Example text

Paul’s gospel is not a human tradition (Gal 1:11–12). What he sets forth in his Epistles are the mysteries of 37 His voluminous writings have been edited in 42 volumes by the Carthusian order under the sponsorship of Pope Leo XIII: Doctoris ecstatici D. Dionysii Cartusiani Opera Omnia in Unum Corpus Digesta ad Fidem Editionum Coloniensium (Monstrolii, 1896–1913). The edition is known as the Montreuil-Turin-Parkminster edition because it was published in those three cities. The exposition of the Pauline Epistles is printed in vol.

Paul’s converts first accepted his proclamation but then strayed from it toward Judaism or were tempted to do so by false prophets and must be recalled to the true faith. Particularly aggravating is the remark in the prologue to Romans that Paul’s converts “had been brought in to the Law and the Prophets,” which only a Marcionite would say. No one noticed this tendency in the Middle Ages and beyond. The Marcionite Prologues formed an integral part of the Vulgate Bible well into the 16th century.

The succession of King Herod Antipas (Acts 12:23) is discussed at length, using Josephus. The story of Paul in Athens (Acts 17) suggests that the solar eclipse on the day of Christ’s death was the reason for the erection of the altar “to the unknown God” and that Dionysius the Areopagite needed a healing miracle of Paul in order to be converted. Chronology is of special interest to Peter of Poitiers. Thus, Paul’s conversion is dated in the year of Jesus’ crucifixion, Peter’s tenure as bishop of Antioch is calculated at seven years and his episcopacy in Rome at twenty-five.
