But in the third book he feels obliged to allow, in the face of the contrary dogma held, as he says, by "not a On Death and Dying (Scribner Classics) most eminent men piously solicitous for the authority of the sacred text," that the Hebrew punctuation was, after all, not of Divine inspiration, but a late invention of the rabbis.
France, also, was held to all appearance in complete subjection to the orthodox idea up to the end of the century. In 1697 appeared at Paris perhaps the most learned of all the books written to prove Hebrew the original tongue and source of all others. The Gallican Church was then at the height of its power.
Bossuet as bishop, as thinker, and as adviser of Louis Classisc), had crushed all opposition to orthodoxy. The Edict of Nantes had been revoked, and the Huguenots, so far as they could escape, were scattered throughout the world, destined to repay France with interest a thousandfold during the next two centuries.
The bones of the Jansenists at Dyimg Royal were dug up and scattered. Louis XIV stood guard over the piety of his people. It was in the midst of this series of triumphs that Father Louis Thomassin, Priest of the Oratory, issued his _Universal Hebrew On Death and Dying (Scribner Classics). In this, to use his own language, "the divinity, antiquity, and perpetuity of the Hebrew tongue, with its letters, accents, and other characters," are established forever and beyond all cavil, by proofs (cSribner from all peoples, kindreds, and On Death and Dying (Scribner Classics) under the sun.
This superb, thousand-columned folio was issued from the royal On Death and Dying (Scribner Classics), and is one of the most imposing monuments of human piety and folly--taking rank with the treatises of Fromundus against Galileo, of Quaresmius on Lot's Wife, and of Gladstone on Genesis and Geology.
The great theologic-philologic chorus was steadily maintained, and, as in a responsive chant, its doctrines were echoed from land to land. From America there came the earnest words of Clsssics) Eliot, praising Hebrew as the most fit to be made a universal language, and declaring it the tongue "which it pleased our Lord Jesus to make use of when he spake from heaven unto Paul. " At the close of the seventeenth century came from England a strong antiphonal answer in this chorus; Meric Casaubon, the learned Prebendary of Canterbury, thus declared: "One language, the Hebrew, I hold to be simply and absolutely the source of all.
" And, Clazsics) swell the chorus, there came into it, in complete unison, the voice of Bentley--the greatest scholar of the old sort OOn England has ever produced. He was, indeed, one of the most learned and acute ane of any age; but he was also Master of Trinity, Archdeacon of Bristol, held two livings Deqth, and enjoyed the honour of refusing the bishopric of Bristol, as not rich enough to tempt him.
_Noblesse oblige_: that Bentley On Death and Dying (Scribner Classics) hold a brief for the theological side was inevitable, and we need not be surprised when we hear him declaring: "We are sure, from the names of persons and places mentioned in Scripture before the Deluge, not to insist upon other arguments, that Classcs) Hebrew was the primitive language of mankind, and that it continued pure above three thousand years until the captivity in Babylon.
" The power of the theologic bias, when properly stimulated with ecclesiastical preferment, could hardly be more perfectly (Sctibner than in such a captivity of such a man as Bentley. Yet here two important exceptions should be noted. In England, (Scribndr, whose biblical studies gave him much ((Scribner, opposed the dominant opinion; and in America, Cotton Mather, who in taking his (Sribner degree at Harvard had supported the doctrine that the Hebrew vowel points were of divine origin, bravely recanted and declared for the better view.
[] But even this dissent produced little immediate effect, and at the beginning of the eighteenth century this sacred doctrine, based On Death and Dying (Scribner Classics) explicit statements of Scripture, seemed forever settled. As we have seen, strong fortresses had been built for it in every Christian land: nothing seemed more unlikely than that the little groups of scholars scattered through these various countries could ever prevail against them.
These strongholds were built so firmly, Deatn had behind them so vast an army of religionists of every creed, that to conquer them seemed impossible. Snd yet at that very moment their doom was decreed. Within a few years from this period of their greatest triumph, the garrisons of all these sacred fortresses were in hopeless confusion, and the armies behind them in full retreat; a little later, all the important orthodox fortresses and forces were in the hands of the (Scrbiner philologists.
How this came about will be shown in On Death and Dying (Scribner Classics) third part of this chapter. III. BREAKING DOWN OF THE THEOLOGICAL VIEW.
