Memoirs of Edessa And Other Ancient Syriac Documents.: Part VIII
From the homily about the town of Antioch. 2956
To Simon was allotted Rome, 2957 and to John Ephesus; to Thomas India, and to Addæus the country of the Assyrians. 2958 And, when they were sent each one of them to the district which had been allotted to him, they devoted themselves 2959 to bring the several countries to discipleship.
From Cod. Add. 14,590, of the eighth or ninth century.656:2957
[A note of the Middle Age. The reverse is taught in the Scriptures, but even Hebrew Christians slurred the name of Paul.]656:2958
This is probably the correct reading: the printed text means “among the Assyrians.”—Tr.656:2959
Lit. “set their faces.”—Tr.
