P. 79, 1. 20. with an actual fire, &c.] It is not stated that the golden calf was reduced to powder by the action of fire, but that Moses “burnt it with fire, and stamped it,” (perhaps, as thin as gold leaf," and ground it very small, even until it was as small as dust." (Deuter, ix. 21.) The Hebrew word applied to the pulverisation of the golden calf in Ex, xxxii. 20, and Deuter. ix. 21, is applied in the same way to “molten images in 2 Chron, xxxiv. 4.

P. 79, l. 28. the action of flames, c to G; the action of the flames, A, B ; the actions of flames, h to L.

P. 81, l. 9. Surely, &c.] The remainder of this section is wanting in A, B, and the MSS.

P. 81, l. 12. those flaming mountains] Atna and Vesuvius, which in the popular superstition of the country have been supposed the mouths of hell. (Note in o.)

P. 81, l. 14. devils dwell, D to L; devil dwells, C.

P. 81, l. 18. Anaxagoras] Chapman (R) and Gardiner (w) read Anaxarchus, without authority, but in accordance with Keck's suggestion that Anaxagoras is salse printed, and should be Anaxarchus, inasmuch as it was not the former philosopher, but the latter, who held that there were infinite worlds. Howa

ever, there is no evidence, nor any strong reason for believing, that Sir T. B. did not write Anaxagoras.

P. 84, I. 13. those many subdivisions of Hell, &c.] Dante describes nine circles of Hell, some of which are subdivided. In Limbo, “which is the first circle, he finds the souls of those, who, although they have lived virtuously and have not to suffer for great sins, nevertheless, through lack of baptism, merit not the bliss of Paradise.” (Cary's Argument to Canto iv.) This was the Limbus Putrum ; he did not visit the Limbus Infantum, the abode of unbaptized infants.

P. 84, 1. 20. they who derive, K, L ; they that derive, A, B, and the MSS. ; they derive, c to J, M. This is one of the very few cases in which the reading of c is inferior to that of A, B. See below, p. 104, 1. 25. P. 85, 1. 16. the Stoicks, &c.] Gardiner refers to Shakspeare,

“For there was never yet philosopher

P. 85, 1. 19. the Scepticks, &c.] Keck quotes Lucretius (iv. 471.) :

An sciri possit ; quoniam nihil scire fatetur." P. 85, 1. 28. The Duke of Venice, &c.] An ancient ceremony formerly performed by the Doge every year, in token of the sovereignty of the state of Venice over the Adriatic.

P. 85, 1. pen. the Philosopher, &c.] Alluding either to Antisthenes (St. Jerome, in Matth. xix. 28 tom. iv. par. i. col. 89, quoted by Jer. Taylor, Life of Christ, i. 5. § 2. vol. ii. p. 107, ed. Eden), or Aristippus (Diog. Laërt. Vit. Philos. ii. 8. $ 77), or Crates (id. vi. 5. § 87); for the story is told of each of these philosophers. Keck and other modern editors say that Apollonius of Tyana is meant, —but this is doubtful.

P. 86, 11. 6, 7. to the venny of another] to another, A, B, which is followed by Q.

P. 86, 1. 7. venny, i to M; vennie, c to H; Chapman (R) and Gardiner (w) write veny; Wilkin (T) and St. John (U) veney; Peace (v) venny.

P. 86, 1. 15. We naturally know what is good, &c.] Smith (A A,) refers to Ovid, Met. vii. 20 :

“Video meliora, proboque ;

Deteriora sequor." P. 87, l. 1. This section is wanting in A, B, and the MSS.

P. 87, 1. 2. Strabo's cloak] Strabo (ii. 5, p. 184, ed. Tauchn.) compared, not Europe, but the then known world, to a cloak, χλαμυδοειδής. .

P. 87, l. 16. who are in a manner all Martyrs] “Christiani enim in Asia, ut et in finibus Abyssinorum, gravissima a Mahometanis patiuntur. (Moltke.) P. 87, l. 27:

the Atomist, or Familist] The present Editor hai been unable to discover who the Atomists were. competent person whom he consulted suggested that the word should be Adamite, another that it should be Anabaptist ; but there is no reason for thinking that the name is not what Sir T. B. wrote, as there is no variation in any of the edd. or MSS. The Latin translation has Atomista et Familistæ. Keck, the English commentator, passes over the words without notice, as does also Sir Kenelm Digby in his “Observantions,” presumably because they were too familiar to require explanation.

