Devil S Pulpit Volume Two


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Includes the complete Memoir of Taylor's life, found only in this Book Tree edition. This is the second volume in a collection of sermons presented by Rev. Robert Taylor - sermons that stirred up more trouble in England than most anything else during this time. He was ordained in 1813 and spent five years preaching standard Christianity before meeting an "infidel," who opened Taylor's mind. Taylor began researching and questioning everything in the Christian faith that seemed deceitful and disgusting, which was being supported and praised by the standard fanatics in the faith that surrounded him. While seeking the true meaning and origins of the scriptures, he was shunned by family and friends, and ousted by the Church. He was jailed on more than one occasion, due to his oratory skills and winning many debates against those supporting standard religious dogmas. His time in prison was always put to good use through the written works that he produced. Subjects covered in this volume include The Dangers of Belief, The Origins and Purpose of the Devil, the Zodiac and the Old Testament, Lying Spirits, the Fall of Man, Noah, Who Was Abraham?, Melchisedec, Origins of the Lord God, the Twelve Patriarchs, Who is the Lord?, Exodus, Miriam, and much more. Robert Taylor was one of the first insiders of the faith to start thinking for oneself and questioning things that needed questioning, despite the heavy price that he had to pay.

Satan And The Scots


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Frequent discussions of Satan from the pulpit, in the courtroom, in print, in self-writings, and on the streets rendered the Devil an immediate and assumed presence in early modern Scotland. For some, especially those engaged in political struggle, this produced a unifying effect by providing a proximate enemy for communities to rally around. For others, the Reformed Protestant emphasis on the relationship between sin and Satan caused them to suspect, much to their horror, that their own depraved hearts placed them in league with the Devil. Exploring what it meant to live in a world in which Satan’s presence was believed to be, and indeed, perceived to be, ubiquitous, this book recreates the role of the Devil in the mental worlds of the Scottish people from the Reformation through the early eighteenth century. In so doing it is both the first history of the Devil in Scotland and a case study of the profound ways that beliefs about evil can change lives and shape whole societies. Building upon recent scholarship on demonology and witchcraft, this study contributes to and advances this body of literature in three important ways. First, it moves beyond establishing what people believed about the Devil to explore what these beliefs actually did- how they shaped the piety, politics, lived experiences, and identities of Scots from across the social spectrum. Second, while many previous studies of the Devil remain confined to national borders, this project situates Scottish demonic belief within the confluence of British, Atlantic, and European religious thought. Third, this book engages with long-running debates about Protestantism and the ’disenchantment of the world’, suggesting that Reformed theology, through its dogged emphasis on human depravity, eroded any rigid divide between the supernatural evil of Satan and the natural wickedness of men and women. This erosion was borne out not only in pages of treatises and sermons, but in the lives of Scots of all sorts. Ultimately, this study suggests that post-Reformation beliefs about the Devil profoundly influenced the experiences and identities of the Scottish people through the creation of a shared cultural conversation about evil and human nature.
