Hi, everybody:
I would appreciate any help in translating the following sentence (PL 129, 572 B):
Timor ergo est opinari, quod in ejus proprie non est sermonibus scriptum, et moliri adversarios propriae opinionis tanquam non bonae ad velamentum illius viri litteras faciendum, secundum utrumque has praeter illius intentionem falso referentes.
Many thanks in advance.

Here's ...
