, translated by Benjamin Plummer Pratten
|The Teaching of Addaeus the Apostle→|
From the homily about the town of Antioch.
To Simon was allotted Rome, and to John Ephesus; to Thomas India, and to Addæus the country of the Assyrians. And, when they were sent each one of them to the district which had been allotted to him, they devoted themselves to bring the several countries to discipleship.
- From Cod. Add. 14,590, of the eighth or ninth century.
- [A note of the Middle Age. The reverse is taught in the Scriptures, but even Hebrew Christians slurred the name of Paul.]
- This is probably the correct reading: the printed text means “among the Assyrians.”—Tr.
- Lit. “set their faces.”—Tr.
