Chapter Summary

This appendix of the book The Proof from Prophecy presents Justin's Quotation Material in Irenaeus and Tertuwan. There are a few cases in which Irenaeus or Tertullian do seem to depend on Justin's source rather than on his present exposition in the Apology or the Dialogue. There are considerably more cases in which the opposite holds true. In the vast majority of cases, neither alternative can be proved: there is no need to go behind Justin's preserved works to find Irenaeus' or Tertullian's sources, nor can a direct recourse to Justin's sources be disproved. But in that case, the economy of hypothesis principle opts for restraint in supposing hypothetical sources instead of known ones.
