The Guéranger Blog

Welcome to the Gueranger Blog! You have stumbled across the notebook I use to record my thoughts as I read through Dom Prosper Gueranger's 15-volume set, The Liturgical Year. I do not have any special expertise in liturgy, but I have some general knowledge of Catholic theology and an enthusiasm for Gueranger's magnum opus. Think of it as the Liturgical Year fan site!

Polycarp in the Bible

Canisius | 26 January, 2006 20:31

I must admit that I was taken off guard when Gueranger identified Polycarp as the individual referred to in Revelation 2:8, but it makes perfect sense. I can't imagine why I haven't run across that idea. The Haydock Bible makes the same identification, although it allows for the possibility that the individual mentioned there was not Polycarp but some bishop before him.

By the way, did you know that Haydock did not write the commentaries on the New Testament in the Haydock Bible? He did the Old Testament notes, and someone else did the New Testament.
