This historic book may have numerous typos, missing text or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1823. Not illustrated. Excerpt: ... APPENDIX. AT the time when the Summary View, mentioned in the Introduction to this work, was penned, the design was, as there mentioned, to include in the present publication, what remained of the History of the Church of Jesus, in so far as the materials are furnished, by the narrative, included in the New Testament, under the title of The Acts of the Apostles. For the reasons there also mentioned, that part of the design has, for the present at least, been relinquished. Nevertheless, as that same Summary View has received a degree of circulation more or less extensive,--and public expectation been in a proportionable degree raised,--a determination has been taken--not to leave the reader of the present work altogether in the dark, with relation to any thing, by which, in the pursuit of the same design, it has been preceded: with the benefit of a few corrections and additions, the then intended titles of the chapters and sections, of the now discarded purely historical work, are accordingly here reprinted. As to the numbers here attached to the several chapters of the as yet suppressed work, they are, as will be seen, such as would of course be attached to them, if that part of the originally intended work were to come out separately. To have inserted, in lieu of them, those which would have been the proper ones, if that work had formed a part of this, would have thrown, over the account given of the suppressed work, a veil of obscurity and confusion. CHAPTER I. Church History, from Jesus's Ascension, to Paul' Conversion. (.1. General view--particulars classed. . 2. Matthias chosen as an associate of the Apostles, in place of Judas. §. 3. At meetings, many languages heard--cloven tongues seen. j. 4. Cripple cured at the Temple by Peter and John. §. 5....

About the Author:

Jeremy Bentham was both radical and brave, and he was years ahead of his time on social issues. His ideas helped lead to the Social Democratic welfare state adopted by the countries of Europe that today enjoy the highest standard of living. He wrote in favor of legalized homosexuality, equality for women, the right to divorce, prison reform, police reform, separation of church and state, freedom of speech, the abolition of slavery, the abolition of the death penalty, children’s rights, and animal rights. Bentham is known as the founder of utilitarianism, a political philosophy that encourages public officials to adopt policies that provide the greatest good for the greatest number. His principles on economics, philosophy, statesmanship, and law influenced governments not only in Europe but also in the Americas. Several Central and South American governments called upon him to help draft their constitutions. Indeed, in Latin America he became known as “the legislator of the world.” Much of Bentham’s reputation rests on his Principles of Morals and Legislation, published in 1789. Even Napoleon called it a work of genius. Many of Ben-tham’s works went unpublished, however, because they were simply too radical to find an audience, much less a publisher. To our knowledge, no other Englishman of his day was writing in defense of homosexuality, a subject never discussed in the England of his day except when necessary to convict and publicly hang someone accused of engaging in a homosexual act. The historian Louis Crompton, who presumably saw much of Ben-tham’s unpublished material, claims Bentham wrote more than five hun-dred pages arguing for homosexuality in which he relied heavily on classical Greek literature to make his case. None of Bentham’s essays defending homosexuality could be published in his lifetime. The first to appear was Offences Against One’s Self, first published in 1931. Bentham was a radical in his religious beliefs, as well. He did not believe that the story of Sodom and Gomorrah was a treatise against homosexuali-ty, as indeed it is not, and he believed the story of David and Jonathan was a homosexual romance, as was the story of Jesus and the “beloved disci-ple.”
