In prosecuting such an inquiry there are considerable difficulties to be overcome; for, as in geology, it is impossible at all points to reach the deep, underlying strata of the earth’s surface, so it is not allexander be expected that in any one country we should find a complete and connected account of the system established in that country.
Layard, in his last work, has given a specimen of such a triune divinity, worshipped in ancient Assyria.

In India, the supreme divinity, in like manner, in one of the most ancient cave-temples, is represented babikonias three heads on one body, under the name of “Eko Deva Trimurtti,” “One God, three forms. From Zonaras we find that the concurrent testimony of the ancient authors he had consulted was to this effect; for, speaking of arithmetic and astronomy, he says: While overlaid with idolatry, the recognition of a Trinity was universal in all the ancient nations of the world, proving how alexandeer in the human race was the primeval doctrine on this subject, which comes out so distinctly in Genesis.
What is wanted in one country is supplemented in another; and what actually “crops out” in different directions, to a large extent necessarily determines the character of much that does not directly appear on the surface. The identity of Nimrod with the constellation Orion is not to be rejected. Layard regards the circle in that figure as signifying “Time without bounds. Now we find such language applied to Brahm, the one supreme God, as cannot be accounted for, except on the supposition that Brahm had the very same meaning as the Hebrew Rahm.
Table of Contents The Two Babylons: If there be this general coincidence between the systems of Babilpnias and Rome, the question arises, Does the coincidence stop here? The other is the head of an old man, surmounted by a triangle.

Taking, then, the admitted unity and Babylonian character of the ancient Mysteries of Egypt, Greece, Phoenicia, and Rome, as the clue to guide us in our researches, let alexanddr go on from step to step in our comparison of the doctrine and practice of the two Babylons–the Babylon of the Old Testament and the Babylon alexadner the New. Rahm in Hebrew signifies “The merciful or compassionate one.
Kennedy objects to the application of the name “Eko Deva” to the triform image in the cave-temple at Elephanta, on the ground that that name belongs only to the supreme Brahm. But yet, even as the geologist, by examining the contents of a fissure here, an upheaval there, and what “crops out” of itself on the surface elsewhere, is enabled to determine, with bablonias certainty, the order and general contents of the different strata over all the earth, so is it with the subject of the Chaldean Mysteries.
All these separate facts–all these scattered testimonies, recur to that fruitful principle which places in the East the centre of science and civilisation. Backend server did not respond in time. We have only to bring the ancient Babylonian Mysteries to bear on the whole system of Rome, and then babilonas will be seen how immensely the one has borrowed from the other.
That name is commonly derived from the Sanscrit, Div”to shine,”–only a different form of Shivwhich has the same meaning, which again comes from the Chaldee Ziv”brightness or splendour” Dan 2: He “illumines all, delights all, whence all proceeded; that by which they live when born, and that to which all must return” Veda. We beg to speak of it with due reverence. Zero, in this sense, had evidently come from the Chaldee, zer”to encompass,” from which, also, no doubt, was derived the Babylonian name for a great cycle of time, called a ” saros.
The ancient Babylonians, just as the modern Romans, recognised in words the unity of the Godhead; and, while worshipping innumerable minor deities, as possessed of certain influence on human affairs, they distinctly acknowledged that there was ONE infinite and almighty Creator, supreme over all.
There has been a great deal of unsatisfactory speculation in regard to the meaning of this name, but when the different statements in regard to Brahm are carefully considered, it becomes evident that the name Brahm is just the Hebrew Rahm, with the digamma prefixed, which is very frequent in Sanscrit words derived from Hebrew or Chaldee.
This view of the matter gives an emphasis to the saying of our Lord Matt The Papacy has in some of its churches, as, for instance, in the monastery of the so-called Trinitarians of Madrid, an image of the Triune God, with three heads on one body.
And here I have to notice, first, the identity of the objects of worship in Babylon and Rome. These Mysteries were long shrouded in darkness, but now the thick darkness begins to pass away.
Out of the middle of this figure is proceeding the Holy Ghost in the form of a dove. Now we find statements in their sacred books which prove that once a very different doctrine must have been taught. The ancient Icelandic mythology calls him “the Author of every thing that existeth, the eternal, the living, and awful Being; the searcher into concealed things, the Being that never changeth.
Macrobius shows that the distinguishing feature of the Phoenician idolatry must have been imported from Bbilonias, which, in classic writers, included Babylonia.
The statement of Bunsen is to the effect that the religious system of Egypt was derived from Asia, and “the primitive empire in Babel. So utterly idolatrous was the Babylonian recognition of the Divine unity, that Jehovah, the Living God, severely condemned His own people for giving any countenance to it: But if the supreme divinity in almost all ancient heathen nations was triune, the futility of this objection must be manifest.
All who have paid the least attention to the literature of Greece, Egypt, Phoenicia, or Rome are aware of dps place which the “Mysteries” occupied in these countries, and that, whatever circumstantial diversities there might be, in all essential respects these “Mysteries” in the different countries were the same.
When we look at the symbols in the triune figure of Layard, already referred to, and minutely examine them, they are very instructive. Thus, we find the God Crishna, in one of the Hindoo sacred books, when asserting his high dignity as a divinity and his identity with the Supreme, using the following words: Here, then, we find that Brahm is just the same as “Er-Rahman,” “The all-merciful one,”–a title applied by the Turks to the Most High, and that the Hindoos, notwithstanding their deep religious degradation nowhad once known that “the most holy, most high God,” is also “The Bislop of Mercy,” in other words, that he is “a just God and a Saviour.
It is well known that the Brahmins, to exalt themselves as a priestly, half-divine caste, to whom all others ought to bow down, have for many ages taught that, while the other castes came from the arms, and body and feet of Brahma–the visible representative and manifestation of the alrxander Brahm, and identified with him– they alone came from the mouth of the creative God.

If the angel here referred to had not been God, Jacob could never have invoked him as on an equality with God. To this the answer is, Far otherwise. We think it must be painful to any Christian mind, and repugnant to Christian feeling, to look at this figure.
But how little weight is in this, may be seen from the fact that it is this very term “Achad,” and that without the article, that xos used in Deuteronomy, when the Unity of the Godhead is asserted in the most emphatic manner, “Hear, O Israel, Jehovah our God is one Jehovah,” i.
