"He was full of enthusiasm for the Great Awakening, and for the New Light theology inaugurated by Jonathan Edwards, which had been the occasion of the revival, since it enabled the preacher to call men to repentance, as the older Calvinism had not. In this vein he preached with fervor, cogency, and success, first to his own parish, and from 1742 on, from place to place in and around Connecticut for part of the year, during several years... Settling down at the close of the revival he bagan writing in defense of this new theology... Young men came to him to study for the ministry, and a sort of theological seminary grew up in this tiny backwwods settlement... He was a striking example of bold independent thinking in early New England."--Dictionary of American Biography, II:165. We offer the First Edition of his An Essay on the Nature and Glory of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A few quotes from the book: "Section VI. Vindictive Justice an amiable Perfection the Diety; a Beauty in the Divine Character. Vindictive Justice is that Perfection in the Divine Nature, whereby God is inclined to punish Sin according to it's Desert...God's giving his Son to die in our Stead, to redeem us from the Curse of the Law, as led some to think, that God is not inclinded to punish Sinc according to it's Desert: whereas his Inclination to punish Sin according to it's Desert, induced him to give his Son to die in our Stead."--p.95. "Section XI. The Nature of Divine Illumination... To see the Holy Beauty of God's moral Character, to see the Beauty of Holiness, to have Holiness appear beautiful and seem lovely to the Soul, is of the same Nature as to love Holiness; but to love Holiness, is Holiness it self."--pp.201, 205-206.

With a handsome folding map of ancient Israel, 21.5 x 48.5cm. Tears repaired with archival rag paper. It is placed between pages 162 & 163 in the final pagination, following the alphabetical key to the map and just before Hiller's 5 page commentary on the map.

Five versions in parallel columns. Only one German version of the N.T. Apocrypha. The Jewish version of the Old Testament is by Josef Witzenhausen, rather than Athias--see the British Museum Catalog & the Jewish Encyclopedia article on Athias. Darlow & Moule ##4227, "This edition of the whole Bible embodies four principal German versions, viz. those of Ulenberg (Catholic), Luther, Piscator (Reformed) and Athias-Reitz."

Johann Otto Glüsing, the editor and compiler of the Biblia Pentalpa, was also the editor of Jakob Böhme's works and the founder of the ascetic 'Angelbrothers' society. "Glüsing was a key part of a group of separatists and spiritualists who gathered in Altona (a hotbed of Spinozists, Mennonites, radical Pietists and Jews) in the early years of the eighteenth century. The Biblia Pentapla represented, for Glüsing, an entirely new direction for the German Bible... Because, in Glüsing's words, 'different German translators...have different dialects,' the Biblia Pentapla would provide all Germans with access to all the all the translations... The side-by-side placement of representative biblical texts was to serve, then, both as an ecumenical bridge between readers, giving them a common language of religions, and a means to unify a Bible divide by centuries of confessional strife... On the one hand, the Biblia Pentapla--like the venerable scholarly tradition of the polyglot Bible--used techniques of accumulation to weave a web fine enough to capture God's Word. As such, it was linked with the formal conventions of biblical scholarship as it developed in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (though unlike the Complutensian or Walton's English Polyglot, the Biblia Pentapla was, to my knowledge, the first attempt to put this scholarly practice entirely into the vernacular domain). On the other hand, the Biblia Pentapla offered a passage to God opened by a single translator--Johann Heinrich Reitz--who, with washed hands and baptized by the Holy Spirit, presented humanity the exact essence of His Word. Reitz's translation guaranteed this access through its fidelity to the original manuscripts. It was a formal effort to re-create in their perfection the original manuscripts of the Bible, and more specifically the New Testament, by an obsessive insistence on literal translation. I will call these two different methods scholarly and linguistic objectivism. Both methods were key to the radical Pietist project to replace theology--long monopolized by orthodoxy--with a text whose meaning was perfectly reproduced for the reader. The history of the post-theological Bible and, indeed, the Enlightenment Bible more generally must therefore start here, at the far fringes of the radical religious underground inhabiting the early eighteenth century."

