ΚΑΝΟΝΕΣ ΤΩΝ ΑΓΙΩΝ ΑΠΟΣΤΟΛΩΝ.
CANONES SANCTORUM APOSTOLORUM.
THE CANONS OF
THE HOLY APOSTLES;
THE GREEK TEXT
AS ORIGINALLY PRINTED IN 1540,
WITH THE VARIOUS READINGS
THE LATIN VERSION OF DIONYSIUS
AND A NEW
[The earliest Edition of the "Canones Apostolici" mentioned by Fabricius, in Bibl. Græc., is that by Hegendorf, Lips. 1524. But as there is no copy of it in the British Museum, recourse has been had to the Paris edition of 1554, which is a faithful reprint 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 Leipsig ecution had, what was very commonly practised at that period, another title with a Paris imprint; and it was perhaps from the Par. ed. of 1554, that Coteler got the 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 substituted the one by Dionysius 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 adopted 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 Assemannus, 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, 8vo., 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 most learned Commentary on them is by Beverige, in his "Synodicon," Oxon. 1672, fol. reprinted by Le Clerc, in his edition of Coteler's "Patres Sacri," Amst. 1724, fol. while the fullest inquiry into their antiquity was made by Gluck, whose researches Harles, into whose hands the papers of Gluck were placed, has given the condensed results in his Notes on Fabricius. T. xii. p. 148-151.]
