I have a copy. Only Augustine is mentioned. He treats v.39 under the
merciful works of the unbaptized who are seen as not losing their reward and
of more profit than those who bear the name of Christ but fail to live
accordingly (Harmony of the Gospels, 4.6); v.39b: on the breadth of
catholicity whereby "something catholic" may be found outside the church
catholic (On Baptism, Against the Donatists, 7.39 (36)). V.39: don't forbid
him: advising Dardanus not to be disturbed by some who outside the church do
some works of power, but to let be as Christ did in this case since the
unknown exorcist's works testified to his name; A. also cites the angel
appearing to Cornelius (Letter, to Dardanus, 187.36); finally, he apparently
appeals to this passage when warning against judgmental excess by those
intent on severe disciplinary principles; such folk are blind and separated
from the unity of Christ (Faith and Works 4.6).
