p. 373 Canon XV.
This age seems first to have been fixed by the Second Council of Toledo 362 (circa, a.d. 535) in its first canon.
It is curious that so learned a scholar as the late Henry Bradshaw in his article “Subdeacon” in Smith & CheethamsDictionary of Christ. Antiq. should give the date of this synod as 447. Hefele fixes it at 527 or 531. Baronius, Binius, Labbe, and many others at 531. A very ancient ms. assigns it to the year 565 of the Spanish era, i.e. 527, and this is the date Cardinal de Aguirre adopts, and is also the one given to the council by the editors of LArt de Vérifier les dates.
