Excerpt from Improvement Era, Vol 12 Organ of the Seventies and the Young Mens Mutual Improvement Associations November, 1908I have here only made a nosegay of culled owers, and have brought noth ing of my own but the thread that ties them together montaigne.In the author s article, The Closing Years of St Paul s Life in Rome, which appeared in the improvement era, Vol X, Nos 5 to 11 inclusive, an attempt was made to depict something of the life of this great Apostle of the Gentiles during his two imprison ments in Rome, and also to describe to some extent such portions of the Eternal City as must have been familiar to him during his sojourn there It is now proposed to prosecute the theme of his residence in that city, by taking up, as far as the material to hand will permit, the subject of his Christian companions at those periods The writer would, however, here wish to say that In presenting the events of St Paul s life, both in the article above alluded to as well as in the present one, he makes no claim what ever to originality Indeed, one cannot be expected to originate history, and as in the former article so also in this one, he has confined himself to a compilation of facts and information which have been culled from such sources as he has had access to, and to this end use has been made of some of those works of studious historical writers, which have already been published to the world.The two concluding verses of the Acts of the Apostles, in the New Testament, inform us that Paul, while at Rome during his first imprisonment, was permitted to dwell in his own hired house, and to receive all who came to him, and that be there preached the kingdom of God, and taught those things which concerned the Lord Jesus Christ with all confidence, no man forbidding him Of his further life and work there is no direct record in the Scriptures, but, as pointed out by Dr Macduff in his book, St Paul in Rome, it is evident from the closing chapter of the Apostle s epistle to the Romans, wherein he mentions by name no less than twenty six Christian brethren, and at the same time makes reference to many other Saints, that as far back as A D 60 there was the nucleus of a ourishing Church within the city walls Two years later, when St Paul was brought into that city as a chained prisoner, Christian brethren went out to meet him, as we know, to Appii Forum and the Three Taverns acts, 28.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at www.forgottenbooks.comThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
