A Vulgate –

A canon that included the Apocalypse.  Before ChrysostomJerome, and Augustine, it was not clear if the Apocalypse belonged in the bible.  At the beginning of the fifth century these three were major players in the Church and the bible was being defined.  It is clear now.

A Commentary By Augustine 

A bible that includes the Apocalypse Augustine comments on the Apocalypse after Jerome includes it in the Vulgate while Chrysostom was in Ephesus before he was exiled from Constantinople.  Three major players in the early Church.  Chrysostom, the greatest of them all, could not protect himself from the corruption in the Church.  Jerome and Augustine somehow survived like their works.

A Turn Of The Fifth Century 

A major player.  Jerome was finishing his Vulgate and Augustine was starting his City of God.  Chrysostom was in Ephesus replacing seven corrupt bishops.  The Church was in good hands.  Jerome and Augustine exchanged letters.  Chrysostom, who was exiled, exchanged letters with the pope.  The Apocalypse was in the bible.  These dots can now be connected.
