Latin Writers - Quod, Qui, Deus


This post will be updated as new information is found

There is currently no extent document prior to the 4th century that contains a clear witness for this passage in Latin.

Latin Writers, quod, "Which"​

  1. Hilary of Poitiers (c. 300-368)
  2. Rufinus of Aquileia (c. 345-411)
  3. Augustine of Hippo (c. 354-430) - Homily LXXII.3; De Natura et Gratia, 2
  4. John Cassian (c. 360-442) - Against Nestorius, 5.12. Unlike the other Latin writers, who understand Christ to be "the great mystery of godliness," Cassian's interpretation follows Greek reading as though he knew of Deus.
  5. Bede (Beda) (672-735) - In Evangelium S. Ioannis, XIV


  1. Priscillian (c. 385) – Heterodox. Quia corpus ac saguinem Christi, quod est magnum pietatis sacramentum, manifestatum in carne, justificatum in spiritu, si quis indigne sumpserit, corporis ipsius sanginisque sit reus. (Can. Ep. Pauli 42).

Incorrectly Cited​

  1. Origen of Alexandria, qui - Origen, speaking of the Word (i.e., God), writes quia (not qui) manifestus est in carne, "that He 'was manifest in the flesh'"
Writings by Tertullian, Cyprian, Lactantius, Ambrose have also been examined, but so far no references have been found.
