Excerpt: ... INTRODUCTORY ESSAY. CHAPTER I. ON THE DEFINITION OF THE PARABLE. rPHOSE writers who have had occasion to define a parable--have found it no easy task to give such a satisfying definition as should omit none of its distinctive marks, and yet at the same time should include nothing that was superfluous and merely accidental. Rather than attempt to add another to the many definitions already given, f I will seek to note Hapafidrj, from irapafiaWfiv, projicere, objicere, i. e. rl run, to put forth one thing before or beside another; and it is assumed, when wapaBofi is used for parable, though not necessarily included in the word, that the purpose for which they are set side by side is, that they may be compared one with the other; thus Polyb., L i. c. 2. § 2, Tiapaj3orj Kai aiyKpurit. That this is not necessarily included is clear, not only from the derivation, but from the fact that the word itself and the whole family of cognate words, as irapd/SoXos, irapafioas, parabolanus, are used in altogether a different sense, yet one growing out of the same root, in which the notion of putting forth is retained, but it is no longer for the purpose of comparison, which is only the accident, not of the essence of the word. Thus irapa/SoXoy, qui objicit se prsesentissimo vita; periculo, one who exposes his life, as those at Alexandria called parabolani, because they buried infected corpses.--The chief Latin writers are not agreed in their rendering of the word. Cicero (De Inv. Rhet., 1. i. c. 30) represents it by collatio; Seneca (Ep. 59) by imago; Quintilian (Inst., 5. 11. 8) by similitudo. t Many from the Greek Fathers are to be found in Suiceb's Thes., s.v. irapafioij. Jerome, on Mark i v., defines it thus: Sermonem utilem, sub idonea figura. expressum, et in ...
