On the Imitation of Christ : Four Books; A New Translation (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from On the Imitation of Christ: Four Books; A New Translation It seemed to the translator that such portions might be paraphrased in such a manner as to preserve their spirit, and yet to avoid all that could be regarded as unsuinble. This course has been attempted; at the same time the changes which have been made have been carefully noted, so that nothing may be attributed to the author, which he did not write and the reader will accordingly find all interpolations or substitutions marked with an asterisk. To take an example: the heading of Book I. Chap. Xvu. Is in the original, De Monash'cd Vitd in this edition has been substituted the title, 0 a life qf Fiay. Oi course such changes require much judgment. The manner in which the present translation has been received leads the translator to hope that his task has not been rashly executed: at all events the reader will always know when he is perusing words for which the translator, and not the author, is responsible.
