Canon Lists in the Early Church

4 Comment(s) +
Over at Thoughts on Antiquity, Ben Smith has conveniently set out some of the extant canonical lists of the early church with additional commentary on each entry. These include:

Marcionite canon.
Muratorian canon.
Origenic canon, part 1.
Origenic canon, part 2.
Eusebian canon, part 1.
Eusebian canon, part 2.
Cheltenham canon.
Apostolic Constitutions canon.
Canon of Cyril.
Canon of Athanasius.
Canon of Epiphanius.
Laodicean Synod canon.
Carthaginian Synod canon.
Claromontanus catalogue.
Stichometry of Nicephorus.


  1. The canon list in Amphilochius of Iconium, Jambi to Seleucus, deserves a place in such a list.

  2. Thanks Mike,

    There is a lot of careful discussion in these. And lots of primary texts.

  3. Gie,
    Does Amphilochius have a canon-list or a general discussion?

  4. For Amphilocius, see: http://www.bible-researcher.com/amphilocius.html
