Φιλοσοφίαν δε ου την Στωικήν λέγω, ουδε την Πλατωνικήν, και την Επικουρείον τε και 'Αριστοτελικήν· αλλ' όσα είρηται παρ' εκάστη των αιρισίων τούτων καλώς, δικαιοσύνης μετά ευσεβούς επιστήμης εκδιδάσκοντα, τούτο σύμπαν το ΕΚΛΕΚΤΙΚΟΝ φιλοσοφίαν φήμι.

erudite and valuable performance, which, though it has for so long a time passed the press, will probably be new to the greater part of our readers. The volumes issue from the University press; much to the honour of the learned Delegates, to whose readiness in undertaking the publication the Author acknowledges his obligations. But, notwithstanding the high auspices under which they appear, we cannot learn that they have hitherto obtained the share of attention from the public, to which they are intrinsically entitled; owing, perhaps, to their not having been made known by the usual expedients adopted by London publishers.
The “ Harmonia Evangelica” and the three volumes of Preliminary Dissertations, compose one connected work. In the former, the evangelical history is distributed into five parts, comprising as many chronological divisions : these are subdivided into sections, the text of the Evangelists being arranged in two or more parallel columns.
