Aidanus, Finan, Colmannus miræ sanctitatis fuerunt et parsimoniæ.... Adeo autem sacerdotes erant illius temporis ab avaritia immunes, ut nec territoria nisi coacti acciperent. Hen. Huntingd. Lib. III. p. 333. Bed. Hist. Eccl. Lib. III c. 26. Icolmkill, or Iona.

Rit. says: quae adhuc pectore clausa erant. Others still make it==etiam, even. Cf. note, 19. Retractatur. Reviewed, reconsidered. Salva ratio est. The proper relation of both times is preserved, or the advantage of both is secured, as more fully explained in the next member, viz. by discussing when they are incapable of disguise, and deciding, when they are not liable to mistake.