"The year 1703 was a bad one for orthodox guardians of the Luther Bible. 'I can easily imagine that it will not please everyone,' Caspar Triller laconically commented, and indeed his 1703 New Testament translation pleased almost no one... And 1703's second irritant--the New Testament of Johann Heinrich Reitz, featured translator of Glüsing's Biblia Pentapla--fared no better. Orthodox theologians accused the new translator of a swarm of more or less mortal heresies. Indifferentism, naturalism, fanaticism, Socinianism, Arianism, Nestorianism, acephalism, crypto-calvinism: the list went on. The invective was fierce, but the threat was apparently real. For Triller and Reitz represented the nightmare of orthodoxy: the latter once a follower of Pietists Theodor Untereyck and Philip Spener, now a confirmed spiritualist... And if Triller's work fell onto largely deaf ears, Reitz's was received with applause, at least in some circles, and went through at least four editions by 1738, much to the dismay of the Leipzig book commission."--Jonathan Sheehan: The Enlightment Bible: Translation, Scholarship, Culture. pp.62-65.

We are pleased to offer the New Testament volume of the Biblia Pentapla. It also contains the N.T. Apocrypha in just one translation, which is followed by the Reitz's 3 page "Erläuterungen."

Matthaeus Christoph Pfaff(1686-1760) successor to Jager as chancellor at the Univ. of Tübingen. He was pietistic in "both his understanding of theological method and of the purpose of theology... Pfaff was at least intellectually on the side of the developing Pietistic Movement and for that reason helped to make the Stift at Tübingen its theological center."--Stoeffler: Ger. Piet., pp.93-94. This work known as Pfaffischen Bibelwerks, is Luther's translation, prefaces & comments, and with "new prefaces, summaries, extended parallels, comments and spiritual applications, also prayers at each chapter...edited under the direction of Chr. M. Pfaff." We offer the New Testament volumes (vols 7 & 8) of the larger work of 9 vols (index v.9). The New Testament volumes were edited by Joh. Chr. Klemmen.

Bernard Gilpin (1517-1583) "English clergyman, called 'The Apostle of the North'... He was educated at Queen's College, Oxford... He was one of the first scholars elected to Christ Church, on the completion of Wolsey's foundation by Henry VIII. To clear up his theological doubts he went abroad in 1552 and lived for several years in Louvain and Paris. On his return to England in 1556 he was made rector of Easington and archdeacon of Durham, despite the fact that he now adopted the theology of the Reformation. Soon afterward he became rector of Houghton-le-Spring. His life at Houghton is said to have been a ceaseless round of benevolent activity; and his extensive charities here and throughout the northern counties soon won for him wide popularity, which, coupled with his Protestant views and his fearless denunciation of clerical vices, naturally made him enemies among the clergy. He was accused before Edmund Bonner, bishop of London, and would have been tried for heresy, and probably beheaded, but for an accident. While on his way to London for trial he broke his

The Genuine Epistles of St. Ignatius, IGNATIUS, Saint, Bishop of Antioch.
11 IGNATIUS, Saint, Bishop of Antioch. The Genuine Epistles of St. Ignatius
1708 Book 10.3 x 16.6 x 2cm Edinburgh 
Wake's English Translation of The Genuine Epistles of St. Ignatius, Edinburgh, 1708


IGNATIUS, Saint, Bishop of Antioch. The Genuine Epistles of St. Ignatius, Translated into English By W. Wake D.D. Printed at Lond. in 1693. As Also, A Vindication of Them By Lewis Ellies Du Pin Dr. of the Sorbon, both put together, and Re-printed at Edinburgh in 1708. To which is Added, A Short Answer To Mr. William Jameson's Nazianzeni Querela, where he Impugns the Authority of the foresaid Epistles. By R. C.[Robert Calder] Edinburgh Printed Anno 1708. 10.3 x 16.6 x 2cm. $215.00

"The author of following Epistles lived in the age of the Apostles. He was the disciple and friend of the Apostle St. John, by whom he was instructed in the doctrines of the gospel. He was the companion and correspondent of St. Polycarp, Bishop of Smyrna; and became Bishop of the church at Antioch, about thirty-seven years after the ascension of the Lord. And finally, having labored in the ministry for the space of forty years, he suffered martyrdom at Rome, by order of the emperor Trajan, A.D. 116. These considerations confer eminent value and authority upon his Epistles--which, by comparison, will be seen also to harmonize with the spirit and doctrines of those written by the Apostles."--Introduction to The Epistles of St. Ignatius, Troy, NY, 1834.

