Mistranslation in tract XXIX on John, para. 5

The Latin reads: "Lumen ergo quod non ex lumine, et Lumen aequale quod ex lumine, simul unum Lumen, non duo lumina." The translation erroneously adds a "not" where there should not be one: "The Light then which is not from Light, and the equal Light which is _not_ from Light, are together one Light not two Lights."

The second of those three "not"s should not be there.

[Mary said,] "Do whatever he tells you." (John 2:5)
