Oedipus Judaicus 1811
1811. In this work it is found the author has adopted the opinion that the Sacred Writers wrote chiefly, if not entirely, allegorical compositions. He recollects that Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians; and he expected to find traces of that wisdom in his works. The learned among the ancient Egyptians were pure theists. They were deeply skilled in the sciences; but they carefully concealed their mysterious learning under innumerable symbols and allegories. May we not look for the same things in the writings which are ascribed to the Jewish lawgiver? This is what Drummond has done in this book.
