Isaac Newton’s Observations on the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John a Critical Edition
1999 0-7734-8155-9
Setting Newton firmly in the political and religious culture of his time, Dr. Barnett’s substantial Introduction to this new edition of the Observations takes the reader systematically through the main components of the work, demonstrating how Newton’s exegetical and prophetico-historical framework was constructed to support his ardent anti-Anglican Church views. This volume provides the original text and format of the 1733 edition of Newton’s Observations, translations of the lengthy Latin sections (and of the few, but important, Greek and Hebrew phrases) provided in the footnotes, and glossary and guide to his various calendar conventions.
