CONTENTS.

VOL. II.

CHAP. VII.

Of the four first apocalyptic trumpets.
The Seven apocalyptic trumpets may be divided into the four,
which
prepare

the
way

for the revelation of the man of sin;
and the three which comprehend the whole history of the
Apostasy in its dominant state both in the East and in the
West, and which are styled zoe-trumpets, p. 3.-The silence
at the opening of the seventh seal indicates the anxious
expectation of the troubles about to be produced by the
sounding of the trumpets, p. 5.-By the sounding of the four
first trumpets, he, that letted or prevented the revelation of
the man of sin, is taken out of the way, p. 7.--At the
sounding of the first trumpet, the Northern nations, under
Alaric, Radagaisus, and Attila, overrun the Roman Empire,
p. 8.-- At the sounding of the second, Genseric king of the
Vandals assaults the Western Empire from the South, and
hurls it from its base, like a huge blazing mountain, p. 16.
At the sounding of the third, the line of the Western Cesars
becomes extinct in the person of Augustulus, p. 18.–At the
sounding of the fourth, the Roman Empire, considered as
one great whole, experiences an eclipse of its power and
splendor, by the downfal of its Western half, p. 22. --State-
ment of the grounds, on which this explanation of the four
first trumpets is adopted in preference to that of Bp. New-
ton, p. 24
