In the art. by Bishop Hicks cited s.v. δόγμα, three instances of this verb are cited from the inscrr.—CIG 2485.47 (B.C. 105) τὰ ] πε [ρὶ τῶν συνθηκῶν ?] δογματισθέντα of Senatus consulta, CIG 3524.54 (time of Augustus) πὰρ ταῖς δεδογματισμέναις αὔτῳ τεἵμαις, and CIG 5785.13 ἐὰν δόξῃ τῇ ἀγάρρει [οὕτως ], καθὼς καὶ ὑπὲρ φρητάρχου καὶ χαλκολόγων δογματί [ζε ]ται. In the LXX δογματίζω is used several times of issuing a decree, and twice at least (2 Maccabees 10:8; 2 Maccabees 15:36) of religious enactments. As against AV and RV, the verb may possibly be passive in Colossians 2:20—";Why do you allow yourselves to be overridden by Jewish enactments?"; The Polybian compound δογματοποιέω (i. 81. 4) is found Syll 653.57 (B.C. 91) οἱ ἄρχοντες καὶ οἱ σύνεδροι δογματοποιείσθωσαν ὅτι κτλ.
