JERUSALEM UDER THE HIGH-PRIESTSFIVE LECTURES O THE PERIODBETWEE EHEMIAH ADTHE EW TESTAMETBY EDWY BE VATHIRD IMPRESSIOLODOEDWARD AROLD1 & 3 MADDOX STREET, BOD STREET W.1918PREFACETHE Lectures in this book were composed forpopular audiences in connection with the Bathand Wells Diocesan Society for Higher KeligiousEducation, and it is not their object to producewhat the professed historical student would regardas new results, but to give in a few strokes thegeneral outline and colour of a period which mustsurely have an interest for everybody who finds anyinterest in the Bible. Any one who should cometo a book of this sort for the elucidation of obscureproblems or matters of controversy would certainlybe disappointed ; it is on such points indeed thata work intended for students would chiefly fix itsscrutiny ; it has been my principle to neglect them,and try rather to show in a connected sketch whatis plain and assured. Many omissions which in aset history of the period would be unpardonablewill strike any specialist into whose hands the book 
 
may fall. And if he is inclined to ask, why at leastI did not give fuller treatment to this or that, I canonly answer that in the first instance the lectureswere cast with reference to limits of time, and thatafterwards I felt that to attempt to remedy theirincompleteness would be to embark on a work of ivPREFACE vwhich I did not see the issue. It seemed betterthat they should go out as they are, popularlectures, sketches, frankly limited in their scope,than make any pretence to be a complete historicalmanual. It seemed to me that even, as such, theymight be welcome to some of those people who,without being experts, are still interested in a periodso crucial for the history of our religion, especiallywhen I reflected that, were I asked to mention anybook which gave some brief account of it, in accord-ance with the present state of expert opinion, Ishould be somewhat at a loss to name one. Thosewho wish to make a serious study of the period will,of course, go to the books which give them acommand of the learned literature on the subject ;it is hardly necessary, even in England, to name thegreat cardinal work of Dr. Emil Schtirer. Thestudy of the more distinctively religious currents of the period has been greatly furthered and facilitatedby the work of Professor R. C. Charles, the recog-nised authority upon Jewish apocalyptic writings.I could wish that his translation of the book of Enoch were published in a popular form, whichwould make it more known, as it ought to be, by allthose who desire light upon the ew Testament.It is from this translation, I need hardly say,that my quotations from Enoch are taken. Thequotations from the Psalter of Solomon follow theversion by the Bishop of Winchester and Mr. M. R James (Ryle and James).I have tried, in making this sketch, to see things
 
VIPREFACEfor myself, to reproduce such an image as is madeupon a fresh mind by our documents. At the sametime, I have been continually conscious of my debtto the writers whose works have taught me. ThatI do not acknowledge my obligations more particu-larly in the course of the lectures is due simplyto their popular character. To the readers I havemostly in view such names as iese and Bousset, forinstance, would say nothing. Should any one towhom they are familiar light upon these lectures, hewill be able to discern to what extent I am indebtedI am not sure that I know with complete exacti-tude myself.E.
