The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles. Edited, with a Translation,

Introduction, and Notes, by Boswell D. Hitchcock and Francis Brown. (J. C. Nimmo.)—Of the several editions of the " Teaching " none is more worthy of the student's attention than this. A very full introduction gives an account of this very remarkable work of Christian antiquity (certainly the first in intrinsic value of the sub- Apostolic writings), of the circumstances of its discovery, &c. Then follows, first, the text, with a translation on the opposite pages, and then notes. An appendix gives, among other things, a catalogue of American treatises and articles on the "Teaching." Criticism has been evidently very busy with it in the States.
