  1. Possible error on Polycarp card. From what I understand, Polycarp told the story that John the Evangelist had fled from the baths when he heard Cerinthus was there. Is it clear that Polycarp was at the baths with John?

  2. Good catch, Caelius! “Compose telegraphic biographical phrases in haste, repent at leisure.”

    “He it was who, coming to Rome in the time of Anicetus caused many to turn away from the aforesaid heretics to the Church of God, proclaiming that he had received this one and sole truth from the apostles,-that, namely, which is handed down by the Church. There are also those who heard from him that John, the disciple of the Lord, going to bathe at Ephesus, and perceiving Cerinthus within, rushed out of the bath-house without bathing, exclaiming, ‘Let us fly, lest even the bath-house fall down, because Cerinthus, the enemy of the truth, is within.’ ”
