139 Viderit.

140 Extranea.

141 Although Tertullian calls her "anus," St. Luke's word is gunh/ not grau=j.

142 Instrui potest.

143 Unde destruitur.

144 Idque dumtaxat.

145 Jam hinc.

146 Primo omnium demissum. Literally, "sent down." See on this procession of the Son of God to create the world, Bishop Bull's Defence of the Nicene Creed,etc., by the translator of this work, pp. 445 and following.

147 Ereptum, having been taken away.

148 Vicariam. [Scott's Christian Life, Vol. III. p. 64.]

149 [See Bunsen (Hippol. III. Notes, etc., p. 129.) for a castigated form of the Latin Creed, as used in Rom. Observe it lacks the word Catholic. But a much better study of these formulas may be found in Dupin's comparative Table. First Cent. pp. 9-12.]

150 Omnem libidinem effundas, "pour out the whole desire for."

151 Doctor, literally, "teacher." See Eph. iv. 11; also above; chap. iii. p. 244.

152 This seems to be the more probably meaning of novissime in this rather obscure sentence. Oehler treats it adverbially as "postremo," and refers to a similar use of the word below in chap. xxx. Dr. Routh (and, after him, the translator in The Library of the Fathers, Tertullian, p. 448) makes the word a noun, "thou newest of novices," and refers to Tertullian's work, against Praxeas, chap. xxvii., for a like use. This seems to us too harsh for the present context.

173 Scilicet.

174 [See Marcion, B. I. Cap. xxii. infra, note.]

175 Obtendunt.

176 Audacia.

177 De Scripturis. But as this preposition is often the sign of the instrument in Tertullian, this phrase may mean "out of," or "by means of the Scriptures." See the last chapter.

179 Constitutionis, "prima causarum conflictio,"-a term of the law courts.
