OPINIONS OF THE PRESS

IN REGARD TO FORMER EDITIONS OF THE WORK.

"The volume before us on the subject of Romanism is able and interesting. The Author is a 'full man.' His scholarship is ripe, and his historical research deep and accurate. Classical and Oriental literature, and the records of antiquity, he employs with the skill and readiness of a master, to make good his positions. Rarely indeed, within the same space, have we seen such a rich variety of learned and curious information arrayed in evidence against the assumptions, usages, doctrines, and pretended apostolical origin of Romanism. The tinsel garments of pretended sanctity he strips off, and the charm of sacred association he scatters to the winds."—Evangelical Magazine.

"One of the most valuable contributions towards the settlement of the great

controversy which we hold with Antichrist that has appeared for years

The relation which mythology bears to mythology, and which all bear to Christian Theism, is beautifully, though apparently unconsciously, developed in Mr Hislop's 'Two Babylons.'" —Stanyan Bigg ia Downshire Protestant.

"Mr. Hislop's work entitles him to a place in the first ranks of those who have been honoured, by their discoveries, to throw intensely interesting light, in different ways, on some of the darkest pages of the world's history."— Original Secession Magazine.

"Mr. Hislop has displayed no small amount of historical and philological lore, which stamp him as a scholar of no mean rank. His felicity in tracing analogies is very remarkable."—Scottish Press.

"Mr. Hislop has collected a large mass of materials (many of them new and very striking) in proof of his position; and has arranged and stated his argument with a calmness, precision, and force, that greatly impress the reader."—Christian Treasury.

"These papers (on the Moral Identity of Babylon and Rome) produced at the time a powerful impression; and their learned author has since prosecuted his inquiries more fully, and in a most interesting volume, just published, has set forth in ample detail the whole proofs and illustrations of his interesting and striking theory. ... It gives one a strange and vivid idea of the inspiration of Scripture to read these remarkable pages" —Dr. Begg in Bulwark.

"This is a work of no commonplace character. It clearly proves that the religion of the Church of Rome is the religion of ancient Babylon, tinted and varnished with the name of Christianity."—Achill Herald.

"This work is of no common erudition We have not for a considerable time met with any volume that presents the subject in lights so striking and original. The author has performed a noble service to our common Protestantism, and is entitled to the thanks of every section of the true Church."— Dr Campbell of London in British Standard.

"We venture to say, no reader will rise from its perusal without a loftier reverence for God's truth, and a deeper conviction of the indelible brand that truth has stamped upon the Papal system. There is a touch of the sublime in finding the predictions of the Seer of Patmos unloosed from their enigmatic mystery, when we bring together the early idolatrous worship of Chaldea, and the latest dogmas of Rome. The simple narrative of the two developments completes the circle—a luminous ring, which lights up the dark page of prophecy until it reads like a history written but yesterday."—Northern Warder.

"The vast amount of learning, and the philological research and comparison so fascinating to many minds, coupled with the striking analogies every now and then made apparent, render the book as attractive as a novel, and the reader is drawn on irresistibly to the end. Its pages form a mine of historical wealth, or rather a depository of ores and fossils dug from a vast number of sources, and labelled, classified, and arranged until, like specimens from the various strata of the earth's crust similarly laid out in a museum, and pieced together by the hands of a master in geology, the oneness of the source whence sprung the many systems of religion of ancient times is made manifest, as are the corruptions which in later ages have crept into the Church of the primitive Christians."—Arbroath Guide.
