Example text

At Christmas in 1725, at the height of the controversy over the “Short Chronicle,” Stukeley recalled a discussion he had with Newton about Solomon’s Temple. Newton showed him some drawings of the Temple,156 and it is possible that this was Babson MS 0434 that Newton showed Stukeley; although in the course of this conversation, recalled by Stukeley, they discussed a style of architecture which is not mentioned in Babson MS 0434. Stukeley claimed that although they had not discussed the details of the Temple, they both agreed that it was not like any other design.

Despite its flaws, “Dissertation” is a highly significant manuscript. It gives an insight into Newton’s vast understanding of ancient sources and measurements, and his working methods. Chapter 6 “An Overview of the Contents and the Source of Babson MS 0434” outlines the structure of the manuscript, then it examines the sources of Babson MS 0434, which further reveal the depth of Newton’s knowledge and reading. Like “Dissertation”, Babson MS 0434, is a working document and it was never completed.

There is a small unfinished manuscript on the work by Lull, the first heading being “Ex Raymundi Seu de Quintessentiji” which is a set of notes on the separation of the elements. This is followed by “Ex Raymundi Lulli Libro Mercuriorum”. 181 Newton strongly believed in prisca sapientia and that the ancients had understood the true system of natural philosophy. However, he believed this knowledge had been lost through the subsequent corruption of the true religion. Since he believed that the Emerald Tablet was a text that was dated to the times before Moses, Newton considered it to be less corrupt and closer to the pure knowledge of the original religion of Noah.
