Part 32

Two Notes by the American Editor.

————————————

P. 609. The author’s elucidation of the figure, anthropopathy, is an enlargement of Clement’s casual remarks in the Stromata (cap. xvi. vol. ii. p. 363, this series). Consult On the Figurative Language of Holy Scripture, Jones of Nayland, Works, vol. iv. ed. 1801.

P. 630, note 5. Compare Waterland, vol. ii. p. 210, ed. 1823; also Life of Bishop Bull, by Robert Nelson, p.260. For the extraordinary history of Bull’s work in France, see the said Life, pp. 327–333. For Petavius, Waterland, vol. ii. p. 277, and Bull’s Life, p.243. Petavius seems to have had a crafty design to sustain the Council of Trent by arguing that the Council of Nicæa also made new dogmas. Bull proves that it only bore witness to the old. To the honour of the assembled bishops of the Gallican Church, they sustained Bull against the Jesuit.
