ΚΑΝΟΝΕΣ ΤΩΝ ΑΓΙΩΝ ΑΠΟΣΤΟΛΩΝ.
THE CANONS OF THE HOLY APOSTLES;
THE GREEK TEXT
WITH THE VARIOUS READINGS
OF LATER EDITIONS :
THE LATIN VERSION OF DIONYSIUS
EXIGUUS, MADE A.D. 500 :
fThe earliest Edition of the “Canones apostoliei” mentioned by Fabricius, in Bibl. Græc., is that by Hegendorf, Lips. 15:24. But as there is no copy of it in the British Museum, recourse has been had to the Paris edition of 1564, which is a faiti:fint repr»nt of the Paris edition of 1540, and contains, what the other wants, a Latin translation, and the Various Readings of an older Paris copy, no notice of which is elsewhere to be found ; unless it be said that the Leipsi ection haid, what was very commonly practised at that period, anather title with a Paris imprint; apd it was perhaps from the Par. ed. of 1354, that Cofeler got tire various readings, given in his margin; unless, what is not likely, they were obtained direct from a collation of the Leipsig edition, or from the MS, of which Hegendorf had made use.
Instead of the Latin version in the ed. Par. 1554, there has been substi. tuted the one by Dinnysius Exiguus, as he is called, which was made about A.D. 500, and was first printed in the Bibliotheca Juris Canonici Veteris, by Voellius and Justellus, Par. 1661, fol. from a MS. in the possession of Justellus. But as it extends only to Canon 50 inclusive, the translation of the ed. Par, 1554 has been adupted for the remainder; which may, however, be perhaps found in some of the ninnerous MSS. mentioned by Harles on Fabricius; of which probably the most ancient are the Vatican MS. 5845, or Palatine 577, described as "pure" by Assemanmis, in Bibliothee. Juris Oriental, Canonic. T. i p. .
Of the Greek text of the “ Canones," the latest edition appears to be by Bernhold, Altorf. 1733, 810., who has given a few notes to show where they do or do not agree with the injunctions of the Old and New Testament. But the inost learned Cominentary on them is by Beverige, in bis “Syno. dicon," Oxon. 1672, fol. reprinted by Le Clerc, in his edition of Coteler's “ Patres Sacri," Ainst. 1724, fol. while the fullest inquiry into their autiquity was made by Gluck, whose researches Harles, into whose hands the papers of Gluck were placed, has given the condeased results in his Notes on Fabricius, T. xii. p. 149--151.]
