[The earliest Edition of the "Canones Apostoliei” mentioned by Fabricius, in Bibl. Græc., is that by Hegendorf, Lips. 15:24. But as there is no copy of it in the British Museum, recourse has been had to the Paris edition of 1564, which is a faith: tint repr»nt of the Paris edition of 1540, and contains, what the other wants, a Latin translation, and the Various Readings of an older Paris copy, no notice of which is elsewhere to be found ; unless it be said that the Leipsis exution hart, what was very comanonly practised at that period, anather uitle with a Paris imprint; and it was perhaps from the Par. ed. of 1554, that Coteter got tire various readings, given in his margin; unless, what is not likely, they were obtained direct from a collation of the Leipsig edition, or from the MS, of which Hegendorf had made use.

Instead of the Latin version in the ed. Par. 1554, there has been substituted the one by Dinnysius Exiyulus, as he is called, which was made about A.D. 500, asd was first printed in the Billiotheca Juris Canoniici Veteris, by Voellius and Justellus, Par. 1661, fol. from a MS, in the possession of

as , the ed. Par, 1554 has been adupted for the remainder; which may, however, be perhaps found in some of the ninnersus MSS. mentioned by Harles on Fabricius ; of which probably the most ancient are the Vatican MS. 5845, or Palatine 577, described as “pare” by Assemannus, in Bibliothee. Juris Oriental. Canonic. T. i p.

Of the Greek text of the " Canones,” the latest edition appears to be by Bernhold, Altors. 1733, 8vo., who has given a few notes to show where they do or do not agree with the injunctions of the Old and New Testament. But the inost learned Cominentary on them is by Beverige, in bis “Synodicon,” Oxon. 1672, fol. reprinted by Le Clerc, in his edition of Coteler's

Patres Sacri," Ainst. 1724, fol. while the fullest inquiry into their autiquity was made by Gluck, whose researches Harles, into whose hands the papers of Gluck were placed, has given the condensed results in his Notes on Fabricius. T. xii. p. 143--151.]
