Re: Identify this text: Acta Theodati Ancyrani

the Greek of "protectorem" is προστάτην, (accusative) which means "head person, leader" at a gathering or in an organization, not protector as we think in English. Theodotus, who is being tortured, was called the leader of the "Galileans" by the Roman Theotecnus. After all the townspeople come to se...

Re: Identify this text: Acta Theodati Ancyrani

I was searching under the spelling in the OP. Yes, the TLG has three works by Theodotus Ancyranus (i.e. of Ankara). Can you type out exactly what Ory writes in his citation? As Huon says, vol. 77 of PG has some stuff by Theodotus, including about a half page of fragments of his work on the Acta Apos...

Re: Identify this text: Acta Theodati Ancyrani

I see no such title in the TLG, and a search of JSTOR does not turn it up (nor anything when searching for the complex of these three words not in a unitary string).

Does Ory give a citation from Migne's Patrologia Graeca?

Ancyra is the modern Ankara in Turkey.

Re: Sabazius cult

Hi Peter, all the plays you mention are lost to the Byzantine manuscript traditions of Greek dramatists. What survives of the plays you mention are only fragments, i.e. quotations in later writers (I don't know about scraps of papyrus). For fragments of Attic comedy, the standard collection is Kasse...

Re: Jesus, Archelaus, and the Parable of the Minas

Yes, very interesting. But can't an inerrantist just say that Luke remembers and uses the actual events? Or better, that Jesus knew of the actual career of Archelaus and alluded to it? After all, Jesus is making the a fortiori argument that if an unjust king knows how to reward his useful servants, ...

Ha ha, I tricked you into reading this shit. I guess that's why you're known as outhouse. Now how about getting an education.

Re: Unicode Greek Fathers

Thanks guys, I've seen the Khazarzar links. As Peter says, it appears that Contra Iulianum bks. 3-10 are not online, at least, on any site we've discussed.

Re: Unicode Greek Fathers

Sorry, guys, this is making me feel very old.

Peter, as far as I can see, your links only provide Contra Iulianum books 1-2 from the Sources Chretiennes edition of 1985 and fragments from parts of the work beyond book 10.
