Excerpt

This work originates from the invitation with which the Council of Mansfield College, Oxford, honoured me in the end of July 1891, to give a course of six lectures there in May-June 1892. The opinion of Dr. Fairbairn, Dr. Sanday, and other friends encouraged me to hope that faults of execution--of which I was and am painfully conscious--did not wholly obscure a good idea in them; and it is at their advice that the present book appears. The lectures are almost entirely rewritten (except Chap. IX.), and are enlarged by the addition of Part I. and in other respects, which need not be specified; but they retain their original character as lectures, intended rather to stimulate interest and research in students than to attain scientific completeness and order of exposition. They exemplify to younger students the method of applying archæeological, topographical, and numismatic evidence to the investigation of early Christian history; and, as I always urge on my pupils, their aim is to suggest to others how to treat the subject better than I can.
