TEXTS & TRANSLATIONS
Hägg H. F.
Now this work of mine in writing is not artfully
constructed for display; but my memoranda are stored up against old age, as a
remedy against forgetfulness, truly an image and outline of those vigorous and
animated discourses which I was privileged to hear, and of blessed and truly
remarkable men. Of these the one, in Greece, an Ionic; the other in Magna Græcia:
the first of these from Cœle-Syria, the second from Egypt, and others in the
East. The one was born in the land of Assyria, and the other a Hebrew in
Palestine. When I came upon the last (he was the first in power), having tracked
him out concealed in Egypt, I found rest. He, the true, the Sicilian bee,
gathering the spoil of the flowers of the prophetic and apostolic meadow,
engendered in the souls of his hearers a deathless element of knowledge.
