Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about Eusebius, who is not an impartial historian, is rather anxious to draw a colored image of Papias and his concerns. Eusebius, however, who asked only to the tradition that was behind Papias, only an interest in making a distinction between the apostles and their disciples on the one hand and the poor Papias with its modest intelligence and its terrible misunderstanding of the common apostolic tradition had on the other hand. Therefore, he stressed from the preface of Papias all that had nothing to do with this tradition, and we must assume that this is a question of the most important and longest part. If we were in his possession, then we would have the opportunity to see exactly what he has designed and the way in which he did so. The original text of the chapter is in German.
