>The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Second Series, Volume 14, page 307,
>Canon 24 "Excursus on the Minor Orders of the Early Church," speaks
>about special church buildings existing as early as the second century.
>It speaks of minister assistants who were forerunners of the special
>door keepers being necessary and even being considered "holy" along with
>the church buildings since about 225 A.D. 


Good to hear from you. I was looking at this quotation and noticed that 
the part about 225 AD was in parenthesis as if added by one of many 
editors. Do you know if it was in the original manuscripts?
