Meet the Author

Alexander Hislop (1807-1865) was a Free Church of Scotland minister infamous for his outspoken criticisms of the Roman Catholic Church. He was the son of Stephen Hislop (died 1837), a mason by occupation and an elder of the Relief Church. Alexander's brother was also named Stephen Hislop (lived 1817-1863) and became well known in his time as a missionary to India and a naturalist. Alexander was for a time parish schoolmaster of Wick, Caithness. In 1831 he married Jane Pearson. He was for a time editor of the Scottish Guardian newspaper. As a probationer he joined the Free Church of Scotland at the Disruption of 1843. He was ordained in 1844 at the East Free Church, Arbroath, where he became senior minister in 1864. He died of a paralytic stroke the next year after being ill for about two years. He wrote several books, his most famous being The Two Babylons: Papal worship Revealed to be the worship of Nimrod and His wife.

    Excellent-well researched.

    this is an excellent book-tells what the roman catholic church is really based on. i never realized the rituals went back as far as they do or what they were based on. a must read for any real bible student.

    Worth every effort to read

    You will refer to this publication time and again for its thorough research and convincing proof of the origins of many common features in popular religion today--including symbols and celebrations. It definitely has stood the test of time. ENJOY!
