scriptures: that . Athanasius commended his writings for the many passages thetein collected out of the prophetical, evangelical, and apostolical scriptures. They continually speak with the highest veneration for the writings of the prophets, evangelists, and apostles: and they blame those who practise any thing contrary to their authority: The epistle to the Hebrews' is quoted here very respectfully. Finally, they complain that they were called Luciferians. that Christ is their master, and his doctrine they follow: they ought therefore to be called by no other than the sacred name of Christians, as they hold nothing but what Christ taught by his apostles.
III. Beside that request, there is a book ascribed to Faustinus, Concerning the Trinity, against the Arians, in seven chapters, addressed to the empress Flaccilla, first wife of Theodosius, who died in 385.
I now transcribe below: a chapter of Gennadius, giving an account of Faustinus and Marcela linus. And I shall observe a few things in this book of Faustinus.
The writer expresseth “ the highest respect for the divine scriptures, from which alone all doctrines of religion ought to be proved. Here are quoted' the Acts of the apostles, the epistle " to the Hebrews, and the Revelation of the apostle John. Moreover Jerom, in his book against the Luciferians, quotes * the Revelation by way of proof very freely; which shews that it was received by them.

GREGORY, BISHOP OF ELVIRA.
1. As he is in Jerom's Catalogue, I add here Gregory, bishop of Illiberis or Elvira, in the province of Bætica in Spain. Jerom" says, that Gregory was still living in 392, when he wrote his Catalogue; but was of a great age. He had written several treatises in a plain style, and a good book concerning the faith, esteemed more polite than his other works.
2. Gregory is placed by Cave, as flourishing about the year 370; but Tillemont, from a story told in the Request of Faustinus and Marcellinus, concludes, he was bishop before the year 357. And indeed, if their authority may be relied upon, I should think him to have been bishop in

he flourished from 357, to the end of that age.
.. 3. It is very probable, that this Gregory was a Luciferian. In the fore-cited Request he is spoken of as a man of remarkable firmness: he alone of those who would not comply with the Arians in the time of Constantius was not banished. Again, he is spoken of as an admirable man: and he is honourably mentioned in the Rescript of Theodosius. Moreover, in ' Jerom's Chronicle he is joined with others, who never complied with the Arians.
4. Whether the book concerning the faith, mentioned by Jerom, be now extant, is somewhat doubtful. There is a tract with a like title, called > Gregory Nazianzen's 49th Oration, and usually joined also with the works of St. Ambrose; which Quesnell thinks to be the work of Gregory of Illiberis: others k say, it is not his. It is however the work of some ancient writer. Concerning this point several moderns may' be consulted.
5. I scarce need make any extracts out of this treatise. I only observe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testament are here quoted with great respect. The book of the Acts is here quoted; and here occurs the phrase, which we have sometimes observed formerly, of the Lord's scriptures; meaning thereby, more particularly, the scriptures of the New Testament.

PH@BADIUS, BISHOP OF AGEN.
1. Says Jerom in his Catalogue of Ecclesiastical Writers: Phoebadius ° bishop of Agen in Gaul, • has published a book against the Arians. He is said to have written some other small pieces, • which I have not yet seen. He is still living, at a great age.'
2. There is honourable mention made of Phæbadius by Sulpicius Severus ' in his Sacred History. The book against the Arians is still . extant. The author is placed by Cave' at the year 359, the supposed time of writing that work.
3. I need say nothing more of it, than that the author quotes very frequently the generally received books of scripture. There is supposed to be a reference to the epistle to the Hebrews, but it is not clear: a reference to 'the Revelation may be reckoned undoubted.
4. Throughout the whole work Phæbadius shews great respect for the holy scriptures. The bishops of the Nicene council, he says, first consulted the sacred volumes, and then declared their faith. He himself professeth a strong resolution, not to forsake the doctrine taught bythe prophets, the gospels, and the apostles. • Bib. des Aut. Ec. T. ii.

CAIUS MARIUS VICTORINUS AFER.
1. · Caius Marius Victorinus, á born in Africa,' says Jerom, in his Catalogue of Ecclesiastical Writers, taught rhetoric at Rome in the time of the emperor Constantius. And in his old age
embracing the Christian religion, he wrote some books against the Arians, which are so obscure, • that they are understood by the learned only. He likewise wrote Commentaries upon the apostle Paul's epistles. 2. Victorinus is mentioned by Jerom several times elsewhere. In his Chronicle he
says, that Victorinus had taught rhetoric at Rome with so much reputation, that he had the honour of a public statue, set up in Trajan's forum. In the preface to his Commentary upon the epistle to the Galatians, Jerom again speaks of the above-mentioned Commentary upon the apostle Paul; and he represents Victorinus as a very indifferent interpreter of scripture.
3. Some have thought, that Jerom studied rhetoric under Victorinus; but as Jerom says nothing of it, though he had a fair occasion, when he mentions Victorinus in his Chronicle, it is more probable, that he never was his scholar.
4. I choose to place at the bottom of the page a part of what Augustine writes concerning this illustrious convert: That' after having long been an idolater, and taught rhetoric at Rome with great applause, and had his statue erected in the Roman forum, he in his old age embraced, and made open profession of the Christian religion, at a time when the greatest part of the Roman nobility.were heathens. He particularly observes, that by reading the scriptures Victorinus had been convinced of the truth of the Christian religion. He moreover says, that? when the emperor Julian published his edict forbidding Christians to teach grammar and rhetoric, and other branches of polite literature, Victorinus shut up his school, rather than purchase a liberty of teaching by compliances unbecoming a Christian. All which Augustine had been informed of by Simplician, bishop of Milan, who was well acquainted with Victorinus, and had often seen him at Rome, and was a principal instrument of persuading him to an open profession of the Christian religion, if not of his conversion.
5. The books against the Arians, mentioned by Jerom, are still "extant. Beside which, we have also a letter or treatise against the Manichees, and some other small tracts, written in the same style, and generally reckoned works of Victorinus. And his Commentaries upon St. Paul's

