Excerpt from Select Epistles of St. Cyprian: Treating of the Episcopate

Browne could have matched and surpassed his sonority in English, but would certainly have torn his sentences to pieces for reconstruction. Mr. Marshall had no gift of sonority, but he performed the tearing process with a deft hand, and did not often fail in the reconstruction. He allowed himself more liberties than a modern translator would take, but he produced a rendering which is unlike most modern attempts in being eminently readable.

Asked to edit in English a selection of St. Cyprian's Epistles dealing with the nature and functions of the episcopate, I resolved to make use of this translation. Nor have I dared to improve it. I have worked over it with care, noting all the translator's omissions, his sometimes generous additions, and the few cases in which he seems to have missed the true sense. The additions seldom do any, thing but illuminate the meaning of the original, though he sometimes unnecessarily accentuates the indignation of his author against schismatics - perhaps with an eye on Dis senters in the City of London {the omissions are usually a paring of redundancies. Except for the correction of obvious errors, I have left his spelling untouched, as savour ing of the time, but I have ventured for the comfort of readers to lighten his inordinately heavy punctuation. I have further compared F ell's text throughout with Hartel's, noting all important variations.
