Chapter XII.

Lucius Annæus Seneca23952395    Died 65. of Cordova, disciple of the Stoic Sotion23962396    SotionCypr. Val. Her.; Phothion fotion, fotinus Socion or Sozonis, the mss. and uncle of Lucan the Poet, was a man of most continent life, whom I should not place in the category of saints were it not that those Epistles of Paul to Seneca and Seneca23972397    and Seneca A H e a 21 10 Fabr. Val. etc.; or Seneca T 25 30 31 Her. to Paul, which are read by many, provoke me. In these, written when he was tutor of Nero and the most powerful man of that time, he says that he would like to hold such a place among his countrymen as Paul held among Christians. He was put to death by Nero two years before Peter and Paul were crowned with martyrdom.
