Now to establish the identity between the systems of ancient Babylon and Papal Rome, we have just to inquire in how far does the system of the Papacy agree with the system established in these Babylonian Mysteries. These Mysteries were long shrouded in darkness, but now the thick darkness begins to pass away. Now we find statements in their sacred books which prove that once a very different doctrine must have been taught.
In Japan, the Buddhists worship their great divinity, Buddha, with three heads, in the very same form, under the name of “San Pao Fuh. To this the answer is, Far otherwise. One gabilonias the heads is like the ordinary pictures of our Saviour.
Layard regards the circle in that figure as signifying “Time without bounds. Now we find such language baabilonias 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. Apexander think it must be painful to any Christian mind, and repugnant to Christian feeling, to look at this figure.
Layard, in his last work, has given a specimen of such a triune divinity, worshipped in ancient Assyria. If there be this general coincidence between the systems of Babylon and Rome, the question arises, Does the coincidence stop here? The statement of Bunsen is to the effect that the religious system of Egypt was derived from Asia, and “the primitive empire in Babel.
But there is reason to believe that “Deva” has a much more honourable origin, and that it really came originally from the Chaldee, Thav”good,” which is also legitimately pronounced Thevand in the emphatic form is Theva or Thevo”The Good. 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 Nabilonias.
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.
He “illumines all, delights all, whence all proceeded; that by which they live when born, and that to which all must return” Veda.
Petersburg, and given in Parson’s “Japhet. 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 bxbilonias holy, most high God,” is also “The God of Mercy,” in other words, that he is “a just God and a Saviour.
This view of the matter gives an emphasis to the saying of our Lord Matt What is wanted in one country is supplemented in another; and what actually “crops out” in different directions, to a large extent ddos determines alwxander character of much that does not directly appear on the surface.
But if the supreme divinity in almost all ancient heathen nations alexxnder triune, the futility of this objection must be manifest. Though modern Hinduism recognises millions of gods, yet the Indian sacred books show that originally it had been far otherwise.
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. After referring to the fact that the Egyptian priests claimed the honour of having transmitted to the Greeks the first elements of Polytheism, he thus concludes: The ancient Icelandic mythology calls him “the Author of every thing that existeth, the eternal, the living, and awful Being; alexanddr searcher into concealed things, the Being that never changeth.
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 wonderful certainty, the order and general contents of the different strata over all the earth, so is it with the subject of the Chaldean Mysteries.
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: 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.
Therefore, according to the genius of the mystic system of Chaldea, which was to a large extent founded on double meanings, that which, to the eyes of men in general, was only zero, “a circle,” was understood by the initiated to signify zero, “the seed. The Egyptians also used the triangle as a symbol of their “triform divinity.
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 other is the head of an old man, surmounted by a triangle. We beg to speak of it with due reverence. Most other nations did the same. Some have said that the plural form of the name of God, in alexsnder Hebrew of Genesis, affords no argument of the doctrine of plurality of persons in the Godhead, because the same word in the plural is applied to heathen divinities.
When we look at the symbols in the triune figure of Layard, already referred to, and minutely examine them, they are very instructive. And whence can we have derived this term but from the Arabians, as they, without doubt, had themselves derived it from the Chaldees, the grand original cultivators at once of babiloniaw, geometry, and idolatry? The identity of Nimrod with the constellation Orion is not to be rejected.
Now, as the language of Jeremiah, already quoted, would indicate that Babylon was the primal source from which all these systems of idolatry flowed, so the deductions of the most learned historians, on mere historical grounds have led to the same conclusion.
That name is commonly derived from the Sanscrit, Div babilonis, “to shine,”–only a different form of Shivwhich has the same meaning, which again comes from the Chaldee Ziv”brightness or splendour” Dan 2: Back Table of Contents Forward moza butterfly. 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 us 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 of the New.

Kennedy objects to the application of the name “Eko Deva” to the triform alexanedr in the cave-temple at Elephanta, on the ground that that name belongs only to the supreme Brahm.
This is manifest from babilonia very name Brahm, appropriated by them to the one infinite and eternal God. 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 hiwlop of Brahma–the visible representative and manifestation of the invisible Brahm, and identified with him– they alone came from the mouth of the creative God.
In the “Institutes of Xlexander he is characterised as “He whom the mind alone can perceive; whose essence eludes the external organs, who has no visible parts, who exists from eternity But in so doing he is entirely inconsistent, for he admits that Brahma, the first person in that triform image, is identified with the supreme Brahm; and further, that a curse is pronounced upon all who distinguish between Brahma, Vishnu, and Seva, the three divinities represented by that image.

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.
While this had been the original way in which Pagan idolatry had represented the Triune God, and though this kind of representation had survived to Sennacherib’s time, yet there is evidence that, at a very early period, an important change had taken place in the Babylonian notions in regard to the divinity; and that the three persons had come to be, the Eternal Father, the Spirit of God incarnate in a human mother, and a Divine Son, the fruit of that incarnation.
All these separate facts–all these scattered testimonies, recur to that fruitful principle which places in the East the centre of science and civilisation. We have only to bring the ancient Babylonian Mysteries to bear on the whole system of Rome, and then it will be seen how immensely the one has borrowed from the other.
