Moses Stuart (1780-1852) American Hebraist & Biblical scholar, professor of sacred literature in Andover Theological Seminary 1810-1848. "His first literary work was a Hebrew grammar, which was circulated among the students in manuscript because it was not possible to print Hebrew in this country at that time; when it was finally printed (1813), he was compelled himself to set up part of the type for lack of compositors equipped for the task; later editions long remained the textbooks for American students. To America he brought the knowledge of what was being done for Biblical scholarship in Germany, and thus founded in America the scientific study of Biblical archeology and linguistics. For his services in this department he has been called `the father of American Biblical literature.'"--New Schaff-Herzog Ency Rel. Knowl., XI:116. In a series of elaborate commentaries he showed how German scholarship had revolutionized the field of Biblical studies. "The history of scriptural interpretation presents few, if any, phenomena more peculiar than those which have been exhibited, by some mode in which parts of the books of Daniel and of the Revelation have been explained, by a large class of English and American expositors... I shall attempt no more than to give some Hints, addressed to the consideration of the Christian public, in respect to some two or three of the principle

Redford Ashfield Watkinson, died June 9, 1876, was married to a Laura Ferris Gaul in New York City and appears to have lived his life in the city and thereabouts and according to his preface was apparently not clergy. "But Daniel and Ezekiel had open vision. The future history of the world is portrayed in pictures, and we are taught practically, what Jesus preached when he came, that there is no limit to the power of righteous man in prayer, as Daniel by his perseverance received all the knowledge he prayed for, and overcame the world and its dangers. We trace throughout this book the knowledge of the ancient zodiacal and astronomical systems as applied to religion, the general science of which is lost; the externals of that religion Jesus preached to set aside, yet his disciples retain that which he discarded, and that which he preached, the spirit of the ancient religion, they discard."--from last page of text, p.324.
