Letter To Bishop Ellicott, In Reply To His Pamphlet.

[1] Preliminary Statement.

[2] The Bishop's pamphlet was anticipated and effectually disposed of, three weeks before it appeared, by the Reviewer's Third Article.

[3] Bp. Ellicott remonstrated with for his unfair method of procedure.

[4] (Which be 'the recognized principles of Textual Criticism'?—a question asked in passing.)

[5] Bp. Ellicott's and the Reviewer's respective methods, contrasted.

[6] Bp. Ellicott in May 1870, and in May 1882.

[7] 'The fabric of modern Textual Criticism' (1831-81) rests on an insecure basis.

[8] Bp. Ellicott's strange notions about the 'Textus Receptus.'

[9] The Reviewer vindicates himself against Bp. Ellicott's misconceptions.

[10] Analysis of contents of Bp. Ellicott's pamphlet.

[11] Bp. Ellicott's account of the 'Textus Receptus.'

[12] Bp. Ellicott derives his estimate of the 'Textus Receptus' from Westcott and Hart's fable of a 'Syrian Text.'

[13] Bp. Ellicott has completely adopted Westcott and Hort's Theory.

[14] The Question modestly proposed,—Whether Bp. Ellicott's adoption of Westcott and Hort's 'new Textual Theory' does not amount to (what lawyers call) 'Conspiracy'?

[15] Proofs that the Revisers have outrageously exceeded the Instructions they received from the Convocation of the Southern Province.

[16] The calamity of the 'New Greek Text' traced to its source.

[17] Bp. Ellicott's defence of the 'New Greek Text,' in sixteen particulars, examined.

[18] Bp. Ellicott's claim that the Revisers were guided by 'the consentient testimony of the most ancient Authorities,' —disproved by an appeal to their handling of S. Luke ii. 14 and of S. Mark xvi. 9-20. The self-same claim,—(namely, of abiding by the verdict of Catholic Antiquity,)—vindicated, on the contrary, for the 'Quarterly Reviewer.'

[19] 'GOD was manifested in the flesh' Shown To Be The True Reading Of 1 Timothy III. 16.
