unspecified meaning
  • His position is not quite like that of the Apostles: he is only a parson among parishioners whose lives he has to try and make better.
  • A young lady of some birth and fortune, who knelt suddenly down on a brick floor by the side of a sick laborer and prayed fervidly as if she thought herself living in the time of the Apostles—who had strange whims of fasting like a Papist, and of sitting up at night to read old theological books!

  • There are no more uses of "apostle" in the book.
