words are 
commonly rendered qualiter. The inflexions, nulhis infletur for nullum inflet, have 
probably been changed in the transmission of the Latin text, the contractions facilitat- 
ing such changes. 13 nihil] nichil Lj. So the word is commonly written in 
this MS. 15 contrarii] contraria: 'L,^; coiitrariel^-^. 18 eucharistia] t'z/fariV/za 
Lj. This is the common form of the word in L^. recedunt] Lu; om. Lj. 
propter] Lu; propterea Lj. 22 Decens est] Some short word has been erased 
after 'est' in Lj, perhaps ^"^tjr^t', corresponding to the o^v of the Greek text. 
24 vero] Lu; om. L^. 


VIII. Partitiones autem fugite, ut principium malorum. 
Omnes episcopum sequimini, ut Jesus Christus Patrem, et pres- 
byterium ut apostolos ; diaconos autem revereamini, ut Dei 
mandatum. Nullus sine episcopo aliquid operetur eorum quae 
conveniunt in ecclesiam. Ilia firma gratiarum actio reputetur, 5 
quae sub episcopo est, vel quod utique ipse concesserit. Ubi 
utique apparet episcopus, illic multitude sit; quemadmodum 
utique ubi est Christus Jesus, illic catholica ecclesia. Non 
licitum est sine episcopo neque baptizare neque agapen facere ; 
sed quod utique ille probaverit, hoc et Deo beneplacitum ; ut 10 
stabile sit et firmum omne quod agitur. 

IX. Rationabile est de cetero evigilare et, cum adhuc 
tempus habemus, in Deum poenitere. Bene habet et Deum et 
episcopum cognoscere. Honorans episcopum a Deo honoratus 
est: qui occultans ab episcopo aliquid operatur, diabolo praestat 15 
obsequium. ' Omnia igitur vobis in gratia superabundent ; digni 
enim estis. Secundum enim omnia me quiescere fecistis ; et vos 
Jesus Christus. Absentem me et praesentem dilexistis : retri- 
buat vobis Deus, propter quem omnia sustinentes ipsum adipis- 
cemini. 20 

X. Philonem et Reum et Agathopum, qui secuti sunt me in 
verbum Dei, bene fecistis suscipientes ut ministros Dei Christi : 
qui et gratias agunt Domino pro vobis, quoniam ipsos quiescere 
fecistis secundum omnem modum. Nihil vobis utique deperibit. 
Conformis animae vestrae spiritus meus, et vincula mea quae non 25 
despexistis neque erubuistis ; neque vos erubescet perfecta fides, 
Jesus Christus, 

XI. Oratio vestra pervenit ad ecclesiam quae est in Antio- 
chia Syriae ; unde ligatus Deo decentissimis vinculis omnes 

I autem] Lu', om. Lj. 2 presbyterium] Lu ; presbiterum Lj. 4 ali- 

quid] Lu; om. Lj. 6 episcopo] ipso LuLj : see above, p. 9. quod] So the 

contraction in L, should be read; quant Lu. The Greek text has y cui. 10 

hoc et] Lj; hoc est Lu. 11 stabile sit et firmum] Lu ; stabile firmum sit Lj. 

13 Bene habet et Deum et episcopum cognoscere] Lj; om. Lu. As there is nothing 
in the Greek corresponding to the first et, it is probably a scribe's error, repeating 
the last syllable of habet. 21 Agathopum] agathaputit L,. 25 Conformis] 

confirmis Lj. 29 Syriae] sirie Lj. This name is generally written Siria in Lj. 

The usual form in Lj is Syria. 


saluto, non existens dignus inde esse, extremus ipsorum exis- 
tens; secundum voluntatem [autem] Dei dignus factus sum, non 
ex conscientia, sed ex gratia Dei, quam oro perfectam mihi dari, 
ut in oratione vestra Deo potiar. Ut igitur perfectum vestri fiat 
5 opus et in terra et in cselo, decet ad honorem Dei ordinare eccle- 
siam vestram Deo venerabilem, in factum usque Syriam con- 
gaudere ipsis, quoniam pacem habent et acceperunt propriam 
magnitudinem, et restitutum est ipsis proprium corpusculum. 
Visum est mihi igitur Deo digna res mittere aliquem vestrorum 
10 cum epistola ; ut conglorificet eam qu^e secundum Deum ipsis 
factam tranquillitatem, et quoniam portu jam potita est oratione 
vestra. Perfecti existentes perfecta et sapite. Volentibus enim 
vobis bene facere Deus paratus est ad tribuere. 

XII. Salutat vos caritas fratrum qui in Troade ; unde et 
15 scribo vobis per Burrum, quem misistis mecum simul Ephesiis 

fratribus vestris, qui secundum omnia me quiescere fecit. Et 
utinam omnes ipsum imitentur, existentem exemplarium Dei 
ministerii. Remuneret ipsum gratia secundum omnia. Saluto 
Deo dignum episcopum et Deo decens presbyterium et conservos 
20 meos diaconos, et singillatim et communiter omnes, in nomine 
Jesu Christi, et carne ipsius et sanguine, passioneque et resur- 
rectione, carnali et spirituali, in unitate Dei et vestri. Gratia 
vobis et misericordia et pax et sustinentia semper. 

XIII. Saluto domos fratrum meorum cum uxoribus et filiis, 
25 et virgines vocatas viduas. Valete mihi in virtute Patris. Salu- 
tat vos Philon mecum existens. Saluto domum Thavise; quam 
oro firmari fide et caritate carnali et spirituali. Saluto Aiken, 
desideratum mihi nomen, et Daphnum incomparabilem, et 
Eutecnum, et omnes secundum nomen. Valete in gratia Dei. 

I dignus inde] L^; inde dignus L^. c antent] L^; om. L^. S ordinare 

ecclesiam vestram] L^; vestram ordifiare ecclesiavi Lj. 6 usque] L^; usque 

in Li. 7 ipsis] L^; eis Lj. 10 conglorificet] crwoo|a(r7;; conglorificent 

L L . 12 sapite] L^; sapere Lj, but the letters ite are written above. 13 

bene] L ; et bene Lj. Deus\ L; deo Lj. 15 Ephesiis] effesiis L^. 17 ex- 

emplarium] exceinplariuju'L^. 19 presbyterium] L^; ^i5/vw L^. This contrac- 

tion is common in Lj, where the Greek has irpta^vTipLov. 21 passioneque] et 

passione L; et passione qtce Lj. 23 et. misericordia et pax] L^; pax et miseri- 

cordia Lj. 

IGN. III. ^ 



IGNATIUS, qui et Theophorus, Polycarpo episcopo ecclesise 
Smyrnasorum, magis auteni visitato a Deo Patre et Jesu 
Christo, plurimum gaudere. 

T. ACCEPTANS tuam ill Deo sententiam, firmatam ut 
supra petram immobilem, supcrglorifico, dignificatus tua facie 5 
immaculata, qua fruar in Deo. Deprecor te in gratia, qua indu- 
tus es, apponere cursui tuo, et omnes deprecari ut salventur. 
Justifica locum tuum in omni cura carnali et spiritual!. Unionem 
cura, qua nihil melius. Omnes supporta ; ut et te Dominus. 
Omnes sustine in charitate; quemadmodum et facis. Orationi- 10 
bus vaca indesinentibus. Pete intellectum ampliorem eo quern 
habes. Vigila, non dormientem spiritum possidens. Singulis 
secundum consuetudinem Dei loquere. Omnium eegritudines 
porta, ut perfectus athleta: ubi major labor, multum lucrum. 

II. Bonos discipulos si diligas, gratia tibi non est: magis 15 
deteriores in mansuetudine subiice. Non omne vulnus eodem 
emplastro curatur. Exacerbationes in pluviis quieta. Priidens 

Ignatius Polycarpo] Lj has epistola ia ignacii smirncls . a poUcarpo . iroade 
folkarpo, but the first poUcarpo is erased. This is obviously a confusion of Sinyrneis 
a Troade, the subscription to the previous epistle (corresponding to CMypNAlOIC 
AHO rpoOAAOC of G), and Epistola Ignatii Polycarpo, the title of the present 
epistle. The title in L^ is not recorded, but it would probably take the simple 
form which I have adopted. 

I Theophorus] L; theoforiis L^. Polycarpo] L ; poUcarpo L^. The 

name is always so spelt in Lj, but Polycarpus apparently in L^. 6 in gratia] in 

dei gratia L^ ; in deo gratia L,. Here dco seems to be a transcriber's error, whose 
eye was caught by the neighbouring in deo, and in this case dei is a subsequent cor- 
rection of deo. G has simply tV x^P'-'^i- 1 ^^] '^u; oi"- ^v Oratio- 
nibus] L^; in orationibiis Lj. Ussher's collation of L2 begins at this point. 

16 subiice] subice L^. The form of this verb is commonly sitbicio in this MS. 

17 emplastro] L^; emplattstro Lj. in pluviis] LjL^s. The translator read 
kv ^poxah ; the marginal gloss in L^ is ' in dulcibus et desuper venientibus elo- 
quiis.' Ussher prints inpluviis. 


fias, nt serpens^ in omnibus ; et simplex, nt coluuiba. Propter hoc 
carnalis es et spiritualis, ut manifesta in tuam faciem blandiaris* 
invisibilia autem petas ut tibi manifestentur; ut nuUo deficias, et 
omni charismate abundes. Tempus expetit te, ut gubernatores 
5 ventos, et ut qui in procella est portum ad Deo potiendum. 
Vigila, ut Dei athleta : thema incorruptio, vita asterna; dequaet 
tu confisus es. Secundum omnia tui refrigerium ego, et vincula 
mea quae dilexisti. 

III. Qui videntur digni fide esse et altera docent, non te 
10 stupefaciant: sta firmus, ut incus percussa. Magni est athletae 

discerpi et vincere, Maxime autem propter Deum omnia susti- 
nere nos oportet; ut et ipse nos sustineat. Plus studiosus fias 
quam es. Tempora considera; eum qui supra tempus expecta, 
intemporalem, invisibilem, propter nos visibilem, impalpabilem, 
15 impassibilem, propter nos passibilem, secundum omnem modum 
propter nos sustinentem. 

IV. Viduse non negligantur: post Dominum tu ipsarum 
curator esto. Nihil sine sententia tua fiat; neque tu sine Deo 
quid operare: quod autem operaris, sit bene stabile. Saepius 

20 congregationes fiant: ex nomine omnes quaere. Servos et ancil- 
las ne despicias; sed neque ipsi inflentur, sed in gloriam Dei 
plus serviant, ut meliori libertate a Deo potiantur. Non deside- 
rent a communi liberi fieri, ut non servi inveniantur concupi- 

25 V. Malas artes fuge: magis autem de his homiliam fac. 
Sorores meas alloquere, diligere Dominum et viris sufficere carne 

4 abundes] habundes LjL^s. 5 ad Deo potiendum] dsrh QeoC eirirvxeiv ; a deo 
potiendum {pociendin)!) L^L^. The slight correction which I have made brings the Latin 
into exact accordance with the Greek, from which the existing reading diverges 
considerably in meaning. For Deo potiri as a rendering of Geou eirirvxe'Lf , comp. 7, 
I^om. 2, 4, etc. 7 tui] L^; ei tui Lj. tui refrigerium] The Greek is 

cov dvriipvxov, which the translator possibly read <re dvafvxt^v (or perhaps avri.- 
^vxuiv, for the verb 6.vTLip\jxei.v occurs). Elsewhere he translates dvTLxpvxov cor- 
rectly. 9 fide] Lj; cm. Lj. 11 sustinere nos] L,^', nos sustinere'L^. 
14 propter nos] L^; om. Lj. 17 negligantur] tiedigantiir'L^. The word is 
commonly written ^^/z]-(? in this MS. 18 sententia tua] Lg ; tua sententia Lj. 
19 quod autem ... stabile] LjLj. The Greek is oVe/) ovhl irpdaaeis- evarddei (or 
evjTadris). The translator appears to have read 5^ for ot55^, and evaraOis for eiKTrdOei. 
25 homiliam] omeliant LjL^s. 26 Dominum] L^s ; deum L,. 


et spiritu. Similiter et fratribus meis annuncia in nomine Jesu 
Christi, diligere uxores lit Dominus ecclesiam. Si quis potest in 
castitate manere in honorem carnis Domini, in ingloriatione 
Domini maneat. Si glorietur, perditur; et si videri velit plus 
episcopo, corruptus est. Decet autem ducentes et ductas cum 5 
sententia episcopi unionem facere, ut sit secundum Deum et non 
secundum concupiscentiam. Omnia in honorem Dei fiant. 

VI. Episcopo attendite, ut et Deus vobis. Unanimis ego 
cum subjectis episcopo, presbyteris, diaconis; et cum ipsis mihi 
pars fiat capere in Deo. Collaborate adinvicem, concertate, 10 
concurrite, compatimini, condormite, consurgite, ut Dei dispen- 
satores et assessores et ministri. Placete cui militatis; a quo et 
stipendia fertis. NuUus vestrum otiosus inveniatur. Baptisma 
vestrum maneat ut scutum, fides ut galea, caritas ut lancea, 
sustinentia ut omnis armatura. Deposita vestra opera; ut ac- 15 
cepta vestra digna feratis. Longanimiter ferte igitur vos ad- 
invicem in mansuetudine, ut Deus vos. Fruar vobis semper. 

VII. Quia ecclesia quae in Antiochia Syrise pacem habet, ut 
ostensum est mihi, per orationem vestram, et ego Isetior factus 
sum in insoUicitudine Dei ; siquidem per pati Deo potiar, in 20 
inveniri me in resurrectione vestri discipulum. Decet, Polycarpe 
Deo beatissime, concilium congregare Deo decentissimum, et 
ordinare aliquem quem dilectum valde habetis et impigrum, qui 

I et fratribus] L^; fratribus (om. et) Lj. in nomine Jesu Christi diligere uxores] 
Lj ; diligere uxores in noinine domini Jesu christi Lj. 6 Deum] Lj ; domiitum L^s. 
9 presbyteris] preshiteris Lj ; and so the word is generally spelt in this MS, 
where the vowel does not disappear in a contraction. mihi pars] L^ ; pars 

mihi Lj. 12 assessores] irdpeSpoi; assensores L.^, and so apparently L^. Usshei 

indeed writes assessores in the margin of his collation, but this seems to be his own 
conjecture. 13 otiosus] The Greek text has deaeprwp. The Latin rendering 

is taken from the marginal gloss dpySs, which is found in G. 15 Deposita 

vestra] L^ ; vestra deposita Lj. 18 Antiochia] citthiochia Lj. 20 in 

insoUicitudine] iv 6.jx(.pip.v[q. ; in soUicitiidine {solicitudine) LjL^. So 5 'in- 
gloriatione' iov aKavx^ia, Ign. Mar. 1 ' injustificationibus' for dbiK-fipLaciv. in 
inveniri me in resurrectione] in invenire me in resurrectione L^ ; invenire in me in 
resurrectione Y,^. Lj, as well as L^, has resurrectione (contracted rrne with super- 
scribed), which however has been misread oratione (sometimes contracted orne with 
o superscribed). By a strange coincidence the Greek texts here present a corre- 
sponding variation, and cWyidei. 22 concilium] I^, ; consilium L^. 
23 valde habetis] L^; habetis valde Lj. 


poterit Dei cursor vocari; et hunc dignificare, ut vadens in 
Syriam glorificet vestram impigram caritatem in gloriam Dei. 
Christianas sui ipsius potestatem non habet, sed Deo vacat 
Hoc opus Dei est et vestri, quando ipsi perfecti estis. Credo 
5 enim gratia^, quoniam parati estis ad beneficentiam Deo decen- 
tem. Sciens vestrum compendium veritatis, per paucas vos 
literas consolatus sum. 

VIII. Quia igitur omnibus ecclesiis non potui scribere prop- 
ter repente navigare me a Troade in Neapolim, ut voluntas 

10 praecipit, scribes aliis ecclesiis, ut Dei sententiam possidens, in 
et ipsos facere; hi quidem potentes pedites mittere, hi autem 
epistolas per a te missos, ut glorificeris aeterno opere ; ut dignus 
existens. Saluto omnes ex nomine; et earn quas Epitropi, cum* 
domo tota ipsius et filiorum. Saluto Attalum dilectum meum. 

15 Saluto futurum dignificari ad eundum in Syriam: erit gratia 
cum ipso semper et mittente ipsum Polycarpo. Valere vos 
semper in Deo nostro Jesu Christo oro; in quo permaneatis in 
unitate Dei et visitatione. Saluto Aiken, desideratum mihi 
nomen. Valete in Domino. 

I dignificare] Kara^iuxraL ; dignificari LjL^s. vadens in Syriam glorificet] 

L^; vadat itt siriam et glorificet L^. 4 quando] '6ra.v; quoniam LjL^. 

The difference between qm quo)iiam, and qn=qua7ido, is slight. ipsi 

perfecti estis] The translator probably read ai/Tol dTrapTiadTjTe for aiJry (or avro) 
(xTrapTia-qTe. 5 quoniam parati] Lj ; qiiod parati Lj. 8 omnibus ecclesiis 

non] L2; non omnibus ecclesiis Lj. A second non was written after ecclesiis in L^ 
and then erased. 10 in et ipsos facere] L^; a gloss in L^ fixes this as the 

reading. The word which stands in the place of in in L^ is illegible ; but it was read 
idem in the transcript which Ussher used. The exact equivalent to the Greek would 
be in et ipsos idem facere. 11 hi. ..hi] hii...hii LjLaS. 12 per] L^ ; om, Lj.. 

missos] 7mssas LjL^s ; but it may be suspected that L^, which inserted per, also read 
missos, and that Ussher overlooked this in his collation. 14 Attalum'] L^ ; 

athalum Lj. 15 eundum] L,s ; enndem Lj. 16 ipsum] Lj ; ipso Lj. 

Valere] Lj ; ualcte, altered into uaicre, L,. vos semper] L^ ; semper vos L,. 



IGNATIUS, qui et Theophorus, benedictas in magnitudine 
Dei Patris et plenitudine, praedestinatae ante ssecula esse 
semper in gloriam permanentem, invertibilem, unitam et elec- 
tam in passione vera, in voluntate Patris et Jesu Christi Dei 
nostri, ecclesiae digne beatse existenti in Epheso Asiae ; pluri- 5 
mum in Jesu Christo et in immaculata gratia gaudere. 

I. ACCEPTANS in Deo multum dilectum tuum nomen, 
quod possedistis natura justa, secundum fidem et caritatem in 
Christo Jesu salvatore nostro : quia imitatores existentes Dei, 
et reaccendentes in sanguine Dei, cognatum opus integre per- 10 
fecistis. Audientes enini ligatum a Syria pro communi nomine 
et spe, sperantem oratione vestra potiri in Roma cum bestiis 
pugnare, ut per potiri possim discipulus esse, videre festinastis. 
Plurimam enim multitudinem vestram in nomine Dei suscepi in 
Onesimo, qui in caritate inenarrabilis, vester autem in carne 15 
episcopus; quern oro secundum Jesum Christum vos dih"gere, 
et omnes vos ipsi in simihtudine esse. Benedictus enim qui 
tribuit vobis dignis existentibus talem episcopum possidere. 

Ignatius Ephesiis] So Lj (writing however ignacius), L^s. 

I Theophorus] theoferus Lj. 9 nostro] add. glorificato jesum christum 

deiim Lj LjS. This is perhaps a pious gloss, which has been transferred from the 
margin to the text. See Alagn. 2, for a similar instance. 10 Dei] L^ ; christi 

dd'Lj. 12 oratione vestra.] Tu^; vestra oradoneL,^. 13 per potiri] potiri {om. 

per) Lj Lj. It is clear however that the original Latin text had per potiri (cor- 
responding to the Greek 5ta tov e7rtryx''') ^^ ^2 has a marginal note 'ttt per 
potiri sc. eo quod est pugnare cum bestiis, possim esse discipidus sc. christi.^ The 
per, contracted to a single letter, would easily disappear before the / in potiri. 
See an instance of the converse error in Antioch. 2. 15 in caritate] L^; 

earitate (om. i?t) L^. inenarrabilis] L^; add. est L^. 


II. De conserve autem meo Burro, secundum Deum diacono 
nostro in omnibus benedicto, oro permanere ipsum in honorem 
vestri et episcopi. Sed et Crocus Deo dignus et vobis, quern 
exemplarium ejus quae a vobis caritatis suscepi, secundum 

5 omnia me quiescere fecit ; ut et ipsum Pater Jesu Christi refri- 
geret ; cum Onesimo et Burro et Euplo et Frontone per quos 
vos omnes secundum caritatem vidi. Fruar vobis semper, siqui- 
dem dignus existam. Decens igitur est secundum omnem 
modum glorificare Jesum Christum, qui glorificavit vos ; ut in 
10 una subjectione perfecti, subjecti episcopo et presbyterio, secun- 
dum omnia sitis sanctificati. 

III. Non dispono vobis, ut existens aliquis. Si enim et 
ligor in nomine Cliristi, nequaquam perfectus sum in Jesu 
Christo. Nunc autem principium habeo addiscendi, et alloquor 

15 vos, ut doctores mei : me enim oportuit a vobis suscipi fide, 
admonitione, sustinentia, longanimitate. Sed quia caritas non 
sinit me silere pro vobis, propter hoc praeoccupavi rogare vos, 
ut concurratis sententise Dei, Etenim Jesus Christus, incom- 
parabile nostrum vivere, Patris sententia, ut et episcopi secun- 

20 dum terrae fines determinati Jesu Christi sententia sunt. 

IV. Unde decet vos concurrere episcopi sententise : quod et 
facitis. Digne nominabile enim vestrum presbyterium Deo dig- 
num sic concordatum est episcopo, ut chordae citharse. Propter 
hoc in consensu vestro et consona caritate Jesus Christus canitur. 

25 Sed et singuli chorus facti estis; ut consoni existentes in con- 
sensu, melos Dei accipientes in unitate, cantetis in voce una 
per Jesum Christum Patri ; ut et vos audiat, et cognoscat, 
per quae bene operamini, membra existentes fihi ipsius. Utile 

I Bnvro] l>erroL,j^; ionv l^^s. 2 permanere ipsum] L^ ; ipsum permanere Ij^. 

6 Burro] dorro Lj L^s. 8 dignus] L^s; d/gnos Lj. 10 presbyterio] 

presbitero L,^; presbylero 1^^. 13 Christi] 1^^; Jesu christi L,^. 15 suscipi] 

The translator must have read vtroKri^drjvai for viraXeKpdrjvai. 16 admonitione] 

ammonieione L^. The word is always written amm- in Lj, and this is its common 
orthography in L^. 19 episcopi] ipsi L^L^s. See p. 593 sq. 21 episcopi 

sententice] L^; sententie episcopi 1^^. 23 digne] Lj; si que 'L^. nominabile enim] 
Lj ; enim no?jiinabile Lj. vestrum presbyterium] Lj ; prcsbiterium vestrum !>,. 

23 chordae] corde'L^. 28 filii] ////j Lj L^. ipsius] L^; ejus'L^. 


igitur est vos in immaculata unitate esse, ut et Deo semper 

V. Si enim ego in parvo tempore talem consuetudinem 
tenui ad episcopum vestrum, non humanam existentem sed 
spiritualem ; quanto magis vos beatifico, conjunctos sic, ut 5 
ecclesia Jesu Christo et ut Jesus Christus Patri ; ut omnia in 
unitate consona sint Nullus erret ; si quis non sit intra altare, 
privatur pane Dei. Si enim unius et alterius oratio tantam vim 
habet, quanto magis ilia quas episcopi et omnis ecclesice. Qui 
igitur non venit in idem, sic jam superbit et seipsum condem- 10 
navit. Scriptum est enim, Siipcrbis Dens resistit. Festinemus 
igitur non resistere episcopo, ut simus Deo subjecti. 

VI. Et quantum videt quis tacentem episcopum, plus 
ipsum timeat. Omnem enim quem mittit dominus domus in 
propriam dispensationem, sic oportet nos ipsum recipere, ut 15 
ipsum mittentem. Episcopum igitur manifestum quoniam ut 
ipsum Dominum oportet respicere. Ipse igitur quidem Onesi- 
mus superlauddt vestram divinam ordinationem : quoniam 
omnes secundum veritatem vivitis, et quoniam in vobis neque 
una hseresis habitat, sed neque auditis aliquem amplius quam 20 
Jesum Christum loquentem in veritate. 

VII. Consueverunt enim quidam dolo malo nomen circum- 
ferre, sed qusedam operantes indigna Deo. Ouos oportet vos 
ut bestias declinare : sunt enim canes rabidi latenter morden- 
tes ; quos oportet vos observare, existentes difficile curabiles. 25 
Unus medicus est, carnalis et spiritualis, genitus et ingenitus, 

in carne factus Deus, in immortali vita vera, et ex Maria 

I in immaculata unitate esse] mimaculata unitate esse (om. in) L^; esse in 
immaculata imitate Lj. 4 tenui] L^; om. Lj. 8 privatur pane Dei] L^; 

pane da privatur Lj. 9 quanto] 'L^'y 'Juanta'L^. jo igitur] Lj; ergoT,^. 

sic] Lj LjS. The text used by the translator seems to have had ovtws (sic) for 
oSros (kic) : comp. Tars. 4. condemnavit] conde7npnavit LjLj. So the 

word is commonly, but not always, written in both Mss. It is usual with them to in- 
sert a / between m and n; e. g. dampnu77i, contempno. 1 2 igitur] L^ ; ergo Lj. 
17 quidem] Lj; om. Lj. 18 ordinationem] L^; superorditiationem Lj but the 
super is marked for erasure. 20 una] L^ ; om. Lj. auditis] L, ; audistis Lg. 

25 curabiles] L^. The word in Lj has been read sanaliles, but seems certainly to 
be curabiles. 


et ex Deo, primo passibilis et tunc impassibilis, Dominus 
Christus noster. 

VIII. Non igitur quis vos seducat : quemadmodum neqne 
seducimini, toti existentes Dei. Ouum enim neque una lis 

5 complexa est in vobis, potens vos torquere, tunc secundum 
Deum vivitis. Peripsima vestri et castificer a vestra Ephesi- 
orum ecclesia famosa in saeculis, Carnales spiritualia operari 
non possunt, neque spirituales carnalia ; quemadmodum neque 
fides quse infidelitatis, neque infidelitas quae fidelitatis et fidei. 
10 Quae autem et secundum carnem operata sunt, liaec spiritualia 
sunt : in Jesu enim Christo omnia operata sunt. 

IX. Cognovi autem transeuntes quosdam inde, habentes 
malam doctrinam. Ouos non dimisistis seminare in vos, ob- 
struentes aures ad non recipere seminata ab ipsis ; ut existentes 

15 lapides templi Patris, parati in aedificationem Dei Patris, relati 
in excelsa per machinam Jesu Christi, quae est crux, fune uten- 
tes Spiritu Sancto. Fides autem Vestra dux vester, caritas vero 
via referens in Deum. Estis igitur et conviatores, Deiferi et 
templiferi et Christiferi, sanctiferi, secundum omnia ornati in 

20 mandatis Jesu Christi : quibus et exultans dignificatus sum per 
quae scribo alloqui vobis et congaudere, quoniam secundum 
aliam vitam nihil diligitis nisi solum Deum. 

X. Sed et pro aliis hominibus indesinenter Deum oratis. 
Est enim in ipsis spes poenitentiae, ut Deo potiantur. Monete 

25 igitur ipsos saltern ex operibus a vobis erudiri. Ad iras ipso- 
rum vos mansueti, ad magniloquia eorum vos humilia sapientes, 
ad blasphemias ipsorum vos orationes, ad errorem ipsorum 
vos firmi fide, ad agreste ipsorum vos mansueti ; non festinantes 
imitari ipsos. Fratres ipsorum inveniamur in mansuetudine; 

30 imitatores autem Dei studeamus esse. Quis plus injustum

ing from Ussher's imitation of the traces in the Ms) L^; castificct (apparently) L,.

the Greek t^s iriffreus. 10 operata sunt] reading irpdacreTai for irpiaaeTe, 

and so again just below. hasc spiritualia... operata sunt] Lj ; om. L^.

patiatur, quis fraudetur, quis contemnatur? Ut non diaboli 
herba quis inveniatur in vobis, sed in omni castitate et tempe- 
rantia maneatis in Jesu Christo, carnaliter et spiritualiter. 

XI. Extrema tempora. De cetero verecundemur, et timea- 
mus longanimitatem Dei, ut non nobis in judicium fiat. Vel 5 
enim futuram iram timeamus vel praesentem gratiam diligamus ; 
unum duorum : solum in Christo Jesu invenitur, in verum 
vivere. Sine ipso nihil vos deceat ; in quo vincula circumfero, 
spirituales margaritas, in quibus fiat mihi resurgere oratione 
vestra. Qua fiat mihi semper participem esse; ut in sorte lo 
Ephesiorum inveniar Christianorum, qui et apostolis semper 
consenserunt in virtute Jesu Christi. 

XII. Novi quis sum, et quibus scribo. Ego condemnatus, 
vos propitiationem habentes ; ego sub periculo, vos firmati. 
Transitus estis eorum qui in Deum interficiuntur : Pauli con- 15 
discipuli, sanctificati, martyrizati, dignc beati, cujus fiat mihi 
sub vestigiis inveniri, quando utique Deo fruar ; qui in omni 
epistola memoriam facit vestri in Christo Jesu. 

XIII. Festinate igitur crebrius convenire in gratiarum 
actionem Dei et in gloriam. Quando enim crebro in idipsum 20 
convenitis, destruuntur potentise Satanse, et solvitur perditio 
ipsius in concordia vestrae fidei. Nihil est melius pace ; in qua 
omne bellum evacuatur caelestium et terrestrium. 

XIV. Quorum nullum latet vos, si perfecte in Jesum Chris- 
tum habeatis fidem et caritatem: quai sunt principium vitae et 25 
finis, principium quidem fides, finis autem caritas. Hsec autem 
duo in unitate facta Deus est: alia autem omnia in bonitatem 
sequentia sunt. Nullus fidem repromittens peccat, neque cari- 

I contemnatur] contempnatur Lj L^s. This is the usual spelling in these MSS; 
see on condemnavit, 5. 7 invenitur] LjL^s; probably an eiTor, which has 

crept into the Latin text in the course of transcription, for inveniri, evpeOrjuai. 

16 martyrizati] 7nartirizati Lj L^s. The usual spelling in Lj is martir, martirium, etc. 

17 utique] Lj; om. Lj. 18 Christo Jesu] "L.^; jesu christo Y,^. 19 igitur] 
Lj; ^'^X'" (^PP^rently) Lj. 10 et in] Lj; in (om. et) Lj. i\ Satanse] sathanc 
L, LjS. perditio] proditio {-cio) Lj L^s. The contractions for per and pro 
are easily confused. See profari, perfari, Magn. 10. 22 vestrce fidei] L^ ; 

fidei vestra 'L^. 24 perfecte] "L.^; perfectam'L.^. 11 bonitatem sequentia] Lj; 

bonitate sequenda L^s ; but Ussher probably did not examine the contractions of L, 


tatem possidens odit. Majiifesta est arbor a fructit ipsiiis: sic 
repromittentes Christiani esse, per quae operantur manifesti 
erunt. Non enim nunc repromissionis opus, sed in virtute fidei 
si quis inveniatur in finem. 
5 XV. Melius est silere et esse, quam loquentem non esse. 
Bonum docere, si dicens facit. Unus igitur doctor, qui dixit, et 
factum est: sed et quae silens fecit, digna Patre sunt. Qui ver- 
bum Jesu possidet, vere potest et silentium ipsius audire, ut 
perfectus sit; ut per qua2 loquitur operetur, et per quae silet 

10 cognoscatur. Nihil latet Dominum: sed et abscondita nostra 
prope ipsum sunt. Omnia igitur faciamus, sic ipso in nobis 
habitante: ut simus ipsius templa, et ipse in nobis Deus noster: 
quod et est et apparebit ante faciem nostram, ex quibus juste 
diligimus ipsum. 

15 XVI. Non erretis, fratres mei. Domus corruptores rcgniitn 
Dei non hcBrcditabiint. Si igitur qui secundum carnem haec 
operantur mortui sunt, quanto magis, si quis fidem Dei in mala 
doctrina corrumpat, pro qua Jesus Christus crucifixus est. Talis 
inquinatus factus in ignem inextinguibilem ibit: similiter et qui 

20 audit ipsum. 

XVII. Propter hoc unguentum recepit in capita sue Domi- 
nus, ut spiret ecclesiae incorruptionem. Non ungamini foetore 
doctrinae principis saeculi hujus: non captivet vos ex praesenti 
vivere. Propter quid autem non omnes prudentes sumus, acci- 

25 pientes Dei cognitionem, qui est Jesus Christus.-' Quid fatue 
perdimur, ignorantes charisma quod vere misit Dominus.-* 

XVIII. Peripsima mens spiritus crucis; quae est scandalum 
non credentibus, nobis autem salus et vita aeterna. Ubi sapiens, 
ubi conquisitor, ubi gloriatio dictorum sapientum.'' Deus enim 

carefully, and so noted no difference from the inaccurate transcript of Lj, which 
gives bonitate sequenda. i Manifesta est arbor] Lj ; manifesia autem arbor 

L^. 2 manifesti] manifesta L^L^. 11 igitur] Ljj ergo Lj. sic] 

LjLjS. It should probably be sieut^ik. The contraction for siait differs very 
slightly from sk. 1 1 recepit in capite suo] L^ : in capite suo recepit Lj. 

