This is a claim I'd like to follow up on in connection with my stylo-
statistical work. Can anybody here direct me to an electronic copy
of Polycarp's epistle, preferably tagged, available via ftp, gopher,
or through the Web? BTW, similar staring points to Papias would also
be appreciated considering his connections to Johannine literature.
See, e.g., Old Latin Prologue to John: "Papias . . . descripsit vero
evangelium dictante Johanne recte."
