Council of Laodicea (about A.D. 363).

The authenticity of paragraph 60 below has been doubted by many scholars because it is absent from various manuscripts containing the decrees of the regional (Galatian) Council of Laodicea. The list may have been added later. On the omission of Revelation see Cyril of Jerusalem. We give the Greek text according to B.F. Westcott, A General Survey of the History of the Canon of the New Testament (5th ed. Edinburgh, 1881).