24 vivere'l So Lj, as I read it; unire L^, according to Ussher; but the two words, 
as contracted, are hardly distinguishable ; and he has probably misread it. quid] 

Lj ; qtcod I/^s. 


noster Jesus Christus conceptus est ex Maria secundum dispen- 
sationem Dei, ex semine quidem David, Spiritu autem Sancto: 
qui natus est, et baptizatus est ut passione aquam purificaret. 

XIX. Et latuit principem saeculi hujus virginitas Mariae, et 
partus ipsius, similiter et mors Domini; tria mysteria clamoris, 5 
quae in silentio Dei operata sunt. Qualiter igitur manifestatus 
est sa^culis.'' Astrum in caelo resplenduit super omnia astra, et 
lumen ipsius ineffabile erat, et stuporem tribuit novitas ipsius. 
Reliqua vero omnia astra, simul cum sole et luna, chorus facta 
sunt illi astro; ipsum autem erat superferens lumen ipsius super 10 
omnia. Turbatio autem erat, unde novitas quae dissimilis ipsis; 
ex qua solvebatur omnis magica, et omne vinculum disparuit 
malitiae, ignorantia ablaca est, vetus regnum corruptum est, Deo 
humanitus apparente in novitatem aeternae vita;. Principium 
autem assumpsit quod apud Deumperfectum. Inde omnia com- 15 
mota erant propter meditari mortis dissolutionem. 

XX. Si me dignificet Jesus Christus in oratione vestra et 
voluntas sit, in secundo libello, quem scripturus sum vobis, 
manifestabo vobis quam inceperam dispensationem in novum 
hominem Jesum Christum, in ipsius fide et in ipsius dilectione, 20 
in passione ipsius et resurrectione; maxime, si Dominus mihi 
revelet. Quoniam qui secundum virum communiter omnes in 
gratia ex nomine convenitis in una fide et in Jesu Christo 
secundum carnem ex genere David, filio hominis et filio Dei, in 
obedire vos episcopo et presbyterio indiscerpta mente; unum 25 
panem frangentes, quod est pharmacum immortalitatis, antido- 
tum ejus quod est non mori sed vivere in Jesu Christo semper.

collation, apparently without being able to decipher it. 


que et caritatis, cui nihil praefertur, principalius autem Jesu et 
Patris, in quo sustinentes omne nocumentum principis saeculi 
hujus et perfugientes Deo potimur. 

II. Quia igitur dignificatus sum videre vos per Damam 
dignum Deo vestrum episcopum, et presbyteros dignos Bassum 5 
et ApoUonium, et conservum meum diaconum Zotionem ; quo 
ego fruar, quoniam subjectus est episcopo ut gratise Dei, et 
presbyterio ut legi Jesu Christi. 

III. Sed et vos decet non couti aetate episcopi, sed secun- 
dum virtutem Dei Patris omnem reverentiam ci tribuere, sicut lo 
agnovi et sanctos presbyteros non assumentes apparentem juni- 
orem ordinem, sed ut prudentes in Deo concedentes ipsi; non 
ipsi autem, sed Patri Jesu Christi omnium episcopo. Inhonorem 
igitur illius volentis nos decens est obedire secundum nullam 
hypocrisim: quia nequaquam episcopum hunc conspectum se- 15 
ducit quis, sed invisibilem paralogizat. Tale autem non ad car- 
nem sermo, sed ad Deum abscondita scientem. 

IV. Decens igitur est, non solum vocari Christianos, sed et 
esse: quemadmodum ct quidam episcopum quidem vocant, sine 
ipso autem omnia operantur. Tales autem non bonae consci- 20 
entiae mihi esse videntur, propter non firmiter secundum praecep- 
tum congregari. 

V. Quia igitur finem res habent, et proponuntur duo simul, 
mors et vita; et unusquisque in proprium locum iturus est : 
quemadmodum enim sunt numismata duo, hoc quidem Dei, hoc 25 
autem mundi, et unumquodque ipsorum proprium characterem

voluntarie habeamus mori in ipsius passionem, vivcre ipsius non

VI. Quia igitur in praescriptis personis omnem multitudi- 
nem speculatus sum in fide et dilectione, moneo in concordia 

5 Dei studete omnia operari; praesidente episcopo in loco Dei, et 
presbyteris in loco consessionis apostolorum, et diaconis mihi 
dulcissimis habentibus creditam ministrationem Jesu Christi, qui 
ante ssecula apud Patrem erat et in fine apparuit. Omnes igitur 
eandem consuetudinem Dei accipientes, veneremini adinvicem; 
10 et nullus secundum carnem aspiciat proximum, sed in Jesu 
Christo adinvicem semper diligite. Nihil sit in vobis, quod 
possit vos partiri, sed uniamini episcopo et prassidentibus in 
typum et doctrinam incorruptionis. 

VII. Quemadmodum igitur Dominus sine Patre nihil fecit, 
15 unitus existens, neque per seipsum neque per apostolos; sic 

neque vos sine episcopo et presbyteris aliquid operemini. Neque 
temptetis rationabile aliquid apparere proprie vobis: sed in idip- 
sum una oratio, una deprecatio, unus intellectus, una spes, in 
caritate, in gaudio incoinquinato; quod est Christus Jesus, quo 
20 melius nihil est. Omnes ut in unum templum concurrite Dei ; 
ut in unum altare, in unum Jesum Christum, ab uno Patre 
exeuntem, et in unum existentem et revertentem. 

VIII. Non erretis extraneis opinionibus, neque fabulis vete- 
ribus inutilibus existentibus. Si enim usque nunc secundum 

25 Judaismum vivimus, confitemur gratiam non recepisse: divinis- 
simi enim prophetae secundum Christum Jesum vixerunt. Prop- 
ter hoc et persecutionem passi sunt, inspirati a gratia ipsius, ad 
certificari impersuasos quoniam unus Deus est qui manifestavit 
seipsum per Jesum Christum filium ipsius; qui est ipsius Ver-

IX. Si igitur in veteribus rebus conversati in novitatem 
spei venerunt, non amplius sabbatizantes, sed secundum domi- 
nicam viventes, in qua et vita nostra orta est per ipsum et 5 
mortem ipsius, quod quidam negant; per quod mysterium acce- 
pimus credere, et propter hoc sustinemus, ut inveniamur disci- 
puli Jesu Christi, solius doctoris nostri; quomodo nos poterimus 
vivere sine ipso? cujus et prophetae discipuli existentes spiritu 
ipsum ut doctorem expectabant; et propter hoc, quern juste ex- 10 
pectabant, praesens suscitavit ipsos ex mortuis. 

X. Non igitur non sentiamus benignitatem ipsius. Si enim 
nos persequatur secundum quod operamur, non ampKus sumus. 
Propter hoc discipuli ejus efifecti discamus secundum Christia- 
nismum vivere. Qui enim alio nomine vocatur amplius ab hoc, 15 
non est Dei, Deponite igitur malum fermentum inveteratum et 
exacescens, et transponite in novum fermentum, qui est Jesus 
Christus. Salificcmini in ipso, ut non corrumpatur aliquis in 
vobis, quia ab odore redarguemini. Inconveniens est Jesum 
Christum profari, et Judaizare. Christianismus enim non in 20 
Judaismum credidit, scd Judaismus in Christianismum: ut omnis 
lingua credens in Deum congregaretiir. 

XL Haec autem, dilecti mei, non quia cognovi aliquos ex 
vobis sic habentes; scd, ut minor vobis, volo prseservari vos, ut 
non incidatis in hanios vanae gloriae, sed certificemini in nativi- ^5 
tate et passione et resurrectione facta in tempore ducatus Pontii 
Pilati; quae facta sunt vere et firmiter a Jesu Christo spe nostra, 
a qua averti nulli vestrum fiat.

XII. Fruar vobis secundum omnia ; siquidem dignus sim. 
Etsi enim ligatus sum, ad unum solutorum de vobis non sum. 
Novi quoniam non inflamini ; Jesum enim Christum habetis in 
vobismetipsis. Et magis quando utique laudo vos, novi quo- 

5 niam verecundamini : sicut scriptum est quoniam Justus sui 
ipsiiis acaisator. 

XIII. Studete igitur firmari in dogmatibus Domini et 
apostolorum, ut omnia qiicscimque facitis prosperenttir, carne 
et spiritu, fide et caritate, in Filio et Patre et in Spiritu, in 

10 principio et in fine, cum digne decentissimo episcopo vestro et

precatus sum vos. Mementote mei in orationibus vestris, ut

IGNATIUS, qui et Theophorus, ecclesiae Dei Patris et Jesu 
Christi quae est in Philadelphia Asiae, habenti propitiationem 
et firmatJE in concordia Dei, et exultanti in passione Domini 
nostri inseparabiliter, et in resurrectione ipsius certificatae in

gaudium aeternum et incoinquinatum ; maxime si in uno simus 
cum episcopo et eis qui cum ipso presbyteris et diaconis mani- 
festatis in sententia Jesu Christi, quos secundum propriam vo- 
luntatem firmavit in firmitudine Sancto ipsius Spiritu. 

I. QUEM episcopum cognovi non a seipso ncque per homi- 10 
nes possedisse administrationem in commune convenientem, 
neque secundum inanem gloriam, sed in caritate Dei Patris et 
Domini Jesu Christi ; cujus obstupui mansuetudinem, qui silens 
plura potest his qui vana loquuntur. Concordes enim estis man- 
datis, ut chordis cithara. Propter quod beatificat mea anima 15 
earn quae in Deum ipsius sententiam, cognoscens virtuosam et 
perfectam existentem, immobile ipsius et inirascibile in omni

II, Filii igitur lucis veritatis, fugite partitionem et malas 
doctrinas : ubi autem pastor est, illic ut oves sequimini. Multi 
enim lupi fide digni delectatione mala captivant in Deum cur- 
sores ; sed in unitate vestra non habent locum. 
5 III. Recedite a malis herbis, quas non colit Jesus Christus ; 
propter non esse ipsos plantationem Patris. Non quoniam apud 
vos partitionem inveni, sed abstractionem. Quotquot enim Dei 
sunt et Jesu Christi, isti cum episcopo sunt ; et quotquot utique 
poenitentes veniunt in unitatem ecclesiae, et isti Dei erunt, ut 
10 sint secundum Jesum Christum viventes. Non erretis, fratres 
mei. Si quis schisma facientem sequitur, regnum Dei non Jicerc- 
ditat; si quis in aliena sententia circumambulat, iste passioni 
non concordat. 

IV. Studete igitur una gratiarum actione uti. Una enim 
15 caro Domini nostri Jesu Christi et unus calix in unionem san- 
guinis ipsius, unum altare, ut unus episcopus cum presbyterio et 
diaconis conservis meis ; ut quod facitis, secundum Deum 

V. Fratres mei, valde effusus sum diligens vos, et superex- 
20 ultans corroboro vos ; non ego autem, sed Jesus Christus, in quo 

vinctus timeo magis, ut adhuc existens imperfectus. Sed oratio 
vestra me perficiet, ut in qua haereditate propitiationem habuero, 
potiar, confugiens evangelio ut carni Jesu, et apostolis ut presby- 
terio ecclesiae. Sed et prophetas diligamus, propter et ipsos in 
25 evangelium annunciasse et in ipsum sperare et ipsum expectare; 
in quo et credentes salvati sunt in unitate Jesu Christi, exis- 
tentes digne dilecti et digne admirabiles sancti, a Jesu Christo 
testificati et connumerati in evangelio communis spei.

Si autem utrique de Jesu Christo non loquantur, isti mihl co- 
lumnae sunt et sepulcra mortuorum, in quibus scripta sunt so- 
lum nomina hominum. Fugite igitur malas artes et insidias 
principis sseculi hujus ; ne forte tribulati sententia ipsius infirm e- 
mini in caritate. Sed et omnes in idipsum fiatis in impartibili 5 
corde. Gratias autem ago Deo meo, quoniam bonam habens 
conscientiam ego sum in vobis, et non liabet aliquis gloriari, ne- 
que occulte neque manifeste, quoniam gravavi aliquem in parvo 
vel in magno. Sed et omnibus in quibus locutus sum oro, ut 
non in testimonium ipsum possideant. 10 

VII. Si enim et secundum carnem me quidam voluerunt 
seducere, sed spiritus non seducitur, a Deo existens : 7iovit enim 
unde venit et quo vadit, et occulta redarguit. Clamavi in inter- 
medio existens ; locutus sum magna voce, Dei voce, Episcopo 
attendite et presbyterio et diaconis. Quidam autem suspicati 15 
me ut prsescientem divisionem quorundam dicere hsec ; testis 
autem mihi in quo vinctus sum, quoniam a carne humana non 
cognovi. Spiritus autem prsedicavit, dicens liaec : Sine episcopo 
nihil faciatis. Carnem vestram ut templum Dei servate. Uni- 
tatem diligite : divisiones fugite. Imitatores estote Jesu Christi, 20 
ut et ipse Patris ipsius. 

VIII. Ego quidem igitur proprium faciebam, ut homo in 
unitatem perfectus. Ubi autem divisio est et ira, Deus non ha- 
bitat. Omnibus igitur pcenitentibus dimittit Dominus, si poeni- 
teant in unitatem Dei et concilium episcopi. Credo gratiae Jesu 25 
Christi, qui solvet a vobis omne vinculum. Deprecor autem vos 
nihil secundum contentionem facere, sed secundum Christi dis-

cipHnam. Quia audivi quosdam dicentes quoniam Si non in 
veteribus invenio, in evangelio non credo : et dicente me ipsis 
quoniam Scriptum est, responderunt mihi quoniam Prajacet. 
Mihi autem principium est Jesus Christus ; inapproximabilia 
2 principia crux ipsius et mors et resurrectio ipsius, et fides quae 
per ipsum ; in quibus volo in oratione vestra justificari. 

IX. Boni et sacerdotes, melius autem princeps sacerdotum, 
cui credita sunt sancta sanctorum, cui soli credita sunt occulta 
Dei, qui ipse est janua Patris per quam ingrediuntur Abraham 

10 et Isaac et Jacob et prophetse et apostoli et ecclesia : omnia 
haec in unitatem Dei. Praecipuum autem aliquid habet evange- 
lium, praesentiam salvatoris Domini nostri Jesu Christi, passio- 
nem ipsius, resurrectionem. Dilecti enim proplietae annuncia- 
verunt in ipsum ; evangelium autem perfectio est incorruptionis. 

15 Omnia simul bona sunt, si in caritate creditis, 

X. Quia secundum orationem vestram, et secundum viscera 
misericordiae quae habetis in Christo Jesu, annunciatum est mihi 
pacem habere ecclesiam quae est in Antiochia Syriae, decens est 
vos, ut ecclesiam Dei, ordinare diaconum ad intercedendum illic 

20 Dei intercessionem, in congaudere ipsis in idipsum factis et glo- 
rificare nomen. Beatus in Jesu Christo, qui dignificabitur tali 
ministratione ; et vos glorificabimini. Volentibus autem vobis 
non est impossibile pro nomine Dei ; ut et quaedam propinquae 
ecclesias miserunt episcopos, quaedam autem presbytcros et 

25 diaconos. 

XL De Philone autem diacono a Cilicia, viro testimonium 
habente, qui et nunc in verbo Dei ministrat mihi, cum Reo 
Agathopode viro electo, qui a Syria me sequitur abrenuncians

IGNATIUS, qui et Theophorus, dilectae Deo patri Jesu 
Christi ecclesiae sanctae existenti in Tralesiis Asise, electae 
et Deo dignse, pacem habenti in carne et. sanguine et passione 
Jesu Christi spei nostrse, in ea quae in ipsum resurrectione ; lo 
quam et saluto in plenitudine, in apostohco charactere, et oro 
plurimum gaudere. 

I. Incoinquinatam mentem et inseparabilem in sustinen- 
tia cognovi vos habentes, non secundum usuin sed secundum 
naturam; quemadmodum ostendit mihi Polybius episcopus 15 
vester, qui advenit voluntate Dei et Jesu Christi in Smyrna ; et 
sic mihi congavisus est vincto in Christo Jesu, ut ego omnem 
multitudinem vestram in ipso speculer. Recipiens igitur eam 
quae secundum Deum aequanimitatem per ipsum, gloriatus sum 
inveniens vos, ut cognovi, imitatores Dei. 20 

II. Quando enim episcopo subjecti estis ut Jesu Christo, 
videmini mihi non secundum homines viventes sed secundum 

Ignatius Tralesiis] L^ ; epistola 6a ignacH tralesiis asice . quomodo mul-

Jesuni Christum propter vos mortuum, ut credentes in mortem 
ipsius mori effugiatis. Necessarium igitur est, quemadmodum 
facitis, sine episcopo nihil operari vos, sed subjici et presbyterio 
ut apostolis Jesu Christi, spei nostrae, in quo conversantes in- 
5 veniamur. Oportet autem et diaconos, ministros existentes 
mysteriorum Jesu Christi, secundum omnem modum omnibus 
placere ; non enim ciborum et potuum sunt ministri, sed eccle- 
sise Dei ministri. Opportunum igitur eos observare accusa- 
tiones, ut ignem. 

10 III. Similiter et omnes revereantur diaconos ut mandatum 
Jesu Christi, et episcopum ut Jesum Christum, existentem 
filium Patris ; presbyteros autem, ut concilium Dei et con- 
junctionem apostolorum. Sine his ecclesia non vocatur: de 
quibus suadeor vos sic habere. Exemplarium enim caritatis 

15 vestras accepi et habeo cum meipso in episcopo vestro ; cujus 
ipsa compositio magna est disciplinatio, mansuetudo autem 
ipsius potentia ; quem existimo et impios revereri : diligentes 
quod non parco ipsum aliqualem, potens scribere pro illo : in 
hoc existimer, ut existens condemnatus, velut apostolus vobis 

20 prfficipiam. 

IV. Multa sapio in Deo ; sed meipsum mensuro, ut non in 
gloriatione perdar. Nunc enim me oportet plus timere, et non 
attendere inflantibus me ; dicentes enim mihi flagellant me. 
Diligo quidem enim pati, sed non novi si dignus sum. Zelus 

25 enim multis quidem non apparet, me autem plus oppugnat. 
Indigeo igitur mansuetudine, in qua dissolvitur princeps saeculi

ne parvulis existentibus vobis damnum apponam. Et con- 
donate mihi, ne forte non potentes capere strangulemini. 
Etenim ego non secundum quodcunque ligatus sum, sed potens 
supercaelestia et loci positiones angelicas et constitutiones prin- 
cipatorias, visibiliaque et invisibilia, praeter hoc jam et discipulus 5 
sum. Multa enim nobis deficiunt, ut Deo non deficiamus. 

VI. Deprecor igitur vos, non ego, sed caritas Jesu Christi, 
solo Christiano alimento utamini ; ab aliena autem herba rece- 
dite, quae est haeresis, quae et inquinatis implicat Jesum Chris- 
tum : quemadmodum mortiferum pharmacum dantes cum vino 10 
mellito ; quod qui ignorat, delectabiliter accipit, et in delecta- 
tione mala mori. 

VII. Observemini igitur a talibus. Hoc autem erit vobis 
non inflatis, et existentibus inseparabilibus a Deo Jesu Christo 

et episcopo et ordinibus apostolorum. Qui intra altare est, 15 
mundus est : qui vero extra altare est, non mundus est : hoc 
est, qui sine episcopo et presbyterio et diacono operatur ali- 
quid, iste non mundus est in conscientia. 

VIII. Non quia cognovi tale quid in vobis, sed praeservo

(om. non) L,^. 4 supercaelestia] Lj L,^. In Lj supercelestia is contracted 

srcelestia, this being a common contraction of super. There is no authority for 
scire calestia, which arises from misreading the contraction. The rendering of 
firovpavia is not ccBlestia, but siipercalestia, as it is given a few lines above ; comp. 
sttpe7-indigeo, eTriSeo/iai, Magn. 14. The coincidence that some Greek texts (correctly) 
have voiv ra, eirovpdvia has encouraged this misreading of the Latin. principa- 

torias] principatias L.^ 5 principa""^ (apparently) Lj. Some adjective is wanted to 
represent the Greek dpxovTiKa%. If my conjecture principatorias (comp. administra- 
torms = \enovpyiK6s, Hero 7) is a new coinage, this is the case also -w'xih. principationes 
which is generally given as the reading of the Latin here. The former more nearly 
represents the original, and also better explains the phenomena of the Mss.

insipientes ea quae in Deo multitudo blasphemetur. V<2 enim

IX. Obsurdescite igitur, quando vobis sine Jesu Christo lo- 
quitur quis ; qui ex genere David, qui ex Maria ; qui vere natus 

10 est, comedit et bibit ; vere persecutionem passus est sub Pontio 
Pilato ; vere crucifixus est et mortuus est, adspicientibus cseles- 
tibus et terrestribus et infernalibus ; qui et vere resurrexit a 
mortuis, resuscitante ipsum Patre ipsius ; qui et secundum simi- 
litudinem nos credentes ipsi sic resuscitabit Pater ipsius in 

15 Christo Jesu, sine quo verum vivere non habemus. 

X. Si autem, quemadmodum quidam sine Deo existentes, 
hoc est infideles, dicunt secundum videri passum esse ipsum, 
ipsi existentes secundum videri ; ego quid vinctus sum ? quid 
autem et oro cum bestiis pugnare ^. Gratis igitur morior : ergo 

20 non reprehendor mendacii a Domino ? 

XI. Fugite ergo malas propagines generantes fructum mor- 
tiferum ; quem si gustet quis, statim moritur. Isti enim non 
sunt plantatio Patris : si enim essent, apparerent utique rami 
crucis, et esset utique fructus ipsorum incorruptibiHs, per quem 

25 in passione ipsius advocat vos, existentes membra ipsius. Non 
potest igitur caput nasci sine membris, Deo unionem repromit- 
tente, quod est ipse. 

XII. Saluto vos a Smyrna cum comprcesentibus mihi ec- 
clesiis Dei ; qui secundum omnia me quiescere fecerunt carne et 

30 spiritu. Deprecantur vos vincula mea, quae pro Jesu Christo 
fero petens Deo frui, Permanete in concordia vestra, et ea qu?e

XIII. Salutat vos caritas Smyrnaeorum et Ephesiorum. 5 
Mementote in orationibus vestris ejus quae in Syria ecclesiae ; 
unde non dignus sum dici, existens extremus illorum. Valete 
in Jesu Christo, subjecti episcopo ut Dei mandato, similiter et 
presbyterio. Et singuli adinvicem diligite in impartibili corde. 
Castificate vestrum meum spiritum, non solum nunc, sed et 10

lo II. Pro eo autem quod juvenes sunt praescripti formides 
nihil, o beate ; cognoscere enim te volo, quod sapiunt super 
carnem et ipsius passiones non sentiunt ipsi in seipsis, recenti 
juventute sacerdotii refulgentes canitie. Perscrutare autem 
cogitationem tuam per datum tibi a Deo per Christum spiri-

Videns vocatus est, et choro prophetarum connumeratus pres- 
byterum Heli transgressionis redarguit ; quoniam insanientes 
filios Deo omnium causae praehonoravit, et ludentes in sacer- 
dotium et in populum luxuriantes dimisit impunitos. 

20 III. Daniel autem sapiens, juvenis existens, judicavit 
crudeles senes quosdam, ostendens adulteros ipsos et non 
seniores esse, et genere Judaeos existentes modo Chananaeos

ipsi a Deo prophetiam, audit ; Non dicas qnoniam Junior sum ; 

25 quia ad omnes quoscunqite inittam tc ibis, et secundum omnia

IV. Josias autem Dei amator, inarticulate fere adhuc 
loquens, redarguit malo spiritu detentos, quod falsiloqui et 5 
populi seductores existunt : dsemonumque revelat deceptionem, 
et eos non existentes deos demonstrat, et sacratos ipsis, puer 
existens, interficit, delubraque ipsorum evertit, et altaria mortuis 
reliquiis inquinat, templaque delet, et saltus succidit, et colum- 
nas conterit, et impiorum sepulcra suffodit ; ut neque signum 10 
amplius malorum existat. Sic quidam zelotes erat religionis 

et impiorum punitor, adhuc balbutiens lingua. David autem, 
propheta simul et rex, salvatoris secundum carnem radix, puer 
ungitur a Samuele in regem. Ait enim alicubi ipse quoniam 
Parv7is cram inter fratres vieos ct junior in domo patris mei. 1 5 

V. Et deficiet mihi tempus, si omnes investigare voluero, 
qui in juventute bene placuerunt Deo, prophetia et sacerdo- 
tio et regno a Deo donati. Rememorationis autem gratia 
sufficiunt et haec dicta. Sed te deprecor, ne tibi quaedam 
superba esse videar et ostentatrix. Non enim docens te, sed 20 
subrememorans meum in Deo patrem, hos apposui sermones : 
cognosco enim mei ipsius mensuras et non coextendo meip- 
sam tantis vobis. Saluto tuum sanctum clerum sub tua cura

sed non gratia carnali. Multum enim mihi erant et continue: 
tuai scriptibilium locorum memoriae, quas legens neque usque 5 
ad intellectum dubitavi circa rem. Non enim habebam aliqui- 
bus oculis excurrere, quorum habebam incontradicibilem a te 
factam demonstrationem. Conformis animae tecum fiam ego, 
quoniam diligis Jesum filium Dei viventis : propter quod et

Jesu Christo multiphcetur semper. 

I. A Syria usque Romam cum bestiis pugno ; non ab 
irrationalibus bestiis comestus (hae enim, ut scitis, Deo volente 

10 pepercerunt Danieli), ab his autem quse humanae formas, inter 
quas immansueta bestia latitans pungit me quotidie et vul- 
nerat. Scd de nullo sermonejn facio durorum, ncqite Jiabeo 
animam pretiosam mihi ipsi, ut diligens ipsam magis quam 
Dominum. Propter quod paratus sum ad ignem, ad bestias, 

15 ad gladium, ad crucem : solum Jesum Christum sciens salva- 

torem meum et Deum, pro me mortuum. Deprecor igitur vos 

ego vinctus Christi, per terram et mare jactatus ; State in fide 

firnii, quoniam Justus ex fide vivet : estote inflexibiles, quo- 

niam Domimis inhabitare facit unius maris in domo. 

20 II. Novi quoniam quidam ministrorum Satanae voluerunt 
vos turbare : hi quidem, quoniam Jesus opinione natus est et 
opinione crucifixus est et opinione mortuus est ; hi autem, 
quoniam non est fihus conditoris ; hi vero, quoniam ipse est 
qui super omnia Deus ; ahi autem, quoniam nudus homo est,

qui a Hierosolymis ct circuvi tLsqiie Illyrictim iniplcvit cvangc-

III. Cujus memores, omnino cognoscitis quoniam Jesus 
Dominus vere natus est ex Maria, factus ex muliere, et veri- 
tate crucifixus est; MiJii eiiiin, ait non fiat gloriari nisi in 10 
cruce Domini: et veritate mortuus est, et resurrexit ; Si passi- 
bilis enim, ait, Christus, i,i priuins ex resiirrectione mortiiontm; 
et, Quod mortuus est, peecato mortuus est semcl, quod autcm 
vivit, Deo vivit. Quia quid opus vinculis, Christo non mortuo .*

vane : veritate enim crucifixus est Dominus ab impiis. 

IV. Et sic natus ex muHere filius est Dei ; et crucifixus pri- 20

et lit ipso crcata sunt omnia qucs in ecelo et in terra, visibilia et 2^

coaderam ipsi, et illic eram apud ipsum eomponens, et applaudebat 
mihi quotidie. Oualiter autem utique nudus homo audiret, Sede

secundum imaginem Dei fecit ipsum. Et deinceps quoniam 
hi imagine Dei feci hominem. Et quoniam fiet homo, ait ; 10 
Proplietam vobis suscitahit Dominus ex fratribus vestris siciit 

III. Prophets autem, dicentes ut ex persona Dei, Ego Dens 
primus et ego post hcee, et prceter me non est Deus, de patre om- 
nium dicunt. Et de Domino nostro Jesu Christo, Filius, ait, 15 
datus est nobis, cuius principium desuper: et vacatur nomen ipsius 
viagni consilii angelus, admirabilis, consiliarius, Deus fortis, po- 
testativus. Et de inhumanatione ipsius ; Ecce virgo in utero 
concipiet et pariet fi'tiwn, et vocabunt nomen ejus Emanuel. Et 
de passione ; Ut ovis ad occisione^n ductus est, et quasi agnus 20 
coram tondente ipsum sine voce; et, Ego sicut agnus innocens 
ductus ad sacrificandum. 

IV. Et evangehstae, dicentes unum Patrem solum verum 
Deum, et quae secundum Dominum nostrum non dereliquerunt, 
sed scripserunt ; In principio erat Verbum, et Verbum erat apud 25 
Deum, et Deus erat Verbum. Hoc erat in principio apud Deum. 
Omnia per ipsum facta sunt, et sine ipso factum est niJiil. Et de 
inhumanatione, Verbum, ait, cava factum est et Jiabitavit in

5 titicE. Et qui confitetur Christum non ejus qui fecit mundum 
filium, sed alterius cujusdam incogniti praeter quern prsedicavit 
lex et prophetae, iste organum est ipsius diaboli. Et qui inhu- 
manationem renuit, et crucem erubescit, propter quam ligatus 
sum, iste est Antichristus. Et qui nudum hominem dicit Chris- 
10 tum, maledictus est secundum prophetam, non in Deo confidens 
sed in Jiomine. Propter quod et sine fructu est, proximus 
agresti myriccs. 

VI. Haec scribo vobis, o Christi juventus, non conscius vobis 
habere talem sensum, sed prseservans vos, ut pater proprios filios. 

15 Videte igitur in malum currentes operatores, inimicos critcis 
Christi; quorum finis per ditio, quorum Deus venter, et gloria in 
confusio7ie ipsonnn. Videte canes sine voce, serpentes surrepentes, 
infoveatos dracones, aspides, basiliscos, scorpiones. Isti enim 
sunt thoes vulpes, hominis imitatores simiae.

Recordamini Euodii digne beati pastoris vestri, qui primus or-

conversatus sum vobiscum. Quae prassens dicebam vobis, haec 

25 et absens scribo ; Qui non amat Dominum Jesum, sit ajiatJiema.

Diaconi cognoscant cujus sint dignitatis, et studeant immaculati 
esse, ut sint imitatores Christi. Populus subjiciatur presbyteris 
et diaconis. Virgines cognoscant cui consecraverunt seipsas. 5 

IX, Viri diligant conjuges ; recordantes quoniam una uni, 
non multae uni, datae sunt in creatione. Mulieres honorent viros, 
ut propriam carnem, neque ex nomine ipsos audeant vocare : 
castificent autem, solos viros conjuges esse existimantes, quibus

II. Omnis qui dicit prseter prascepta, etsi dignus fide sit, 
etsi jejunet, etsi virginitatem servet, etsi signa faciat et prophetet, 20 
lupus tibi appareat in ovis pelle, ovium corruptionem operans. 
Si quis negat crucem et passionem erubescit, sit tibi sicut Anti- 
christus et adversarius ; etsi distribuat in cibos qucd Jiabct pau-

quos Christus praesens adimplevit, sit tibi ut Antichristus. Si 
quis hominem nudum dicit Dominum, Judaeus est Christi occisor.

sacerdotum. Illi baptizant, sacrificant, manus imponunt ; tu 
autem ipsis ministra, ut Stephanus sanctus in Hierosolymis Ja- 
cobo et presbyteris. Congregationes non negligas : ex nomine 
omnes require. Nullus tuam jiiventutem contemnat; sed exem- 
t^phim esto fidcliiim in sernione et co7iversatione. 

IV. Servos non erubesce; communis enim nobis et ipsis na- 
tura. Mulieres non abominare ; ipsae enim te genuerunt et enu- 
triverunt. Diligere igitur oportet causas generationis ; solum in 
Domino. Sine muliere autem vir non pueros faciet : honorare 

lo igitur oportet conjuges generationis. Neqiie vir sine muliere, 
neque miilier sine viro, nisi in protoplastis. Adse enim corpus ex 
quatuor elementis ; Evae autem ex costa Adae. Sed et gloriosus 
partus Domini ex sola virgine, non abominabili legali mixtione,

20 cessor Cain fratri invidens et ex invidia homicidium operans.

non negligas, in quibus utique abundas ; Elemosinis enim et 
fide piirgantur peccata.

