Syntagma of the Evidences of the Christian Religion by Robert Taylor

Thou hast in this Pamphlet all the sufficient evidence, that can be adduced for any piece of history a thousand years standing, that such a person as Jesus Christ never existed; but that the earliest Christians meant the words to be nothing more than a personification of the principle of reason, of goodness, or that principle, be it what it may, which may most benefit mankind in the passage through life.

About the Author

Robert Taylor was an ordained minister who renounced Christianity and left the priesthood after researching Christianity's true origin. A gifted orator and writer, he distributed a manifesto in 1824 and publicly challenged all ministers and preachers to come forward and show any evidence refuting the following 4 propositions:

1. That the Scriptures of the New Testament were not written by the persons whose names they bear.
2. That they did not appear in the times to which they refer.
3. That the persons, of whom they treat, never existed.
4. That the events which they relate, never happened.

In reply to Taylor's MANIFESTO (reprinted at the beginning in this book), John Pye Smith, D.D., wrote a book titled, "An Answer To A Printed Paper Entitled MANIFESTO of the CHRISTIAN EVIDENCE SOCIETY."

And they threw Robert Taylor in jail.

In jail Robert Taylor wrote this book, "Syntagma of the Evidences of the Christian Religion", which is his reply to the book by John Pye Smith.

Robert Taylor's writings are very fun to read, as he was quite gifted and very intelligent and extremely well educated.

After writing his SYNTAGMA, Robert Taylor went on to write his magnum opus, THE DIEGESIS, which is a thoroughly researched masterpiece on the Origin, Evidences, and Early History of Christianity, which is quite a delightful read.
