Thomas Brown

M.E. Author of the History of the Shakers, Ethereal Physician, and History of the Jews

 

A History of the Origin and Progress of the Doctrine of Universal Salvation

Brown, Thomas. The History of the Destruction of the City and Temple of Jerusalem, and of the Ruin and Dispersion of the Jewish Nation.... 252, 89, [4], [345]-360 pp. (12mo) 7x4-1/4, period full tree sheep, spine tooled in gilt. Albany: Thomas Brown, 1825.

The second pagination comprises Dr. Priestley's Letters to the Jews and an Answer by David Levi, a Learned Jew, and on the back of the title-page to that section is boldly written in ink, "The Reader is to be informed that Doctor Priestly is an Unbeliever as well as the Jew & his Doctrine of Christ & Concerning the Trinity is Poison to the Soul."



THE HISTORY OF THE DESTRUCTION OF THE CITY AND TEMPLE OF JERUSALEM, And of THE RUIN AND DISPERSION OF THE JEWISH NATION.

Being a narrative of the calamities which befel the Jews within about forty years after their crucifixion of Jesus Christ. With a continuation of the calamitous History of their Persecutions, and Sufferings from the time of their dispersion to the present day. Shewing ... how exactly the Predictions of Jesus Christ, with those of Moses, and several other Prophets, have been fulfilled relating to those people. With some Observations concerning the Restoration of the Jews, and their resettlement in Jerusalem and Judea; and some remarks respecting the Millennium. With an Appendix, Containing a Concise statement of Christian Persecution by Pagans, Papists, and Protestants. By Thomas Brown, M.E. Author of the History of the Shakers.

To Which is added, Dr. Priestley’s Letters to the Jews, and an Answer by David Levi, A Learned Jew. Published Albany, 1825. Appears first edition. Size about 4.25" x 7", viii; 360pp.

Original leather covers in quite good condition on this rare volume. Front joint cracking about half way up, gilt decorative embossments are worn on spine, some foxing throughout.

Fascinating historical reading on earthquakes, famines, pestilence, and Jews in Spain, Egypt, and Messiah impostors. "In 1137 a false christ arose in France, and caused his followers to hold assemblies contrary to law. He and a large number of his followers were put to death. ... The next year, the Persians were disturbed by a Jew who called himself the messiah, and soon collected a formidable army of his nation... caused the imposter to be beheaded. ... In 1168, another impostor, an Arabian Jew assumed the title of the Messiah; pretended to work miracles...

Some time after another Jew called himself the messiah, and drew vast multitudes after him. He founded his pretension on his having been a leper..." from pp133-134.

"Under his (Herod’s) administration, the Roman luxury was introduced into Judea, accompanied with all the vices of that licentious people. ... After Herod had amassed a prodigious treasure by his extortions and confiscations, he proposed to regain the favour of the Jewish nation, by rebuilding the temple in a more magnificent and splendid style." – from p11.


WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID

Richard Eddy (1889)
"In 1826 there appeared, published in Albany, N. Y., " A History of the Origin and Progress of the Doctrine of Universal Salvation. Also, the Final Reconciliation of All Men to Holiness and Happiness, fully and clearly proved from Scripture, Reason, and Common Sense. And the Principal Texts of Scripture, commonly understood to mean Never-Ending Punishment for Sin, examined, and the True Scriptural Sense of them Clearly Explained. The dreadful doctrine of Endless Misery investigated, and the long controversy, whether or not All Men will finally be saved, decided. By Thomas Brown, M. E. Author of the ' History of the Shakers,' 'Ethereal Physician,' and ' History of the Jews.'" The author was of Quaker parentage, and was born in the City of New York on the 16th of May, 1766. In 1787 he was admitted as a member of the Society of Friends.

In 1799 he became a Shaker, at the Shaker settlement at Watervliet, then " commonly called Neskauna," near Albany, N. Y. He remained a Shaker in faith, although he did not reside at their settlement, till the winter of 1805, when, unwilling to follow in all things the demands of the elders, he left them, and in 1812 published, at Troy, N. Y.," An Account of the People called Shakers," etc. His home at that time was in Cornwall, Orange County, N. Y. Subsequently he published "The Ethereal Physician, or Medical Electricity Revived," and called himself a Medical Electrician, which is the significance of the initials appended to his name on the title page to his work on the History of Universalism. At what time he became a Universalist, as also what was his career after publishing his History, we are not informed. His book has no little merit.

It is chiefly devoted to a statement of the history of the doctrine, and has but few pages relating to the growth of the denomination in the United States. " (Universalism in America, vol. 2, p. 192-193)