Christi existis, organumque Spiritus. Nosti qualiter te enutrivi. 
Etsi minimus sum, zelotes mei fias : imitare meam conversatio-

do enim in Patrem Domini nostri Jesu Christi, et in unigenitum 
ipsius Filium, quoniam ostendet mihi Deus Heronem in throno

et in Christo, praesente et Spiritu Sancto et administratoriis 10

posuimus tibi ; et non teipsum indignum judices expectatis de

Deo decens presbyterium. Saluta sanctos condiaconos tuos ; 
quibus ego fruar in Domino, carne et spiritu. Saluta populum 
Domini a parvo usque ad magnum secundum nomen ; quos 
commendo tibi, ut Moyses Jesu post ipsum duci. Et non tibi 20 
videatur grave quod dictum est. Et si non sumus tales quales 
illi, sed tamen oramus fieri ; quia et Abraham sumus pueri.

gubernaculo orationis et jejunii, continuitate doctrinse, robore

ne aliquem eorum qui pusillanimes et magis simplices pro-

quiescente ad paucum persecutione ; dubitavit autem secun-

II. Trajano enim post, quarto anno imperii sui, elato de 
victoria ilia quse adversus Scythas et Thraces et alteras mul- 5 
tas et diversas gentes, et existimante adhuc deficere ipsi ad 
omnem subjectionem Christianorum Deum venerantem congre- 
gationem, nisi daemoniacam cogeret culturam cum omnibus 
subintrare gentibus ; persecutionem comminans, omnes ipsos 
Dei cultores existentes vel sacrificare vel mod cogebat. Tunc 10 
igitur timens pro Antiochenorum ecclesia virilis Christi miles 
voluntarie ductus est ad Trajanum, agentem quidem secundum 
illud tempus apud Antiochiam, festinantem autem ad Armeniam 
et Parthos. Ut autem coram facie stetit imperatoris Trajani, 
Trajanus dixit: Quis es, cacodaemon, nostras festinans praecep- 15 
tiones transcendere, cum et alteros persuadere, ut perdantur 
male ? Ignatius dixit : Nullus Theophorum vocat cacodaemo- 
nem ; recesserunt enim longe a servis Dei daemonia. Si autem, 
quoniam his gravis sum, malum me adversus daemones vocas, 
confiteor: Christum enim habens supercaelestem regem dissolvo 20 
horum insidias. Trajanus dixit: Et quis est Theophorus? Ig- 
natius respondit : Qui Christum habet in pectore. Trajanus 
dixit : Nos igitur tibi videmur non habere secundum intellec- 
tum deos, quibus utimur compugnatoribus adversus adversarios?

Ignatius dixit : Dsemonia gentium deos appellas errans. Unus 
enim est Deus, qui fecit cselum et terram et mare et omnia 
quse in ipsis ; et unus Christus Jesus, Filius ipsius unigenitus, 
cujus amicitia fruar, Trajanus dixit : Crucifixum dicis sub 
5 Pontic Pilato ? Ignatius dixit : Crucifigentem peccatum cum 
hujus inventore, et omnem condemnantem daemoniacam mali- 
tiam sub pedibus eorum qui ipsum in corde ferunt. Trajanus 
dixit : Tu igitur in teipso Christum circumfers ? Ignatius dixit: 
Etiam : scriptum est enim, Inhabitabo in ipsis et inambulabo. 

lo Trajanus sententiavit : Ignatium praecipimus, in seipso dicen- 
tem circumferre crucifixum, vinctum a militibus duci in mag- 
nam Romam cibum bestiarum in spectaculum futurum plebis. 
Hanc audiens sanctus martyr sententiam cum gaudio excla- 
mavit: Gratias ago tibi, Domine, quoniam me perfecta ad te 

15 caritate honorare dignatus es, cum apostolo tuo Paulo vinculis 
colligari ferreis. Hsec dicens et cum gaudio circumponens 
vincula oransque prius pro ecclesia et hanc cum lacrimis com- 
mendans Domino, velut aries insignis boni gregis dux, a bestiaU 
mihtari duritia raptus est, bestiis crudivorantibus ad Romam

hendere per bonam confessionem et per coorantium pro cer- 
tamine studium, reddi autem mercedem ecclesiis obviantibus 
ipsi per praecedentes htteras gratias agens appositas ad

nationem abscindat, bona aperta ipsi porta martyrii, taha ad 
ecclesiam mittit Romanorum, ut subordinata sunt.

I. Deprecans Deum, attigi videre vestras dignas visione 
fades, ut et amplius petebam accipere. Ligatus enim in Christo 
Jesu, spero vos salutare ; siquidem voluntas sit, ut dignificer in 
finem esse. Principium quidem enim bene dispensatum est ; 

5 siquidem gratia potiar, ad haereditatem meam sine impedimento 
lucrari. Timeo enim caritatem vestram, ne ipsa me Isedat. 
Vobis enim facile est quod vultis facere; mihi autem difficile 
est Deo potiri, siquidem vos non parcitis mihi. 

II. Non enim volo vos hominibus placere, sed Deo placere; 
lo quemadmodum et placetis. Neque enim ego habebo aliquando 

tempus tale Deo potiendi, neque vos, si taceatis, meliori operi 
habetis inscribi. Si enim taceatis a me, ego verbum Dei ; si 
autem desideretis carnem meam, rursus factus sum vox. Plus 
autem mihi non tribuetis, quam sacrificari Deo, dum adhuc 
15 sacrificatorium paratum est: ut in caritate chorus effecti can- 
tetis Patri in Jesu Christo, quoniam episcopum Syrian dignifica- 
vit Deus inveniri in occidentem ab oriente transmittens. Bonum 
occidere a mundo in Deum, ut in ipso oriar. 

III. Nunquam invidistis in aliquo ; alios edocuistis. Ego 
20 autem volo, ut et ilia firma sint quae docentes praecepistis. 

Solum mihi potentiam petatis ab intra et ab extra, ut non 
solum dicam, sed et velim; non ut solum dicar Christianus, sed 
et inveniar. Si enim inveniar, et dici possum ; et tunc fidelis 
esse, quando utique mundo non appareo. Nihil apparentia

the next note. 13 vox] LjL^s. In the margin Ussher writes velox, correspond-

bonum est. Deus enim noster Jesus Christus in Patre existens 
magis apparet. Non suasionis opus sed magnitudinis est Christi- 
anus, quando utique oditur a mundo. 

IV. Scribo ecclesiis, et pra^cipio omnibus quoniam volens 
pro Deo morior, siquidem vos non prohibeatis. Deprecor vos, 5 
non Concordia intempestiva fiatis milii. Dimittite me bestia- 
rum esse cibum ; per quas est Deo potiri. Frumentum sum 
Dei, et per dentes bestiarum molar, ut mundus panis inveniar 
Christi. Magis blandite bestiis, ut milii sepulcrum fiant, et 
nihil derelinquant eorum quae corporis mei ; ut non dormiens 10 
gravis alicui inveniar. Tunc ero discipulus vere Jesu Christi, 
quando neque corpus mcum mundus videbit. Orate Christum 
pro me, ut per organa ista Dei sacrificium inveniar. Non ut 
Petrus et Paulus pra^cipio vobis. I Hi apostoli, ego condem- 
natus; illi liberi, ego usque nunc servus. Sed si patiar, manu- 15 
missus fiam Jesu Christi, et resurgam liber. Et nunc disco 
vinctus nihil concupiscere.

jiistificatiis snm. Sortiar bestiis mihi esse paratis, et oro 
promptas mihi inveniri ; quibus et blandiar cito me devorare ; 
non quemadmodum quosdam timentes non tetigerunt ; sed et 
si ipsae volentem non velint, ego vim faciam. Veniam mihi 25 
habete : quid mihi confert, ego cognosco. Nunc incipio disci-

5 nare super terminos terrae. Ilium quaero qui pro nobis mor- 
tuus est, ilium volo qui propter nos resurrexit: ille lucrum 
mihi adjacet. Ignoscite mihi, fratres: non impediatis me vivere, 
non velitis me mori, Dei volentem esse ; per mundum non 
separetis me, neque per materiam seducatis. Dimittite me 
TO purum lumen accipere : illuc adveniens, homo ero. Sinite me

de vobis adjuvet ipsi; magis autem mei fiatis, hoc est, Dei 
mei. Non loquimini Jesum Christum, et mundum concupis- 
catis. Invidia in vobis non inhabitet : neque utique ego praesens 
vos deprecor, credite mihi ; his autem magis credite quae 

20 scribo vobis. Vivens enim scribo vobis, desiderans mori. Meum 
desiderium crucifixum est ; et non est in me ignis amans ali- 
quam aquam ; sed vivens et loquens est in me, intus me dicit, 
Veni ad Patrem. Non delector cibo corruptionis, neque delec- 
tationibus vitae hujus. Panem Dei volo, quod est caro Jesu

et abortivum; sed misericordiam consecutus sum aliquis esse, si 
Deo fruar. Salutat vos mens spiritus, et caritas ecclesiarum 
quae receperunt me in nomine Jesu Christi, ut non transeun- 
tem. Etenim non advenientes mihi in via quae secundum car- 
nem, secundum civitatem me praecesserunt. 15 

X. Scribo autem vobis haec a Smyrna per Ephesios digne 
beatos. Est autem et simul mecum cum aliis multis et Crocus, 
desideratum mihi nomen. De advenientibus mecum a Syria in 
Romam ad gloriam Dei credo vos cognovisse : quibus et mani- 
festatis prope me existentem. Omnes enim sunt digni Deo et 20 
vobis : quos decens est vos secundum omnia quietare. Scripsi 
autem vobis haec in ea quae ante novem Kalendas Septembres. 
Valete in finem in sustinentia Jesu Christi. 

V. PERFICIENS igitur, ut volebat, eos qui in Roma fra- 
trum absentes per epistolam, sic ductus a Smyrna (urgebatur enim 25 
a militibus Christophorus occupare honores in magna civitate, ut 
in conspectu plebis Romanorum bestiis feris projectus corona 
justitiae per tale certamen potiatur) attigit ad Troadem. Deinde

sancto Potiolis, ipse quidem exire festinavit, secundum vestigia 
5 ambulare volens apostoli Pauli : ut autem incidens violentus 
non concessit ventus, nave a prora repulsa, beatificans earn qus

compleretur desiderium secundum quod scriptum est, Deside-

reliquiarum; secundum quod praeoccupans in epistola propriam

totam noctem vigilantes, et multum cum genuflexione et ora-

factis, parum obdormitantes, hi quidem repente astantem et 
amplexantem nos videbant, hi autem rursus superorantem nobis 
videbant beatum Ignatium, quemadmodum ex labore multo 
advenientem, et astantem Domino in multa confidentia et ineffa- 
bili gloria. Impleti autem gaudio haec videntes, et glorificantes 20 
Deum datorem bonorum, et beatificantes sanctum, manifesta- 
vimus vobis et diem et tempus, ut secundum tempus martyrii 
congregati communicemus athletse et virili Christi martyri, qui 
conculcavit diabolum et hujus insidias in finem prostravit ; 
glorificantes in ipsius venerabili et sancta memoria Dominum 25

After the close of the Martyriitm is the following colophon ; Scripsit heahis igna- 
cuts sjitij-neis a troade, policarpo a troade, tralesiis [iox wliich ephesiis is substituted 
in the marg.] a smirna, magnesiis a sminia, philadelphis a troade, iralesiis a siiiirna,

word is accidentally omitted; the word is written in ivW smyrnam L^], martirhim

L2 aiitein is added after sciipsit ; the sentences magnesiis .. .thraksiis a sniinia, and mar- 
tiriiun...romanortiin are omitted; and it concludes consuminatori bonorum deo gratias. 
Owing to Ussher's mode of collating, the minor variations of spelling are uncertain, 
except that it has sinyrneis for smirneis, si!iyr7!a for sviirna, etc. After this colophon 
the four Latin epistles follow immediately, without any heading, being numbered 14, 
IS 16, 17, respectively in the marg. of Lj.

77ie Epistle of Mar Ignatius the Bishop, to Poly carp*. 

IGNATIUS, who is Theophorus, to Polycarp, bishop of Smyrna, 
who himself is more visited by God the Father and by Jesus 
Christ our Lord; much gi-eeting. 

Forasmuch as thy mind, which is fixed in God as upon an 
immoveable rock, is acceptable to me, I praise God the more abun- 
dantly that I have been accounted worthy of thy countenance which 
I long for in God. I beseech thee then, by the grace with which 
thou art clothed, to add to thy course, and to pray for all men that 
they may be saved ; and require thou things becoming with all dili- 
gence of flesh and of spirit. Be careful for concord, than which 
nothing is more excellent. Bear all men, as our Lord beareth 
thee. Be longsuffering with all men in love, as thou art (doest). 
Be constant in prayer. Ask for more understanding than thou 
hast. Be watchful, for thou possessest a spirit that sleepeth 
not. Speak with all men according to the will of God. Bear the 
infirmity of all men like a perfect athlete; for where the labour is 
much, much also is the gain. If thou love the good disciple only, 
thou hast no grace. Rather subdue those who are evil by gentle- 
ness; for' all sores are not healed by one medicine. Allay cutting 
by embrocation*. Be wise as the serpent in everything, and innocent 
as the dove with respect to those things which are requisite. On 
this account art thou of flesh and of spirit, that thou mayest allure those 
things which are seen before thy face; and respecting those things

which are hidden from thee, ask that they may be revealed to thee, 
that thou mayest be lacking in nothing, and mayest abound in all 
gifts. The time requireth', as the pilot the ship, and as he who 
standeth in the tempest the haven, that thou shouldest be worthy of 
God. Be vigilant, as an athlete of God. That which is promised 
to us is life eternal incorruptible, of which thou also art persuaded. 
In everything I will be instead of thy soul, and my bonds which thou 
hast loved. Let not those who seem to be {or, who think themselves) 
something and teach strange doctrines, astound thee; but stand in 
truth, like an athlete who is smitten : for it is [the part] of a great 
athlete that he should be smitten and conquer. More especially for 
God's sake it behoveth us to endure everything, that He also may 
endure us. Be diligent more than thou art. Be discerning of the 
times. Expect Him who is above the times. Him to whom there 
are no times ^ Him who is unseen, Him who for our sakes was seen, 
Him who is impalpable. Him who is impassible, Him who for our 
sakes suffered, Him who endured every thing in every form for our 
sakes. Let not the widows be neglected. For our Lord's sake be thou 
careful of them. And let nothing be done without thy will, neither 
do thou anything apart from' the will of God; nor indeed doest thou. 
Stand well. Let there be frequent assemblies. Ask every man by 
his name. Despise not slaves and handmaids. But neither let them 
despise; but let them serve the more, as for the glory of God, 
that they may be accounted worthy of the excellent freedom which 
is of God. Let them not desire to be set free out of the common 
[property], that they may not be found the slaves of lusts. Flee 
from evil arts; but rather discourse respecting them. Bid my sisters 
that they love in the Lord, and that their husbands* be sufficient 
for them in flesh and in spirit. And again, charge my brethren, 
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that they love their wives as 
our Lord His Church. If any one be able by strength to continue 
in chastity to the honour of the body of our Lord, let him continue 
without boasting ; if he boast, he is lost ; if he become known apart 
from the bishop, he has corrupted himself But^ it is becoming,

the bishop, that the marriage may be in our Lord, and not in lust. 
But let every thing be for the honour of God. Look ye to the bishop, 
that God also may look to you. I will be instead of the souls of 
those who are subject to the bishop and the presbyters and the dea- 
cons ; with them may I have a portion with God. Labour together 
with one another; make the struggle together, run together, suffer 
together, sleep together^ rise together. As stewards of God, and 
His domestics and ministers, please Him and serve Him, from whom 
ye will receive wages [or that ye may receive wages from Him). Let 
none of you rebel. Let your baptism be to you as armour, and faith 
as a helmet, and love as a spear, and patience as a panoply. Let your 
treasures be your good works, that ye may receive the gift of God, as 
is just. Be ye long-suffering towards each other in gentleness, as God 
towards you. I rejoice in you at all times. The Christian has not 
power over himself, but is ready to be subject to God. I salute him 
who is accounted worthy to go to Antioch in my stead, as I charged 
thee *.

The Second Epistle, to the Ephesiatis^. 

IGNATIUS, who is Theophorus, to the church which is blessed in 
the greatness of God the Father, and perfected; to her who was set 
apart from eternity to be at all times for abiding and unchangeable 
glory, and is perfected and chosen in the token of truth*, by the 
will of the Father of Jesus Christ our God ; to her who is worthy of 
happiness; to her who is at Ephesus in Jesus Christ in joy unblameable; 
much greeting. 

Forasmuch as your well-beloved name is acceptable to me in 
God, which ye have acquired by nature by a right and just will, *by 
faith and by love of Jesus Christ our Saviour, and ye are imitators 
of God, and have been fervent ^ in the blood of God, and have speedily 
accomplished a work congenial to you ; for* when ye heard that I was

bound [so as to be hindered] from acting ' for the sake of the common 
name and hope, and I hope through your prayers to be devoured of 
beasts at Rome, that by means of this, whereof I am accounted worthy, 
I may be endued with strength to be a disciple of God, ye were 
dihgent to come and see me. But forasmuch as we have received 
your multitude in the name of God by Onesimus, who is your bishop 
in love unutterable, whom I pray in Jesus Christ our Lord that ye 
may love, and that ye all may be in his likeness ; for blessed is He 
who hath given you such a bishop, as ye deserve. But forasmuch as 
love suffereth me not to be silent respecting (from) you, on this account 
I have been forward to entreat you to be diligent in the will of God ; 
for when no one lust is implanted in you which is able to torment you, 
lo, ye live in God. I rejoice in you, and I offer supplication on account 
of you Ephesians, a church renowned in all ages. For those who are 
carnal are not able to do spiritual things, neither the spiritual carnal 
things ; just as neither faith [can do] those things which are foreign to 
faith, nor lack of faith [those things which are] of faith. For those 
things which ye have done in the flesh, even they are spiritual, because 
ye have done every thing in Jesus Christ. And ye are prepared for the 
building of God the Father, and ye are raised up on high by the engine 
of Jesus Christ, which is the Cross, and ye^ are drawn by the rope, which 
is the Holy Spirit; and that which hoisteth you up^ is your faith, and 
your love is the way that leadeth up on high to God. Pray for all 
men, for there is hope of repentance for them, that they may be 
accounted worthy of God. From your works especially let them be 
instructed. Against their harsh words be ye conciliatory in meekness 
of mind and in gentleness; against their blasphemies do ye pray; and 
against their error arm ye yourselves with faith; and against their 
fierceness be ye peaceful and quiet ; and be ye not astounded at them. 
But let us be imitators of our Lord in meekness, and of whosoever 
Shall more especially be injured and oppressed and defrauded. The 
work is not of promise, but that a man be found in the strength of 
faith even to the end. It is better that a man be silent when he is 
something, than that he should be speaking when he is not; that 
through those things which he speaks, he may act, and through 
those things in which he is silent, he may be known. My spirit

boweth down to the Cross, which is a stumbling-block to those who 
do not believe, but to you for salvation and life eternal. There was 
concealed from the ruler of this world the virginity of Mary, and her 
child-bearing*, and the death^ of our Lord, and {or even) the three 
mysteries of shouting, which were wrought in the quiet of God from 
[the time of] the star even till now. At the manifestation of the Son 
magic began to cease, and all bonds were loosed, and the ancient 
kingdom and the error of evil was destroyed. Henceforward all things 
were moved together, and the destruction of death was devised, and 
there was the commencement of that which is perfected in God. 
[Here] ends the Second Epistle^ 


77ie Third Epistle, to the Romans*. 

IGNATIUS, who is Theophorus, to the church which has found 
compassion in the greatness of the Father Most High ; to her who 
presideth in the place of the country of the Romans ; who is worthy 
of God, and worthy of life and blessings and praise and remembrance, 
and is worthy of prosperity, and presideth in love, and is perfected 
in the law of Christ unblameable {or unblameably) ; much greeting. 
From of old I have prayed to God that I might be accounted 
worthy to behold your faces, which are worthy of God; but now, 
being bound in Jesus Christ, I hope to receive you and salute you, 
if it be the Will that I should be accounted worthy to the end. For 
the beginning is well disposed^ if I be accounted worthy to attain 
to the end, that I may receive my portion without hindrance amid 
suffering. For I am afraid of your love, lest it should injure me. 
But for you it is easy to do what you wish ; but for me it is diffi- 
cult to be accounted worthy of God, if indeed [yap] ye spare me 
not. For there is no other time for me like this, that I should be 
accounted worthy of God; neither will ye, if ye be silent, be found 
in a better work than this. If ye leave me, I shall be a word of

God ; but if ye love my flesh, I become again a voice. Ye will not 
give me anything better than this, that I should be sacrificed to 
God while the altar is ready; that ye may be with one concord in 
love, and may praise God the Father in Jesus Christ our Lord, 
because He has accounted the bishop of Syria' worthy to be 
God's, after He has called him from the East to the West. It is good 
for me * that I should set from the world in God, that I may rise 
in Him in life. Ye have never envied any one. Ye have taught 
others. Only pray for strength to be given to me from within and 
from without, that I may not only speak, but also desire; and not 
that I may be called a Christian only, but also that I may be found 
to be [one]: for if I am found to be [one], I am also able to be 
called [so]. Then shall I be faithful, when I am not seen in the 
world. For there is nothing which is seen that is good. The 
work is not [a matter] of persuasion, but Christianity is great when 
the world hateth it. I write to all the churches, and declare to all 
men that I die willingly for God, if it be that ye hinder me not. I 
intreat you, be not [affected] towards me with love that is unseasonable. 
Leave me to be [the prey] of the beasts, that through them I may 
be accounted worthy of God. I am the wheat of God, and by the 
teeth of the beasts I am ground, that I may be found the pure 
bread of God. With provoking provoke ye the beasts, that they 
may be a grave for me, and may leave nothing of my body, that even 
when I am fallen asleep, I may not be a burden upon any one. Then 
am I in truth a disciple of Jesus Christ, when the world seeth 
not even my body. Intreat our Lord for me, that through these 
instruments I may be found a sacrifice to God. I do not charge you 
like Peter and Paul, who are Apostles, but I am one condemned: 
^they are free, but I am a slave even until now. But if I suffer, 
I am a freedman of Jesus Christ, and I shall rise in Him from 
the dead free. And now, being bound, I learn to desire nothing. 
From Syria, and even to Rome*, I am cast among beasts, by sea 
and by land, by night and by day, being bound between ten leopards, 
which are the band of soldiers, who, even while I do good to them, 
do evil the more to me. But I am the more instructed by their 
injury, but not on this account am I justified to myself I rejoice in 
the beasts that are prepared for me, and I pray that they may be speedily

found for me ; and I will provoke them to devour me speedily, and 
not as that which is afraid of some other men and does not approach 
them. Even should they not be wiUing to approach me, I will go 
with violence against them. Know me from myself; what is expedient 
for me. Let nothing envy me of things that are seen and that are not 
seen, that I should be accounted worthy of Jesus Christ *. Let fire, 
and the cross, and the beasts that are prepared, cutting off of limbs, 
and scattering of bones, and crushing of the whole body, hard tor- 
ments of the devil, come upon me ; and only let me be accounted 
worthy of Jesus Christ. The pains of birth are standing over me : 
and my love is the Cross ^ and there is not in me fire of^ any other 
love. I do not desire the food of corruption, neither the lusts of 
this world. The bread of God I seek, which is the flesh of Jesus 
Christ, and his blood I seek [as] a drink, which is love incorruptible. 
My spirit saluteth you, and the love of the churches which received 
me as the name of Jesus Christ; for even those who were not* 
near to the way in the flesh preceded me in every city. Now I am 
about to arrive {or near, so that I shall arrive)* at Rome. I 
know many things in God, but I moderate myself, that I may not 
perish through boasting; for now it behoveth me to fear the more, 
and not to regard those who puff me up. For they who say to me 
such things, scourge me ; for I love to suffer, but I do not know if 
I am worthy. For to many zeal is not seen, but with me it has war. 
I have need therefore of gentleness, by which the ruler of this world 
is destroyed. I am able to write to you heavenly things ; but I fear 
lest I should do you an injury. Know me from myself; for I am 
cautious, lest ye should not be able to suffice [for them], and should 
be perplexed. For even I, not because I am bound, and am able 
to know heavenly things, and the places of the angels, and the station 
of the powers that are seen and that are not seen, on this account am I 
a disciple; for I am far short of the perfection which is worthy of God. 
Be ye perfectly strong in the patience of Jesus Christ our God.

3. TEXT AND NOTES; p. 135. 





HTHE THIRTEEN Ignatian Epistles which form the Long Recension 
and which emanated, as we have seen, from a forger writing in 
the name of the saint in the latter half of the fourth century, are 
given in the following pages in the order in which they occur in the 
Greek manuscripts of this Recension 3 viz. 




Mary to Ignatius. 
Ignatius to Alary. 









Ph iladelphians. 





These epistles fall into five classes according to their real or feigned 
chronology. Of these classes the first, fourth, and fifth are forgeries 
throughout, while the second and third are interpolated from the 
genuine epistles. 


(i) First Class, comprising two forged letters supposed to have 
been written while the saint was still at Antioch ; 

Mary to Ignatius. 
Ignatius to Mary. 

(ii) Second Class, the four letters actually written by the saint 
from Smyrna, with interpolations and alterations : 


(iii) Third Class, the three letters actually written by the saint 
from Troas, with interpolations and alterations as in the class imme- 
diately preceding ; 




(iv) Fourth Class, three forged letters supposed to have been written 
from Philippi ; 




(v) Fifth Class, a. single forged letter supposed to have been 
written after the saint had reached the shores of Italy ; 



The authorities for the text of these epistles are not the same 
throughout. This difference is due partly to the imperfection of some 
MSS at the beginning or end, but still more to the fact that the forged 
(as distinguished from the iiiterpolated) epistles were also attached 
to the genuine letters of Ignatius. Hence the same authorities, which 
contain the genuine letters, for the most part contain the forged letters 
also ; whereas the interpolated letters are only preserved in the authori- 
ties for the Long Recension. 

The authorities are as follows : 

I. Greek Manuscripts. 

(i) G, containing the forged epistles ; but this MS is muti- 
lated and ends abruptly Tars. 7 areTrt'o-raroi ydp doiv tou 


KL-, SO that it only gives the first two and the beginning 
of the third; see above, i. p. 73 sq. 

(2) g, the epistles of the Long Recension. 

The several mss are 

g, {Monacejisis or Augusfanus), mutilated at the begin- 
ning and commencing with Mar. Ign. 2 -vdaKaXov 8e 
K.T.X. ; see above, i. p. 102. 

g ( Vatkantis), mutilated at the beginning and com- 
mencing with Trail. 4 oZv -n-paoTrjTos k.t.X. ; see 
I. p. 103. 

gg {Nydpruccianus)., omitting the Epistle of Mary to 
Ignatius, but containing the other twelve letters 
whole. This MS is only known through the edition 
of Gesner; see i. p. log. 

g^ {Constantinopolitamis\ containing all the thirteen 
epistles ; see i. p. no. 

g^ {Vatic. -Reg.), containing nearly the whole of the 
Epistle to the Ephesians ; see i. p. in. 

2. Latin Versions. 

L, containing all the forged epistles except Philippians ; see 

I. p. 80, III. p. 5 sq. 
1, omitting the letter of Mary to Ignatius, but containing the 

other twelve (the letter to Polycarp wanting the latter half) ; 

see I. p. 117. 

3. Armenian Version. 

A, containing all the forged epistles ; see i. p. 84. 

4. Coptic Version. 

C, containing (in its present mutilated state) only the end of 
the letter to Hero ; see i. p. loi, in. p. 277. 

It will thus be seen that the authorities for the several parts are as 
follows : 

( 1 ) Mary to Ignatius ; 

G, g (g, mutilated, gj, L, A. 

(2) Ignatius to Mary, Tarsians, Antiochenes ; 

G (ending Tars. 7), g (g,, g3, g g, beginning in Tars. 4), 
L, 1, A. 

(3) Philippians ; 

vSi 1 Ss' 3' J' ' ^' 
IGN. III. 9 



(4) Hero ; 

g (gu g2' gs' gJ' L, 1, A, C (a fragment). 

(5) TralUmis, Magnesians, Philadelphians, Sinyrnaans, Poly carp, 

Ephesians, Romans; 
g (gi g2 g3 g4' gs fo^ Ephesians only), 1. 
As the letters of this last group are founded on the text of the 
genuine Ignatius by interpolations and alterations, this latter is very 
frequently available as an authority. It is designated I in the critical 

The above authorities fall into four classes. 

(i) g 1, which are closely connected. The respective values of the 
Greek mss (g^, g^, gg, g^, g^) have been already discussed, and the rela- 
tion of the Latin Version (1). to the Greek Text has also been con- 
sidered (i. p. 102 sq.). Here it is sufficient to say that of the Greek 
MSS gj is the best, and that the Latin Version (though loose and full of 
blunders) was made from an older Greek text than any contained in 
extant mss. 

(ii) G L, which again are closely connected. On the whole this 
type of text is less trustworthy than the former, but it often gives the 
correct readings where the other is corrupt. The relation of L to G has 
been investigated already. 

(iii) A, an independent authority, which preserves a very ancient 
form of the text, where this can be discerned through the distortions of 
a secondary translation and the corruptions of successive transmission. 

(iv) C, a mere fragment, but highly valuable as far as it goes. 

The history of the printed text of the Long Recension in the original 
Greek commences with the publication of two editions, nearly simulta- 
neous in time but independent of each other ^; 

^ Funk {Die drei ersten GfiecMschen 
Atisgaben, etc., in Thcolog. Quartalschr. 
LXI. p. 610 sq, 1879; see also Patr. 
Apost. II. p. XXX sq) endeavours to 
prove that Gesner's edition was derived 
entirely from the Codex Augustanns [gj], 
so that gg has no independent value what- 
ever. He bases his conclusion on the 
coincidences between the readings of gj 

and gg. But, when these coincidences are 
examined, they are found to consist al- 
most entirely (i) of readings which must be 
pronounced certainly or most probably 
correct, (2) of readings which gj gg share 
with other authorities. Thus they do not 
at all substantiate his inference. One 
special coincidence however is brought 
forward, which deserves more considera- 



(i) The one by Valentinus Paceus (Hartung Frid) at Dillingen in 
1557 ; taken from the Augsburg (now Munich) ms, designated g in the 
present edition, 

(2) The other by Andrew Gesner at Ziirich in a volume of 
miscellaneous Greek patristic works. The title-page of Ignatius is dated 
1559. The Ignatian Epistles were taken from a ms belonging to Caspar 
von Nydprugck, designated gg in the present edition. 

Neither of these two editions contains the letter of Mary to 

tion. In Philipp. 7 gg reads vbi).ov for 
vbixoiv and just below eyhvrjrov for 0.7^^- 
vrjTov, both which readings appear in the 
ed. princ. of Valentinus Paceus. If this 
coincidence be not accidental, then Ges- 
ner's edition must have been derived not 
from the Codex Augu'stanus [gj] itself 
(for both words are correctly written 
there) but from an incorrect transcript 
made for the ed. princ. or from the 
sheets of the ed. princ. itself. This 
hypothesis however is beset with diffi- 

(i) In the first place Gesner states ex- 
plicitly that his was the earliest edition in 
the original Greek. Funk indeed believes 
that the words 'ea quae hactenus cir- 
cumferebantur' refer only to the Micro- 
presbyticum, a work which has been men- 
tioned just before by Gesner and which 
gave the Latin of the Ignatian Epistles ; 
but the expression is quite comprehen- 
sive and could not have been used, if the 
editor had known of any previous Greek 
edition whatever. (2) In the second 
place, as Nydprugck died in September 
1557 (see Funk, p. 622), and the edition 
of Paceus is dated November or De- 
cember (ii.y\vl fiaifj-aKT-qpLoivi) of the same 
year, it is difficult to see how the tran- 
script supposed to have been used for 
this edition can have belonged to the 
library of Nydprugck. The hypothesis 
that the sheets of the ed. princ. itself were 
used by Gesner is precluded by the fact 
that he speaks of a manuscript. (3) 
Lastly ; several phenomena in the edition 
of Gesner are highly difficult to explain, 

if g3 were altogether dependent on gj. 
Thus in the very same chapter from which 
Funk takes his example, Philipp. 7, gj 
has oi)5' 1x7^00; 5Lo86^ri /cat Sldvfxa ^evveis, 
while gg gives ov8' aypoui ore 8id Xo^a Kal 
8'i.dvfia /3aiVets. Partly from authorities 
since discovered we now know that the 
correct reading is ov5' ayvod on 8ia\o^a 
Kal Si8ufj.a /SatVets. Is it conceivable 
that gg by mere conjecture could have 
arrived so nearly at the correct reading, 
even with the aid of the Latin ' neque 
ignoro quoniam curve et lubrice incedis,' 
more especially as g^ omits otl7 Again 
in Ig-n. Mar. 3 the reading of gg Trfv 
(sic) (Lv8po'lv is obviously an error for row 
a.v8polv the correct reading; but gj has 
TOis av8po'iv. Similar phenomena are 

For these reasons I am constrained to 
believe that the coincidence of g^gg in 
the reading iyivv-qrov in Philipp. 7 is 
purely accidental. And the probability 
of such an accidental coincidence be- 
comes the greater when we examine 
the phenomena of Gesner's edition [g.] 
elsewhere. I have noticed two other in- 
stances where it erroneously substitutes an 
e for an a in the first syllable of ayivvrjTos, 
Magn. 7 eyevvr)Tov (p. 13), Philad. 4 
iyhvr\To% (p. 29); and indeed, so far as 
my observation has gone, the word is as 
often incorrectly spelt as correctly. We 
have elsewhere instances of the converse 
error, e.g. Magn. 10 axp'ni'-a.TKyav (sic) 
for expfii'-'i.TKyoLV. Thus Funk's main ex- 
ample proves nothing. 



Ignatius, though the ms from which the former was taken preserves the 
greater part of it. 

