The dates of several of the Epistles have been much
controverted. According to Dr. Lardner, the Second Epistle
to Timothy was written by Paul, during his Jlrst imprison-
ment at Rome ; but Michaelis, Rosenmuller, Macknight,
Paley, and other judicious critics, maintain that it was writ

ten during the apostle's second imprisonment, and but little
before he suffered martyrdom.

Many learned critics suppose that the First .Epistle to
Timothy i and the Epistle to Titus, were written as late as
the year 64 or 65.

Thirteen of the Epistles were avowedly written by St.
Paul ; but the Epistle to the Hebrews, which is ascribed to
him by Dr. Lardner, is anonymous, and the question re
specting the author of it has been much controverted. The
prevailing opinion, however, in the Christian church, has
been, that it was written by Paul ; and this opinion is sup-
ported by a majority of modern critics.
