The second passageof the florilegium to elude identification runs: vir fidelis et ardentisfidei dispensationempecuniae et cautam distributionem genus infidelitatis put at. These words have been taken from the letter which Jerome wrote to his fellow-monk Oceanus in celebration of the philanthropic bigamist Fabiola : dispensationem pecuniaeetcautam distributionem genusinfidelitatis vocabat. This time the anthologist's text is much closer to that of the original, to which he has merely prefixed a grammatical subject of suitably androcentric unspecificness: vir fidelis et ardentisfidei. Again this addition createsa fine antithesis to the succeeding infidelitatis, while the language it employs is once again characteristically Hieronymian The last text of this spicilegium to occasion perplexity is the following: non enim praeiudicata doctoris opinio, sed doctrinae ratio ponderanda est,sicut scriptum est: omnia probate, quod bonum est tenete' I Thess. Here the elusive source turns out to be the epistle in which Jerome sets out a number of rival interpretations of two Pauline texts for the Gallic monks Minervius and Alexander: nec iuxta Pythagorae discipulos praeiudicata doctoris opinio, sed doctrinae ratio ponderanda est. The anthologist has naturally omitted the disciples of Pythagoras from.
