Augustine's Text of John

The chapter begins with an analysis of De consensu euangelistarum, showing that it is based on a Vulgate text-type even though Old Latin forms are found in citations out of the gospel sequence. The long primary citation of John 3 in De peccatorum meritis is also clearly Vulgate. In works against the Donatists Parmenianus and Gaudentius, as well as an anonymous Arian sermon, Augustine again shows himself to be influenced by the biblical text of his opponents. In De baptismo, his use of Cyprian's sententia episcoporum leads to the appearance of Old Latin readings.