All the later editions of the Ignatian Epistles till the time of Ussher 
were founded, so far as I have observed, exclusively on the work of 
Paceus. The edition of Gesner seems to have been unknown to or 
ignored by later editors. 

The earliest of these subsequent editions, founded on the work of 
Paceus, was that of Guil. Morel (Paris, 1558), which he followed up by 
a second edition a few years later (Paris, 1562). Morel was an excellent 
scholar and corrected numerous errors of the editio princeps, but at the 
same time he introduced some conjectural emendations of his own, which 
were devoid of ms authority at the time and have not been confirmed 
by subsequent discovery. From this time till the appearance of Ussher's 
work (a.d. 1644) the text remained much as Morel had left it. The 
most important editions in the interval were those of Vairlenius Sylvius 
'ex ofificina Chr. Plantini' (Antwerp, 1572, 1573); of MartiaHs Mestrseus 
(Paris, 1608); and of Vedelius (Geneva, 1623). These editors however 
contributed little of their own to the improvement of the text. They 
neither consulted any new manuscript authority nor made any fresh 
collation of the old. Thus the text for nearly a century was based on 
the single Augsburg ms as inaccurately represented by the editio princeps, 
supplemented by the conjectures of Morel. 

The edition of Ussher (1644), followed by that of Voss (1646), and 
soon afterwards by his own Appendix Ignatiana (1647), marks an 
epoch in the textual criticism of the Ignatian letters. Ussher not only 
restored the seven epistles of the original Ignatius by means of the 
Latin Version, but he also rendered important service to the text of the 
forged and interpolated epistles. In his earlier work (1644) he made 
use of Gesner's edition which had hitherto lain unnoticed, besides 
giving various readings of the Latin Version from three mss, Magdal. 78, 
Balliol. 229, and Petav. He also gave there for the first time the 
letter of Mary of Cassobola to Ignatius in Latin from his two mss 
[Lj, LJ, and at the same time he added the conclusion of the same in 
the original Greek beginning with 5 oi; yap StSao-Kovo-a ere k.t.\. This 
letter he found in an extract from the Augsburg ms given in Catal. Cod. 
in Bihl. Reip. Aug. Vind. p. 22 (1595). Voss (1646) for the first time 
published the whole of the letter of Mary in the original from the 
Medicean ms, Laur. Ivii. 7, giving at the same time the text of the 
spurious and interpolated letters ascribed to Ignatius, and making use 
of this same ms (as far as it goes) for his text. In his Appendix 
Ignatiana (1647) Ussher, while annotating the spurious epistles, added 


readings from Laur. vii. 21, which he calls Florentimis. Somewhat 
later Cotelier in his edition of the Patres Apostolici (1672) gave various 
readings from Paris. Suppl. Graec. 341 ('Claudii lolii'), and these 
readings were copied by Whiston (171 1), by whom, for reasons which I 
have explained in my general introduction (i. p. 107), it is called Codex 
Thuaneus. Whiston also added for the first time readings from the 
worthless Codex Leicestrensis {Bodl. And. d. Inf 2. 19). With this sole 
exception, nothing was done from Cotelier's time onwards towards col- 
lating Mss of the pseudo-Ignatian letters until Dressel's edition of the 
Patres Apostolici (1S57). Dressel (besides giving many various readings 
from Laiir. vii. 21) collated the three Greek mss. Vatic. 859 [g], Ottob. 
348, Barber. 68, as well as the fragment in Vatic. Reg. 30, and the two 
Latin mss, Palat. 150, Regin. 81. Of his Greek mss. Vatic. 859 alone 
has any independent value, but it is important. Meanwhile the publi- 
cation of the Armenian Version by Petermann (1849) had furnished 
an altogether new and important witness for the text of the six spurious 
epistles ; but it was wholly neglected by Dressel. As a collector of 
materials, Dressel deserves our gratitude ; but he omitted to take 
account of some authorities, while he was unable to estimate the 
relative weight of others, so that his actual text has no great value. 
Zahn (1876) was the first recent editor who made anything like an 
adequate use of the available materials. He has been followed by 
Funk (1881), who with improved materials has produced an improved 

In the following pages I have not thought it necessary to reproduce 
the old Latin translation [1], being content to take its readings from 
others. For the Greek text I collated g^ anew for my first edition. It 
had been known previously only through the very inaccurate editio 
princeps. An independent collation was also made by Funk, whose 
edition appeared before my own, though the sheets of my work had 
been passed through the press long before. For the readings of g^ 
I have gone to Dressel, and for those of gg to Gesner's edition itself 
The readings of g^ I owe to the kindness of Bryennios, who furnished 
me with a collation. He performed this same kind service also to 
Funk'. The readings of the Coptic fragment [CJ of Hero were used 
for the first time in my first edition. The readings of the Anglo-Latin

signed to g4 by Funk differ from my own. ceptions I find that I have accurately 
Not having access to the MS itself, I have represented this collation. The excep- 
again consulted the collation of Bryennios tions are corrected in this edition. 


Version [L] for the six spurious epistles are of course taken from my 
own printed text of this version (see above, p. 42 sq.). The Armenian 
readings [A] are derived from Petermann.

iTNATiooi M&pi<\] This correspond-

supposed to take place while the

Mary writes, asking him to send 
officers to preside over her native 
Church, which is still in its infancy 
and not yet organized. 

In his reply {ad Mar. 4) Ignatius 
speaks of the good report which he 
heard of her ' while she was still in 
Rome with the blessed Pope Anencle- 
tus.' On this account it has been 
held by many, alike of those who 
have accepted the letter as genuine 
(e.g. Vairlen, Halloix) and of those 
who condemn it as spurious (e.g. 
Zahn), that she is intended for the 
same person whom S. Paul salutes,

This seems probable ; and if so, the 
historical situation is not ill-con- 
ceived. This Mary is represented as 
a native of a Cilician town not very 
far from Tarsus, while the Mary of 

Rom. xvi. 6 was evidently well known 
to S. Paul before she went to reside 
in Rome. For the epithet xp'-o'Tocpopa 
bestowed on her and the consequen- 
ces which have flowed from it, see 
the note on ad Mar. inscr. 

GK ka.ccoBoA6on] Zahn is justi- 
fied in assuming that this formed 
part of the original title of the letter 
as it issued from the hands of the 
Ignatian writer, and was not an ad- 
dition of some later scribe. It ap- 
pears in all the authorities, though 
with additions and minor variations 
of spelling. Moreover the designation 
' Maria Cassobolita,' which appears 
in some copies in the title to Ignatius' 
reply (though no part of the original 
heading), can only be explained on 
this hypothesis ; for there is nothing 
in the body of the letters to suggest 
that she belonged to Cassobela or 

Inasmuch as no place Cassobela or 
Cassobola is mentioned elsewhere, 
critics have busied themselves in 
emending the name. The correction

general favour. Castabala, a town 
of some note (see Strabo xii. pp. 535, 
537), was not very far from Anazar- 
bus. They are mentioned together 
by Pliny A^. //. v. 22, quoted below 
on I rfjs npos t(3 Zap/3(u ; and in 
Hierocl. Synecd. p. 706 (Wesseling) 
Castabala is named among the towns 
in Cilicia Secunda, of which Anazar- 
bus is the metropolis ; comp. Notit. 
Episc. p. 84 (ed. Parthey), Ptol.v. 8. 7. 
Theophilus, a bishop of Castabala, 
has a place in history about the time 
when these Ignatian Epistles were 
probably written (Socr. H. E. iii. 25, 
Soz. H. E. iv. 24) ; and at an earlier 
date one Moses, bishop of this see, 
appears at the Council of Nicsea 
(Cowper Syrian Miscellanies pp. 10, 
27, 32). Thus the conjecture has 
much to recommend it. Neverthe- 
less the coincidence of all our divers 
authorities here, which exhibit no 
variation in the consonants (for the 
Armenian, being derived through 
the Syriac, represents kc[c]BA[oo]n), 
is fatal to it ; and the same may be 
said of its occurrence in i, notwith- 
standing the corruption in GL. The 
only question therefore remaining is 
the alternative between Kacrao^oXuiv 
and Kaa-a-o^rfkcdv. The weight of au- 
thority (g in both places ; L here ; C 
in the heading of Ign. Mar. ; A in 
both places, for the long vowel rj 

would probably have been repre- 
sented in the Syriac and conse- 
quently preserved in the Armenian ; 
all these against G here and GL in 
i) is decidedly in favour of Kaa-ao- 
^oKu>v, whereas the analogy of Ar- 
bela, Gaugamela, etc., might suggest 
Kacra-ol3r]\u>v. Voss would read Kara- 
/SoXwj/, supposing it to be the place 
mentioned in the Itineraries ; Cata- 
bolo Afitonin., Peuting., Catavolo 
Hierosol. (where the MS has Catavo- 
lomis, but the -mis is evidently a 
repetition of the following mil., as 
Wesseling saw, and Parthey corrects 
the text accordingly). It appears 
to be a very general opinion (e.g. 
Leake Asia Minor p. 218, Ritter 
Erdkunde vill. ii. 3, p. 1835 sq) that 
the place mentioned in the Itinera- 
ries is the same as Castabala. This 
seems very questionable. The forms 
in all the Itineraries represent the 
Greek /cara/3oXw, and Kara^oko'i means 
a place for discharging {KUTa^aXXeiv) 
merchandise (Schol. on Thuc. i. 30 ; 
comp. Etyni. Magn. p. 336 s. v. e/x- 
Tvopo^). Thus it corresponds to the 
English 'Wharf or the Italian ' Sca- 
ricatojo,' both which are used as 
proper names. It would seem there- 
fore to have been some small station 
on the route, perhaps not a town at 
all. On the other hand the Cilician 
city is almost universally written

however (iii. 17. 5) the MSS have 'ad 
oppidum Castabulum ' (or ' Castabo- 
lum'). Our Cassobola or Cassobela 
appears to have been different from 
either. In the absence of all evi- 
dence we may conjecture that it was 
a small town or hamlet in the imme- 
diate neighbourhood of Anazarbus, 
as the notice in i suggests. The 
writer of these epistles himself pro- 
bably resided in Syria or Cilicia, and 
was generally acquainted with the 
topography of those parts.

Embellished with a classical termi-

Ammias, Ammianus, Tatias, Tatia-

Maris is called Marinus, both here 
and in Hero 9. The name is com- 
mon in these parts. One Marinus of 
Anazarbus was martyred under Dio- 
cletian. His day is given as Aug. 4 
(BoUand, Aci. Sanct. Augustus 11. p. 
346 sq). This may be the same 
Marinus who is commemorated on 
Aug. 1 2 in the old Carthaginian Calen- 
dar, and on Aug. 22 and 24 in the 
Hieronymian and ancient Syriac 
Martyrologies respectively. At the 
Council of Nicaea the bishops of 
Sebastene in Palestine and of Pal- 
myra in Phoenicia both bear the 
name Marinus ; and Maris of Chal- 
cedon, who was also present, held a 
prominent place in the Arian con- 
troversy. Eusebius also dedicated 
one of his works to a person of this 
name, Quaestioncs ad Marinum. 
For the name in Greek Christian 
inscriptions see Boeckh C. I. 9238, 
9837. We meet with more than one 
Marinus of Neapolis in history (Fa- 
bric. Bibl. Grace, viil. p. 464; comp.

Neas TToXecBs] '' Newtown.^ Zahn 
(/. 7/. w<4. p. 155) objects to treating 
this as a proper name, on the ground 
that no city Neapolis in this neigh- 
bourhood is mentioned by any geo- 
grapher. But whatever the difficulty 
may be, we have no choice open to 
us. He very fairly argues that the 
heading of Ignatius' letter in reply 
to Mary, as given in G, eh NeaTroXti/ 
rr^v npos tS Zap/3a) has no authority. 
But the expression in Hero 9 eV Neano- 
Xei Tj] npos Zap^a [v. 1. ' Ava^ap^oi] is 
decisive ; for, if vea. were intended 
for a mere epithet, we should require 
the definite article iv ttj vea TroXei, and 
indeed Zahn himself prints it there 
with a capital letter, ev NeanoXei. 
On the other hand the passage before 
us is inconclusive in itself; for in 
this and similar proper names the 
first word is frequently declined (e.g. 
'lepas TToXecos, MeyaX?;? TroXews). Zahn 
indeed says that this practice is only 
found in ' much older writers ' ; but 
the signatures to the decrees of the 
Councils show that it was common 
in the 4th and 5th century; e.g. 
Neas TToXfcos at Constantinople (Cow- 
per Syr. Miscell. p. 36), IlaXataj 
TrdXems at Chalcedon (Labb. Co7ic. 
IV. 1492, ed. Colet.). 

Tr]s TTpbs Tw Zap^a] 'on the river 
Zarbus^ as it is rendered by the Ar- 
menian translator in Hero 9, and as 
the masculine article suggests. The 

reading is clearly Zap^w both here 
and in Hero 9, since in both places 
g stands alone against all the other 
authorities in substituting 'Aj/afap/So). 
This substitution would naturally oc- 
cur to a scribe who was familiar with 
the name of the city but unacquainted 
with the name of the stream. Pro- 
perly speaking the city was ^Ava^ap^os 
or (more correctly) 'Ava^ap^a, while 
the name of the stream or springs 
about which it lay was Zap^os or Zap- 
/3a. The Arabic name of the place 
is Ain-Zarba (Ritter Erdkmide vofi 
Asieii IX. 2. p. 58 sq), and in Syriac 
it is frequently written --^^:^ ^^ 
'the springs of Darbi' (Assemani 
Bibl. Orient. ll. Diss, de Monoph. 
s. V. Anasarba) ; though elsewhere, 
especially in translations from the 
Greek (see Wright's Catalogue of 
Syriac MSS in the British Museu?n 

PP- 559, 560, 829), it is rdrj-ixrdJr^ 

or rtliaiv^K', Anazarba or An- 

zarba. The Arabic and Syriac forms 
seem to point to the derivation of the 
name, which was doubtless in any 
case of Oriental origin, and explain 
the expression ivpos rS ZapjSa here. 
The name Zarbis appears also as the 
designation of a tributary of the 
Tigris (Plin. N. H. vi. 30) now called 
Zarb or Zab (Ritter Erdkunde vi. 2. 
p. 521). The main river of the lo- 
cality with which we are concerned 
was the Pyramus, but this ZapjSds 
seems to have been some minor 
stream. No credit is due to the 
myths which make Zarbus or Ana- 
zarbus a man's name, the founder or 
the restorer of the city ; e. g. Amm. 
Marcell. xiv. 8. 3 'Anazarbus auctoris 
vocabulum referens,' Joann. Malal.

Byz., s. V. '' hva^ap^a, writes KitCkryrai 
OTTO Tov irpoKeLfievov bpovs t] ano Ava- 
C^p^a [v. 1. 'Ai/a^ap/Sov] tov KTiaav- 
Tos. His statement respecting the 
mountain is illustrated by coins of 
Anazarbus belonging to the age of 
the Antonines, which bear the inscrip- 
tion KAICApeCON . TOON . npOC . TW . 

ANAz&pBco (Mionnet ill. p. 551, 
Suppl. vii. p. 172 sq.; comp. Ptolem. 
V. 8 Y>.ai(Tapeia npos 'Ava^dp^co); while 
one, apparently belonging to the 
reign of Trajan, is inscribed KAic^p . 
yn . ANAZApB. (Mionnet Suppl. vii. 
p. 171; comp. Eckhel Doct. Num. 
in. p. 42). The expressions ' Cccsarea 
at' or 'under Anazarbus' would in- 
deed be satisfied if we were to suppose 
that the new city of Caesarea had 
been built on a lower site near the 
old Anazarbus. But the masculine 
article points to a mountain, since 
the name of the city is feminine, r\ 
'AvdCap^os (Anthol. III. p. 278 'Am- 
^ap^ov...Kv8aXLfir]s, Evagr. //. E. iv. 
8, Philostorg. H. E. iii. 1 5, etc). The 
word is differently accentuated, 'Ava- 
Caplios or 'Ava^ap^os. 

Anazarbus bore various names at 
different epochs. It was thrown 
down again and again by earth- 
quakes (Joann. Malal. Chron. pp. 
267, 418, Evagr. 1. c, Zonaras xiv. 5) ; 
and when rebuilt, it sometimes re- 
ceived a new designation. Thus 
after the second of these calamities 
under Julius Caesar it took the name 
Caesarea, by which it was known for 
some centuries. Malalas confuses 
it with another Cilician town, when 

he calls it Diocassarea, which name 
it never bore ; and Zahn again (/. v. 
A. p. 156) is wrong in calling it 
' Caesarea Augusta', for it is not so 
designated on the coins or elsewhere, 
while Augusta is mentioned as a dis- 
tinct place from Anazarbus in the lists 
of signatures at Chalcedon (Labb. 
Cone. IV. 1480, 1485, ed. Colet.; comp. 
Lequien Or. Christ. ll. p. 879, 887) 
and elsewhere ; so that Sillig and 
other editors of Pliny correctly punc- 
tuate between 'Caesarea' and 'Au- 
gusta' in the passage cited above. 
The third earthquake happened un- 
der Nerva (Joann. Malal. 1. c), and it 
is perhaps to this incident that the 
expression Neas TroXews is intended to 
refer (Zahn /. v. A. p. 156); though 
there is no evidence that it ever took 
the name Neapolis. In later Greek 
writers it is sometimes written 'Ava- 
^ap^os or 'Avd^ap^a (e. g. Nicet. Chon. 
p. 33, ed. Bonn. ; Notit. Episc. p. 84, 
ed. Parthey), whence the name Na- 
vcrsa by which it was known in the 
crusading times. 

Anazarbus was one of the princi- 
pal cities of Cilicia. Its favourite 
epithet on the coins is %vho^os (Mion- 
net III. p. 552 sq., Suppl. VII. p. 175 
sq). Procopius Hist. Arc. 18 (p. iii, 
ed. Bonn.) speaks of it as Tr]v eV Ki- 
Xi^tv enKpaveaTaTTjv ' Ava^ap^ov. Under 
Caracalla it became a 'metropolis' 
(Mionnet III. p. 552, St(ppl. vil. 
p. 173 sq ; comp. Hierocl. Synced. 
p. 705, with Wesseling's note). It 
continued to strike coins as late as 
Gallienus. It produced at least two 
men of some literary repute, Dios- 
corides the medical writer and Ascle- 
piades (or Asclepios) the historian, 
who among other works wrote an 
account of the antiquities of his 
native place (Trarpta 'Aj/a^ap/Sov, An- 
thol. III. p. 278 ; comp. Miiller Fragm. 
Hist. Grace. lii. p. 306). It had games 
which were visited by athletes from

at Ephesus Inscr. vi. 14, p. 62 (with 
the note). For its later history and 
for its geographical situation see 
Ritter Erdkutide ix. 2. p. 56 sq. 
The earliest bishop of Anazarbus, of 
whom any record is preserved, was 
Athanasius, whom Arius claimed as 
his supporter (Theodt. H. E. i. 4). 
Anazarbus was made the head of a 
separate province in the 5th century 
by Theodosius 11 (loann. Malal. 
Chron. p. 365, ed. Bonn.); and its 
prelates appear as metropolitans at 
Ephesus and Chalcedon. In 435 a 
synod met at Anazarbus to discuss 
matters relating to the Nestorian con- 
troversy (Labb. Coiic. IV. 523). 

EvXoyioi/] The name is not un- 
common in the conciliar lists. One 
Eulogius, bishop of Edessa, was pre- 
sent at Constantinople in A.D. 381 
(Cowper's Syr. Miscell. p. 36); and 
at Ephesus and Chalcedon the name 
appears several times. 

Kao-o-ojSoXcoi'] Zahn retains /cat 
So/SjjXof, but for many reasons this 
seems to me untenable. (i) The 
coincidence of gA is strong evidence 
against it. (2) No proper name 2o- 
^TjXos, so far as I have observed, is 
found elsewhere. (3) On the other 
hand Kaaa-o^^Xtov coincides with the 

title of the letter in G, and this coin- 
cidence would be very strange if it 
were purely accidental. (4) If we 
read koL 26^ij\ov, the context gives 
no account of this Sobelus, though 
the persons on either side of him, 
Maris and Eulogius, are both de- 
scribed. Zahn evidently feels this 
difficulty, for he writes ' vix me 
continui, quin proprio Marte scribe- 
rem npfa^vrepovs pro irpfcr^vTepov.^ 
(5) Ignatius in his reply to Mary 
( 3) speaks of ' the two men ' {roiv 
avbpolv) whose praises she had sound- 
ed, whereas this reading would make 
them three. Indeed Zahn seems to 
have been taken captive by an appa- 
rently apposite notice in Rell. Jur.

The three persons however who are 
mentioned in this ordinance are not 
intended themselves to be the clergy 
of the newly founded church, but only 
to choose the bishop (as Zahn him- 
self sees), and it is afterwards ordered

But, though the word is sometimes

Zahn's note here) ; but in this sense it 
would not apply to other heretics 
named in the context. It is probable 
therefore that the word is used with 
a different bearing. These heretics 
might be called 'men-worshippers', 
because, though they denied the 
divinity of Christ, they yet paid Him 
in some sense divine honours. On 
somewhat similar grounds the Catho- 
lics were called anthropolatrcE by the 
Apollinarians (Greg. "^a.!. Epist. loi, 
Op. II. p. 89; Poem. Dogm. 10, Op.

Alexandria {Strom, ii. p. 490, iii. p.

the charges to which his professed 
followers laid themselves open ; but 
Irenjeus {Hcer. i. 26. 3) and Hippo- 
lytus {Hcer. vii. 36) represent him as 
the true founder of the sect; see 
Galatians p. 297, note, ed. 5. These 
passages of the interpolated epistles 
are in the mind of Stephanus Goba- 
rus (Photius Bibl. 232), when he men- 
tions Ignatius among those writers

Voss is not explicit on the subject (p. 116), and Ussher, while giving Voss's text, 
supposes himself to be giving the reading of the MS. At least I cannot account for 
the statement in any other way. Voss himself must have got alueiade (p. 80) by 
conjecture or by misprint from Ussher's aidelade ; and Ussher's aWdade was founded

' sub-deacons ' are first mentioned in 
the middle of the third century, in 
the passage of Cornelius already 
quoted and in the contemporary 
letters of Cyprian. On the cause of 
the institution of this office see Phi- 
lippians p. 188 sq. The 'readers' 
occur as early as Tertullian de 
Praescr. 41 'hodie diaconus, qui eras 
lector,' where the language shows 
that this was already a firmly esta- 
blished order in the Church. Of the 
'singers' the notices in the Apos- 
tolical Constitutions are probably 
the most ancient. The 'door-keep- 
ers,' like the subdeacons, seem to be 
first mentioned in the letter of Cor- 
nelius. The KoniavTes first appear a 
full century later ; see the next note. 
The 'exorcists,' as we have seen, 
are mentioned as a distinct order 
by CorneHus, while in Apost. Const.

viii. 26 it is ordered that they shall 
not be ordained, because it is a spi- 
ritual function which comes direct 
from God and manifests itself by its 
results. The name and the function 
however appear much earlier in the 
Christian Church; e.g. Justin Mart. 
Apol. ii. 6 (p. 45). The forms lirop- 
KKTTrjs and f^opKia-rfjs are convertible ; 
e.g. Justin Mart. Bia/. 85 (p. 311)

K.T.X. The ' confessors ' hardly de- 
serve to be reckoned a distinct order, 
though accidentally they are men- 
tioned in proximity with the different 
grades of clergy in Apost. Const. 
viii. 12 already quoted. Perhaps the 
accidental connexion in this work 
has led to their confusion with the 
offices of the Christian ministry in 
our false Ignatius. In Apost. Cofist. 
viii. 23 biaTa( nepl 6p.oXoyT]Tav 
6p.oXoyrjTf]s ov xeipoTovelrai k.t.X., they 
are treated in much the same way as 
the exorcists, being regarded as in 
some sense an order and yet not 
subject to ordination. Possibly how- 
ever the word ofJLoXoyTjTai has here a 
different sense, ''chanters^ as the 
corresponding Latin ' co7ifessores ' 
seems sometimes to have, e.g. in the 
Sacramentary of Gregory ' Oremus 
et pro omnibus episcopis, presbyteris, 
diaconibus, acolythis, exorcistis, lec- 
toribus, ostiariis, confessoribus, vir- 
ginibus, viduis, et pro omni populo 
sancto Dei ' ; see Ducange Gloss. 


Lat. s. V. (11. p. 530, Henschel). 

12. Tovs KOTTiaivTai] '' the labourers^ 
i.e. ''grave-diggers'' or ^ sextons.^ In 
a law of the year 357 {Cod. Theod. 
xiii. i) mention is made of 'clerici 
qui copiatae appellantur,' and ano- 
ther law of the year 361 {Cod. Theod. 
xvi. 2. 15) runs 'clerici vero vel his 
quos copiatas recens usus instituit 
nuncupari' etc. From these passages 
it is clear that the name was not in 
use much before the middle of the 
fourth century, though the office 
under its Latin name ' fossores ' or 
' fossarii ' appears somewhat earlier. 
Even later Epiphanius {Expos. Fid. 
21) writes koI KOTnaral, ol to. (rdpara 
TTfpLaTeXXovTfs rdv K0ipaip,4v(itv, as if 
the word still needed some explana- 
tion. In accordance with these facts 
Zahn (/. V. A.p. 129) correctly argues 
with regard to our Ignatian writer, 
urging that on the one hand he would 
not have ascribed such language to 
Ignatius if the word had been quite 
recent, while on the other hand his 
using the participle {tovs KOTncovras) 
rather than the substantive indicates 
that it had not yet firmly established 
itself. For these ' copiatae ' see es- 
pecially de Rossi Roma Sotterranea

or a paraphrase of a.p.riv 77 x^P'-^- 
So again at the end of the Epistle to 
Polycarp, where ajirjv 77 x"P'^ stands 
now only in the interpolator's text, 
the Armenian Version of the origi- 
nal Ignatius has 'Gratia cum omni- 
bus vobis : Amen.' It is probable 
therefore that d/i?;!/- 7 x^P*-^ stood at 

the close of both these epistles in 
the original text, or in some early 
copies, of the genuine Ignatius. 
Transcribers would be sorely tempt- 
ed to omit or alter such an unusual 
expression. For the absolute use of 
Tj xop'f in Ignatius see Smym. 12 
with the note (ll. p. 321).

The Arabic text of these extracts has been edited by Mosinger [Si.ppl. 
Corp, Ignat. p. 13 sq.) from the MS Vatic. Arab. loi. He also gives various 
readings from other Vatican Mss. 

An Ethiopic translation from the Arabic is edited by Dillmann in 
Cureton's Corp. Ignat. p. 257 sq. It is somewhat amplified. 

The following text is taken from the Paris MS, Bibl. Nat. SuppUmcjit 
5], f. 12 b, here designated P. The notes give the principal variants of 
Mosinger's text (M). All the mss are very incorrect in point of grammar 
and diction. The Ethiopic translation is denoted by D. 

An English translation is appended.

The holy Ignatius, the Martyr, Patriarch of Antioch, being the second 
therein after Peter the chief of the Apostles^ says in his Epistle : 

GOD, the Creator of all natures, He it is that possesseth the 
ordering of nature, (being) the Trinity on Its throne; and He 
compriseth the universe {lit., the whole); and the fullness thereof {i.e., 
of the Trinity) was in the womb of the Virgin. But the unity of the 
Godhead (with Manhood) is that of which we speak here, that which is 
in the Son, and doth not belong to the (other) Persons. He is hung 
upon the Cross, and forgiveth sins ; He is in the grave, and raiseth up the 
dead; He cometh forth from the grave, and leaveth the clothes therein ; 
He went in to His disciples while the doors were shut, and gave them 
(the salutation of) peace. So the Father in the Son, and the Son in the 
Father, and the Holy Spirit, this is the Trinity, equal, indivisible, and 
immutable ; three Persons, one Godhead, one Lordship, one essence ; 
one power, one kingdom, one adoration, one glorification, one praise, is 
due to the Trinity; one glory, one counsel, one dominion, one might, 
one permanence, one thought, one will, belongeth to the Holy Trinity. 
The Father is Father, and not Son; and the Son is Son, and not 
Father; and the Holy Spirit is the Holy Spirit, and changeth not unto 
Fatherhood nor Sonship. This Trinity is perfect on the throne of glory, 
being bound together by the unity of the one Godhead, which is the 
one light that shineth from the Trinity and filleth all creation and giveth 
light upon that which is beneath the earth, as it is written : Behold I fill 
the heavens and the earth, and they that are in the depth of hell look upon 
my glory. But as for thee that sayest that the Godhead suffered and 
died, we believe that the Christ God suffered in body as a man, while 
he is impassible as God ; and that he tasted death in the body, while 
he is undying as God. Therefore, when thou hearest that God suffered 
for us, and that God the Word died on our behalf, understand that we 
join the Natures into a unity of Godhead and Manhood, and name 
them by this one name which beseemeth God, just as thou thyself art 
likewise (made up) of two natures, soul and body, and named by this 
one name which beseemeth man. And thy soul is immortal by nature, 
but thy soul is not Deity, yet is different from the body. And the 
honour which we desire to give unto our souls, namely that they die 
not, how dost thou not desire to give it to the one Godhead which is in 
the Trinity, that which is in the only (begotten) Son our Lord Jesus 

IGN. III. 20 


Christ ? Dost thou not know that, when thou sayest that the Godhead 
died, thou slayest the Trinity and the body of the Lord in the grave, 
and niakest it utterly like a dead body? because to the Trinity (be- 
longeth) one essence, which is the one Divinity. Where then now is 
He that conquered Death and led Hell captive? since thou niakest him 
like one that hath no power' along with the dead, and no motion. 
Nay more, thou mayest find others among the Theomachi, who think 
thus of the body which God framed for Him of the flesh and blood 
of the Virgin, as He knoweth (how) as a maker, that it was a body 
without a soul, and they say that the Godhead was its soul. Dost thou 
think then that the Godhead went out of it, and the body died 
altogether? Let them be put to shame now who thus speak this 
blasphemy, and let them hear the word of the Lord, Verily my sotil is 
sorrowful even unto death. For whom, O Lord? For the people that 

And this holy Ignatius, the Martyr, Patriarch of Antioch, says in his 

thirteenth Epistle : 

CHRIST was really born. He really grew up, He really ate and 
drank, He was really crucified. He really suffered and died and 
was buried and rose from the dead. Whosoever believeth this that it is 
so, is blessed ; and whosoever despiseth this, is a stranger to the blessed 
life, which we hope for. And they who divide the one Christ into two 
Natures after the union, shall be reckoned with the Jews, the murderers 
of God. These are they who said to Him with hypocrisy. We wish not 
to stone thee because of a good work, but because of blasphemy, because thou 
art a man a?id makest thyself a God. And thus shall they be equal unto 
these, I mean those who think that there is weakness in the Son of God, 
the Word, who are the holders of the two Natures (the Dyophysites).

The Latin Version of the 'Prayer of Hero,' which in the MSS is found 
appended to the Latin translation of the Ignatian Epistles in the Long 
Recension. It was first printed by Baronius (Ann. EccL sub ann. no) from 
a Vatican MS which Zahn (p. i()i) would identify with Palat. 150; but see 
Funk 11. p. xl sq. Ussher {Ign. et Polyc. Ep. p. 191) likewise printed it, 
making use (besides the edition of Baronius) of three MSS, Magd. 78, Ball. 
ii<), and Petav., from which also he gave various readings {Ign. et Polyc. 
Mart. p. 131 sq). Much later Dressel [Patr. Apost. p. xxi) edited it from 
Reg. 81 and Palat. 150. It has since been edited by Zahn, Funk, and 
Lagarde together with the Latin Epistles to which it is attached. I have 
only given the various readings where they are of interest. 


In this attempt at a restoration of the original, I have chiefly followed 
the Coptic Version (see il. p. 364 sq), which is printed at length above 
(p. 297) and is somewhat fuller than the Latin. At the same time I have 
sought assistance from the Latin, more especially in determining the form of 
the sentences.

THE Epistle of Polycarp was written in reply to a communication 
from the Philippians. They had invited him to address words of 
exhortation to them ( 3) ; they had requested him to forward by his own 
messenger the letter which they had addressed to the Syrian Church 
( 13); and they had asked him to send them any epistles of Ignatius 
which he might have in his hands {ib.). 

This epistle is intimately connected with the letters and martyr- 
dom of Ignatius himself. The Philippians had recently welcomed 
and escorted on their way certain saints who were in bonds (1). From 
a later notice in the epistle it appears that Ignatius was one of these 
{ 9). Two others besides are mentioned by name, Zosimus and 
Rufus {ib.). As these persons are not named elsewhere by any trust- 
worthy authority in connexion with the history of Ignatius, and as 
some such mention of them in the epistles of Ignatius himself would 
probably have been found if they had formed part of his company, 
when those epistles were written, it may be supposed that they joined 
him afterwards at Philippi. A not improbable conjecture makes them 
Bithynian Christians who had been sent by Pliny to Rome to be tried 
there (see the note on 9). In this case they would be placed under 
the same escort with Ignatius at Philippi, and proceed with him to 
Rome in the custody of the ' ten leopards ' (Ign. Rom. 5). It is 
clear that Ignatius probably by word of mouth had given to the 
Philippians the same injunction which he gave to the churches generally 
{Philad. 10, Smyrn. ii, Polyc. 7), that they should send letters, and 
(where possible) representatives also, to exhort the Church of Antioch 


and to congratulate it on the restoration of peace. Hence the request 
of the Philippians, seconded by Ignatius himself, that Polycarp would 
forward their letter to Syria. It is plain likewise, that they had heard, 
either from Ignatius himself or from those about him, of the epistles 
which he had addressed to the Churches of Asia Minor, more especially 
to Smyrna. Hence their further petition that Polycarp would send 
them such of these letters as were in his possession. The visit of 
Ignatius had been recent so recent indeed, that Polycarp, though he 
assumes that the saint has suffered martyrdom, is yet without any 
certain knowledge of the fact. He* therefore asks the Philippians, who 
are some stages nearer to Rome than Smyrna, to communicate to him 
any information which they may have received respecting the saint and 
his companions (see the notes on 13 'de ipso Ignatio,' etc.). 

