The statement on page 390, that manuscripts of the Gospels written in the age of the first Christian Emperor are even now extant, is perhaps made with too little qualification. It is true that some critics ascribe both the Alexandrine and the Vatican manuscripts of the Gospels to the fourth cen. tury, in the early part of which Constantine flourished. But others, with more reason, do not give them a higher antiquity than the fifth century.
