Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. VI:
Prefaces.: Isaiah.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Isaiah.

Addressed to Paula and Eustochium, about a.d. 393. This Preface speaks of Isaiah as using the polished diction natural to a man of rank and refinement, as an Evangelist more than a prophet, and a poet rather than a prose writer. He then reiterates his defence of his translation, saying that now, “The Jews can no longer scoff at our Churches because of the falsity of our Scriptures.”


Next: Jeremiah and Ezekiel.