The translator of The Genuine Epistles of St. Ignatius was William Wake (1657-1737) Archbishop of Canterbury. "Alongside his commitment to pastoral work, Wake hankered after a life of scholarly retreat. During a period of convalescence after illness he produced a translation of the Genuine Epistles of the Apostolic Fathers, which was published in 1693. Although reprinted twice, this was not a work of original scholarship but of popularization, making available to English readers texts which helped to demonstrate that the Church of England `in all respects comes the nearest up to the primitive pattern of any Christian Church at this Day in the World' (Genuine Epistles, vi)."--Stephen Taylor, `Wake, William (1657-1737)', Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004; online edn, Oct 2008 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/28409, accessed 19 May 2016].

The editor/compiler of the entire work, Robert Calder (1658-1723) "was a minister of much note in the Episcopal Church of Scotland."--Allibone's Dict. of Authors. Calder was a persistent foe of the Church of Scotland and fought with numerous anti-Presbyterian works and pamphlets in which he repeatedly expounded the superiority of the episcopalians' claims to scriptural and historical authority for their government and worship.

John MacGowan (1726-1780) Scottish particular Baptist minister. "He was converted among the Wesleyan Methodists, and by them ordained to the ministry... he left the Methodists and untied with the Congregationalists; light continuing to increase upon him, he followed the Saviour in immersion. In July, 1767 he was ordained pastor of the Devonshire Square church, London. He continued in this office till his death."--Cathcart: Baptist Ency., p.730. "Macgowan was probably more effective with his pen than in the pulpit, certainly if the number of titles authored and the frequency of their reprinting be any criteria. He had a considerable following in America as well as in Britain, and his works were translated into Welsh and Gaelic."--Charlotte Fell-Smith, `Macgowan, John (1726-1780)', rev. J. H. Y. Briggs, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/17516, accessed 3 May 2013] In this work full of satire and irony, Macgowan mercilessly castigates Oxford University for expelling the six young men "for praying, reading, and expounding the Scriptures." Although listed in Green's bibliography of Anti-Methodist publications, the author is critical only of Oxford University & the Church of England. He does mention in his preface: "Concerning the Sermon I would have it observed, 1. That I pretend not to justify any part of the Methodists conduct, besides praying to God, reading, expounding the scriptures, and singing hymns, &c."

Cotton Mather (1662/63-1727/28) Puritan clergyman, scholar and author, he was the eldest son of Increase Mather. "Cotton Mather was the most influential writer of his generation in America. He brought the puritan period of New England history to an end and started towards the evangelical pietism of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. His vision of Christian religion flying to America inspired nineteenth-century writers on America's manifest destiny..." Re his work with natural science: "Many of Mather's letters to England were about the natural sciences. In 1712 he sent the first of several accounts of unusual natural phenomena to John Woodward, a prominent English geologist. He followed up with letters addressed to John Waller, secretary of the Royal Society, with the hope that they be published in the society's Philosophical Transactions. From 1712 to 1724 Mather sent a total of eighty-two such letters, known collectively as `Curiosa Americana'. Many were printed in the Transactions. Mather made no secret of his wish to be included among the circle that made up the Royal Society, and was elated when news came of his election to the fellowship in 1713. Thereafter with great pride he put FRS after his name. In 1714 he sent to London a large manuscript epitomizing the science of the day that was published in 1721 as The Christian Philosopher. The chapter on astronomy, according to a modern historian, is `The finest example of how Newtonian Science came to America and was disseminated' (Theodore Hornberger in Holmes, 1.137).--quotes from: Michael G. Hall, `Mather, Cotton (1663-1728)', Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004; online edn, Sept 2013 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/18321, accessed 18 May 2016].