Beyond these references to Ignatius there is not much of personal 
matter in the letter. Polycarp refers, as he could hardly help referring, 
to S. Paul's communications with the Philippians, both written and 
oral ( 3, 11). He mentions more especially the fame of the Philip- 
pian Church in the primitive days of the Gospel, and he congratulates 
them on sustaining their early reputation ( i, 11). Incidentally he 
states that the Philippians were converted to the Gospel before the 
Smyrn^ans ( 11) a statement which entirely accords with the notices 
of the two churches in the New Testament. 

The fair fame of the Philippian Church however had been sullied by 
the sin of one unworthy couple. Valens and his wife the Ananias and 
Sapphira of the Philippian community had been guilty of some act of 
greed, perhaps of fraud and dishonesty. Valens was one of their pres- 
byters, and thus the church was more directly responsible for his crime. 
Polycarp expresses himself much grieved at this incident. He trusts 
that the offenders may repent, but deprecates too great severity in their 
treatment. Though the incident itself is only mentioned in one passage, 
it has plainly made a deep impression on Polycarp. The sin of avarice 
is denounced again and again in the body of the letter (see the note on 

The letter is sent by the hand of one Crescens, who had approved 
himself by his conduct during his residence at Smyrna. The sister of 
Crescens also, who purposes visiting Philippi, is commended to them 
( 14). 


The following is an Analysts of the epistle : 

' PoLYCARP and his presbyters to the Church of Philippi, mercy 
and peace.' 

' I rejoiced to hear how you welcomed and escorted the saints in 
their fetters. You have fitly sustained your old reputation. Seeing 
not, ye believe, and are saved by grace ( i). Be diligent therefore. 
Remember that Christ will come in power to judge all mankind. Ye 
shall then be raised with Him, if ye abstain from all sin, and requite not 
evil with evil. The kingdom of heaven is promised to the poor and the 
persecuted ( 2). I should not have written thus, if ye had not invited 
me. I cannot tread in the footsteps of the blessed Paul, who taught you 
both by word of mouth and by letter. His letters will edify you in 
faith, love, and hope ( 3).' 

'Love of money is the root of all evil. Walk in righteousness your- 
selves. Teach your wives to cherish their husbands, to be kindly to all, 
and to train up their children in piety. Let the widows be sober- 
minded, remembering that they are God's altar, and that their offerings 
are scanned by His all-seeing eye ( 4). Let the deacons also be blame- 
less and follow Him who was the chief deacon. Let the younger men 
likewise bridle themselves and restrain their lusts. No profligate person 
shall inherit the kingdom. Let them also render obedience to the 
presbyters and deacons ( 5). The presbyters themselves must be 
pitiful and tender towards the weak and helpless, not wrathful, but 
forgiving as they hope to be forgiven. We all shall stand before the 
judgement seat of Christ. Avoid false and hypocritical brethren ( 6). 
To deny Jesus Christ, to reject the testimony of the cross, to pervert 
God's oracles these are the works of Antichrist, of Satan. Let us avoid 
such and cling to the doctrine once delivered, praying God to keep us 
from temptation ( 7). Let us hold fast to Jesus Christ, who is our 
righteousness and our redemption. Let us take Him for our pattern 
and imitate His patience amidst suffering ( 8). You have seen bright 
examples of such patient endurance in Ignatius, Zosimus, and Rufus, 
yea in Paul himself and the other Apostles. They have received their 
reward, for they loved not the present world ( 9). Be steadfast in the 
faith, and kindly one to another. Give no occasion to the heathen to 
blaspheme ( 10).' 


*I am much grieved about your presbyter Valens. Beware of 
avarice, which is idolatry. The covetous man therefore is judged as a 
heathen. I cannot suppose you guilty of such sin you whom the 
blessed Paul commendeth. May God grant repentance to Valens and 
his wife; and do ye deal gently with them, treating them as erring 
members ( ii). The Scriptures warn us against excess of wrath and 
severity. Remember this.' 

'May God the Father, and the eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ, 
build you up in faith and gentleness and patience and purity; and may 
He give you your lot and portion among the saints you and all who 
believe in His resurrection. Pray for all men. Pray for kings and 
rulers. Pray for your persecutors ( 12).' 

' I will do as I was requested by you and by Ignatius. I will see 
that your letter is conveyed to Syria. I send you herewith the letters 
addressed by Ignatius to us, with others, as ye requested me. Read 
them for your edification. Send me the latest news of Ignatius and his 
companions ( 13).' 

' I send this letter by the hand of Crescens, who will approve himself 
to you, as he has to us, by his conduct. I commend to you his sister 
also, who will pay you a visit. Farewell in Christ ( 14).' 

The authorities for the text are as follows. 

(i) Greek Manuscripts (G). 

Where there is no variation in the mss, the existing form of the 
Greek text is given as G. Where variations occur, the several mss are 
designated by the letters attached to them in the following list. 

1. Vaticanus 859 (v). 

2. Ottobonianus 348 (o). 

3. Florentinus Laiir. vii. 21 (f). 

4. Parisiensis Graec. 937 (p). 

5. Casaiiatoisis G. v. 14 (c). 

6. Theatinus (t). 

7. Neapolitatius Mus. Nat. 11. a. 17 (n). 

8. Salmasianus (s). 

9. Andrius (a). 


All these nine mss belong to the same family, as appears from the 
fact that the Epistle of Polycarp runs on continuously into the Epistle 
of Barnabas without any break, dTroOavovra koI 8t ijfxois vVo tov \a6v t6v 
Kevov (kulvov) k.t.X.; the mutilated ending of Polycarp 9 diroOavovTa koI 
8l qiJ-a.<i vTTo being followed by the mutilated beginning of Barnabas 5 
ToV AaoV TOV KaLvov K.T.X. Within this family however the mss fall into 
two subdivisions : (i) 7'(?p/, all mss in which the Epistle of Polycarp is 
attached to the pseudo-Ignatian letters ; and (2) c^na (to which we may 
probably add s), where it stands alone. In the first subdivision, op/ 
have no independent authority, being derived directly or indirectly from 
V, and their readings are only given for the sake of exhibiting the con- 
nexion. Of the two subdivisions the former is slightly superior to the 

(ii) Latin Version (L). 

The character of this version has been considered already. In the 
earlier part of the epistle it is sometimes useful for correcting the text 
of the extant Greek mss ; for, though very loose and paraphrastic, it 
was made from an older form of the Greek than these. But the 
two are closely allied, as appears from the fact that this version is 
always found in connexion with the Latin of the pseudo-Ignatian 
letters and seems to have been translated from the same volume which 
contained them. For the latter part of the epistle, from 10 onward, 
it is the sole authority ; with the exception of portions of 12, which are 
preserved in Syriac in passages of Timotheus and Severus or elsewhere, 
and nearly the whole of 13, which is given by Eusebius in his Ecde- 
siastical History. On this account a reference to individual mss of the 
Latin Version is sometimes necessary. The mss of which collations 
have been made for this part either by myself or by others are : 

1. Reginensis 81 (r). 

2. Trecensis ^12 [X). 

3. Parisiensis 1639, formerly Colbertinus 1039 (c). 

4. Bruxdlensis 5510 (b). 

5. 0x071. Balliolensis 229 (o). 

6. Falafi?ius 150 (p). 

7. Florentinus Laur. xxiii. 20 (f). 

8. Vmdobonensis 1068 (v). 

9. Oxon. Magdalenensis 78 (m). 

The collations of rp are taken from Dressel ; the other mss, tcbofvm, 
\ collated myself for this portion. Mere variations of spelling and 


obvious clerical errors are not recorded. It did not seem necessary to 
give the readings of the other two Brussels mss, which I collated for 
this part, as they so closely resemble Bruxellensis 5510. One reading 
however of Bruxellensis 703 is mentioned in 13, on account of its 
interest, though of no authoritative value. 

It will have been seen that, so far as regards the Greek and Latin 
MSS, the Epistle of Polycarp is closely connected with the Long Recen- 
sion of the Ignatian Epistles. This fact, if it had stood by itself, would 
have thrown some discredit on the integrity of the text. It might have 
been suspected that the same hand which interpolated the Ignatian 
Epistles had tampered with this also. From the point of view of in- 
ternal evidence, I have already disposed of this suspicion in the 
general introduction, when discussing the genuineness of the Epistle 
of Polycarp. As regards external evidence, the quotations of Eusebius, 
Timotheus, and Severus, with the other Syriac fragments, are a highly 
important testimony. They show that, wherever we have opportunity 
of testing the text of the Greek and Latin copies, its general integrity is 

The earliest printed text of the Epistle of Polycarp was the Latin 
Version, included by J. Faber Stapulensis with his edition of the Igna- 
tian Letters according to the Long Recension (a.d. 1498). This was 
reprinted several times. The Latin Version was also included in the 
Micropresbyticon (Basil. 1550) and elsewhere. It is not known what 
MS or MSS Faber Stapulensis used. 

The Greek text was first published by P. Halloix in his Illustrium 
Ecclesiae Orientalis Scriptorum...Frifno Christi Saeculo... Vitae et Docti- 
menta i. p. 525 sq (Duaci 1633). Before this however Fr. Turrianus 
'longe prolixiorem [Polycarpi epistolam] ilia [i.e. Latina], quae habetur 
typis excusa, apud se Graece esse scrip tarn, cum viveret, testatus est,' as 
we learn from Baronius [Martyrol. Roman. Jan. 26). The copy of Tur- 
rianus, like all the known Greek mss, contained the Epistles of Poly- 
carp and Barnabas attached together ; and hence he fell into the error 
of supposing that he possessed this epistle in a much longer form than 
the Latin. 

The sources of the text of Halloix were twofold, as he himself 
states; (i) * Ex ipsius jam laudati Turriani apographo earn [epistolam] 
ante plurimos annos Romae descripsit noster Jacobus Sirmondus, atque 


illud ipsum exemplar tunc a se descriptum nuper ad me misit ; (2) ego 
cum altero exemplari Andreae Schotti collatum jam nunc in lucem 
emitto.' Halloix mentions at the same time on the authority of a letter 
from Louis Cr^sol that there were two other mss at Rome resem- 
bling these ,; one in the Vatican Library, the other then in the possession 
of the Duke Altemps, but formerly of Card. Colonna ; but he did not 
make any use of them. These are identified with Vatic. 859 (v) and 
Otfob. 348 (o) respectively. Halloix was not misled like Turrianus, but 
saw where the Epistle of Polycarp ended, and printed it accordingly. 

A few years later (a.d. 1644) Ussher also printed the Greek text of 
this epistle in the same volume with his Ignatius. His own words will 
best explain whence he derived his text ; ' Duas hasce imperfectas 
Polycarpi et Barnabae epistolas, ex Andreae Schotti apographo sua ma- 
nu descriptas, vir clarissimus Claudius Salmasius...Isaaco Vossio...tra- 
didit' (Ussher's Jiidic. de Barnaba, reprinted in Cotelier Pair, Apost. 
I. p. 12, ed. Cleric, 1724; see also Voss Epist. Ignat. p. 309, Amstel. 
1646). This transcript, he informs us {Folyc. et Ignat. Epist. p. i, 
Oxon. 1644), he used for his text of Polycarp, comparing it with the 
edition of Llalloix. Thus the only Greek authority accessible to him 
was one of those already employed by his predecessor. He made use 
however of three Latin mss, Balliol. 229, Magdal. 78, and Petav. 

There is every reason to think that these two Greek copies that of 
Turrianus, and that of Andrew Schott (the latter transcribed by Saumaise 
and thus transmitted through L Voss to Ussher) were closely allied to 
each other, and probably derived from the same ms. They evidently 
belonged, as Zahn has pointed out, to the same family with ten. Geb- 
hardt {Pair. Apost. i. ii. p. xxii) goes a step farther and without hesita- 
tion identifies the common source of these transcripts with our Casana- 
tefisis. If this be so, the transcripts must have been carelessly made; e.g. 
5 irpo<i TTavra irpoyvoovvT^s for tt/do TravTos Trpovoowres. Moreover Young 
in Ussher (p. 4) gives as readings of the ms (apparently meaning 
Ussher's Salmasianus) 3 Trpoo-e-n-qXaKicraTe and 5 StAoyoi, whereas c 
has TrpoeirrjXaKLa-aaOe and StyXcocro-ot. Ussher seems to have transcribed 
the text of Halloix, but he corrects the readings of his predecessor in 
his notes. 

After Ussher's edition nothing was done for the text of Polycarp 
until quite recent times. The Epistle to the Philippians appeared in 
the editions of the Patres Apostolici, by Cotelier, Leclerc, Russel, and 
others ; but no new authorities were collated. It was also pubhshed in 
Lemoyne's Varia Sacra i. p. i sq (ed. i, 1685) and in Routh's Script. 
Eccles. Opusc. i. p. i sq (ed. i, 1832). But Lemoyne, though he had 


in his possession a transcript of the Florentine ms (f), appears to 
have made no use whatever of it, but to have copied the text of 
Halloix; and Routh satisfied himself with culling a reading or two 
from the Latin MS {Magdal. 78) which was at hand in his own College 

With the present generation a new epoch began. First Jacobson 
for his Patres Apostolici (ed. i, 1838) collated the Greek MSS Laur. vii. 
21 (f) and Paris. 937 (p) and the Latin ms Laur. xxiii. 20 (/). Then 
Dressel added still more largely to the materials for a text, collating the 
four Greek mss Vatic. 859 (v), Ottob. 348 (o), Casan. g. v. 14 (c), 
Barber. 7 (b), and the two Latin mss Palat. 150 (p) and Reg. 81 (r), 
all six at Rome, besides recollating in the more important passages, 
either himself or through his friends, the Florentine Greek ms Laur. 
vii. 21 (f). These aids he used for his own edition (ed. i, 1857). The 
materials thus collected were employed with greater effect by Zahn 
(1876), who produced a better text of this episde than any existing 
heretofore. After Zahn's text was in type, Gebhardt communicated to 
him a collation of Neapol. 11. A. 17 (n), which he had procured; and 
Zahn accordingly gives the most important of these readings in his 
preface (p. 270), but they were not received in time to be available 
for his text and critical apparatus. The subsequent text of Funk 
{Patr. Apost. 1878) follows on the same lines with Zahn. There is 
not indeed much scope for improvement, or even for variation, where 
the materials belong so exclusively to the same family. Of the colla- 
tions and recollations which I have made for the present edition, 
mention has been made already in the general introduction. 

The portions extant only in the Latin Version were retranslated into 
Greek by Zahn for his edition. Funk adopted Zahn's Greek with a few 
emendations (p. 277). Some years before Zahn's edition appeared, I 
had myself retranslated these portions into Greek, and this retranslation 
I now publish. It is entirely independent of Zahn's; and for this 
reason the very general agreement of the two may perhaps be accepted 
as a presumption that they fairly represent the original of Polycarp. 

Since the appearance of my first edition, this epistle has been twice 
edited, by Volkmar {Epishila Polycarpi Sniyrnaei Genuina, Zurich, 1885) 
and by Hilgenfeld {Zeitschr. f. Wissen. Theol. xxix. p. 180 sq, 1886). 
Neither editor has used any new materials for the text'. 

1 Hilgenfeld remarks on the great dif- most solely to the Latin MS f. He has not 

ferences in the various readings as given observed that Funk's f (see Echtheit etc. 

by Funk and by myself. If we may judge p. 150) is my c (Paris. Colbertinus 1039) 

by his collation, this remark applies al- and that my f is a wholly different MS.

I. 01 avv avTa K.r.X.] Polycarp 
evidently writes here as a bishop 
(iTvia-KoiTos) in the later and fuller 
sense of the title, surrounded by his 
council of presbyters ; and he is so 
styled in Ign. Magn. 15, Smyrn. 12,

The opening of this epistle is 
taken, with minor changes, from the 


beginning of the letter of Clement 
of Rome, from which also Polycarp 
borrows freely in other parts.

the simple dative ^iXiTTTrots, though

11. eTna-ToXds] For the plural 
used to designate a single letter see 
the passages collected in Philippians

by Maximus, speaking of Polycarp's 
own epistle ; Dion. Areop. Op. II. 
p. 93 (ed. Corder.) e;^et Se koI eVio-roXa? 
o ai/roy delos IIoXvKapTroi irpos $tX(7r- 
TTTjo-Lovs. On the whole therefore it 
seems most probable that Polycarp 
refers solely to the extant canonical 
Epistle to the Philippians. He may 
however have assu7ned that the Phil- 
ippians were still in possession of 
other letters written by the Apostle ; 
for it is not probable that any such 
were actually extant when he wrote. 
Otherwise they would probably have 
been preserved. The interpretation 
which supposes him to include the 
Epistles to the Thessalonians does 
not commend itself. See the note 
on eVicrroXas as used below, 13.

2. cos Ge<5 K.r.\.] See the note 
on Ign. Magn. 6. The contrast to 
the language of Ignatius is not less 
significant than the resemblance. It 
is the 'bishops,' not the presbyters, 
who stand in God's place in Ignatius. 
Either therefore there was no bishop 
at Philippi when Polycarp wrote, or 
Polycarp did not think fit to separate 
his claims to allegiance from those 
of the presbyters. 

VI. 'The presbyters also must be 
tender and pitiful, bringing home the 
strayed sheep, watching over the 
sickly, taking care of the widow and 
orphan and the poor man. Let them 
have regard to what is good in the 
sight of God and men, shunning all 
unrighteousness and malice, abstain- 
ing from covetousness, not credulous 
or harsh in their judgments of others, 
as conscious of their own infirmities. 
We must forgive, if we would be for- 
given ; for all alike will stand before 
the judgment-seat of Christ. So then 
let us serve Him in all godliness ac- 
cording to the teaching of the Apos- 
tles and the Prophets, holding aloof 
from all false brethren and hypo- 
crites and deceivers.'

tion and the judgment, is of Satan.

The spirit may be willing, but the

5. Has yapy /c.r.X.] Polycarp is 
echoing the words of his apostolic

ever the words Xpia-Tov eV aapKi iXr}-

polated from ver. 2 ; comp. also

errors of Docetism, which is so con- 
stantly attacked in the contemporary 
Epistles of Ignatius.

is the testimony of the cross? Is the

former. Perhaps it refers especially 
to the piercing of the side and the 
issue of blood and water (Joh. xix. 
34), as a proof of the reality of 
Christ's crucified body. Polycarp's

the duty of v7rop.ovi], using the same

trasts the suffering in a good cause 
with the suffering for faults com-

14. ZaxTijKa] Zosimus and Rufus 
have a place in the Marty7-oL Roinaii. 
p. 844 (Colon. 1610) under Dec. 18, 
' Philippis in Macedonia natalis sanc- 
torum martyrum Rufi et Zosimi, qui 
ex eo numero discipulorum fuerunt, 
per quos primitiva ecclesia in Judaeis 
et Graecis fundata est ; de quorum 
etiam felici agone scribit S. Poly- 
carpus in Epistola ad Philippenses,' 
following earlier Latin Martyrologies. 
From the connexion of names how- 
ever it may fairly be inferred that 
they did not suffer at Philippi itself, 
but belonged to that company of 
martyrs (mentioned in i) whom the 
Philippians received in passing and 
escorted on their way to Rome. Zahn 
(/. V. A. p. 292 sq) suggests that 
they may have been Bithynian Chris- 
tians who joined the saint at Philippi 
or Neapolis and were carried with 
him to Rome, having been sent thi- 
ther by Pliny ; Plin. Epist. 97 ' Fue- 


runt alii similis amentiae ; quos, quia 
cives Romani erant, adnotavi in 
urbem remittendos.' The Latin Mar- 
tyrologies obviously know of them 
only from this notice in Polycarp, 
which they interpret in their own 
way. Both names, Zosimus and 
Rufus, are fairly common. They both 
appear in the same inscriptions in 
Boeckh, Corp. Inscr. Graec. 192, 244, 
1969, 3664. In no. 1969, at Thessa- 
lonica, the name Valens also found 
in Polycarp's Epistle ( 11) occurs. 
So also we meet with the three names 
on different tablets of the same Latin 
inscription, C.I.L. ill. 633, at Philippi 
itself. The Rufus of Polycarp is pos- 
sibly the same who is mentioned in 
Rom. xvi. 13, and this latter again 
may with some degree of probability 
be identified with the son of Simon 
the Cyrenian and brother of Alex- 
ander (Mark xv, 21); but the name 
is not rare.

stalling one another!' In Lam. iii. 26 
this verb praestolari corresponds to 
vnojifveiu, in Job vii. 2 to dva^eveiv, in 
Judges xvi. 2 to evedpeveiv, in the 
LXX, while the substantive praestola- 
tio takes the place of eATri's in several 
passages ; comp. Ronsch Itala u. 
Vulgata pp. 76, 301. It denotes 
properly 'to be beforehand at a place 
and waiting for another,' and so 'to 
anticipate,' 'to forestall.' For the de- 
rivation see Peile's Greek and Latin 
Etymology p. 43. I have rendered 
it by TrporjyoviJLivot., from Rom. xii. 10

jecture as to the source of the ex-

of tji (f)iXa8eX(j)ia els aXKrjXovs (piXu- 
(TTopyoi. Zahn reproduces the Greek,

out of the words.

XI. 'I grieve exceedingly over 
your presbyter Valens, that he should 
so forget his office. Avoid covetous- 
ness. Abstain from all evil. How 
can a man teach others, when he is 
unable to govern himself? Covet- 
ousness is idolatry. The covetous 
man shall be judged as a Gentile ; 
whereas the saints shall themselves 
judge the world, as Paul teacheth. 
Not that I am aware of any such 
fault in you, among whom Paul 
laboured and of whom he boasted in 
all the churches at a time when we 
Smyrna^ans were not yet converted 
to Christ. I grieve greatly for Va- 
lens and his wife. God grant them 
true repentance. Treat ye them with 
moderation, and restore them as err- 
ing members, that your whole body 
may be made whole. So doing, ye 
shall edify yourselves.' 

II. Valente] The name Valens 
seems to have been common at Phi- 

lippi. It is found not less than four 
times on the tablets of one Latin 
inscription at this place, C.I.L. ill. 
633, L. Nutrius Valens Jun., M. Pub- 
hcius Valens, M. Plotius Valens, 
Sedius Valens, besides occurring in 
other inscriptions in the same neigh- 
bourhood, ib. 640, 690 : comp. the 
note on Zcoo-t/n" 9- See also Phi- 
lippians p. 64.

15. abstineatis etc] 'Abstinere se 
a' is the common rendering of dire-

16. avaritia] The original was 
probably (pikapyvpias, as cj)i\apyvpia is 
always rendered by avaritia ( 2, 4, 
6) and d4)ikdpyvpoi by az'ari{^ 5). On 
the other hand irXeove^la, in the only 
passage where it occurs, is translated 
by concHpiscentia 2. Some indeed 
suppose the original here to have 
been irXfove^ias, to which they give 
the meaning 'sensuality, unclean- 
ness.' But whether we adopt nXtov- 
t^ias or not, the vice here denounced 
is clearly avarice : for (i) From the

elsewhere in this epistle (see the note 
on 4), it is clear that Polycarp had 
some notable example of this sin 
fresh in his memory; (2) The wife of 
Valens was implicated in the crime, 
and this points rather to some sordid 
and dishonest money transaction, as 
in the case of Ananias and Sapphira; 
(3) In the context allusion is made 
to Col. iii. 5 K-'ii- TW TrXeoi'e^iai' fjTis 
idTiv (IdcoXoXaTpela, or to Ephes. v. 5 
irXeoveKTTjs, o i(TTiv elBodXoXdTprjs, which 
point plainly to the worship of mam- 
mon ; (4) In all the instances where 
nXeoveKTTjs, TrXeoveKrelv, TrXeove^la, are 
supposed to refer to sins of sen- 
suality, the words either have been 
misinterpreted or derive this mean- 
ing from something in the context : 
see the note on Col. iii. 5. 

17. casti] Assuming this word to 
stand for ayvoi, it has been supposed 
to point to some sin of unchastity on 
the part of Valens. We may indeed 
allow that the original was more pro- 
bably ayuoi than KadapoL, both be- 
cause the former is the more natural 
equivalent, and because ayvos, ayvela, 
are elsewhere in this epistle rendered 
by castus, castitas, 4, 5 : but ayvol 

might still apply to the absence of 
sordid and dishonest motives, as 
e.g. in Phil. i. 17 Xpiarov KarayyiX- 
Xovaiv ovx ayvms ; see Pind. Olymp. 
iii. 21 ayva Kpiais. Here it would be 
altogether appropriate, because ava- 
rice is denounced as idolatry, and 
ayvfia denotes purity of worship as 
opposed to the cultus of idols (i 
Mace. xiv. 36). This idea is carried 
out in the words 'ab idololatria coin- 
quinabitur'' below. The other epi- 
thet veraces again points to dis- 
honesty, rather than unchastity, as 
the vice which is here condemned. 
It is worth observing however that 
there is no authority for the conjunc- 
tion et in the Latin text, and perhaps 
the two adjectives 'casti veraces' are 
alternative renderings of one word 
etXtKptj/eiy, which by an accident have 
both retained a place in the text.

XIII. ' I have been asked by you 
and by Ignatius to allow our mes- 
senger to carry your letter to Syria. 
I will do this either myself or the 
delegate whom I shall send on your 
behalf as well as on ours. I have 
also attended to your other request, 
and sent you such letters of Ignatius 
as I had in my possession. They 
are attached to this letter. You will 
find them highly profitable, for they 
teach faith and patient endurance 
and are in all ways edifying. In 
return do ye communicate to me the

15. Kai 'lyvarios] There is no direct 
charge in the letter of Ignatius to 
Polycarp, that the Smyrnaean mes- 
senger should carry the letter of the 
Philippians to Syria. If therefore 
Polycarp has used a rigidly accurate 
expression here, it will be necessary 
to suppose that Ignatius had written 
other instructions (no longer extant) 
to Polycarp probably a few lines by 
way of postscript to the letter of the 
Philippians. We may observe how- 

ever; (i) That Polycarp does not 
separate the instructions of the Phil- 
ippians from those of Ignatius, but 
masses them together ; and (2) That 
Ignatius, writing to Polycarp, does 
charge him generally to place in the 
hands of the Smyrnaean delegate the 
letters of divers churches which 
were not able to send messengers of 
their own {Polyc. 8 o\ Se iinorroXas 
8ia Tav VTTO uov nennofxivcov). Poly- 
cai-p therefore, writing loosely, might 
very naturally infuse the instructions 
of Ignatius into the request of the 
Philippians, as applying indirectly to 
them, though not immediately refer- 
ring to them. 

16. KOL ra Trap" vfiav] 'The letter 
from you Phihppians as well as that 
from us Smyrnseans.' Ignatius had 
given directions to the churches 
generally {Phil ad. 10, Smyrn. 11, 
Polyc. 7, 8) to send letters, and 
(where it was possible) delegates 
bearing these letters to the Ant- 
iochene Church. The Philippian 
Church was too far distant to send 
a delegate (see Polyc. 7), and hence 
they entrusted their letter to the

appears from this passage that Poly-

a possibility, as churches less distant 
from Syria had sent their bishops 
{Phtlad. 10 at eyyicrra eKKXtjalat enefi-

this did not enter into the mind of 
Ignatius himself, for he prays for a

therefore would be satisfied by the 
single Epistle to Polycarp, and critics 
are not justified in assuming that the 
Epistle to the Smyrnfeans is also 
included. The expression however 
more naturally suggests more than 
one letter ; and, so far, it favours the

10. qui cum eo sunt] The Latin 
translator thus makes Polycarp speak 
as though Ignatius were still living, 
but this is inconsistent with 9. The 
expression in the original was doubt- 
less neutral as regards time, probably 
Tois ijvv avTw 'his companions,' as in 
the opening of this epistle where 
Tols (Tvv avT(a is translated in the 
same way 'qui cum eo sunt,' and 
thus has been wrongly rendered by 
a present. There is a similar error 
in 9, where roh e$ v^u>v is rendered 
'qui ex vobis sutit,' though the per- 
sons were no longer living. The 
companions alluded to here may 
have been Zosimus and Rufus, men- 
tioned by name in 9. Other asso- 
ciates of Ignatius are mentioned in 
his own epistles, such as Philo and 
Rhaius Agathopus {Philad. 1 1 , Smyrn. 
10), who were with him at Troas and 
would probably accompany him fur- 
ther on his route. This letter of 
Polycarp must have been written 
shortly after the death of Ignatius, 

and before the particulars of his 
martyrdom had reached Smyrna. 
On the difficulties, which this expres- 
sion 'qui cum eo sunt' has sug- 
gested, see the chapter in the gene- 
ral introduction on the genuineness 
of this letter. 

XIV. 'This letter will reach you 
through Crescens. I commend him 
to you now, as I have done here- 
tofore. His conduct with us was 
blameless, as doubtless it will be 
with you. Welcome his sister also, 
when she meets you. Farewell all of 
you in Christ. Amen.' 

14. per Crescentem] Crescens 
appears from the context to have 
been the bearer of the letter, and 
may have been the amanuensis also. 
See the note on Ign. Rom. 10 hC 
'Ecpio-lwv. The name Crescens is 
common. It occurs in 2 Tim. iv. 10, 
and is found also in a Philippian 
inscription (C /. L. ill. 633). 

in praesenti] Looking at the au- 
thorities, there can be no doubt that 
this should be adopted as the reading 
of the Latin Version. But as it 
makes no sense it must be a mis- 
translation. Now in praesejiti is a 
very natural rendering of apr, though 
altogether unsuited to this passage, 
where afiTi signifies 'recently,' 'not

THIS document is in the form of a letter addressed by the Church 
of Smyrna to the Church of Philomehum. At the same time the 
address is so worded as to imply that it was intended for much wider 
circulation, and at the close ( 20) directions are given to secure its 
being so circulated. On the other hand it is not, properly speaking, an 
encyclical letter, of which copies would be forwarded to a certain num- 
ber of specified communities each copy being addressed accordingly. 

The letter seems to have been written shortly after the martyrdom 
itself, which happened a.d. 155 or 156. Questions relating to its date, 
authenticity, etc., are fully discussed in the first volume of this work. 

The following is a brief analysis of its contents : 

'The Church of Smyrna to the Church of Philomelium and 
to all the brotherhoods of the Catholic Church.' 

'We send you an account of the martyrdom of Polycarp and his 
companions. Nearly all the incidents followed the precedent of the 
Gospel. Thus they are an example to us ( i). Mangled and exposed 
to the most excruciating tortures, the sufferers endured without a groan 
or a murmur. These temporal torments were as nothing to them com- 
pared with the eternal torments. Their eyes were set on the glories of 
eternity. In vain did the devil attempt to seduce them ( 2). The 
brave youth Germanicus more especially fought courageously to the 
end, refusing to take quarter. Then there was a cry, 'Search for 
Polycarp ' ( 3). On the other hand Quintus a Phrygian, who had 
officiously courted martyrdom, yielded when the crisis came, and was 
found a renegade ( 4).' 

IGN. III. 23 


' Meanwhile Polycarp had been persuaded to retire to a farm not 
far from the city. There he saw in a vision his pillow in flames, and 
prophesied that he should die by fire ( 5). At length he was detected, 
being betrayed by a lad of his household ; and Herod, the captain of 
police, sent a mounted force to apprehend him ( 6). They found him 
in an upper chamber. He refused to flee. He ordered meat and 
drink to be given to his pursuers, and betook himself to prayer ( 7), 
interceding after his wont for all, high and low. Then seated on an ass, 
he was led to the city, where he was met by Herod and Herod's father 
Nicetes, who transferred him to their own carriage. They intreated 
him to sacrifice, but he staunchly refused. So he Avas taken into the 
stadium amidst a general uproar ( 8). As he entered, a voice was 
heard from heaven, bidding him quit himself as a man. Again and 
again the proconsul urged him to yield and to revile Christ. He 
refused to be faithless to the good Master whom he had served eighty- 
six years ( 9). The importunities of the proconsul were continued. 
Polycarp declined at his instance to appeal to the people ( 10). The 
proconsul's entreaties were exchanged for menaces. He threatened 
Polycarp with Avild-beasts and with fire. It was all in vain ( 11). 
Polycarp joyfully declared himself a Christian. The people cried out 
against him, and asked the Asiarch Philip to let a Hon loose upon him. 
This he refused to do, as the venationes were over. Then they cried out 
for fire. This was so ordained, that his vision of the burning pillow 
might be fulfilled ( 12). Accordingly a huge pyre of logs and faggots 
was heaped up, the Jews being the most active at this work. He took 
off his clothes and his sandals. On their attempting to nail him to 
the stake, he asked to be left free ( 13). They were satisfied with 
binding him, and there he stood like a ram ready for sacrifice. Then he 
poured forth prayer and thanksgiving, glorifying God that He had 
accepted him as a sacrificial victim ( 14). The fire was lighted; but 
the flame refused to touch him, arching itself into a vault round him ; 
while a sweet odour rose, as of incense ( 15). At length, as the fire 
refused to do its work, an executioner was ordered to stab him. From 
the wound issued [a dove and] a quantity of blood, so as to quench the 
flames to the marvel of all. Thus died this saint, whose every prophecy 
was fulfilled ( 16).' 

