Excerpt from Commentaries on the Affairs of the Christians Before the Time of Constantine the Great, Vol. 2: Or, an Enlarged View of the Ecclesiastical History of the First Three Centuries; Accompanied With Copious Illustrative Notes and ReferencesIn addition to the very respectable testimony of the Reverend Henry Kett (see Preface to the former volume, p. viii.), the translator feels considerable gratification in being permitted to lay before the Reader the following extract from a letter addressed to him by his much-respected friend, Charles Butler, Esq. of Lincoln's Inn, with the depth and extent of whose researches in Ecclesiastical and Civil History, the learned world has not now to be brought acquainted."I am rejoiced at your intention of favouring us with a publication of your translation of Mosheim's Commentaries. The original work is quite familiar to me. Some years ago I read the whole of it attentively, and committed to paper the observations which occurred to me in the perusal of it. I have since very frequently consulted it. There can be no doubt of its being a work of profound and extensive erudition, and that it contains much learning both in respect to fact and deduction which is no where else to be met with. It also abounds with historical and literary anecdote In every sense it is a distinct work from the Ecclesiastical History; so that it may be deemed as necessary to the possessors of that work, as if that work had never been written. - I think your style very clear, and well suited to the work; and have no doubt but that your translation of the Commentaries will be quite as popular as Maclaine's of the General History."About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
