2 Messrs. Wagner and Haarhoff, in the November number of the C.R., ingeniously suggest that the passage means ‘compels them to confess the incurring of atonements which a man on earth … has put off’; but this idiomatic use of the perfect participle and a noun is scarcely possible with such a governing verb as distulit. The meaning of the verb is incompatible with the use of this idiom.

1 C.R. LXIV., pp. 5, 170, 171.
