[Footnote W:  Summary.  Two questions were propounded by Jerome.  The first was whether it is a sin to learn the learning and knowledge of the pagans, and Jerome answers that it is not, and proves this by the example of four youths, Daniel, Ananias, Azarias, Misael, and by the example of Moses.  For these, had they known it to be a sin would not have acquired the learning.  For they did so in order to convince unbelievers.  Otherwise they would have been exposed to ridicule if, when they were disputing with these unbelievers about their dogmas, they were found to know nothing about them.  The second question was, whether it is a sin to cite secular laws in preaching or in discussion.  And he replies that it is not, because it is necessary to prove that those things which the sacred writers have said are contained in the books of the heathen.]

[Footnote X:  Dan.  I.]

[Footnote Y:  Summary.  It was reported to Eugene at his Synod that in certain regions there were no teachers to instruct others in the liberal arts, and therefore he enjoined it upon all the bishops to establish teachers in suitable places to teach others daily in liberal doctrines.]
