Description du Livre

Excerpt from The Didache: Or the Teaching of the Twelve Apostles, Translated With Notes

IN the year 1873, Philotheos Bryennios, Archbishop of Nicomedia, found among the mss. In the Jerusalem monastery of the Holy Sepulchre at Constantinople, a small, thick volume, covered with black leather, contain ing 120 leaves of vellum closely covered with Greek manuscript. The contents appeared to be all written by the same hand, and he was delighted to find, at the first glance, that they included copies of the first and second Epistles of Clement of Rome and the Epistle of Barnabas. He was so engrossed with these that he took no notice of the remaining portion of the book until 1880, when he began to read the treatise which came next to the Clementine Epistles. This was no other than the Teaching of the Twelve Apostles, and realizing at once its immense value and importance, he devoted all his spare time during the next three years to the study of it. In 1883 he published it with Prolegomena and notes written in modern Greek.
