65 The Hague, Scheurler, 1715. Let me give the title of this rare book more fully, thus: S. Irenaei Fragmenta Anecdota, etc., quae illustravit, denique Liturgia Graeca Jo. Ern. Grabii, et dissertatione de praejudiciis theologicis auxit Christoph. Matth. Pfaffius. Of whom see Lardner, Credib., i. 17. See vol. i. p. 574, note 5.
66 London, Hatchards, 1870. Valuable for its study of the "Autun Inscription."
1 [A Lavabo: he prepares himself by the prayer for purification.]
2 [Here is a token of theological but legitimate interpolation.]
3 [On the lawful and unlawful additions to these liturgies, see Hickes' Christian Priesthood (Oxford, 1847), p. 151.]
4 This is addressed to the priest. Some translate, "O Lord, bless us." [This latter is the more primitive idea.]
5 [The Lesser Entrance with the Holy Gospels.]
6 [The Theotoce or Deipara. Of course, added after the Council of Chalcedon.]
7 [See a specimen of the unlimited capacity for extension of these prayers, in vol. v. p. 412, Elucidation VI., this series.]
8 [At great length. Cf. Justin Martyr, vol. i. p. 186, this series.]
9 [The reading of the Scriptures in the common tongue is a very precious part of the daily offices in the East.]
10 [Frequent Amens are to be supposed.]
11 [Here there is an evident interpolation, not Mariolatrous, yet not primitive, as follows:]- The Priest. Commemorating with all the holy and just, our all-holy, pure, most glorious Lady, the God-mother, and ever-virgin Mary, let us devote ourselves, and one another, and our whole life, to Christ our God. The People. To Thee, Lord.
