Romans, Epistle to the, was written by St. Paul, and is of d ictrinal importance. Although it has been doubted whether the Epistle was of a piece, or a patchwork of different letters, it is now generally agreed that it is homogeneous. It is thought to have been written from Corinth about the year 58 A.D. The first part is doctrinal, and the latter deals with practical matters. Many commentaries upon it have been written, one of the best known English ones being Jowett's.
