PREFACE TO THE THIRD EDITION.
The following pages were compiled a few years ago, principally for the convenience of candidates for the Ordinary B.A. Degree in the University of Cambridge. They have been found useful by other students, and are now read in many schools, as well as in the Universities. The present edition
has been improved in several details, and has also
been slightly extended.
Foundation of the Christian Church. Effusion of the Holy
Discipline in the Primitive Church..
The Rite of Baptism. Stephen, the first Christian Martyr.
First dispersion of the Believers..
Philip the Deacon-Simon Magus