' Then the devil prompted Nicetes at the instigation of the Jews to 
intercede with the magistrate not to give up the body ; lest we should 
worship it. They do not know that it is impossible for us to abandon 
the Saviour and adore any human being in His stead ( 17). The 
centurion therefore had the body burnt, and we gathered up the bones, 


more precious to us than any jewel, and hid them in a place where, by 
the Lord's favour, we purpose celebrating his birthday year by year ( 18),' 
' Thus died Polycarp, along with eleven others from Philadelphia ; 
but he stands out pre-eminent, as a teacher and an example, who having 
overcome the enemy and won the immortal crown, in company with 
Apostles and righteous men exults and glorifies God the Father and the 
Lord Jesus Christ ( 19).' 

* We send you this letter by the hand of Marcianus. Circulate it 
among the brethren beyond. Praise and glory be to God. Salute all 
the saints. All here, including the writer Euarestus, salute you ( 20).' 

Date of the martyrdom ( 21). 
['We bid you farewell in Christ Jesus, with whom be glory to God 
the Father and the Holy Spirit ( 22).'] 

* Transcribed by Gaius from the papers of Irenaeus. [This Iren^eus 
records how Polycarp confronted and denounced Marcion in Rome. 
The martyrdom of Polycarp in Smyrna was announced to him in Rome 
by a divine voice at the time of its occurrence.]' 

' I Socrates transcribed it in Corinth from the copy of Gaius.' 
' I Pionius transcribed it from the last-mentioned copy, which was 
revealed to me by Polycarp himself. I gathered up the record worn 
with time, as I hope myself to be gathered up into heaven ( 23).' 


The authorities for the text are threefold : (i) The Greek manu- 
scripts ; (ii) The extracts in Eusebius ; (iii) The Latin version. 

(i) Greek Manuscripts [G]. 

The manuscripts of the original Greek are now five in number. 

(i) Mosquetisis 160 (now 159) [m], in the Library of the Holy 
Synod at Moscow, rightly ascribed (says Gebhardt) by Matthai {Cod. 
Graec. MSS Bibl. Afosq. S. Synod. Not. i. p. 89, Lips. 1805) to the 
thirteenth century. This volume contains legends and encomia of saints. 
The martyrdom of Polycarp is on fol. 96 99 a. A full account and 
collation of it was given by Gebhardt in Zeitschr. f. Hist. Theol. XLV 
(xxxix). p. 355 sq (1875). Zahn (1876) was thus the earliest editor 
who was able to make use of it for his text. This MS omits the first 
paragraph of 22, containing the final salutation 'EppwaOai...ivpe6rjvai, 
77/i,?) and amphfies the remaining part of this same chapter, more 
especially the portion relating to the connexion between Polycarp and 




IrenEeus. This is the most important of the Greek manuscripts, as is 
shown by the coincidence of its readings with those of Eusebius. 

(2) Barocciamts 238 [b], in the Bodleian Library at Oxford, stated 
in Coxe's Catalogiie to belong to the eleventh century and looking 
quite as old. The ms is a thin folio, containing 54 (numbered 13, 

6 56) leaves of vellum. It is mutilated at the beginning and end, 

and has lost two leaves (4 and 5), since it was last numbered ap- 
parently in the seventeenth century. The earlier paging shows that 
the MS is only a fragment of a much larger volume, having lost 200 
leaves at the beginning and an indefinite number at the end. It is 
well written, in double columns, in the ordinary cursive hand of the 
period, with some small uncials intermixed. It has accents and 
breathings, both rather carelessly noted, but not iota subscript or 
adscript. Itacisms are numerous : e.g. o and w are frequently confused, 
and so (though less frequently) i and i, t] and t, y] and ei. Polycarp's 
martyrdom follows the martyrdom of Papias, Diodorus, and Claudms, 
and is succeeded by a discussion of the manner in which the head 
of John the Baptist came to Emesa. It begins on fol. 14 b, [L-qvl tw 
avTw KT '-IJ-apTvpLOV TOiJ ayiou TroXvKapTrov e-ma-Koirov crp.vpvr]'; rrjs acrias. 
Trpo eVra (sic) KaXavSwv (j>vpovapL(i)v. The month intended is February, 
as appears plainly from the other contents of the volume (e.g. fol. 25 
MHNi (})eYpoYApico Ke); so that ^evpomptW is an error for /AopriW. 
This indeed is apparent from the number kt, which corresponds to 
vii Kal. only in the month of February. 

From this MS Ussher derived his text of the Martyrdom of Polycarp 
(Ign. et Polyc. Mart. p. iv, Lond. 1647). More recently it was collated 
throughout by Dr Jacobson, who also gives a facsimile. I am indebted 
for a thorough and accurate re-collation to the kindness of the Rev. 
J. Wordsworth, of Brasenose College, now Bishop of Salisbury, to whom 
also I owe the account of the ms which is given here. He confirms the 
substantial accuracy of Jacobson's collation. 

(3) Paris. Bibl. Nat. Graec. 1452 [p], called by Halloix Mediceiis ; 
see Catal. Cod. MSS Bibl. Reg. 11. p. 322 (1740). It is also described 
in Duchesne Vita S. Polycarpi Aiictore Pionio p. 6. A parchment 
MS in double columns in handwriting of the tenth century, with accents 
often wrong and iota frequently adscript, often omitted, but never 
subscript. It contains lives, martyrdoms, and eulogies of saints 
for the month of February. The Martyrdom of Polycarp is on fol. 
192 b 196 b. It is preceded by the Life of Polycarp by Pionius, 
wrongly entered in the Catalogue as Martyriiim Polycarpi, and is 


followed by Narratio de invcnto S. ^oannis capite. A copy of this 
MS, procured by Rosvveid, was used by Halloix for his life of Polycarp 
(see Zahn p. lii), and Bolland translated it for his Acta Saiicforwn, Jan. 
IL p. 695 sq. A facsimile is given by Jacobson, who collated the 
Letter of the Smyrngeans for his edition. I have myself made a fresh 
collation for the present work. 

(4) Vindob. Hist. Graec. Ecd. iii (formerly xi) [v] ; a parchment 
MS of very large size, consisting of 390 leaves, written in a cursive hand, 
and belonging to the end of the eleventh or beginning of the twelfth 
century, except fol. 137^152 which are in a fourteenth century 
hand. A facsimile is given by Jacobson. The iota adscript is almost 
always omitted. The title of the MS given on the first leaf is ^ioi kox 
fj-aprvpia tcjv dyiwv. It contains a menology for the month of February. 
The Martyrdom of Polycarp begins on fol. 200 b, col. 2. It omits 
considerable portions of 10, 17, alters freely throughout, and leaves 
out 20 23, substituting a much shorter ending of its own which is 
chiefly made up of the omitted portion of 17. Altogether the MS 
betrays all the marks of an arbitrary literary revision. T. Smith gave a 
few various readings from this MS, taking them from Lambecius Cotnni. 
de Bibl. Caesar. Vindob. viii. p. 88, where the beginning and end of 
these Acts are given. Jacobson collated it throughout. I am indebted 
to the kindness of Dr H. Schenke, of Vienna, for a new collation. 

(5) S. Sep. Hie}-osol. i fol. 136 [s] at Jerusalem ; discovered by Prof. 
J. Rendel Harris (while these sheets were passing through the press for my 
second edition) in the monastery of the Holy Sepulchre, if I rightly in- 
terpret my correspondent's brief account. To Prof. Rendel Harris' ex- 
treme kindness and promptitude I owe a very careful collation of this 
document. It is described as belonging to the tenth century, and is of 
the family bpv, but possesses little or no distinctive peculiarity. It is 
however valuable as being probably the earliest MS of that group. 

(ii) EusEBius [E]. 

The extracts of Eusebius are found in Hist. Ecd. iv. 15. The 
historian speaks of Polycarp's death as iYypd<f)(i)? In ^^p6ii.vov, ' still 
circulated in a written record.' He describes this record as follows ; 
Icrri Se t] ypa<^rj Ik TrpoaojTrov ^s ai;Tos eK/cXvyo'tas ^yetTO rats Kara IIovtov 
TrapotKtais rd Kar avTov dTro<jr]p.aLvov(ra, The Strange Statement Kara 
IIovTov is considered in the note on Kara Travra tottou. 

He then quotes the opening words, 'H eKKXrjaLa tov eov...KaTeTrav(r 
ToV Stcoy/xoV ( i). Next after this (tovtois e^i^?) he gives an abridged 



account of the sufferings of the other martyrs ( 2), and speaks more 
at length of Germanicus and Quintus (^ 3, 4). He then gives a 
summary of the earUer stages of the persecution of Polycarp himself, 
adopting more or less the words of the document itself ( 5, 6, 7). 
For the apprehension and martyrdom itself he quotes directly from 

the document, 8 'EttcI Se Trore k.t.X ig iv Travrl toVu) XaXtlcrOai. 

Thus he preserves the greater part of the work. He introduces this 
long extract however with the words, >; Trepl avrov ypacjiT] kuto. Xe^iv 
<JSSe TTcos ra e^ys Trjs icTToptas cx^i, where the expression (S8e ttcos 
seems to qualify the promise of exact verbal quotation held out in 
Kara Xi^iv. As a matter of fact however a comparison shows that the 
extract is generally given word for word. At the same time he seems 
to have made slight alterations here and there for the sake of clear- 
ness (e.g. substituting ox>7/xa for Kapovxa in two places 8); and 
possibly (though this is doubtful) the omission of Trepto-repa kol ( 16) 
may have been an arbitrary alteration of his own. No stress however 
can be laid on the expression ^8e ttus, which he uses elsewhere to 
introduce verbatim quotations (see above, i. p. 59). As the extract ends 
in the middle of 19, we are unable to say whether or not the copy 
of Eusebius contained the supplementary paragraphs ( 21, 22, 23), 
which give the date of the martyrdom and the history of the transmis- 
sion. This question is discussed in the general introduction. 

As Eusebius is much the earliest authority for the text of this 
document, so he is the most valuable ; and, wherever he is confirmed by 
any one other authority, we can (as a rule) have little doubt about 
accepting his reading. I have not thought it necessary to give the 
various readings in the mss and versions of Eusebius himself, except 
where these correspond to various readings in the other authorities for 
this Martyrdom. In other cases that reading in Eusebius may be 
assumed to be correct which is confirmed by the reading of the inde- 
pendent authorities for this document. 

(iii) Latin Version [L]. 

The different forms in which the Passio S. Polycarpi appears in the 
Latin language are investigated by A. Harnack, who examined several 
Paris MSS and gives the results in an appendix to Die Zeit des Ignatius 
p. 77 sq. His account is much fuller and more accurate than can be 
found elsewhere. These forms are threefold. 

(i) The Letter of the Smyrnseans is given as it appears in Rufinus' 
translation of Eusebius {H. E. iv. 25). A typical example is Paris. 


Bibl. Nat. Lat. 5 5 68 (tenth cent). In this form it is commonly- 
accompanied, as in the ms just mentioned, by a collection of the 
notices of Polycarp gathered from Irenseus, as they appear in the same 
translation of Rufinus. The manner in which these extracts are com- 
bined is described by Harnack (p. 81 sq) ; but we are not concerned 
with this matter here. 

(2) It appears in an independent Latin translation, either complete, 
or mutilated, or abridged at the end. 

(3) In some mss both forms are given. This is the case in Paris. 
Bibl. Nat. Lat. 17003 (formerly Feuillantiniis), Paris. Bibl. Nat. Lat. 
5291 (formerly Colberti/ius), and Paris. Bibl. Nat. Lat. 5341 (formerly 

With the Rufinian form (i) we have no concern, and may therefore 
confine our attention to those mss which contain the independent 
version, i.e. to those which belong to heads (2) and (3). These again 
fall into three classes : 

{a) The letter is given complete, as in 

Sarisburiensis, used by Ussher. I am informed that this MS is no 

longer in the Cathedral Library at Salisbury. 
Brit. Mus. Cotton. Nero E. i. 27, also used by Ussher. 
Paris. Bibl. Nat. Lat. 9741, to be identified with the Cod. S. 

Maximini Trevirensis, used by Bolland. A collation is given 

in Harnack, 1. c. p. 78 sq. 
Audomarensis (S. Omer), likewise used by Bolland. 

(b) The letter ends with the actual martyrdom, stopping at 19 
'martyrium in Smyrna videtur implesse' (eV 'Sfivpvy ixapTvpr](Ta<;), and 
omitting the subsequent matter. This is only a few words before the 
point at which Eusebius (and therefore Rufinus) breaks off; but, as 
it forms a natural termination, the coincidence is probably accidental ; 

C/iiJletianus, from which Bolland gives readings, describing them 
as 'quae ex alio Burgundico ms nobis communicavit Petrus 
Franciscus Chiffietius noster.' I do not know that this ms has 
been identified. 

(c) The letter is mutilated and ends at 'cupiebant' in 13; 
Paris. Bibl Nat. Lat. 17003. 

Paris. Bibl. Nat. Lat. 5291. 
Paris. Bibl. Nat. Lat. 5341. 

{d) The same mutilation, but the missing end is supplied by an 
excerpt from Rufinus ; 


Paris. Bihl. de F Arsenal 996 (formerly Carmelit. Discalceat.), a MS 
known to and cited by Ruinart. 

Fratellensis, also a ms used by Ruinart. 

All these mss give one and the same version. Ruinart indeed 
mentions 'aliam versionem,' which was contained in a ms 'Carmeli- 
tarum Discalceatorum ' ; and this expression raised great hopes (see 
Zahn p. liv, Funk p. xcviii). But these hopes were quenched by the 
investigations of Harnack, who has identified this ms of the Carmelites 
with Paris. Bibl. de V Arsenal 996 (see p. 86). Thus the peculiarities of 
this and the allied ms Pratellcnsis (e.g. the omission of ' the dove ' in 
16), which seemed to betoken a different version, are due to the fact 
that the latter part is taken from Rufinus. 

This version is very loose and paraphrastic, and betrays great 
ignorance on the part of the translator, who moreover adds and omits 
freely of his own caprice. As regards the date it is impossible to form 
any opinion. Gregory of Tours (1594 : for the dates of his works see 
Teuffel Gesch. d. Rom. Lit. % 454) speaks of the history of Polycarp's 
passion being read in the Church of Ricomagus on his festival {Mirac. 
i. 86); and elsewhere {Hist. Franc, i. 26) he writes 'In Asia autem 
orta persecutione beatissimus Polycarpus Joannis apostoli et evange- 
listae discipulus octogesimo [sexto] aetatis suae anno, velut holocaustum 
purissimum, per ignem Domino consecratur,' where ' sexto ' is 
omitted probably by accident. This latter passage is evidently taken 
from the Letter of the Smyrnseans. Hence Ussher {Ign. et Polyc. Mart. 
praef ) infers that our Latin version must have been already in exist- 
ence. So too Ruinart (p. 74). They did not notice however that, 
while Gregory might have derived the 86 years either from Rufinus 
or from the independent Latin version, he could have got the ' holo- 
caustum' only from Rufinus, for the Latin version here ( 14) sub- 
stitutes something wholly different. It is probable therefore that the 
history of Polycarp's passion, which was read in the Churches of Gaul, 
was taken from Rufinus. 

It will have been seen from the account given that this version 
is quite valueless for interpretation ; and, as the various readings of 
the Latin mss do not affect the Greek text, I have not thought fit to 
reprint it. It is carefully edited by Zahn, so far as was possible with 
the materials accessible to him. 

Zahn (prol. liv) speaks of a Syriac Version ' quae in Museo Britan- 
nico (ms 14641) editorem exspectat,' and adds 'haec a Pionii recen- 
sione derivata est.' Elsewhere again (p. 157) he describes it as 
belonging to the Pionian recension and states on the authority of 


Lagarde that it is not free from 'vitio vetusto ', i.e. the erroneous read- 
ing of Pionius (as he conceives it) Trcpio-rcpa kclL This is a mistake. 
The Martyrdom of Polycarp contained in Brif. Mus. Add. 14641 
(fol. 146 a) is correctly described by Wright {Catalogue of Syriac MSS 
p. 1045) as 'an extract from the Ecclesiastical History of Eusebius, 
lib. iv, comprising the last sentence of cap. 14 ['Avrovtvov /xcv 877 
K.T.A.] and the whole of cap. 15.' Accordingly it omits Trcpto-repa kox 
with the text of Eusebius. 

There is likewise a Coptic Version in the Memphitic dialect in the 
A^atican MS Copt. 58, fol. 79 sq; but this again, like the Syriac, is 
made not from the document itself, but from the account in Eusebius. 
This account however is somewhat manipulated, especially at the 
beginning and end, so as to read continuously. A transcript of this 
Coptic version was made for me by the kindness of Professor Guidi; 
but as it furnishes no independent evidence, I have not reprinted it. 
It commences 

<l>'Aies.pTTpo<\.oxTJon Mt^Hee^oTris^fi. nemcKonoc oTog^ .uAVd^pTirpoc

'The martyrology of the holy bishop and martyr of Christ, Abba 
Polycarp, the disciple of the Apostles, which he accomplished on the 
29th of the month Mechir; in the peace of God. Amen.' 

In the following history of the prhitcd text only those editors are 
mentioned who have made some direct use of original authorities. 

Halloix first of all gave in full the contents of this document for his 
Latin Life of Polycarp [Illustr. Ecd. Orient. Script. Vet. i. p. 542 sq, 
Duaci 1623), but did not print it totidem verbis. Of his materials he 
writes; 'Haec [i.e. the doings of Polycarp] hactenus non edita, sed 
tantum in manuscriptis codicibus conservata sunt; quorum exemplar 
unum atque alterum nactus cum Menaeo Graecorum contuli.' Else- 
where however he speaks only of one MS, and there is no evidence 
that for these Acts he used more than one. Twenty years later Bolland 
{Act. Sanct. Jan. 26, 11. p. 692 sq, Antwerp 1643) g^'Ve a translation of 
this document, which he made from a Greek ms belonging to the library 
'Regis Christianissimi.' At the same time he published the old 
Latin version from three Latin mss, S. Maximini Trevirensis, Audoma- 


rensis, and Chiffletianus, all described above. He speaks of Halloix 
as deriving his matter 'ex hoc ms nostro alioque,' meaning by 'nostro' 
the IMS in the King's Library at Paris, as already mentioned. This 
must be identified with Paris. Grace. 1452 {Mediccus). The reasons 
which have been urged against this identification will be considered 
hereafter in the introduction to the Life of Polycarp by Pionius. A 
few years later Ussher {Ignat. et Polyc. Martyr. 1647) published both 
the Greek and the Latin. The former, which appeared now for the 
first time, was taken from the Oxford ms, Barocc. 238. He hkewise 
mentions in his preface 'Mediceus Regis Gallorum,' i.e. the ms used 
by Halloix, but he does not appear to have made any use of it. For 
the Latin version he used Sarishiriensis and Cottoiiianiis. He betrays 
no knowledge of Holland's work. Ruinart {^Act. Mart. Sine, ed. 2, 17 13) 
also gave the Greek and the Latin, being entirely dependent upon 
Ussher, except that for the Latin version he made use likewise of two 
other MSS, Colbert inus and Pratellensis. In his notes, as already 
mentioned (p. 360), he also refers to a ms or mss of the Carmelites. 
The Colbertine ms used by Ruinart should probably be identified with 
Paris. Graec. 5291 or Paris. Graec. 5341, though Harnack (p. 81) 
gives an inconclusive reason for supposing that it may have been some 
other unknown MS. T. Smith, as already mentioned (p. 357), in his 
edition (1709) added in his foot-notes a few various readings of the 
Greek text of the Vienna MS. Jacobson (ed. i, 1838) collated the 
three Greek mss, b p v, for his edition. Lastly Zahn (a.d. 1876), besides 
making full use of all the existing materials, added to them Gebhardt's 
collation of m, and published a thoroughly revised text of both the 
Greek original and the Latin version. 

Besides the new ms s now used for the first time in the present edition 
of the Greek text, I have also procured fresh collations of b p v. The 
principles which must guide an editor in the construction of the text are 
simple and obvious. A reading found in Eusebius and any one other 
authority must, as a rule, be accepted. Where Eusebius fails us, the 
coincidence of the Latin version with any one Greek ms should com- 
monly be regarded as decisive. Of the Greek mss themselves the 
general order in point of authority is m b p s v; but in individual cases 
the peculiarities of the several mss may require to be considered in 
estimating their relative value.

2. eV ^CkopLrfklcd] Philomelium was 
a town in Phrygia Paroreios, not 
far in actual distance from Pisidian 
Antioch. The two however were 
separated by a mountain range or 
chine {opeivrj paxi^s), which ran from 
East to West and gave its name to 
the district ; Philomelium lying in 
the plain on the north side, and An- 
tioch on a hill on the south side of 
this range (Strabo xii. p. 577). Strabo 
elsewhere also assigns it to Phrygia 
(xiv. p. 663). By Ptolemy (v. 2. 25) 
it is given to Phrygia Magna ; by 
Pliny to Lycaonia (Plin. A''. H. v. 
25) ; by Hierocles {Sytiecd. p. 25, 
ed. Parthey), and by the Notitiae 
generally (jb. p. 158, 177, I94, 7 13), 
to Pisidia ; while Eusebius (//". E. 

iv. 15) is supposed to place it in 
Pontus (see below). It stood on 
the great high road to Cappadocia, 
between Synnada and Iconium, 
and was a place of some import- 
ance (Cic. Ep. ad Div. iii. 8, xv. 
4). It was wrongly identified by 
Leake {Asia Mitior p. 58 sq) with 
Ilgun. Its true site has since been 
discovered to be the modern Ak- 
Shehr (Hamilton's Asia Minor I. 
p. 472, II. pp. 181, 184 sq). No 
mention is made elsewhere of Philo- 
melium in the earliest records of 
Christianity. A bishop of this place 
appears for the first time at the 
Council of Constantinople (a.d. 381). 
It must therefore have been owing to 
some accidental circumstance that 
on this particular occasion the Phi- 
lomelians come prominently forward. 
There is nothing in its situation or 
history which explains the fact.

is doubtless a later substitution, sug- 
gested partly by the greater promi- 
nence of Philadelphia both in itself 
and in ecclesiastical history, and 
partly by the fact that it is mentioned 
in a later chapter of this epistle 
( 19). This mention however is 
of such a kind as to show that the 
epistle could not possibly have been 
addressed to the Philadelphians 

I. Kara Tvavra to'ttoi'] Though Eu- 
sebius quotes these words of the 
letter correctly, yet he introduces 
them with the remark that the letter 
is addressed rais Kara Ylovrov eV 
KKrja-iais. Of this there is no trace 
in the letter itself, for Philomelium 
was certainly not in Pontus. Perhaps 
therefore we ought to adopt the 
conjecture of Valois and substitute 
TravTa ronov for JIovtop, though Rufi- 
nus and the Syriac version both 

read Uovtov, and so it appears in 
all the extant Greek MSS. 

There is no ground for supposing 
that any other name besides Philo- 
melium appeared in any of the copies 
of this letter which were circulated 
at the time. It was directly ad-

should probably be identified with 
' the consul Quadration ' mentioned 
by Philostratus (FzV. Sophist, ii. p. 
250) as the master of Varus. His 
name occurs in a Magnesian inscrip- 
tion C. I. 6^. 3410. He is to be dis- 
tinguished from Ouadratus the great 
builder and restorer of the city of 
Pergamum (Aristid. Op. I. p. 116), 
whose name, as Mommsen informs 
me, was not Statius, but Julius. The 
name Statius Ouadratus is also found 
elsewhere in inscriptions in other 
parts of the world (C. /. G. lyj, 5996).

12. NtKr}r?/j] The name occurs 
more than once in the inscriptions 
at Smyrna and in the immediate 
neighbourhood; Corp. Inscr. Grace. 
3148, 3359. As it is not a common 
name until a later date, this fact is 
not without its value. It was borne 
by a great sophist, a citizen of 
Smyrna, who lived in the time of 
Nerva and was highly esteemed by 
his fellow-townsmen (Philostr. Vit, 
Soph. i. 19, p. 511 sq ; i. 21, pp. 516, 
518; ii. 16, p. 596). He is styled 
' Sacerdos ' (Plin. Ep. vi. 6, [Tacit.] 
Dial. 15), which appears to be an 
official title, not a proper name. It 
is apparently this Smyrnaean, whose 
oratory is described by Automedon 
in Anthol. il. p. 210. Fabricius 

{Bibl. Grace, vil. p. 755, ed. Harles) 
would identify him with our Nicetes, 
but chronological considerations 
make this hardly possible. The 
rhetorician of this name mentioned 
by the elder Seneca {Suas. 3, Con- 
trov. i. 5, 7, 8, iv. 25, 29, v. 31, 33, 34) 
seems to have been a different per- 
son from the Smyrntean, for it is 
hardly possible that the same man 
who lived under or before Tiberius 
(Senec. Suas. 3) can have been 
flourishing still under Nerva (Phi- 
lostr. Vit. Soph. i. 20, p. 512). Pos- 
sibly however Philostratus has mis- 
named the emperor in question. In 
the Clementine fiction Nicetes and 
Aquila are the brothers of Clement 
{Clem. Horn. ii. i, etc., esp. xiii. 6, 
7). They are made bishops raiv 
Kara 'Aa-iav napoiKiav, Apost. Const. 
vii. 46. An account of all the writers 
bearing the name Nicetas or Nice- 
tes is given in Fabricius Bibl. Graec.

Apol. 34 'Dicam plane imperatorem

tators. The reading of the Greek

is a very natural but less expressive 

On the title 'Dominus' see Mar- 
quardt Rom. Alterth. II. 3, p. 304, 
note 1353 (ed. i), and esp. Mommsen 
Romisches Staatsrecht ll. p. 'j'})! sq. 
Augustus and Tiberius had declined 
to be so called; but at a later date 
emperors entertained no scruples 
on this point. On coins and docu- 
ments of Antoninus Pius for instance, 
under whom Polycarp was martyred, 
it occurs ; Eckhel Nicm. viil. p. 365, 
Orelli l7iscr. 4370 (this last belonging 
to the year 155, and therefore nearly 
synchronous with Polycarp's martyr- 
dom), passages quoted by Momm- 
sen. The title Kvptos is applied to 
the emperor in more than one ex- 
tant Smyrnsean inscription ; Eoeckh 
Corp. Inscr. Graec. 3295, 3384. 
Though it occurs in the connexion 
'dominus et deus' as early as Do- 
mitian (Suet. Doni. 13 ; comp. Mar- 
tial V. 8), it was not in itself con- 
nected with the deification of the

called in Latin either 'genius'

and caused some scandal at the 
time ; Dion Cass. xliv. 6

Under Augustus days were set apart 
for the worship of the genius of the 
emperor (see Marquardt Rom. Al- 
ter th. II. 3, p. 270). During the same 
emperor's reign we have the notice, 
Joseph. Ant. xvi. 10. 8 SuXXai'ov Tr]v

however was repudiated at first by

we hear that the name of Sejanus 
was associated with his own in it 
{ib. Iviii. 2 rrjv re TV)(r]v avroov (ofivvaav). 
At a subsequent date it became very 
common. The emperor Gaius even 
punished persons because they had 
never pronounced it; Suet. Calig. 27 
*quod numquam per genium suum 
dejerassent.' In a form of this oath 
found in two Baetican inscriptions 
of the time of Domitian {C.J.L. 11. 
1963, 1964, pp. 253, 255, 257), the 
genius of the living emperor is 
mentioned after the names of the 
deceased and deified emperors ; 'Per 
Jovem et divom Augustum et divom 
Claudium et divom Vespasianum 

Augustum et divom Titum August- 
um et genium imperatoris [Caesaris] 
Domitiani August! deosque Pena- 
tes.' Sometimes it runs 'per salu- 
tem et genium ' ; e.g. Dion Cass. 
xliv. 50 ov T7]v re vyUiav rijv re

of the mad emperor Gaius, who

(Dion Cass. lix. 14). The Christians 
were prepared to accept the first, 
per sahitem, but repudiated the se- 
cond, on the ground that the 'ge- 
nius' or 'fortune' was a demon, a 
false god, which they could only 
adjure for the purpose of exorcising; 
Tertull. Apol. 32 'sed et juramus, 
sicut non per genios Caesarum, ita 
per salutem eorum, quae est au- 
gustior omnibus geniis : nescitis 
genios daemonas dici...ceterum dae-

{Op. I. p. 278, ed. Delarue). Pliny 
{Paneg. 52) makes it a merit of 
Trajan that 'non apud genium tuum 
bonitati tuae gratias agi, sed apud 
numen lovis Optimi Maximi pate- 
ris'; and yet he himself punished 
the Bithynian Christians for repu- 
diating the cultus of this emperor 
{Ep. X. 97, quoted above on 8 
iniBixrai). This worship of the em- 
peror's genius was a natural outcome 
of Roman polytheism, for we meet 
in the inscriptions with 'genius 
oppidi, municipi, cohortis, legionis, 
populi Romani, etc.', and even pri- 
vate individuals had their 'genii.' 
But it outran all bounds, and this 
was held the most terrible of all 
oaths; Tertull. Apol. 28 'Citius 
dcnique apud vos per omnes deos 

4. av6ii(ov\ An epithet of the 
Gentiles, Acts ii. 23, i Cor. ix. 21. 
See also the antithesis of 'lovhaioi 
and TTapavoyiOi in a passage from an 
early writer in Euseb. H. E. v. 16 
quoted below, p. 383. 

7. XoiboprjiTov K.r.X.] This was 
the test applied by Pliny in the 
Bithynian persecution ; Ep. x. 97 
'praeterea maledicerent Christo...ii

(V Kvpico K.r.X. It is doubtful whether 
Polycarp means that he was a Chris- 
tian from his birth and was now 
86 years old, or that it was 86 
years since he became a Christian. 
With the reading e'xto 8ov\ev(ov (for 
dovkevoo) the former interpretation 
seems more natural, as it is also 

quam per unum genium Caesaris more probable in itself In favour 

pejeratur', Minuc. Fel. 1. c. ' et est 
eis tutius per Jovis genium pejerare 
quam regis'; see also Melito ad 
Antonin. 4 (p. 425, Otto) with Otto's 
notes, p. 464 sq. Tiberius indeed, 
when Rubrius was accused of vio- 
lating the 'numen August! ' by per- 
jury, deprecated his punishment on 
the ground that 'perinde aestiman- 
dum quam si Jovem fefellisset ; de- 
orum injurias diis curae' (Tac. A7in. 
i. 73); but this was not an insult 
offered to a living emperor. 

of the latter Halloix (l. p. 588), fol- 
lowed by others, quotes the dying 
words of Hilarion, 'Egredere, anima 
mea ; quid dubitas ? septuaginta 
prope annis servisti Christo, et mor- 
tem times?' (Hieron. Vit. Hilar. 45, 
Op. II. p. 39), spoken when he was 
in his 80th year ijb. 44). But even 
if we take the reading SowXfuco, this 
parallel only shows that Polycarp 
might have meant the 86 years to 
reckon from his conversion, not that 
he did actually mean it.

this person derived his name from

an inscription since discovered at

proximity of date (Olymp. 232 = a.d.

presided over the martyrdom of Poly- 
carp. He is evidently the same whose 
name appears in the Trallian in- 
scriptions as iiriTpoTTOs twv I,el3a(TTwv. 
Perhaps also this is the person men- 
tioned in the Anthology (11. p. 450),

and sometimes to human beings 
also, as here and in Act. Perp. et

with the death by fire. The 'confec-

the 'bestiarius.' The work of the 

'confector' began where that of the 
'bestiarius' ceased.

6. TTfpKTTfpa] Whether this word 
formed part of the original text or 
not, it must be explained by the 
belief that the human soul departed 
from the body at death in the form 
of a bird. In the case of a pure 
Christian soul, this bird would 
be a dove. So we are told of the 
martyrdom of Eulalia, Prudent. 
Peristeph. Hymn. iii. 33 sq, 

Emicat inde columba repens, 
Martyris os nive candidior 
Visa relinquere, et astra sequi ; 
Spiritus hie erat Eulaliae, 
Lacteolus, celer, innocuus... 
Vidit et ipse sateiles avem 
Feminae ob ore meare palam, 

which is an exact parallel to the inci- 
dent before us. Again we read in 
the Latin Martyrologies (see Bedae 
Op. V. p. 1087, ed. Migne) under 
Nov. I, concerning S. Benignus of 
Dijon, a reputed disciple of Polycarp, 
that at his martyrdom 'columba nivea 
de carcere Christianis aspicientibus 
ad caelos ascendit, et odor suavissi- 
mus quasi paradisi secutus est'. On

the other hand in reference to the 
soul of a rapacious and unscrupulous 
impostor, Lucian {de Morie Pefcgt: 
39), ridiculing this belief, invents the 
fiction how, when Peregrinus threw 
himself on the pyre and was burnt 
to death, a vulture rose out of the 
flames (see above, I. p. 140). It was 
perhaps to humour this superstition, 
or to emphasize the symbolism 
which it involved {Artemid. Oneir.

sage has reference more especially to 
the funeral of Severus. We have ac- 
counts also of the same ceremonial 
at the exequies of Augustus (Dion 
Cass. Ivi. 42) and of Pertinax (Dion 
Cass. Ixxiv. 4) ; comp. Justin Apo/. 
i. 21 (p. 67). 

