Excerpt from The Epistle to the Romans: With Notes Critical and Practical
Of the three great writers ﬂourishing at the close of the second century - Irenaeus, Clement of Alexandria, and Tertullian - I find that, in an index of quotations I have now before me, Irenaeus quotes this Epistle alone above 70 times, Clement of Alexandria 114 times, and Tertullian 142 (and this in an index to only a part of his works).
This Epistle is also cited in the letter of the Churches of Lyons and Vienna, in the words (quoting from the letter as given in Eusebius), These coming in close conﬂict endured every Species of reproach and torture. Esteeming what was deemed great but little, they hastened to Christ, showing in reality that the suffer ings of this time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us.
