Remarks on the Prophetic Visions in the Book of Daniel

English Biblical Scholar and Theologian

Why Read This Book




This work of Sameul P. Tregelles originally appeared in separate portions, at different times, from 1845 to 1847. Later it was published in one volume and reprinted numerous times afterward. We have used the fourth edition for our text. As for the contents, the book's title speaks for itself. It is to our loss if we ignore what the prophet Daniel has to say to us in "these latter days."

Samuel Prideaux Tregelles (1813-1875) was a Nineteenth Century scholar of the highest order. His works include, The Englishman's Greek Concordance, The Englishman's Hebrew and Chaldee Concordance, and an English translation of Gesenius' Hebrew Lexicon. His book, Remarks on the Prophetic Visions in the Book of Daniel, is of great interest; and we here offer those portions of most interest--among them: the visions themselves, notes on the extent of the Roman empire, and the day-year theory. (Note: The text has not been modified, but punctuation and some spelling has been modernized, KJV-era verbs updated, and several long paragraphs divided.)