He wrote an number of books, "But his principal performance is Social Religion exemplified, which was a work of time... It hath been said, and it is highly probable, that though the names in this book are feigned, many of the characters were real; and that while he was giving an ideal representation of the church at Caerludd, or London, he had a reference to many real facts that had fallen under his own notice, and in which he was personally concerned."

[He was] educated at Sidney College, Cambridge... He was appointed rector of Rempstone, in Nottinghamshire... Dr. Pearson was considered an excellent preacher, and one of the most learned men of his times. ...his fame chiefly rests on his controversial writings against antagonists of necessitarian proclivities... On the other side, Dr. Pearson was among the first to sound an alarm respecting the danger to which the Church was exposed by the spread in it of Calvinistic views of Christian doctrine... In fact Dr. Pearson was the champion of the Arminian clergy in the Church, and the champion of the Church itself against whatever seemed to threaten its integrity and its perpetuity."--McClintock & Strong: Ency. Biblical, Theol. & Eccl. Lit. We offer Pearson's proposal for changes in the Athanasian Creed. In his introduction he says that it is unfortunate that the Athanasian Creed is rarely used even though the rubric calls for thirteen time in a year.

His works are numerous and valuable. His Theological Works were first published with a Life by the editor, Leonard Twells (2 vols., London, 1740). They embrace Porta Mosis (a Latin translation of Maimonides' six discourses prefatory to his commentary upon the Mishna, 1655), Commentaries on Hosea (1685), Joel (1691), Micah and Malachi (1677), and a Latin treatise upon ancient weights and measures. The commentaries formed part of Fell's projected commentary upon the entire Old Testament. They are heavy and prolix, but learned. Pocock took a prominent part in Walton's Polyglot, furnished the collations of the Arabic Pentateuch, and was consulted by Walton at every step."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl. IX:99. Spurgeon quotes: "Orme says Pocock was 'one of the finest Oriental scholars, and certainly the first Arabic scholar of his age.' His book is a treasury filled with the products of laborious research."--Commenting & Commentaries p190.

He was variously rector of Christ Church, Cambridge; president of Transylvania Univ., Lexington, Ky.; rector Trinity Church, New Rochele, NY; prof. of Church History, Trinity College, Hartford, Ct.; lecturer and prof. of Church History in Berkeley Divinity School, Middletown, Ct. 1854-1885. "He was an able student of the Bible, of liturgics, and of church history, a zealous churchman, and the master of dignified, vigourous English. His theological library of 1400 volumes now belongs to the Berkeley Divinity School."--Dict. Natl. Biog. IV:278.

John Taylor (1694-1761) Unitarian theologian and Hebrew scholar. He studied at Whitehaven, a non-conformist academy for the Presbyterian & Congregational ministries. It was here that he began the study of Hebrew. He was ordained in 1716 by dissenting minister in Derbyshire. In 1733 he became the colleague of the Presbyterian minister in Norwich, and in 1757 was appointed to the divinity chair at Warrington Academy. His reading of Samuel Clarke's Scripture Doctrine of the Trinity, past mid-life, caused a radical change in his theological views. He wrote a number of theological works defending his new views including Scripture Doctrine of Original Sin which elicited the famous reply of Jonathan Edwards Sr. "Especially noteworthy is the Hebrew Concordance (2 vols. folio, London, 1754-57), adapted to the English Bible and disposed after the manner of Buxtorf, which held first rank among works of its kind for almost a century, and is an enduring monument to the author's accuracy and industry."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl. XI:284-85.

The Concordance is organized alphabetically by the Hebrew words, with English explanations of the various meanings. It also includes in the last half of vol. 2 and index to English words keyed to the Hebrew words by number. Also included is Index Vocum Hebraicarum Defectivarum et Anomalarum, followed by A Supplement to the Explication Of some of the Roots in the Concordance, which is followed by Easy Rules For Reading Hebrew.
