With a sketch of his life and an astronomical introduction. This book is a collection of sermons delivered by the Rev. Robert Taylor. Everywhere he lectured he challenged the clergy to debate him. He was arrested for blasphemy and a persecution began. A Quaker banker took this opportunity to press a debt, and threw the orator into prison. It was there that he wrote the Diegesis and Syntagma.
