About this Item: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Excerpt from Analysis of the Four Parallel Gospels Papias (I) a hearer of St. John anil a companiou of Polycaqi, os Irenreus attests, (2) and of that age as all agree; in a passage quoted by Eusebios (3) from a work now lost, expressly ascribes their respective Gospels to Matthew and Mark. Paley s Evidences, c. X. s. 6. Ikknajus saitli, Matthew, among the Jews, writ a Gospel in their own language: while Peter and Paul were preaching the Gospel at Rome, and founding a Church there. After their exit, Mark, the disciple and interpreter of Peter, delivered to us in writing the things that had been preached by Peter: and Luke, the companion of Su Paul, put down in a book the Gospel preached by him. Afterwards, John, the disciple of the Lord, publishoi a Gospel while he dwelt at Ephesus. Also, that, only four Gospols were at that time publicly read and acknowledged. Ho mentions how Matthew begins his Gospel: how Mark begins and ends his: enumerates the several passages in Luke which are not found in the other Evangelists: (4) states the design with which John composed his Gospel: and accounts for (he Doctrinal Declaration which precedes his narrative Idem c. X. s. 10. All the hooks of the New Testament were written in Greek except the Gospel of St. Matthew: who according to St, Jerome (5) first wrote in Judea, in the Hebrew language London Encyd. Bible 18?9. TEltruLLlAX, (6) and others assert that Mark was amanuensis of St. Peter who dictated his Gospel to him. Several of the ancient Heretics, received only the Gospel of St. Mark. Others, among the Catholics rejected the last twelve verses of his Gospel. Idem Mark: Ii.en.eus says that St Luke digested in writing what St. Paul preached to tho Gentiles: and Gregory Nazianzen (7) states that St. Luke wrote with the assistance of Su Paul. Idem Luke. 11 It is probable enough that the first of the Gospels, for use of Jewish converts was composed in tho Hebrew or Syriac idiom. The fact is attested by a chain of Fathers: Papias. Irenrens: Origcn: Jerome: c. Gibbon s Ded. and Fall p. 817, note e. The Greek translation only is extant. Idem p. 190, note o.

About this Item: Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Excerpt from Memoirs of Edward Gibbon, Esq.: With an Essay The story of Gibbon s life as he himself tells it was first given to the world by his friend, Lord Sheffield, who included it among the author s Miscellaneous Works in an edition published after his death. He had left six sketches of several periods of his life; he was apparently quite satisfied with none of them; they varied in form, and were written Without regard to order of time. Lord Sheffield put them together, scru pulously respecting the text, and where they were too meagre, he sup plied material from the author s journals, and himself appended the notes, signed with an S. In this edition. He continued Gibbon s life from the point at which the Memoir leaves it, up to the time of his death, and he published with it a large number of his letters, running in date from 1756 to 1793; he preferred thus to let the author, as far as possible, tell his own story.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.The Age of Enlightenment profoundly enriched religious and philosophical understanding and continues to influence present-day thinking. Works collected here include masterpieces by David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, as well as religious sermons and moral debates on the issues of the day, such as the slave trade. The Age of Reason saw conflict between Protestantism and Catholicism transformed into one between faith and logic -- a debate that continues in the twenty-first century.++++The below data was compiled from various identification fields in the bibliographic record of this title.

About this Item: HarperCollins, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition; 156/250 copies. Copy No 156 of 250 signed copies in slipcase. Would be a perfect copy except for a corner fold to the rear flap of the DJ. Signed by author on colophon page. ; 1.4 x 9 x 6.1 Inches; 384 pages; Inspired by a landmark exhibition mounted by the British Museum in 1963 to celebrate five eventful centuries of the printed word, Nicholas A. Basbanes offers a lively consideration of writings that have "made things happen" in the world, works that have both nudged the course of history and fired the imagination of countless influential people. In his fifth work to examine a specific aspect of book culture, Basbanes also asks what we can know about such figures as John Milton, Edward Gibbon, John Locke, Isaac Newton, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, John Adams, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, Henry James, Thomas Edison, Helen Keller -- even the notorious Marquis de Sade and Adolf Hitler -- by knowing what they have read. He shows how books that many of these people have consulted, in some cases annotated with their marginal notes, can offer tantalizing clues to the evolution of their character and the development of their thought. Taking the concept one step further, Basbanes profiles some of the most articulate readers of our time -- David McCullough, Harold Bloom, Robert Fagles, Robert Coles, Helen Vendler, Elaine Pagels, Daniel Aaron, Christopher Ricks, Matthew Bruccoli, and Perri Klass among them -- who discuss such relevant concepts as literary canons, classic works in translation, the timelessness of poetry, the formation of sacred texts, and the power of literature to train physicians, nurture children, and rehabilitate criminal offenders. "Basbanes has a deep and abiding passion for books -- a joyful addiction," Dan Smith wrote in the Toronto Star of Patience & Fortitude, characterizing his body of work as "part travelogue, part scholarship, and all story." The tradition continues with Every Book Its Reader.; Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 47977
