ENCYCLOPEDIA

OR

DICTIONARY

OF

BIBLICAL, HISTORICAL, DOCTRINAL, AND PRACTICAL THEOLOGY.

BASED ON1 THE REAL-ENCYKLOPADIE OF HERZOG, PLITT, AND HADCK.

EDITED BY

PHILIP SCHAFF, D.D., LL.D.,

PROFESSOR IN THE UNION THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY, NEW YORK.

'As a comprehensive work of reference, within a moderate compass, we know nothing at all equal to it in the large department which it deals with.'—Church Bells.

'The work will remain as a wonderful monument of industry, learning, and skill. It will be indispensable to the student of specifically Protestant theology; nor, indeed, do we think that any scholar, whatever be his especial line of thought or study, would find it superfluous on his shelves.'—Literary Churchman.

1 We commend this work with a touch of enthusiasm, for we have often wanted such ourselves. It embraces in its range of writers all the leading authors of Europe on ecclesiastical questions. A student may deny himself many other volumes to secure this, for it is certain to take a prominent and permanent place in our literature.'— Evangelical Magazine.

4 Dr. Schaff's name is a guarantee for valuable and thorough work. His new Encyclopaedia (based on Herz.og) will be one of the most useful works of the day. It will prove a standard authority on all religious knowledge. No man iu the country is so well fitted to perfect such a work as this distinguished and exact scholar —Howard Crosby, D.D., LL.D., ex-Chancellor of the University, New York.

'This work will prove of great service to many; it supplies a distinct want in our theological literature, and it is sure to meet with welcome from readers who wish a popular book of reference on points of historical, biographical, and theological interest. Many of the articles give facts which may be sought far and wide, and in vain in our encyclopaedias.'—Scotsman.

'Those who possess the latest edition of Herzog will still find this work by no means superfluous. . . . Strange to say, the condensing process seems to have improved the original articles. . . . We hope that no minister's library will long remain without a copy of this work.'—Daily Seview.

'For fulness, comprehensiveness, and accuracy, it will take the first place among Biblical Encyclopaedias.'—Wm. . Taylor, D.D.

'Illustrated and defended with an ability and learning which must command the reader's admiration.'—Dublin Review.

'A great contribution to the literature of this subject. M. Janet has mastered the conditions of the problem, is at home in the literature of science and philosophy, and has that faculty of felicitous expression which makes French books of the highest class such delightful reading; ... in clearness, vigour, and depth it has been seldom equalled, and more seldom excelled, in philosophical literature.'—Spectator.

'A wealth of scientific knowledge and a logical acumen which will win the admiration of every reader.'—Church Quarterly Review.

THE BIBLE DOCTRINE OF MAN.

(SEVENTH SERIES OF CUNNINGHAM LECTURES.)

By JOHN LAIDLAW, D.D.,
Professor of Systematic Theology, New College, Edinburgh.

'An important and valuable contribution to the discussion of the anthropology of the sacred writings, perhaps the most considerable that has appeared in our own language. —Literary Churchman.

'The work is a thoughtful contribution to a subject which must always have deep interest for the devout student of the Bible.'—British Quarterly Review.

'Dr. Laidlaw's work is scholarly, able, interesting, and valuable. . . . Thoughtful and devout minds will find much to stimulate, and not a little to assist, their meditations in this learned and, let us add, charmingly printed volume.'—Record.

'On the whole, we take this to be the most sensible and reasonable statement of the Biblical psychology of man we have met.'—Expositor.

'The book will give ample material for thought to the reflective reader; and it holds a position, as far as we know, which is unique.'—Church Belli.
