For of one thing he took especial care, not to omit anything he had heard, and not to put anything fictitious into the statements. And he also gives another story of a woman 1 who was accused of many sins before the Lord, which is to be fount in the Gospel according to the Hebrews.
Papias thus speaks, word far word: To some of them [angels] He gave dominion over the arrangement of the world, and He commissioned them to exercise their dominion well.
And he says, immediately after this: but it happened that their arrangement came to nothing. With regard to the inspiration of the book Revelation , we deem it superfluous to add another word; for the blessed Gregory Theologus and Cyril, and even men of still older date, Papias, Irenaeus, Methodius, and Hippolytus, bore entirely satisfactory testimony to it.
