The theologians of the English Church, accepting the doctrine of a personal Satan as a part of their Catholic inheritance, have given but little attention to its consideration and defence ; while American writers who have touched on the subject, have been mainly echoes of the German Neologists. A recent American author evidently ignorant of the actual facts in the case, says, " It is now commonly agreed, I think, that Satan as primarily conceived, is not the devil at all. He seems to be a Persian conception, and was adopted into Jewish thought, perhaps in the time of the captivity." Whatever may be " commonly agreed" upon by such as take their opinions second hand, the fact is, that the common consensus of a very large and increasing body of those most competent to form an opinion on the whole subject, is in favor of upholding the ancient faith with re gard to the Person and Kingdom of Satan.
