About this Item

Quarto. XL, 572, XXX, 656, XXXVI, 549, [4]pp. Contemporary 3/4 crushed morocco over marbled paper covered boards, with gold lettering and tooling on spines. Top edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Folded frontispiece map. Lectures on the History of the Jewish Church contains lectures Arthur Penrhyn Stanley delivered as the chair of ecclesiastical history at the University of Oxford. He divides the history of the Jewish faith into three great periods: each subdivided into lesser portions, each with its own peculiar characteristics, and each terminated by a signal catastrophe. The first volume, reaching back for its prelude into the Patriarchal age, commences with the Exodus, and then, passing through the stages of the Desert, the Conquest, and the Settlement in Palestine, ends with the destruction of the Sanctuary at Shiloh and the absorption of the ancient and primitive state of society into the new institution of the Monarchy. It covers the history extending from Abraham to Samuel. The second volume covers the whole history of the Monarchy. It begins with the first rise of the institution at the close of the aristocracy or oligarchy of the Judges. It includes the Empire of David and Solomon dividing itself into the two separate Northern and Southern kingdoms and terminates in the overthrow of Jerusalem and the Temple by the Chaldean armies. It covers the rise and fall of the tribe of Judah. The third volume begins in the period of captivity. It includes the Exile, the Return, and the successive periods of Persian, Grecian, and Roman dominion. It is marked by the rise of the tribe of Levi in the Maccabean dynasty; by the growth of the Jewish colonies in Egypt, Babylonia, and the West; and, lastly and chiefly, by the last and greatest development of the Prophetic Spirit, out of which rose the Christian Church, and the consequent expansion of the Jewish religion into a higher region; while at the same time the dissolution of the existing Church and Commonwealth of Judea was brought about by the destruction of Jerusalem and of the Temple in the war of Titus and by the final extinction of the national independence in the war of Hadrian. This work is complete with its 5 maps (including 3 folded), and 1 in-text plan. Moderate and sporadic rubbing along edges of bindings. Ex-library stamps at lower margin of each title page (University of Toledo Libraries). Bindings in overall good, interior in good+ to very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 38614