Of all birds the dove most readily 
suggested itself as the emblem of a 
Christian soul. The image of the 
Psalmist (Iv. 6), 'O that I had wings 
like a dove, etc.', had led the way. 
The proverbial innocence of this 
bird likewise recommended it (Matt. 
X. 16; comp. Tertull. Scorp. 15 'sim- 
plices animae et solummodo colum- 
bae'). It was a common belief also 
that there was no gall in the dove 

{Horapollo i. 57), though this view 
was not taken by more learned na- 
turalists (Aristot. Hist. An. ii. 15, p. 
506, Phn. N. H. xi. 37, 74) ; and 
this point was seized upon by Chris- 
tian writers (Tertull. de Baptism. 8 
'quod etiam corporaliter ipso felle 
careat columba'; comp. Cyprian 
de Unit. Eccl. 9). Hence in the cata- 
combs we find pictures of doves with 
the legends 'Anima innocens', 'Ani- 
ma simplex', etc., and the designation 
'Palumbulus sine felle' is there given 
to the souls of little children. For 
these and similar representations in 
the catacombs, see Kraus Roma Sot- 
ierranea p. 237 sq. The caged bird 
represents the soul imprisoned in the 
body ; while the bird set free suggests 
the soul soaring heavenward. For 
the symbolism of the dove generally 
see Pitra Spicil. Solesni. il. p. 484 sq, 
Martigny Diet. Antiq. Chret. p. 162 
sq (s. V. 'Colombe'). It is not con- 
fined to Christian writers. Rabbini- 
cal commentators on Cant. i. 15, 
iv. I, V. 2, 12, vi. 9, so interpreted the 
dove; see Leyrer in Herzog Real- 
Encykl. s. v. ' Tauben in Palestina ', 
Bochart Hieroz. li. pp. 11,17. In the 
spurious Life of Polycarp, ascribed 
to Pionius, it is related (21) that at 
the time of his consecration one of

words Trepia-repa kul are wanting not 
only in all the extant Greek MSS, in 
the Latin of Rufinus, and in the 
Syriac Version, but also in writers 
like Nicephorus who borrowed from 
Eusebius. On the other hand they 
were certainly found in the arche- 
typal MS which was the progenitor of 
all other existing MSS (both Greek 
and Latin) of the Letter itself; for 
the absence of the words in two 
Latin i\iss means nothing, since these 
merely translate from Rufinus in 
this part (see above, in. p. 360). Our 
choice therefore lies between the 
authority of Eusebius and the au- 
thority of the extant form of the Acts 
of Martyrdom. In favour of the 
omission it may be urged: (i) As a 
question of internal evidence; that 
the dove seems out of place. The 
blood does its work by extinguishing 
the fire ; but nothing more is heard 
of the dove. Unlike the doves of 
Eulaha and Benignus, it does not fly 
up heavenward, as we should expect ; 
(2) As a question of external evi- 
dence; that Eusebius is in all proba- 
bility an older authority than the 
extant form of the Ac/s themselves ; 

that as he in this part generally gives 
the words of the document verbatim, 
he may be assumed to have done so 
here ; that there is no reason to sup- 
pose the dove would have been an 
offence to him, since elsewhere {H.E. 
vi. 29) he relates a somewhat similar 
portent, when Fabianus was desig- 
nated Bishop of Rome, eV fifreapov

iv e'ibeL nepicmpas Kadodov ; and lastly 
that the insertion may be explained 
by the superstition of a later age, as 
shown in the Acts of Eulalia and of 
Benignus. On the other hand, in 
favour of its retention it may be 
maintained that the text of the Acts 
is generally a safer guide than Euse- 
bius, who does not profess to give 
the document word for word, who 
omits clauses and expressions here 
and there, and whose taste might 
have been offended by this bald ma- 
terialism, just as he omits the image 
of the apros oTrrwixevos in 1 5. On 
the whole the arguments against its 
genuineness seem to predominate. 
But if it be not genuine, the alter-

native remains, that the words Trept- 
(TTipa. Kal were not a deliberate inser- 
tion but an unintentional corruption. 
On this hypothesis various conjec- 
tures have been offered ; e^rjXdfv 
TTfpl crrepua TTXrjdos Ruchat, 6^17X6' eV 
dfjKTTepa TrXfj6()s Le Moyne, and such 
like. The only emendation however 
deserving consideration is Words- 
worth's f^rjXdf nepl (TTVpaKa tt\t]6os 
'about the sword-haft' {Htppolytus 
p. 318, ed. 2), which is excellent of 
its kind and has been adopted by 
Lagarde {Rell. Jut: Eccl. Gr. p. 84), 
by Zahn, and by Funk. In this case 
the words Trepi arvpuKa may have 
become blurred in a very early copy ; 
and this illegibility would explain 
both the omission by Eusebius and 
the substitution of Ti-epto-repa koi in 
the extant form of the Acts. This 
solution however is open to the 
serious objection that a-rvpa^ else- 
where seems always to mean the 
spike of a spear and never the haft 
of a sword or dagger. Reasons are 
given in the chapter on this Letter 
in the general introduction (see above, 
I. pp. 606 sq, 643 sq) for suspecting 
that the words nepia-repa Kal were de- 

liberately added by the spurious Pio- 
nius whose name occurs below, 22.

The reason however which is there 
given for the wish of the persecutors 
to obUterate the reliques is not, as 
here, to prevent the worship of the 
martyrs, but to crush out all hope 
of a resurrection. Again the motive 
of Ignatius in entertaining this wish

MapKiavov] This is probably the 
correct reading. The change into 

MapKiavoi in one MS is explained 
by the fact that Marcion's name 
appears in the context of that same 
MS. The alteration into the more 
familiar name MdpKov in other au- 
thorities is natural enough. On the 
variations here, and on similar con- 
fusions elsewhere, see Gebhardt in 
the Zeitsch. f. Hist. Theol. 1875, 
p. 370 sq; who however adopts the 
reading Mapxtcoros. A Marcianus is 
mentioned by Eusebius H. E. v. 26 
as a person to whom Irena^us dedi- 
cated one of his treatises ; and this 
is not improbably the same man.

I. TavTa K.r.X.] Though the 
Moscow MS generally preserves the 
older and better readings, the form 
which these three paragraphs assume 
in it is evidently due to a later hand. 
This is clear (besides other indica- 
tions) from the omission of the words 
Kadws StjXcoo-o) eV rw Kadf^fjs, which 
seemed out of place when this Letter 
of the Smyrn^eans was detached 
from the Pionian Life of Polycarp 
in which it had been incorporated ; 
see the general introduction. 

5. ov] If both ov and avrov be 
retained, the former should perhaps 
be translated 'where' (i.e. in Rome). 

A redundant avrov however, following 
upon ov, would not be without many 
parallels ; see Winer Gramm. xxii. 
p. 184 sq. 

7. v ols K.r.X.] In three writings 
of Irenaeus, extant whole or in part, 
we have mention of Polycarp; (i) 
Hacr. iii. 3. 4 ; (2) Epistle to Flo7'inus 
quoted in Eus. H. E. v. 20 ; (3) 
Epistle to Victor quoted in Eus. 
H. E. v. 24. In the two former 
passages he speaks of his own con- 
nexion with Polycarp. The story of 
his encounter with Marcion is in the 
first passage.

On the Asiarchate. 

As regards the literature of this subject, it will be sufficient to 
mention here Eckhel Dodr. Nu?n. Vet. iv. p. 207 sq ; Gothofred Cod. 
Theod. vi. 3, xii. i. 103, 112, xv. 5. i, xv. 9. 2, xvi. 10 paratitl. ; Krause 
Neocoros p. 71 sq (Lips. 1844); Waddington in Lebas Voyage ArcMo- 
logique Inscr. iii. no. 885; Babington On an unpublished coin of Laodicca 
bearing the naine of an Asiarch {Numismatic Society of London, 1866); 
Marquardt De Provinciarum Romanarum Conciliis et Sacerdotibus in 
Ephemeris Epigraphica i. p. 200 sq (1872), and again Romische Staats- 
verwaltung i. p. 374 sq (1873). Further particulars relating to the 
literature will be found in Eckhel, Babington, and Marquardt. 

Under the Roman Government the principal cities of the several 
provinces were united together in confederations for certain religious 
and civil purposes, called Commune Bithyniae, Ciliciae, Gaiatiae, Pam- 
phyliae, etc. The presiding officers of these unions bore the titles, Bithy- 
niarch, Cilicarch, Galatarch, Pamphyliarch, etc., respectively. In some 
instances, as for example in Lycia^ these organizations appear to have 
existed before the establishment of the Roman supremacy, in which case 
they were merely adapted by the Romans. Of these confederations the 
most famous was the Cojnnmne Asiae, to koivSv T179 'Ao-tas, as belong- 
ing to the earliest and prerogative province ; and accordingly we hear 
much more of the Asiarchs than of the others. The earliest Asiarch 
recorded is Pythodorus, the friend of Pompeius (Strabo xiv. i. 42, p. 
649) ; the latest mention of the office as still existing is in a rescript of 
Honorius and Theodosius a.d 409 {Cod. Theod. xv. 9. 2, v. p. 438, ed. 
Gothofred). When we find Justinian speaking of the Phoenicarchs 
and Syriarchs as obsolete offices {Novell. Ixxxix. 15), it is a tolerably 
safe inference that the Asiarchate likewise had been abolished or fallen

into disuse. In the tenth century the character of the office was so 
little remembered that Constantine Porphyrogenitus identifies the Asi- 
arch with the proconsul [de Themat. i. 3 o rauTT/s [i.e. 'Ao-tas /xtKpas] 
Kparwv dvOviraTO? 'Aatap^^r^s iXeyero, Patrol. Graec. CXill. p. 80, ed. 

It was the object of these confederations, while a certain amount of 
local self-government was thus given to the provinces, to connect them 
more closely with the empire. To secure this end more effectually a 
religious bond was necessary. Hence the establishment of the worship 
of the emperor, often connected with that of Rome and sometimes with 
that of the senate. The assumption of the title Augustus was a pre- 
liminary step (Veget. ii. 5 'imperator cum Augusti nomen accepit, 
tamquam praesenti et corporali deo fidelis est praestanda devotio ') ; 
and the idea was further strengthened by the Greek rendering 2/8acrTos 
(Dion Cass. liii. 16 Avyovcrros, ws Kat TrAeioV Tt ri ko-io. dvOpioirovs (ov,

creTTTov, ttTTo Tov cre(Sdt,ia6aL ivpoafnvov). The next Stage was the erection 
of temples (o-e/^ao-Teta) and the establishment of priesthoods for the 
maintenance of this worship. A city which established such worship 
bore the title vewKopos or ' temple warden '. Proconsular Asia was one 
of the earliest provinces to adopt these rites (b.c. 19); and here they 
flourished with exceptional vigour. In six at least of the cities com- 
prised in the Commune Asiae (Smyrna, Ephesus, Pergamum, Sardes, 
Philadelphia, and Cyzicus) periodic festivals and games were held 
under the auspices of the confederation, kolvov (or kowo) 'Ao-tas eV 
'^p.vpvy, iv 'Et^eVo), iv Uepya/xw, k.t.A. ; see Marquardt Ephetneris 
Epigraphica i. p. 209, Boeckh Corp. Inscr. Graec. Index p. 43. Each 
of these had likewise its temple or temples dedicated to the worship of 
the emperors. The local chief-priest of each city was designated ac- 
cordingly, ap^iepeijs n^S 'Acrtas vawv twv [or vaoO tov\ iv ^fxvpvrj, iv

vincial chief-priest, who had the control of the whole, was styled ap^'e- 
pevs Trj<i 'Acrtas or a'p^t/uei)s toS koivov Trj% Acrtas. He IS also tO be 
identified with the 'Aa-Lapxqs, as will be shown presently. His chief 
functions were the general direction of the cultus of the emperor 
throughout the province and the superintendence and presidency of 
the festivals and games. Hence Rufinus in the account of Polycarp's

martyrdom {H. E. iv. 15) translates 'Ao-iap;!(r/s by inunerarms. Hence 
also the language in Cod. Theod. xv. 9. 2 ' Asiarchis et ceteris, quorum 
nomen festivitatis solennitas dedicavit' (a.d. 409). The expenses of 
these exhibitions fell to a considerable extent upon him, so that only 
men of substance could properly fulfil the requirements of the office 
{Cod. Theod. vi. 2. 3, xii. i. 103, xii. i. 148, xv. 5. i, xv. 9. 2, with Gotho- 
fred's notes). Hence the statement of Strabo (see above p. 383 sq), 
that the Asiarchs were frequently chosen from the citizens of Tralles on 
account of their wealth. But besides these more directly religious and 
ceremonial duties, the confederation superintended the erection of 
monuments and other public works, the imposition and collection of 
taxes for the maintenance of the temples, and the like. It was also 
the medium of communication with the emperor and the senate. As 
involving the presidency of this confederation, the Asiarchate was an 
office of great dignity and influence. After the proconsul, the Asiarch 
was probably the most important person in the province ; and his 
name, like that of the proconsul, was frequently used for marking the 
epoch on coins and in documents. An account of the steps taken for 
the purpose of electing an Asiarch by the confederation is given by 
Aristides {Or. i. p. 531 sq)'. There are grounds for thinking, as I have 
shown in the first volume (on the Date of the Martyrdom), that this 
was the very occasion on which Philip the Trallian, who presided at 
Polycarp's martyrdom, was elected (see especially i. pp. 628 sq, 665 sq). 
Without entering more fully into the duties of the Asiarch, I purpose 
discussing three points, relating to this office, which present some 
difficulty, while at the same time they affect the notices in early Christian 

1 In the first public assembly at Smyrna Asiarch from among them. But it seems 

in the beginning of the year (iaraixivov more natural to take them as meaning

(t7]v kpuavvrivTrivKoiVT^vTris' Aaias),thoxigh Lyciarch Strabo (xiv. 3. 3, p. 664 sq) 

he himself deprecated it. He continues, tells us that the representatives of the

Marquardt (7?. S. p. 370 sq) and others two, some one; and that in the session 

from these last words, that three or four (ev ry (xvpe5pl(^) the Lyciarch is first cho- 

names were submitted by the confedera- sen, then the other officers (dpx"0 of the 

tion to the proconsul, who selected the union (tou ov<7Tri/j.aTos). 


I. Identity of the Asiarch and High-priest. 

The identity of the two has been disputed by Waddington (Lebas 
Voyage Arc/icologiqtie, Inscr. iii. 885), by Babington {On an unpublished 
coin of Laodicea p. 12 sq), and by Perrot {De Galatia Provincia p. 150 
sq) ' : but Eckhel {Doctr. Num. Vet. iv. p. 208 sq) can hardly be 
claimed on this side, since he says explicitly (p. 209) 'Verisimile est, 
cum quis generatim dicitur dpxi^p^v's rrj? 'Ao-tas...tum intelligendum 
Asiarcham ' (see also p. 205), thus conceding everything for which the 
advocates of the identity contend. Notwithstanding the authority of 
such names, the facts and arguments recently adduced, more especially 
by Marquardt {Ephem. Epigr. i. p. 210 sq, Rom. Staatsv. i. p. 374 sq, 
1873), not to mention the valuable investigations of an older critic 
Gothofred {Cod. Theod. vi. 3. i, xii. i. 112, xv, 9. 2, xvi. 10 paratitlon), 
seem to place the identity beyond a doubt. It is not possible to add 
much to Marquardt' s arguments, but his position has been strengthened 
by one or two lately discovered inscriptions, and some other considera- 
tions which he has overlooked seem to favour his view. 

(i) The Asiarchate, Bithyniarchate, etc., are spoken of as the 
priesthoods or chief-priesthoods of the several provinces ; e.g. by 
Modestinus [c. a.d. 230] in the Digest, xxvii. i. 6, 14 (p. 354, ed. 
Mommsen) Wyov<; Upap-^ia [v. 1.\ olov 'Acnapx^a, BLOvviapx^oL, 
K-aTTTraooKapxta, Trape^et dXeLTOvpy-qaLav aVo i-TnrpOTrwv, tovt eoriv, ews 
av dpxi]. This same language is used respecting the apxi^pev?. Thus 
we read of Chrysanthius that he received ttJv dpxt^p^frvvqv tov rravTO'i 
Wvov<; (Eunap. Vit. Soph. p. in, quoted by Marquardt R. S. p. 374), 
while we have been told before of this same Chrysanthius that Julian 
apxiep^a [ciTreSet^e] tov re dvOpa koX ttjv yvvoLKa ttjs Ai;Stas. Again, in 
a law of Constantine {Cod. fust. v. 27. i) we find the words 'quos in 
civitatibus duumviralitas vel sacerdotii, id est Phoenicarchiae vel 
Syriarchiae, ornamenta condecorant'. Nor can there be any doubt 
that the Asiarchate is intended in the following passage from Papi- 
rv\'vci Digest. 1. 5. 8 'sedin Asia sacerdotium provinciae suscipere non 
coguntur numero liberorum quinque subnixi ; quod optimus maximus- 
que princeps noster Severus Augustus decrevit ac postea in ceteris 
provinciis servandum esse constituit'. So in like manner there can 

1 I am pleased to find that the identity ever that in the case of the smaller pro- 
of the two offices is held by Mommsen in vinces, like Galatia and Lycia, the High- 
his new volume (1885), Rom. Gesch. v. priest was distinct from the Galatarch, 
p. 319 sq, note i. He considers how- Lyciarch, etc. 


be little question that the office which Aristides {Or. i. p. 531) calls 
Trjv [(.pMcrvvqv Trjv koivyjv tt^s 'Acrias was the Asiarchate. This is the 
more evident when we compare the election which he describes with 
the account of the election of the Lyciarch given by Strabo xiv. 3. 3, 
p. 664 sq. Even in strictly Christian times we meet with a sacer- 
dotium or apxtepwcrwT/ ; and the character of the office may be inferred 
from the language of Innocent I, EpisL 23 'Neque de curialibus ali- 
quem ad ecclesiasticum ordinem venire posse, qui post baptismum 
coronati fuerint vel sacerdotiuni (quod dicitur) stistinuerint et editiones 
publicas celebraverint' (Labb. Cone. iii. p. 37, ed. Coleti), where the 
celebration of the games, which was the main function of the Asiar- 
chate, etc., is especially singled out as the chief duty of the ' so-called 
priesthood'. The religious character of the office disappeared with the 
downfall of heathendom and the establishment of Christianity; but the 
title ' high-priest ' was still continued, though the bearer of it was now 
little more than president of the games. See the references already 
given to Gothofred, especially Cod. Theod. vi. 3. i, xvi. 10 paratitl, 
where the relation of the ' priesthood ' to the games is exemplified from 
the law books. This connexion may be amply illustrated hkewise from 
the inscriptions; e.g. C. 1. G. 3422 ap;(t/)ao-a/xevov evSo^ws /xero. /ttya- 
Acov avaXtoyaarcov koI Sovra KOVTpoKVV7]yi(Tiov k.t.X., 27 1 9 dp)^LepaTvcravTO'S

parallelism more effectively :

The passages quoted show that the two names appear in the same 
connexions ; that their functions are identical ; that the exemptions 
and immunities are the same in both cases; and that generally they 
are convertible. There is indeed nothing left for the high-priest to do 
which is not already exhausted in the office of the Asiarch, and con- 
versely. The one is in all respects the double of the other. 


(ii) Another fact also indicates the identity of the two offices. 
The wives of the chief priests (apxicp^t?) were styled ' chief-priestesses ' 
(e. g. Boeckh Corp. Inscr. Graec. 3092, 3489, 3495, etc.), just as we 
have seen (p. 407) in the case of Chrysanthius that his wife shared the 
high-priestly office. In like manner the Asiarch's wife takes the title 
of her husband, C. /. G. 3324 M. Aup. Zt^Vwv. koX M. KX. '\ov\iavrj 'Ao-i- 
apX"-'- S'?- Accordingly a law of Constantine {Cod. Justin, v. 27. i ; 
see above, p. 407) forbids a 'sacerdos provinciae', i.e. a Phoenicarch, 
Syriarch, etc., to marry a slave. In the light of these facts we must 
interpret another inscription which gives the one title to the husband 
and the other to the wife, C. I. G. 3677 nXw[T]. Avp. FpaTOD '"kcriap^ov

(iii) But again ; just as there was a high-priest and high-priestess 
of the province of Asia, so there were high-priests and high-priestesses 
of the temples in each several city belonging to the confederation ;

par excellence., we meet likewise with 'Asiarchs' of the temples in par- 
ticular cities, or at least in Ephesus ; C. I. L. in. 296, 297 'Asiarch[a]

priesthood of the province and to that of a particular city (the latter 
for the second time), ap^iepeus 'Acrtas a7roS8eiyp,eVo[s] vawv Kal twv ev

And not only so, but the same person is designated by each title 
separately in two inscriptions found in the Great Theatre at Ephesus ;

Now it is inconceivable that the high-priest of a particular city in 
Asia should be called the Asiarch of that city, unless the high-priest of 
the province of Asia already bore the name of Asiarch. The narrower 
application of the title is only explicable, as an analogy derived from 
the wider. 

(iv) I have left to the last the very conclusive evidence of the 
identity of the two offices derived from the document before us, the 
Letter of the Smyrnajans itself In the body of this document ( 12) 
Philip of Tralles is called Asiarch, and as such he presides over the 
games; but in the appended chronological notice ( 21) he is styled 
High-priest (iirl dp^i-^pews ^iXimrov). By some critics, who deny the 
identity of the office implied in the two titles, this fact has been taken 
to discredit the genuineness either of the body of the document or of 
the chronological postscript, as if the two statements were inconsistent, 
or at least divergent. This position can hardly be justified in any case; 
for on any showing both parts of the document were written while the 
Asiarchate was still an existing office, and therefore the forger of either 
or both would be acquainted with the facts relating to the office. 
Indeed, reasons have been given in the first volume for believing that 
the postscript proceeded from the same hand as the body of the docu- 
ment (i. p. 626 sq). Moreover, an inscription recently discovered at 
Olympia, and quoted above (p. 384; comp. i. p. 629), shows that 
Phillip of Tralles was Asiarch about this time; and in consequence 
Lipsius {Jahrb. f. Protest. Theol. 1881, p. 575) has retracted the ob- 
jection previously urged against the genuineness of the Letter on this 
ground, and he now admits the identity of the two functions so called 
respectively. In four Trallian inscriptions again (see above, i. p. 629 
sq), belonging to the age of Antoninus Pius, this same Philippus is 
designated apxtepei's 'Ao-tas. Thus in the inscriptions, as in the Acts of 
Martyrdom, the two titles are brought into connexion. But the exact 
year of the Trallian inscriptions is not ascertained beyond a doubt. 
The point is discussed in the chapter on the Date of the Martyrdom 
in the general introduction. 

Against this identification only one argument has been adduced 
which deserves consideration. In C. I. G. 4016, 4017, there is mention 


of one T. Fl. Gaianus as dp)(Lepea tov kolvov t(2v TaXaTwv, TaXardpxrjv, 
(T^a(nocf)dvTr]v koL KTLCTTrjv ttjs p.y}Tpo7r6\e.(a<i 'AyKvpa<;, and in C. I. G. 
403 1 of one Aelius Macedon as apxi^paadfievov tov kolvov twi/ roAaraJv, 
TaXardpxrjv, o-efSaaTOcjidvTrjv Sid fiiov twv Oeoiv ^e^aaTwv. It is argued 
that as both titles, Galatarch and Chief-priest of the Galatian confederacy, 
are mentioned, they cannot designate the same office. Marquardt 
(p. 375) in answer to this objection explains dpxi^p^a tov kolvov twv 
TaXaTwv as referring to the municipal priesthood of the confederation 
in Ancyra, not to the provincial high-priesthood. But this explanation 
will hardly stand; for we should then expect some limiting words, such 
as T(jv vaiov Tc3v iv 'AyKvpa. But is there any force at all in the ob- 
jection ? It is the commonest thing in the world to accumulate titles 
referring to the same office, especially in honorific inscriptions such as 
these. Thus we say, ' Her Majesty the Queen', 'His Holiness the Pope', 
though the one title is practically a mere repetition of the other ; and 
the Romans themselves spoke of ' Impera tor... Augustus' (AuTo/cpa- 
Ta)p...2e/3acrTos), though the two terms are coextensive, and neither 
adds anything to the other. 

In the West the flamines proviiiciarum seem to have borne no 
designation corresponding to Asiarch, Galatarch, etc. ; and the assump- 
tion of such titles in Asia Minor and the East illustrates the reproach 
of Dion Chrysostom {Orai. 38, 11. p. 148), who speaking to the Nico- 
medians says that, in their childish fondness for empty decorations, the 
Greeks would condone any insult or injury for the sake of titles {6v6- 
jxaTo) and, he adds, ' If they only call you or write you down chiefs 
(et diTov vp.d<i irpwTovi rj eypa\j/av), from that day forward they can with 
impunity treat you with the greatest indignity'. These things, he 
continues, are despised by all sensible men, and excite ridicule in the 
Romans more especially'. 

1 In another passage this same rhetori- pas 6\rjs. Perhaps the simplest explana- 

cian {Orat. 35, 11. p. 66), addressing the tion of the last words is ' who bear the 

people of Celaenae in Phrygia, has Ian- names of (territories in) the two conti- 

guage which (if we could be sure of the nents throughout the West,' e.g. Hellad- 

interpretation) points definitely to the archs, Asiarchs, etc. But whatever

2. Duration of tenure. 

It is generally, though not universally, assumed that the Asiarchate 
was an annual office; and this view is adopted by Marquardt, Rom. 
Staatsverzv. i. p. 368 sq. The reasons however given for this opinion 
seem inadequate to sustain it. 

Marquardt starts from the assumption that, as the office was not for 
life, therefore it must have been annual. We are not however limited 
to this alternative. In some cases these provincial chief priests were 
certainly elected for a period of years, as will be seen presently. Again 
he alleges the example of the Tuscan and Umbrian priests who were 
elected annually (Henzen-Orelli, no. 5580). But this is not a sufficiently 
close analogy, and far truer parallels can be produced on the other side. 
Still less to the point is the case of the priest of the Ubii mentioned by 
Tacitus {Ami. i. 57), where moreover it is doubtful whether an annual 
office is intended. Nor is it correct to say that the Asiarch is the 
eponym for the year. Coins indeed are very frequently inscribed as 
struck during a particular person's Asiarchate, e.g. eni-TepTioy-AciApxcY 
(Mionnet in. p. 250); but such language is equally consistent with a 
tenure for a long period or even for life, as with an annual office; e.g. 
Wood's Ephesus Inscr. viii. 3 (p. 22), Boeckh C. I. G. 32 11. Indeed 
such expressions as Mark ii. 26 ht\ 'A/3td6ap apxiepews, Luke iii. 2 cVi 
dpxi.pews''Avva kol Kata(^a, Acts xi. 28 iirl KXavhLov, are a caution against 
any rigorous inferences from the particular expression. In the case be- 
fore us the Asiarchs are probably mentioned not for the sake of precision 
in dating, but as the chief magistrates of the confederation to which the 
cities striking the coins belonged. Again Marquardt urges that in order 
to transact its business the confederation must have met every year, 
and that therefore the president's office must have been annual (Ej>/i. 
Epigr. p. 213 sq). Here we may accept his premiss, while we reject 
his conclusion. 

On the other hand there are very good reasons for supposing that 
the term of office was longer than a year. The chief and characteristic 
function of the Asiarch was the presidency of the general festival of the 
confederation, called koivo. 'Ao-tas par excellence. This must be dis- 
tinguished from the minor festivals celebrated in the several cities of the 
confederation, Kotva 'Acrtas Iv '^ixvpvrj, kolvo. 'Acrtas ev liepydfxio, etc. Now 
it stands to reason that such a general festival must have been cele- 
brated once at least during each Asiarchate. If therefore it should 
appear that this general festival recurred at longer intervals than a year, 



the Asiarchate cannot have been an annual office. But there are good 
grounds for beUeving that it was a TrevraeTT^pts, Uke the Olympia and 
Pythia (Find. 01. iii. 38, x. 70, Nein. xi. 33), or in other words that 
there was an interval of four years between each recurrence. These 
grounds are as follows : 

(i) Evidence seems to show that these festivals were generally 
though not universally quinquennial. Suetonius {Octav. 59) speaking of 
the beginning of this cult of the emperor says, ' Provinciarum pleraeque 
super templa et aras ludos quoque quinquennales paene oppidatim con- 
stituerunt'. Accordingly we find this to have been the case in several 
places of which notices are preserved. The festival of the Commune 
Cretae is one of these ; Boeckh C. I. G. 2583 upov aywvos Trevraer-qpLKov 
Tov Koivov Twv KpT/Twv. Again, thc Zudi Augiistales at Neapolis (Naples), 
which were strictly analogous, were quinquennial, as appears from C. I. G. 
5805 VLKYjaavTi 'IraXtKa 'Fw/Aata Sf/^aora laoXvp-ina Trj<; {xy 'IraXiSos k.t.X. 
(see Boeckh's comments, in. p. 732). 

An inscription copied by Sir C Wilson in Attalia, and published 
by Prof W. M. Ramsay in the Bulletin de Correspondance Hellhiique, 
1883, VII. p. 263, is important enough in its bearing on this subject 
to deserve a place here. The words are as follows ; 

KaXTTovpi'iov KoSparor vXov AtoSwpor, vXov ^ouXt7[s] St^/xou yepoi;o"tas, 
<^t\oKatVa[pa] koX (juXoTrarpiv, lepea Sta ^lov 'ATroXXcuyos dp'^yerov Kai

Xo[i]7rovs Travras iv rfj TerpaeTta. 

The high-priesthood here mentioned is, as Prof Ramsay says, that of 
the cultus of the emperors ; but I cannot agree with him that ' the 
pentaeteric games were probably those named on a coin struck under 
Saloninus, tpos'OXT;/A7rtos ot/cov/teviKos [aycuj/]'. They would naturally be 
the KOLvd na/u,<^i>Xias, the festival of the Commune Pamphyliae, of which 
he held the high-priesthood ; unless indeed the ' Olympian sacred oecu- 
menical festival' may be identified with this. This Calpurnius then 
would be the Pamphyliarch an officer who is mentioned likewise in 
C. L G. 4340 b, Add. 

If I am right in assuming (and this is Prof Ramsay's view also) that 
this person was the chief-priest of the whole province of Pamphylia, and 
not of the particular city of Attalia, the inscription shows that the 
Pamphyliarch held office for four years, thus celebrating the great 
pentaeteric games of his Conmiune once during his term of office. It is 


reasonable to suppose (in the absence of any evidence to the contrary) 
that the same would be the case with the Asiarchs. 

(ii) The local festivals of the kolvov 'Ao-ta? in the several cities of 
the confederation were quinquennial. So C. I. G. 3674 vei/o^o-as 
Koivov 'Acrias kv Y^vtjiKia iraiZinv TrayKpaTLOv TrevTaerrjpiSi ^. 

(iii) Lastly, the festival in question is itself directly co-ordinated 
with quinquennial festivals in such a way as to leave no escape from 
the conclusion that it was one. The passages seem to have escaped 
notice, or otherwise perhaps the common opinion would have been 
different. They are found in Boeckh C. I. G. 1420 veLKija-avra rpayw-

Connected with the length of tenure is the fact that we read of 
persons holding the office more than once. Thus there are records of 
those who have been Asiarchs twice (C. /. G. 3190, 3324 Lebas and 
Waddington 158 a, Mionnet Su^J>/. vii. pp. 359, 619)', and in one case 
at least thrice (Babington /. c. pp. i, 27, 35, Mionnet iv. p. 328). 
This last case is L. ^1. Pigres on Laodicean coins, and it seems to 
stand alone ; for the other instance is a retouched piece (Mionnet vii. 
p. 358, see Babington p. 30), and appears to be incorrect. The legend 
AciApx- A on another coin (Mionnet iv. p. 128) is probably read incor- 

3. Plurality of Asiarchs. 

In Acts xix. 31 it is stated that 'certain of the Asiarchs' (nvts Sc tQ>v 
Ao-tapxwv), being friendly to S. Paul, tried to dissuade him from entering 
the theatre. Similarly we read in Aristides {Or. i. p. 518) 'an Asiarch, 
methinks, was present likewise {koX 'Aa-iapxr]':, olfxai, Trpoa-yjv).' Such 
language implies that more than a single person held the title at the 
same time. The same inference likewise has been drawn from Strabo 
XIV. p. 649, Ktti del Tivcs e^ avTrjs elaiv ol Trpwreuovres Kara rrjv lirap-^iav, 
ous 'Acriapxa? nakov(riv. Here however the inference is not certain, for 
a6i would signify ' from time to time ' ; but still the plural rtves would

not naturally be used, if only one person bore the title at any given 
time. This is explicable in two ways. 

