It was penned among a people comparatively rude- with little literature except that which is found in their own sacred writings, and with little or no science- in a land where the prevailing institutions, habits and opinions, were exceedingly unlike those of modern times- with no apparent anticipation on the part of the writers that the productions of their pens would be subjected to the rigid scrutiny of enlightened future ages, and no underlying idea that the doctrines and laws of the book would ever need to be adjusted to institutions and opinions which would spring up in far distant ages, and in lands of whose existence these writers never dreamed.It has come down to us through the darkest ages of the world, and has brought along with itself many of the opinions of those ages on moral subjects, and many of the interpretations which were affixed to it in those times.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
