THE COMING OF THE SAINTS

“ Ut quod enucleatius ostendendum opere prætium estimo multipharias evangelistarum cathegorias quibus in hoc ipsum consonant, enarrare ; ac deinde que post Salvatoris ascensionem circa ejus amicos gesta sunt sicut nobis patres nostri tradiderunt, et in suis etiam reliquerunt scriptis stilo veraci disserere."-From the Prologus of the Manuscript of Rabanus. See Frontispiece.

[Free Translation] " In order that the facts might be set forth more thoroughly, I have thought it useful to unite in one narrative the divers accounts of the evangelists, and then to faithfully add those events affecting these friends of our Saviour which took place after the Ascension, according as our fathers have told us and according to the accounts they have left for us in their writings.”