(i) The Asiarchs, after laying down their office, still retained their 
title and formed a sort of order. There are some grounds for this 
belief. In the West this was certainly the case. The Spanish inscrip- 
tions speak of certain persons as fiaminales {C. I. L. 11. 983 'viro 
flaminali provinciae Baeticae ', ib. 4248 ' statuam inter fiaminales viros 
positam'), where the 'flamen provinciae' corresponds to the a.px'-^p^v<; rrj's 
'Ao-ta?, and therefore to the Asiarch. In like manner in Africa we read 
of the sacerdotales of the province (C. /. L. viii. 1827, 2343, 4252, 
5338) ; and the sacerdotales are frequently mentioned in the law books 
in reference to this district {Cod. Thcod. xii. i. 145, 176; xii. 5. 2; xvi. 
10. 20, etc.), though it is not always clear that these had been Jlamines. 
In Asia Minor itself too an extant inscription describes a person as 
AuKiapxtKo? (Lebas and Waddington 1224). It is not unlikely there- 
fore that, after their term of office was ended, they continued to be 
called ' Asiarchs ' by courtesy ; and this would account for the fact that 
we find the holders of other offices in so many cases designated 
Asiarchs; e.g. Wood's Ephesus Inscr. ii. 13 (p. 14) 'Apia-ToftovXov 
' A(nd^p)(ov^ ypa/x/xarea)? tov [St^/xou], tl?. vi. 3 (p. 46) ypa/AyuareiJOVTOS

Kiv^o), AaoStKci T^s 'Ao-tas, (TTpaTr]y<2, 'A(Tidp)(Yj. Accordingly we find 
persons commemorating their descent from holders of this office in a 
way which seems to indicate a permanent title ; e.g. Lebas and Wad- 
dington 158 a....ALOvvcrLOV Tov UpoKrjpvKa kol {3 Acndp^ov [Ky]o[vov], 
i.e. his father and grandfather before him were Asiarchs (comp. C. I. G. 
2463 c, 3420, 3495, 3665 Lebas and Waddington 158 a, 244). These 
facts however are not absolutely conclusive. 

(2) It has been shown already that the chief-priest of the im- 
perial worship at Ephesus was likewise called ' Asiarch ' of the 
Ephesian temples (see above, p. 409). Though no direct evidence is 
forthcoming that the chief-priests of this worship in the other cities 
belonging to the confederation were similarly styled, yet as their titles 
in other respects corresponded, there is at least a presumption that they 
would be correspondingly designated here also. 

The fact that more persons than one are called Asiarchs at the 
same time may be explained from either or both of these causes. 








FEUARDENTIUS in his notes on a passage of Irengeus {H(zr. iii. 
3. 4), where this father mentions several other letters of Polycarp 
besides the extant Epistle to the Philippians, published as fragments 
of these lost writings certain extracts which he had discovered, intro- 
ducing them with the following words ; 

'Harum [epistolarum] porro quinque non aspernanda fragmenta a me superioris 
quadragesimae tempore Virduni in quadam vetustissimis characteribus manu descripta 
super quatuor evangelistas Catena inventa, ut a Victore episcopo Capuano ante mille 
et centum annos ibidem laudantur, hoc loco inserere operae pretium visum est. 
Haec itaque ibidem leguntur; Victor episcopiis Captiae ex responsione capitulorum 
sancti Polycarpi Sinyrnensis episcopi, discipuli Joaiitiis evangelislae.' 

The fragments are then given as I have printed them below, but 
with the heading, ' Divi Polycarpi Smyrnensis episcopi et martyris 
b. Joannis evangelistae quondam discipuli responsionum fragmenta. 
Matthaeus Uominum dixisse testatur etc' (see below, p. 421). 

After the close Feuardentius adds ; 

'Haec Victor Capuanus vir Graece et Latine doctus circa annum Dom. 480 ex 
Graeco Responsionum capitulorum b. Polycarpi, quem nactus erat, codice a se 
Latina facta recensuit ; et in supra nominata Catena manuscripta, quam penes me 
habeo et, quum per typographos licebit, studiosis communicabo, citantur.' 

The Catena however was never printed, and the manuscript is lost. 

The fragments were reprinted from Feuardentius by Halloix 
{Illustr. Ecd. Orient. Script, i. p. 532 sq, Duaci 1633) and by Ussher 
{Ign. et Polyc. Mart. p. 31 sq), and have frequently been repro- 
duced by later writers. Ussher (//;. pp. 31, 72 sq ; comp. Polyc. et Ign. 
Epist. p. iv) speaks as if the Catena itself were the work of Victor of 
Capua, and this has been the language of later writers generally before 

2^ 2 


Zahn. This inference however is not justified by the statement of 
Feuardentius himself 

Pitra {Spicil. Soksw. i. p. 266 sq, Paris 1B52) added two other 
fragments also as ' ex libro Responsoruvi inscripto ' by Polycarp. He 
found them in an Expositio in Heptateuchiim by Joannes Diaconus, con- 
tained in the Paris ms 838 {Sangeri7i. 60). This John the Deacon is the 
same wlio wrote a biography of Gregory the Great and lived in the 
9th century (see i. p. 4). On investigation however we do not find any 
authority for ascribing these two fragments to Polycarp. The first, a 
comment on Gen. ii. 7, is introduced with the words 'Victor episcopus 
Capuae in libro suo Responsorum capitulo [ms capitula] vigesimo 
primo ' etc. Here Pitra boldly omits ' suo ' and on the strength of the 
fragments given by Feuardentius assigns them to this supposed work of 
Polycarp, the Responsions^ . But, if 'suo' be retained, the Responsions 
are distinctly attributed to Victor of Capua ; and a correction must be 
made accordingly, as Zahn {Prol. p. xlvii sq) has pointed out, in the 
heading of the Feuardentian fragments, which should be read ' Victor 
episcopus Capuae ex Responsorum capitulo [ ] ', where the -rum of 
' capitulorum,' whether contracted or not, is a corruption of some 
numeral ; and the words which follow, ' Sancti Polycarpi Smyrnensis 
episcopi, discipuli Joannis evangelistae ', are the heading of Victor's 
extract from his supposed Polycarp. It would indeed have been strange, 
that nothing should have been heard elsewhere of an elaborate work 
by Polycarp consisting of more than twenty-one chapters. 

The Responsions therefore were the work of Victor, and the Catena 
was compiled by some still later writer. Pitra himself (pp. liii, Iviii) 
suspects that the compiler was Joannes Diaconus, and this seems 
probable. In this Catena the Respotisions of Victor were quoted ; and 
these quotations contained extracts ascribed by Victor to Polycarp. 

Victor's work is roughly assigned, as we have seen, by Feuardentius 
to A.D. 480; and various other dates have been ascribed to this writer 
by different critics. But it appears from his epitaph, which is pre- 
served (Ughelli Italia Sacra vi. p. 306, Venet. 1720; comp. Spicil. 
Solesm. I. p. 1, De Rossi Btill. di Archeol. Crist. (1881) p. 150), that he 
died A.D. 554, having held the see thirteen years. 

For the reasons given, Pitra's fragments must be rejected at once, 
as having nothing to do with Polycarp. Nor are those published by 
Feuardentius certified on authority which is beyond question. A Catena 
is a highly precarious voucher for the authorship of an extract, the dis-

recently published volume (1884), Anal, had meanwhile pointed out the error. 


placement of names being frequent in such cases. Moreover in this 
instance Polycarp's name is only given in a quotation of a quotation. It 
is much to be regretted likewise that owing to the loss of the ms we 
cannot verify the form in which the Polycarpian extracts were quoted. 
Altogether it is extremely improbable that writings of Polycarp, which 
were unknown to Irengeus and Eusebius, should have been accessible 
to Victor. Though Irenseus, in his Letter to Florimis, speaks of letters 
which Polycarp wrote to individuals and churches (Euseb. H.E. v. 20), 
yet we may infer from his language elsewhere {Haer. iii. 3. 4), that the 
Epistle to the Philippians alone was in his hands. 

And when we turn to internal evidence, our suspicions are con- 
firmed. The words ' Legitur et in dolio etc' at the end of Ft-ogjii. 2 
obviously cannot have been written by Polycarp, and were condemned 
even by Halloix (p. 597) as an addition by a strange hand. Again the 
contents of Fragm. 3 seem to point to a later date, though remembering 
the language of Irenseus on this same subject, the characteristics of the 
four evangehsts {Haer. iii. 11. 8), we ought not to speak with too great 
confidence on this point. 


Matthaeus Dominum dixisse testatur, quod Moyses scribit Adam 
locutum fuisse hoc modo : LLoc nunc os ex ossibns vieis et caro ex came 
mea, propter hoc relinqtiet homo patrem et matrem etc. [Matt. xix. 5]. 
Sed non concordant Domini verba cum Moysis sermonibus. Quia enim 
Adam praebens ofiicium inspiratione divina prophetavit, ipse a Moyse 
hoc dixisse refertur ; Deus vero, qui per inspirationem divinam in corde 
Adam ista verba formavit, ipse pater a Domino recte locutus fuisse 
refertur. Nam et Adam hanc prophetiam protulit et pater, qui earn 
inspiravit, recte dicitur protulisse. 


Idem ad haec verba Christi : Calicem meum bibetis etc. [Matt. 
XX. 23]. 

Per huiusmodi potum significat passionem, et Jacobum quidem novis- 
simum martyrio consummandum, fratrem vero eius Joannem transiturum 
absque martyrio, quamvis et afflictiones plurimas et exsilia tolerarit, sed 
praeparatam martyrio mentem Christus martyrem iudicavit. Nam 
apostolus Paulus Quotidie, inquit, morior ; cum impossibile sit quotidie 
mori hominem ea morte qua semel vita haec finitur. Sed quoniam pro 
evangelio ad mortem iugiter erat praeparatus, se mori quotidie sub ea 


significatione testatus est. Legitur et in dolio ferventis olei pro nomine 
Christi beatus Joannes fuisse demersus. 


Idem de initio evangelii secundum Marcum. 

Rationabiliter evangelistae principiis diversis utuntur, quamvis una 
eademque evangelizandi probetur intentio. Matthaeus, ut Hebraeis 
scribens, genealogiae Christi ordinem texuit, ut ostenderet ab ea Christum 
descendisse progenie, de qua eum nasciturum universi prophetae cecine- 
rant ; Joannes autem ad Ephesum constitutus, qui legem tamquam ex 
gentibus ignorabant, a causa nostrae redemptionis evangeUi sumpsit 
exordium ; quae causa ex eo apparet, quod fihum suum Deus pro nostra 
salute voluit incarnari. Lucas vero a Zachariae sacerdotio incipit, ut 
eius filii miraculo nativitatis et tanti praedicatoris officio divinitatem 
Christi gentibus declararet. Unde et Marcus antiqua prophetici mysterii 
competentia adventui Christi declarat, ut non nova sed antiquitus 
prolata eius praedicatio probaretur vel per hoc. Evangelistis curae fuit 
eo uti prooemio, quod unusquisque iudicabat auditoribus expedire. Nihil 
ergo contrarium reperitur, ubi licet diversis scriptis ad eandem tamen 
patriam pervenitur. 


Idem in illud : Noli vocare aniicos tuos sed pauperes et dehiles etc. 
[Luke xiv. 1 2 sq]. 

Praecepit non amicos, sed infirmos quosque vocandos ad prandium. 
Quodsi claudus aut quilibet eorum sit amicus, sine dubio talis pro 
amicitia minime est rogandus, unde ipsa quasi videntur se impugnare 
mandata. Nam si non amici, sed claudi et caeci sunt invitandi, ipsosque 
quoque amicos esse contingat, nequaquam rogare debemus. Sed 
amicos arbitror intelligi hoc loco debere illos, quos mundi huius terrena 
consideratione diligimus, non pro divinae contemplationis intuitu. 
Hi sunt igitur amici relinquendi. Denique ideo debilium exempla 
proposuit, quos pro nullius possumus appetere necessitate, nisi tantum 
pro fructu retributionis aeternae. 


Idem in illud : Opus consummavi, quod dedisti mihi, 7it faciani

Quomodo opus salutis humanae adimplesse commemorat, cum

' I ^HIS document was first published by the Abbe L. Duchesne under 
"^ the title Vita Sancti Polycarpi Smyrnaeorum Episcopi, Aicctore 
Piojiio (Paris. 1881). The ms used was Paris. Bibl. Nation. 1452, of the 
loth century. I have already had occasion to mention this ms (see p. 356 
sq). It contains lives, martyrdoms, and eulogies of various saints for the 
month of February. The Life of Polycarp, which is assigned to Feb. 
23, occupies fol. 182 a 192 b. On this last-mentioned page it ceases, 
and is followed immediately by the Letter of the Smyrnceans containing 
the account of the martyrdom, 'H iKKXrjaLa tov eov 77 irapoiKovaa k.t.X. 
Some of the leaves are displaced so that they run in this order, 182, 185, 
183, 184, 187, 188, 186, 189 192. In the Catalogue (Catat. Codd. 
MSS Bibl. Reg. 11. p. 322, Paris 1740), it is wrongly entered ' Mar- 
tyrium S. Polycarpi', followed by a correct entry ' Eccles. Smyrn. 
de S. Polycarpi Martyrio Epistola' (see above, p. 356). Doubtless 
owing to this false entry it has so long eluded observation. Besides 
the editio princeps, it has been printed likewise in Funk's Patres Apo- 
stolici II. p. 315 sq (1881). Funk made use of the yet unpublished 
sheets of Duchesne's edition, before they had received the editor's last 
revision (see p. Ivii sq) ; and he was thus enabled to bring it out shortly 
after that edition had appeared. 

But, though the first publication of the Greek text is so recent, use 
had been made of the work at a much earlier date. As early as 1633, 
Halloix (///. Eccl. Orient. Script. Vit. i. p. 471 sq, Duaci) in his Latin 
life of Polycarp gave at length the substance of this document, quoting 
from time to time in his notes short passages from the original. Of his 
authorities he says ; 

'Latine nemo adhuc integre edidit; sed aliqui martyrium duntaxat, alii paucula 
quaedam ex Eusebio desumpta adjunxerunt ; sed primani ejus [Polycarpi] aetateni, 
progressum ad ordines, virtutes miraculorum nequaquam attigerunt. Quae Pioiiius 
homo Graecus admonitu divino perquisivit et perscripsit. Ilaec aulem hactenus non 


edita; sed tantum in manuscriptis codicibus conservata sunt. Quorum exemplar 
unum atque alterum nactus cum Menaeo Graecorum contuli, et quidquid utrobique ad 
praesentem vitam facere comperi, Latine reddidi atque concinnavi '. 

In his notes he speaks of ' Graecum manuscriptum ', ' Manuscriptum 
Pionii', etc, in the singular. He also treats the account of the martyr- 
dom (the Letter of the Smyrnasans) as part of the same document, 
quoting from this as 'the manuscript of Pionius', the 'manuscript Life' 
and so forth (pp. 584, 588, 591, 592, 593). Thus the notice of the date, 

fxapTvpel Se 6 /xaKaptos IIoXvKapTros fJ.rji'6<; 'EavOiKOv k.t.X. ( 2l), is quoted 

by him as occurring 'in extrema vita Graeca ms' (p. 593). Speaking of 
this Letter of the Smyrnaeans, he designates it ' epistola manuscripta 
codicis Medicaei quae extat in bibliotheca Regis Franciae' (p. 582); 
and again he writes ' in exemplari Medicaeo'. The manuscript therefore 
which Halioix used was the same with ours. The extracts indeed which 
he gives present many variations from the readings of the ms, but he is 
obviously very loose and careless in his quotations. 

Again, a few years later (a.d. 1643) ^'^ the Ada Sanctorum Jan. 26 
II. p. 695 sq, Bolland gave a Latin translation of the document, 'Vita 
Auctore Pionio, e veteri Graeco ms primum edita'. The text used is 
thus described ; 

'Eandem epistolam [Smyrnaeorum] Graecam et pleniorem e ms Bibliothecae 
Regis Christianissimi nactus erat idem Rosweydus, simulque vitae ejusdem Poly- 
carpi historiam hactenus Latinis penitus ignotam. Primus ex hoc MS nostro alioque 
Latinis litteris integram tradidit Petrus Halioix noster etc. 

The Greek copy therefore, from which Bolland translated, was a 
transcript made by Rosweyd from this same Medicean ms. It is true 
that Bolland adds, ' In Graeco codice priore loco caedis Polycarpi 
narratio, turn vita reliqua erat descripta', whereas in Paris. 1452 the Life 
comes first and the Martyrdom afterwards. But probably Rosweyd had 
transcribed them separately, so that the order in the MS was not indi- 
cated, and may even have been reversed ; and Bolland's language is a 
false inference from the opening words of the Life, 'ETraveX^wv avojTtpw, 
which he supposed to refer to a foregoing document. On this point I 
shall have to speak presently. 

The Life, as given in the extant manuscript, is evidently imperfect. 
In 3 the author promises a list of the earliest bishops of Smyrna. This 
never appears. Again in 12 he states his intention of inserting the 
Epistle to the Philippians ; but we hear nothing more of it. Again in 
20 he defers his account of Polycarp's scriptural expositions till a later 
point, but we find nothing more about them or at least nothing which 
satisfies this pledge. These omissions are explained by the fact that 


the document is obviously mutilated at the end. Likewise in the 
middle of the extant portion there is a wide lacuna (between 28, 29). 
Elsewhere also one or more words have dropped out, e.g. 5. 1. 16, 26, 
6. 1. 47, 10. 1. 15, 13. 1. 22, 15. 1. 4, 20. 1. 27, 21. 1. II, 25. 
1. 23, 29 ; while in other cases parts of words (e.g. 9. 1. 51, 17- 1. n, 
27. 1. 37, 30. 1. 16, 23) have disappeared. Perhaps also this mutilation 
may furnish the true key to the emendation of the text in other passages 
also (e.g. 2. 1. 7, 10. 1. 42, II. 1. 19, 31. 1. 4), where it has been 
corrected in some other way or left uncorrected. 

From these notices, relating to the intended insertion of documents, 
we may infer that the writer's design was to comprise in his work all the 
information w^hich he could obtain or invent respecting Polycarp, and 
thus to form a complete Corpus Poly carp iarium. The principal docu- 
ments thus incorporated would be the Letter of Polycarp to the Phi- 
lippians and the Letter of the Smyrnseans giving the account of the 
martyrdom. Each of these documents would stand in its proper chrono- 
logical place. The Epistle of Polycarp would naturally be prefaced by 
some notice of Ignatius. Not improbably the Epistle of Ignatius himself 
to Polycarp would be quoted. At all events the writer of the Life 
appears to have been acquainted with this epistle, as the coincidences of 
language show. Compare for instance 23 o-vva^Aiycrat fxoL...cL<; t6v

SmyrnEeans would follow in due course. There is little doubt that the 
form of the Letter which we possess is the same which was inserted in 
the Life. In the chapter on this document it is shown that the conclud- 
ing paragraphs, both in style and in contents, betray the same hand which 
wrote the Life (see above, i. p. 643 sq). It is sufficient here to observe 
that in the concluding paragraph ( 22) the transcriber, who calls himself 
Pionius, promises to relate 'in the sequel' (iv tw KaO^<;) how Polycarp 
himself appeared to him and revealed the whereabouts of the time- 
worn manuscript from which he copied this Letter. Obviously therefore 
something must have followed upon the Letter itself This subsequent 
matter would naturally deal with any miraculous incidents occurring 


after Polycarp's death but connected with him. It would also probably 
refer to the testimony of Irenseus respecting Polycarp, with which he may 
have been acquainted through Eusebius. The writer of the Life at all 
events shows himself elsewhere acquainted with this testimony ; for his 
language relating to Polycarp's Epistle { 1 2 ev oh koI Trpds ^LXiTnrrja-lovs 
T] iiTLa-ToXr} LKavoiTOLTr] rjv) is copied from Irenseus {Haer. iii. 3. 4 co-rt Sc koX 
liniTToXrj YloXvKapTTov Trpos <l>iAt7r7rr;o-toxJS i/cavcoraT?;). The SCribe of the 
Moscow MS (see above, p. 403) has struck out the words Ka6'ws St^Xwo-w 
Iv Tw Ka6'e^s, SO as to make the document complete in itself. At the 
same time he adds a few sentences of his own relating to Polycarp, which 
as we may infer from the similarity in the modes of expression were 
taken from the lost end of the Life. Zahn in his valuable article on the Life 
{Gottingische Gelehrte Anzeige?i, 8 Marz 1882, p. 298) calls attention to 
the probable identity of authorship, comparing iK-avws re -n-aa-av atpeaiv

eKKXr](TLaaTLKo<; Ka^oXtKos Kavwi' in 12 of the Life. Moreover the main 
incident in these supplementary sentences of the Moscow MS is a 
preternatural intimation of Polycarp's death to Irenaeus in Rome at the 
moment of its occurrence an incident which, whether true or false, 
accords well with the love of the marvellous which the author of the Life 
constantly displays. Among the subjects which would appear in the 
last part of the Life (after the Letter of the Smyrnoeans was disposed of) 
would be the deposition of the reliques, the observance of the festival, 
and the like. The author would also here redeem his promise of giving 
further information respecting the occupants of the see of Smyrna. 

Who then was the writer? The manuscript itself gives no name. 
Yet Halloix unhesitatingly speaks of it as the work of Pionius. He is 
followed hkewise by Bolland (p. 692), who interprets the opening words 
'E7raveX6u>v dvoirepw 'altius rediens, priora repetens', and accordingly 
explains them as referring to the narrative of the Martyrdom, which (as 
we have seen) he assumes \o precede the Life in the ms; 'I will return to 
an earlier point in Polycarp's history.' If these premisses were ad- 
mitted, the conclusion could hardly be questioned. But on the one 
hand the interpretation seems to be incorrect and the words are more 
naturally explained as referring to the account which immediately fol- 
lows, where the writer traces the history of Christianity in Smyrna 
farther back than Polycarp's time ' \ and on the other hand the assump- 

1 Zahn (C. G. A. 1. c. p. 291) insists the writer himself shall be retracing his 
that the word eTravipxea-dai requires that own steps. But these compounds {i-nav- 


tion that the Martyrdom preceded the Life in the ms is altogether 
mistaken. Zahn {Pair. Apost. 11. pp. 1, Hi, 166 sq, 169) is misled by 
Bolland and accepts both his false positions. To these views he still 
adheres {G. G. A. p. 290), notwithstanding the publication of the 
Greek text and the now ascertained fact that in the only known MS 
the Life precedes the Martyrdom. On the other hand Duchesne 
(p. 37) gives the right explanation, and he is followed by Funk {Fair. 
Apost. II. p. Ivi sq). The last-mentioned writer however doubts 
whether the work ought to be attributed to Pionius, but says, some- 
what inconsistently with this hesitation, ' statuendum est auctorem 
alium locum Vitae dedisse quam quern in codice obtinet.' The only 
solid ground for supposing that the Life ever came after the Martyr- 
dom was the interpretation of 'ETraveX^wv di/wrepw which he has 

But though the particular reason which led Bolland and others to 
ascribe the Life to Pionius thus disappears, I believe nevertheless that 
it was rightly so ascribed. We have lost indeed one link of connexion 
by restoring the correct interpretation of 'ETrai/eX^wv dvuirepui at the be- 
ginning of the Life, but we have found another by apprehending the 
true significance of ev tw Ka6^rj<; at the end of the Martyrdom. If my 
account of the structure of the work, when unmutilated, be substantially 
correct, the Acts of Martyrdom did not stand originally either before or 
after the Life, but were embedded in it ; and ' the sequel ' {to KaOeirj<;) 
refers to the part which followed upon the Acts. If so, the occurrence 
of the name of Pionius in the first person ('Eyto 8e TrdXtv Iltovtos) in 
this same sentence points distinctly to the authorship of the Life. 
Moreover it is shown in the discussion headed ' The true and the 
false Pionius,' in the chapter on the Smyrn^an Letter in the general 
introduction in my first volume (see i. p. 638 sq), that strong points of 
resemblance exist between the Life and this Pionian postscript to the 
Martyrdom, indicating the handiwork of the same person. 

But who is this Pionius ? Certainly not the martyr in the Decian 
persecution. The phenomena seem altogether inconsistent with so 
early a date for the work as a.d. 250. Our alternative therefore is

either a genuine writer bearing the same name but Hving at least a 
century later, or a fictitious person wearing the mask of the martyr 
Pionius and thus recommending his fiction under cover of a famous 
name. The martyr was known to have been a man of some literary 
tastes and had taken a very lively interest in matters relating to 
Polycarp. Reasons are given in the discussion on ' The true and 
the false Pionius' for adopting the latter view, as more consonant 
with the character of the work, and thus regarding Pionius as a 
pseudonym. Duchesne also (p. 9) is disposed to regard the name 
as a mask. 

Against this supposition however it is alleged that the writer uses 
language which he would have avoided if he had intended to assume 
this character. He says ( 22) that he had found the Letter of the 
Smyrnseans in a copy ' nearly worn out ' {a-x^^ov KeK/x-qKora) by time ; 
that the copy had been made by one Socrates or Isocrates from a 
transcript by Gains ; and that this transcript of Gaius was copied from 
the papers of Irenasus. It is urged that the period which elapsed 
between the death of Polycarp and the death of Pionius, having been 
five years less than a century, was not sufficient for this genealogy of 
documents (Zahn, G. G. A. p. 293 sq). This argument does not seem 
to me to have much force. The copy of Irenaeus might have been nearly 
coeval with the martyrdom; the copies of Gaius and Socrates might have 
been made at short intervals ; and thus ample time half a century at 
least would be left for the ravages of time on the last-mentioned 
copy. Moreover, forgers are apt to be blunderers. Hence it is quite 
credible that our false Pionius overlooked the date of his genuine name- 
sake, when he invented this genealogy. In the same way the false 
Ignatius {Philipp. 8), in a moment of forgetfulness, writes as from Syria 
or Palestine (see above, p. 195 sq), though the martyr whose mask he 
wears is represented at the time of writing to be in Italy. This gene- 
alogy of manuscripts therefore is no solid objection where there are 
two strong arguments on the other side ; first, the suspicious fact that 
the writer bears the name of one known to have taken an exceptional 
interest in Polycarp's martyrdom, and secondly the circumstance that he 
shows himself wholly unscrupulous in inventing imaginary documents, 
as well as fictitious history, whenever it suits his purpose. Zahn indeed 
(p. 294) lays stress on the fact that the author nowhere represents him- 
self as a distinguished person. But the MS breaks off abruptly just 
where he was beginning to speak of himself. When he came to de- 
scribe how he discovered the old copy of the Smyrnaean Letter by a 
revelation from Polycarp himself, and to speak of the commemoration 



of the martyr in later ages, then he would find his proper opportunity. 
History recorded that the true Pionius was engaged in celebrating the 
' genuinum natale ' of Polycarp when he was apprehended, carried off to 
prison, and finally put to death. Would not his false impersonator 
connect this incident with the recovery of the Acts of Martyrdom, 
which would be represented as leading to the revival of the com- 
memoration ? 

But when did this false Pionius live ? He interests himself in the 
Quartodeciman controversy, and he represents S. Paul ( 2) as teaching 
two things respecting the celebrating of Easter : (i) that it must be kept 
during the feast of unleavened bread and not outside this season, as is 
done by 'the heretics, especially the Phrygians'; and (2) that it need 
not of necessity be held on the fourteenth day. The second point is 
a protest against the Quartodecimans. As Polycarp himself was well 
known to have been a Quartodeciman, this statement could hardly have 
been made till the earlier history of the Quartodeciman controversy had 
passed out of memory. The first injunction has reference to certain 
Montanists and others in the 4th and 5th centuries, who Hke the former 
disregarded the day of the week, but unlike them put aside the Jewish 
lunar reckoning and adopted the Roman Calendar instead, celebrating 
the Passion on a fixed day in March or April, which they supposed to have 
been the actual day of the crucifixion, though differing among themselves 
in their calculations (Epiphan. Haer. 1. i, Sozom. H. E. vii. 18, 
Anon. Serm. in Fasch. 7 in Chrysost. Op. viii. 2. p. 276 : see 
Duchesne p. 10)'. This points to a time not earlier than the middle of 
the fourth century : and no notice in the work suggests a prior date. 

^ Epiphanius ascribes this practice to 
'certain others' of the Quartodecimans, 
and names viii Kal. April, (i.e. March 25) 
as the day, saying that they derive it from 
the Acts of Pilate, but adding that he 
himself has found copies of these Acts in 
which it is read xv Kal. April, (i.e. March 
18), and mentioning other points of differ- 
ence among themselves. Our extant copies 
of the Acts of Pilate give viii Kal. April, 
(see Tischendorf Act. Apocr. p. 205). 
According to Sozomen 'the Montanists 
who are called Pepuzites and Phrygians' 
adopted this principle of regulating their 
Paschal festival by the sun rather than 
the moon; but he represents them as 
beginning the year with ix Kal. April. 

(March 24) and thus arriving at viii Id. 
April. (April 6) as their Paschal Festival, 
and he states the astronomical principles 
on which they made their calculations. 

Hilgenfeld {Paschastreit p. 348 sq, 
Nov. Test, extra Can. Rec. p. 80, ed. 2) 
considers that the Trecentius, against 
whom the strictures of Peter bishop of 
Alexandria (a.d. 300-311), as quoted in 
the introduction to the Chronicoti Paschale, 
p. 4 sq (ed. Bonn.), are directed, held this 
same principle of a fixed day in the Solar 
Calendar; and this is the view adopted 
likewise by Schiirer die Passastreitigkeiten 
etc. p. 250 sq in Zeitschr. f. Hist. Theol. 
1870. But the reasons alleged are not 


It may seem strange perhaps that an author, writing after the great 
Christological disputes of the fourth and succeeding centuries had 
begun, should not indicate his views on the points of dispute. But they 
had no reference to the subject before him, and apparently he took no 
special interest in them. The author's wide departure from authentic 
history, wherever we are able to test his account of Polycarp by this 
standard, forbids us to place the work any earlier, and indeed would 
suggest a much later date, if it were possible. From this however we 
are precluded by the fact that about the year 400 the Life was known 
and accepted; for Macarius Magnes {Apocr. iii. 24) cites as authentic 
history two of the most stupendous miracles which it records, the 
parching drought relieved suddenly by a downpour of copious rain 
{ 29 31), and the instantaneous replenishment of the widow's empty 
store-houses ( 4). 

Of the locality of the writer we cannot speak with so much confi- 
dence. Yet there are noiices in the narrative which suggest that he 
lived in the neighbourhood where Polycarp's memory was especially 
revered. At all events he shows some local knowledge. Thus he 
speaks ( 3) of the 'Ephesian' gate of the city, omitting however the 
word TTvXr} and thus indicating an acquaintance with the familiar language 
of the Smyrnaeans. Again ( 20) he mentions this same gate in another 
passage, where also he calls it ' Royal ' (^ao-iAct'as) ; and he is acquainted 
with the myrtle tree growing over the grave of the martyr Thraseas hard 
by. He possesses information likewise (whether correct or not, we are 
unable to say) respecting the succession of the early bishops of Smyrna 
both before and after Polycarp ( 3, 27). He is Hkewise aware of the 
warm baths at the neighbouring city of Teos ( 25); but the name 
Lebadian (Ae^dSia) which he gives to them is not easily explained and 
may perhaps betray some confusion. On the whole I should infer that 
he was not himself a native of or resident in Smyrna, though probably 
he had a casual knowledge of the place and may have belonged to 
Proconsular Asia. The Ads of Fionms, evidently emanating from 
Smyrna itself, show a knowledge of topographical details which is much 
more striking. 

Another feature in this Life, difficult to understand under any cir- 
cumstances, is less inexplicable in a stranger than in a Smyrngean. The 
earliest authentic tradition relating to Polycarp is altogether ignored by 
our biographer. Irenaeus, the scholar of Polycarp, connects his master 
directly with the Apostle S. John, and relates more than one incident 
connected with their intercourse. He moreover states that Polycarp was 
appointed bishop by Apostles. The general tenour of early tradition 


accords with the statements of Iren^eus. But of this connexion with 
the Apostles, and especially with S. John, our biographer in the extant 
portion of the story says not a word. On the contrary he gives an 
account which is irreconcilable with it. He represents Polycarp as 
ordained deacon and priest by Bucolus his predecessor in the see, and 
consecrated bishop by the bishops of the neighbouring towns. As he 
shows some knowledge (direct or indirect) of the language of Irenaeus 
elsewhere (see above, p. 426), it is quite possible that he introduced the 
testimonies from Irenaeus, as cited by Eusebius, in the lost end of the 
work. But, if so, it is difficult to conceive how he can have reconciled 
them with his previous narrative. 

Thus the biography is altogether valueless as a contribution to our 
knowledge of Polycarp. It does not, so far as we know, rest on any 
tradition early or late, and may probably be regarded as a fiction of the 
author's own brain. It has no other value than as representing the 
opinions and practices of the latter half of the fourth century. From 
this point of view, the detailed account of Polycarp's election and con- 
secration to the bishopric has the highest interest. 

In the critical notes the MS is designated by p, while the letters 
D, F, H, stand for Duchesne, Funk, and Halloix respectively. 
Where I have hazarded a conjectural emendation of my own, it is 
marked conj.
