Excerpt from A Text-Book of the History of Doctrines, Vol. 1
All these improvements are comprised in the present revision, together with citations from other authors, and references to the more recent German, as well as English and American literature. Among the works most freely used in making these additions are Gieseler's Dogmengeschichte, 1855 Neander's Christliche Dogmen geschichte, edited by Jacobi (translated by J. E. Ryland, London, 1858) and, particularly, the second edition of Baur's Dogmen geschichte, 1858. The latter work, though affected by the theo logical prepossessions of the author, recently deceased, exhibits a thorough knowledge of the different shades of Opinion, as well as of the general characteristics of each period. The additions thus made to the Edinburgh edition, and to the text of Hagenbach, in crease the matter of the volume about one third. What is added to Hagenbach, is uniformly indicated by brackets; and this includes some references and citations by the English translator. The sign T is usually prefixed to the name of a Roman Catholic author the sign prefixed, is intended to commend the work. The Edinburgh translation has been revised throughout in some instances it was found necessary to rewrite whole sentences and even paragraphs. Those passages, too, have been translated, which were there omitted, because they were found to be of such a nature as to convey little definite meaning in translation.
