About this Item

Sole edition. William Cureton (1808?64) was keeper of manuscripts at the British Museum when it acquired a large collection of Syriac manuscripts from the Nitrian monasteries. Cureton claimed that the "Epistles of St. Ignatius" (pub. 1845), discovered in the Nitrian collection, constituted his only genuine writings. DNB describes the controversy that followed: "Christopher Wordsworth, afterwards bishop of Lincoln, Lee, and Bunsen supported Cureton, while Baur, Jacobson, and others opposed him. Cureton himself replied to Wordsworth in a calm and convincing manner in his ?Vindici? Ignatian?,? 1846, and Lipsius afterwards confirmed his view. The latest verdict, however, that of Dr. Lightfoot, bishop of Durham, has been given decisively against the position taken by Cureton." 8vo. [2], 87, [1], xxiv, [1 (adv.)] pp. 19th-century German boards covered with black mottled paper; title gilt-stamped on a red leather spine label; chipping on head and base of spine, with small chip off top of title label; abraded. Shallow chip on fore-margin of pp. xxii?xxiv. Ex-library with bookplate on front pastedown, call number in pencil on verso of title-page, shelf label on front cover (call number blacked out).
