Contains translations of selections from Jerome's Apology against the Books of Rufinus where Jerome refers to his commentary on Ephesians. He begins by stating that he has used the commentaries of Origen, Didymus, and Apollinarius in composing his commentary on Ephesians. He states that one of the responsibilities of a commentator is to present the opinions of others so that the reader may decide which he thinks is correct. Jerome then cites six passages in his commentary where he has followed Origen. Five of these passages do not have parallels preserved in the Greek catena excerpts from Origen's commentary and, consequently, provide identification of five additional places where we can know that Jerome has reported Origen's views in his commentary on Ephesians.
