Addressee: Damasus
Date: c. 379-381
Earliest ms.: Cologne, Germany: Dom, 35 (Darmst. 2031), between folios 5-50. 8-9th century. (Lambert, I: p. 432)

Notes: Pierre Nautin has shown that this letter was probably composed in 387, much later than Damasus’ death, just like Ep. 35 and 36 (see notes there).
