Hence, from Dheva or Theva”The Good,” naturally comes the Sanscrit, Devaor, without the digamma, as it frequently is, Deo”God,” the Latin, Deusand the Greek, Theosthe digamma in the original Thevo-s being also dropped, as novus in Latin is neos in Greek.
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 to be expected that in any one country we should find a complete and connected account of the system established in that country.
The book has been published by various Protestant publishing houses over the years, one being Chick Publicationswhich is still publishing the book as of The gift of the ministry is one of the greatest gifts which Christ has bestowed upon the world.

Hislop attempted to show that the cult and worship of Semiramis spread globally, her name changing with the culture.
So also was the Pagan Pontiff of Rome.
In the unity of that one Only God of the Babylonians, there were three persons, and to symbolise that doctrine of the Trinity, they employed, as the discoveries of Layard prove, the equilateral triangle, just as it is well known the Romish Church does at this day.
Now, when he had come, in the estimation of the Pagansto occupy the place of the representatives of Janus and Cybeleand therefore to be entitled to bear their keys, the Pope saw that if he could only get it believed among the Christians that Peter alone had the power of the keys, and that he was Peter’s successor, then the sight of these keys would keep up the delusion, and thus, though the temporal dignity of Rome as a city should decay, his own dignity as the Bishop of Rome would be more firmly established than ever.
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.

The sacred images are represented as adoring him, which could not have been the case if his own subjects did not pay their homage in that way. If the reader only considers the blasphemous assumptions of the Papacy, he will see how exactly it has copied from its original. OVID’s Fasti Very early, indeed, did the bishop of Rome show a proud and ambitious spirit ; but, for the first three centuriestheir claim for superior honour was founded simply on the dignity of their see, as being that of the imperial city, the capital of the Roman world.

All who have paid the least attention to the literature of Greece, Egypt, Phoenicia, or Rome are aware of the place which the “Mysteries” occupied in these countries, and that, hisop circumstantial diversities there might be, in all essential respects these “Mysteries” in the bavilonias countries were the same. It bears its Chaldean origin on its very forehead. 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 is 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.
