Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol IV:
5. Five Books in Reply to Marcion.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

5. Five Books in Reply to Marcion.

(Author Uncertain.)

Deleting the indictment, bids be washed!

The whole man, then, believes; the whole is washed;

315 Rich in the wealth of the celestial hall.

355 Bearing to God, unto the highest stars.

400 He burst, a wondrous monster! on our view.

With our whole heart after eternal life.

(N.B.-It has been impossible to note the changes which I have had to make in the text of the Latin. In some cases they will suggest themselves to any scholar who may compare the translation with the original; and in others I must be content to await a more fitting opportunity, if such ever arise, for discussing them.)
