This is Volume 1 of 3 volumes. In 1780, the most famous clergyman in the world (Martin Madan) published a book which shook the Christian world. In the book he discussed polygamy and monogamy in great detail and defended polygamy. This is the first volume of that book. It contains one of the most comprehensive discussions of polygamy you will ever read. Because of the publication of this book, the so called men of God in seminaries have erased Martin Madan from their accounts of the great evangelists, philanthropists, and composers of the Eighteenth Century. You may now read what has been censored for the last 228 years. This book covers the subjects of Marriage, Adultery, Whoredom, Polygamy, Fornication, Divorce; With many other Incidental Matters; particularly including An Examination of the Principles and Tendency of Stat. 26 Geo. II c. 33 commonly called The Marriage Act. Printed for J. Dodsley M.DCC.LXXXI#13; This is the first printing of this book in over 228 years!

About the Author:

At the time the Reverend Martin Madan penned this Treatise On Female Ruin, or Thelyphthora, as he called it, he was the most famous clergyman in all of Christendom. He'd entered the gospel ministry as a philanthropist, some thirty-four years before this publication, with the founding of the Lock Hospital, in London. It was the first hospital of its kind, dedicated exclusively to the treatment of women with venereal disease. To this day, such hospitals are called "lock hospitals" in honor of that first institution. The staff of physicians treated the patients' physical ailments while the Reverend Madan attended to their spiritual needs. It was not long before the need for a chapel became apparent and an eight hundred seat chapel was erected with funds raised by Reverend Madan. Madan's friend, George Frideric Handel, the famous composer of The Messiah, contributed his talents at one such fund raiser. Reverend Martin Madan would become famous for his own concerts at the Lock performed every Sunday evening. Chapel Street in London is named after the Chapel at the Lock. Madan became the primary representative of Evangelicalism from its infancy. By the time the chapel had been erected, Madan was already a famous defender of the Evangelical cause for his Exhortatory Address to the Brethren in the Faith of Christ. Madan continued serving the Evangelical cause with his Letters to Joseph Priestley and provided a much needed criticism of the English system of justice with his Thoughts on Executive Justice. He served as Chaplain at the Lock till the day of his death; Forty one years of service to the outcast of London.

Book Description Born Again Publishing, Inc., United States, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This is the first republication of Volume 1 of a rare three volume set of books favoring polygamy. In 1781, when this book was first published, the Reverend Martin Madan was the most famous clergyman in all the world. His Chapel at the Lock Hospital was renowned for its Sunday night concerts and his hymnal was full of majestic songs of worship. He was the most prolific living composer of sacred music and had long been the standard bearer for the Evangelicals. Madan's pen had always been free of mercenary interests since he'd been blessed with a great inheritance and yet this rich man had spent the last thirty-five years of his life ministering to the least beloved of society, the disease ridden prostitutes of the Lock Hospital. The front cover features a portrait of Lock Hospital as it appeared in the 18th century. It was built with funds raised by Martin Madan. Madan was godfather to the famed hymn writer, Charles Wesley and was himself the most prolific hymn composer of his day. This is Volume 1 - In Print Again for the First Time in over 228 years.