One very

Moltke, the foreign commentator, says of them, “Novæ (ut puto,) in Anglia sectæ.” Wilkin " suspects the two names refer to but one sect,” which opinion is followed by other modern editors; Mr. Smith (A A) says, “The atomists seemingly because they were a united family.”

"-It is at any rate a singular coincidence that has been pointed out, viz., that in Thomas Edwards's Gangrena, &c., 1646, (p. 87) there is mention of a Mrs. Atomy, who preached in 1644 or '45 before an audience of some fifty persons, and maintained universalism; but it is hardly probable that she should have been sufficiently eminent to found a sect bearing her own name, which in 1636 (the date of the composition of Rel. Med.) was as well known as the Familists. This latter sect (called also the “ Family of Love") appeared about 1575, and is mentioned in the Church histories of the period, (Fuller, Marsden, Neal,) and very frequently by Rogers, On the 39 Articles.

P. 87, 1. antep. There must be more than one St. Peter] having in their possession the keys of the gates of Heaven. P. 88, l. 14.

can hardly] A, B, and the MSS. have cannot. P. 88, 1. 17. Those who sentence Solomon, &c.] Keck refers to St. Augustine upon Psalm 126, and in many other places; and also to Lyra, in 2 Reg. c. 7, and Bellarmine, tom. i. lib. i. Controv. c. 5.

P. 89, 1. 19. pretend, a to 1, K, L; pretend to, J, M.
P. 89, 1. 21. her own, A to H, M; our own, i to L.

P. 89, 1. 22. how little} This is the reading, not only of all the authorized edd., but also of all the existing MSS. It seems probable therefore that the reading found in A, B (how much), arose from the editor's not understanding the words he found in his MS., and treating them as a mere clerical error.

By how little Sir T. B. “meant to observe that it is impossible for ‘an humble soul' to 'contemplate her own unworthiness' without • fear and trembling'; so that St. Paul needed not to have enjoined those feelings.” (Wilkin.) P, 89, 1. 30. in some sense, om. A, B, and the MSS.

P. 90, 1. 7. zeals] Q reads zealots, as also above, p. 10, I. 23.

P. 90, 1. 20. And if our Saviour could object, &c.] The word object here has been supposed to be used in the sense of “pre, senting or proposing as the object for which the Disciples were to strive ;' but probably the sentence is rather to be regarded as elliptical, and relating to our Saviour's throwing out against, or reproaching them with (like the Latin objecto,) their lack of faith, årlotlar. So that the argument would seem to be, --If (as our Saviour implies,) even His own Disciples and Favourites had not so much as one grain of Faith, surely we (who are so much inferior to them,) can hardly be supposed to have any at all. And this is the sense given by the Latin Translator :-"Si autem Discipuli ipsi, familiares illi Servatoris nostri, fidem, quantum est sinapis granum, non habuere, quod adec ipsis objectavit ; quan. tula tamen movendis montibus sufficisset ; illam certe,” &c. &c.

P. 90, 1. 29. maturer judgements) At p. 5, 1. 14, it is maturer discernments, thus avoiding the repetition of the word judgements, which occurs again in this sentence. P. 90, l. penult

. father, A, B, C, and the MSS., and so at p. 5, 1. 15. This reading is adopted in Q, and by Peace (V); all the other edd. have favour.

P. 92, 1. 4. French] Flemish, A, B, and the MSS.
P. 92, l. 4. or Dutch, A, B, C, M; and Dutch, D to L.

P. 92, 1. 7. in the eighth climate] " Anglia sub climate octavo sita est."

(Moltke.) See Glossarial Index. P. 92, 1. 8. for to be framed] Wilkin (T) and some other modern editors omit for, on the authority of J.

P. 92, l. 15. nothing] A, B, add, neither plant, animall, nor spirit. P. 92, 1. 17. say I, omitted in i to L, probably by mistake.

P. 92, 1. 17. hate any essence, &c.] A, B, read as follows :hate the devill, or so at least abhorre him, but that we may come to composition. P. 92, l. 24.

men and, om. A, B. P. 92, 1. 29. Canonical Scripture] Holy Scripture, A, B.
