Excerpt: ... manner that his maturer reflection approved, completely set at rest the question of common sense, as denoting the intuitive evidence of a class of moral and religious propositions capable of satisfactory proof, or of high probability, from considerations ab e.z'tra." T. C. Mem. 8vo. pp. 78, 79. See W. III. 7, I73, adfin. In I775; 2nd Ed. 1790. HI " His frame, his duty, and his expectations, l749." See supra, p. 24. " " Introductory Essays." W. III..1 74-196. 1'r1 The first, adfin. W. III.

This led me to give the closest attention to the subject, and the consequence was the firmest persuasion that man is wholly material, ' and that our only prospect of immortality is from the Christian doctrine of a resurrection. I therefore digested my thoughts on the subject, and published my " Disquisitions relating to Matter and Spirit: "1' also the subjects of Socinianism and Necessity, being nearly connected with the doctrine of the materiality of man, I advanced several considerations from the state of opinions in ancient times in favour of the former; and in a separate volume,1' discussed more at large what related to the latter, dedicating the first volume of this work to Mr. Graham, and the second to Dr. Jebb. (126.) It being probable that this publication would be unpopular, and might be a means of bringing odium on my patron, several attempts were made by his friends, though none by himself, to dissuade me from...

I hope that I shall endeavour so to judge, and so to act, as not to " be ashamed before him at his coming." That there is much real difference of opinion among Christian ministers is evident; and I have no doubt, but that this, as well as all other seeming evils, will appear to have answered a good purpose; in many cases, I am convinced, that there is much less difiference than is imagined, from the different phraseology we adopt. Many Dissenting Ministers, availing themselves of mere verbal distinctions, especially with respect to the doctrine of the Trinity, not only secure the reputation and other advantages of orthodoxy; but studiously throw an odium upon others, as helerodox, whose sentiments they know to be, in reality, not at all different from their own. There are circumstances in which it will, doubtless, be prudent and right for a man to conceal his sentiments, if he can do it without dissimulation; but I have always chosen to lean rather to the other extreme; and had all who think as I do in matters of religion, acted with scrupulous integrity and honesty, Pam convinced it would have been much better for the interest of truth and of virtue too though I am far from thinking that those who have acted on different maxims have not had the best intentions. One of Dr. Priestley's signatures in the three first Volumes. 1-See infra. 1 Answer, p. 97. (P.) l do not think, as you insinuate with respect to me, that you have designedly misrepresented the sentiments of the Dissenters concerning the_Lord's Supper; but I suppose that you, thinking pretty rationally on this...

Excerpt: ...the idea of it present to his mind, during the whole time of his confinement, sweetening all the bitterness of it, and will never have known the distress of uncertainty, or the agony of despair. Whenideas only are concerned, and not both ideas and sensations, the influence of hope and fear is much more distinctly perceived, and the nature of this comprehension of mind will be better understood by it. Instead, then, of putting a case in which we ourselves are concerned, let us put the case of a wife, a child, or any other near relation or friend, with whom we can truly sympathise, taking part in all their joys and sorrows. If we see them in prison, and, after apprehending that their confinement will be for life, have private information that they will be released, and placed in very agreeable circumstances in a few days, weeks, or months; we can see them in the mean time, even though we are, not allowed to communicate our intelligence to them, with joy almost unmixed; because the future is realized, and the agreeableness of it heightened in our ideas by its contrast with the present; which, being temporary, is overlooked by us, as nothing, and has not power to damp our satisfaction. If my child be peevish and obstinate, and I be sensible that pain and mortification will do him good, I can, without the help of much anger, have a kind of satisfaction in inflicting it, and have little or no sympathy with what he suffers; though, for a time, he be in an agony of distress, and think very unkindly of me. On the other hand, ifl foresaw that he would lose a limb in a few days, weeks, or months, I should look upon him in the mean time with a most painful compassion, notwithstanding he himselfshould be ever so happy, and enjoy himself ever so much;...

