[TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]) and in using the conjunction when (otav, whenever), Paul does not comment one way or the other on how many Gentiles there are who do this or how often, only that it happens.

According to the so-called 'Fitzgerald's Canon' Aristotle writes anarthrous
[GREEK TEXT OMITTED] when he is referring to the historical Socrates and [GREEK TEXT OMITTED] when he is referring to the Platonic Socrates of the dialogues.(8) This distinction is of obvious importance both for the interpretation of Aristotle himself and for what he has to say about his predecessors.