epistles, upon some of them at least, are supposed to be still in being, in manuscript, in some libraries; but they have not been yet published.
6. I shall now observe a few things, chiefly taken out of the books against the Arians, which, as we now have them, are four in number.
7. Most of the books of the New Testament are here frequently quoted, particularly the Acts of the apostles, the epistle to the Hebrews, and the Revelation.
8. He several times quotes the epistle to the Ephesians, with that title.
9. He says, that ° Paul in all his epistles, does nothing else but bear testimony to Christ; and that to him alone Christ appeared after his ascension.
10. He says, that' the Holy Ghost may be not unfitly styled the mother of Jesus. He has diverse other expressions relating to the doctrine of the Trinity, which are not agreeable to the apprehensions of learned divines of late times. Nor, indeed, is he very intelligible : but he seems to say, that the Word silent is the Father, or, the will of the Father; and the word speaking, or operating, is the Son. Which may induce some to recollect what was said formerly of Sabellianism, in the chapter of Dionysius bishop of Alexandria.

APOLLINARIUS, BISHOP OF LAODICEA.
I. His time and history. II. His works, particularly his Commentaries upon the scripture, and his
writings in the defence of the Christian religion. II. His peculiar opinions in the latter part of his life. IV. His works relating to those opinions. V. Scriptures received by him. VI. His character
1. Says Jerom, in his Catalogue of Ecclesiastical Writers: “Apollinarius bishop of Laodicea in • Syria, son of a presbyter of the same name, in his younger days employed himself chiefly in
grammatical studies. Afterwards he published innumerable volumes upon the holy scriptures, • and died in the time of the emperor Theodosius. His thirty books against Porphyry are still • extant, and are esteemed the most valuable of all his works.'
Apollinarius is placed by Cavek as flourishing about the year 370; but! Tillemont thinks he was bishop of Laodicea in 362, at the latest. For certain, I think, he may be reckoned to have flourished in the time of the emperor Julian, and afterwards.
It has been questioned whether Apollinarius ever was bishop; but m Tillemont," Basnage, and some others, are clear that he obtained that dignity in the church: as is said by Jerom in the chapter just transcribed, and also in his Chronicle, and by? Rufinus in his Ecclesiastical History. He died in the reign of Theodosius, as Jerom said just now; and probably, not long

after the beginning of it, in 382, or soon after. For Epiphanius in 376 or 377, calls him · an old man, and a venerable old man: and Suidas says, that he lived in the time of Constantius, and Julian the apostate, to the reign of Theodosius the great, being contemporary with Basil and Gregory, those admirable men of Cappadocia, with whom also he was acquainted.
Apollinarius the father, as we learn from Socrates, was an Alexandrian. From thence he went to Berytus, where he taught Greek learning: after that he removed to Laodicea, and married, still continuing to teach grammar. Here likewise he was made presbyter, and his son reader; who, as we suppose, was at length ordained bishop of that city. And moreover, it is observed by ecclesiastical writers, that the elder Apollinarius and his son were both intimate with Epiphanius, an heathen sophist at Laodicea; and the son studied under him. Suidas adds, that' he was acquainted with Libanius.
II. As Jerom in the chapter already transcribed says, that Apollinarius, bishop of Laodicea, published many volumes upon the scriptures, and in another place reckons him among those who had left monuments of their diligence in studying the scriptures; I am led, agreeably to my design, to give an account of his works. Moreover, we perceive, that" Jerom, when young, often heard Apollinarius preach at Antioch; and he seems to have been then well pleased with his explications of the scriptures, though he did not approve of every thing said by him. His Apology for the Christian religion against Porphyry affords another reason, why I should give a more distinct account of this author's works, than I do of most others of so late an age.
1. The emperor Julian' in the year 362, published an edict, forbidding the Christians to teach the Greek learning, or read their authors. At* this time, says Socrates, the two Apollinarii before-mentioned were very useful to the Christians: the elder wrote a grammar in a Christian form, and put the books of Moses into heroic verse, and all the other books of the Old Testament into various kinds of metre, used by the Greek poets. The younger, who was an excellent writer, put the gospels and the apostolical doctrine, into dialogues, after the manner of Plato.
2. Sozomen, without ascribing any works to the father, says of Apollinarius of Syria, that ** employing his extensive learning and happy genius suitably to the occasion, for supplying to Christians the want of Homer, he wrote the Jewish Antiquities to the reign of Saul, in four and twenty books, giving to each book the name of a Greek letter, as Homer had done. He also, wrote comedies in imitation of Menander, tragedies in imitation of Euripides, and lyric poems after the manner of Pindar, still taking his subjects from the sacred scriptures. To these works, as well as to some other, Jerom may be supposed to refer, when he says in his Chronicle ; at " this time Apollinarius bishop of Laodicea, composes many writings relating to our religion. Among the poems of Gregory Nazianzeno is a tragedy, intitled Xp1505 wuCXwv, Christ suffering: which some suppose to have been written by Apollinarius. Others 9 think that opinion to be without foundation, and that it is neither Gregory's, nor Apollinarius's.
3. Beside these, we can trace out from ancient writers, particularly from Jerom, commentaries of Apollinarius upon most parts of scripture.
4. He wrote, as we learn from Jerom, a? Commentary upon the whole book of Psalms : I