Not illustrated. 1831 edition. Excerpt: ...At Constantinople it was formerly eaten by young scholars, sent from the school for that purpose, as is related by Evagrius, who wrote at the endiof the sixth century. The Council of Toledo, in 693, left it to the liberty of each particular church, either to keep what remained of the consecrated elements, orto eat it; but, in the latter case, it was ordained that the quantity consecrated should be moderate, that it might not oppress the stomachs of those who were appointed to take it. But, in whatever manner they disposed of these sacred elements, it was the custom not to leave any of them till the next day.1 One would imagine that we had seen superstition enough in this one article of Christian faith and practice, within thifl period; but we shall find much greater abuses in the next: and notwithstanding the reater light of the present age, they continue unreformed in t e church of Rome to this day. SECTION III.. The Ifistory of the Eucharist, from the Time of Paschasius to the Reformation. WE are now arrived at the most distinguished tern in the history of the eucharist; after having seen how much the eucharistical elements in this age of darkness had gained in point of sacredneas and solemnity, and how awful a thing the act of communicating was generally apprehended to be; so that commonly the priest alone communicated, and the people very seldom, except at the time of the greater festivals, and especially at Easter. This was in consequence of the people in general being impressed with a confused notion that the eucharistical elements were, in some sense or other, the body and blood of Christ, and therefore that Christ himself was present in them. But in what manner he wasipresent they seem to have had no clear 'idea. This...

Excerpt: ...1 See Luke xxiii. 7-II 5 Vol. XIII. p. 349. 24, ) "I am innocent of the blood of this just person;" to which the Jews replied, ver..95, " His blood be on us, and on our children." He then delivered him to the custody of the soldiers for crucifixion, 'ver. 26, without his making any defence, or pleading for any remission of the unjust and cruel sentence. Previous to his crucifixion, Jesus, according to the custom of the Romans, was scourged by the soldiers with great severity, ' and exposed to much insult by their clothing him in a purple robe, and putting a crown of the herb acanthusf (not perhaps of thorns) on his head. Being probably much disfigured by this treatment, Pilate hoped that the sight of him would have moved the Jews, as no doubt it did himself, to compassion. He therefore produced him before them in that state; declaring once more, that, he found no fault in him, and desiring them to take him, and crucify him of their own authority. This, however, they declined, not having any such power. But, in order to induce him to consent to their request with more freedom, they farther said, (John xix. 7, ) that " by their law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.";l: This, which Pilate had not heard before, alarmed him; and going again into the judgment hali, he asked Jesus, Whence he was. He making no answer, Pilate said, " Speakest thou not unto me? Kiiowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and power to release thee P" Jesus, without being at all intimidated at this, replied, " Thou couldst have had no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above," meaning from God, in consequence of whose counsels it was that he should die...

Excerpt: ...Opuscula Mg/tkologica, i(p. 341, ) after mentioning this, adds, " For he knew that that blood was the food of the spirit (pneama), and that the spirit is either the soul itself (psuche), or the vehicle of the soul." (P. ) satisfaction without end. Whatever pure food, mixed with honey, a man offers on the thirteenth day of the moon, in the season of rain, and under the lunar asterism mag/ui, has likewise a ceaseless duration. Oh! may that man, say the manes, be born in our line, who may give us milky food, with honey and pure butter, both on the thirteenth of the moon, and when the shadow of an element falls to the East! Whatever a man endued with strong faith, piously offers as the law has directed, becomes a perpetual, unperishable gratification to his ancestors in the other world."' In these wretched superstitions we may perhaps see the reason of some of the laws of Moses, many of which were evidently intended to counteract the customs of the Heathens in early times. What we find in his writings concerning the sacrifices for the dead; and phrases of a similar import, probably refer to the manes of dead ancestors, which we see to make so great a part of the religion of the Hindoos, and also of the Chinese, but which never enters into that of the Hebrews. Perhaps, too, the great stress we here find to be laid on the use of honey in these oblations was the reason why it was wholly forbidden in the Hebrew ritual, and salt only made use of. It is in vain, however, for the most prejudiced unbeliever to look for any thing parallel to this doctrine of purification and expiation in the institutions of Moses, or that looks as if they were borrowed, directly or indirectly, from them, as M. Langles asserts. All the modes of...
