1 THE TWO BABYLONS . BY. ALEXANDER HISLOP. THE FULL HISLOP. COMPILED, FORMATTED AND EDITED BY. AVRAM YEHOSHUA. THE FULL HISLOP. The Full Hislop is my PDF version of Alexander Hislop's classic, The Two BABYLONS . It has all the words and footnotes that Hislop has in his book, as well as his 61 illustrations. The online editions (as well as the newer paperback editions of his book) leave out more than half of Hislop's notes,1 and have, for the most part, the dreaded endnote.' The online editions and the newer books also truncate many of his notes, not presenting all of Hislop's words and citations, and don't fully cite references within the main body of Hislop's book. The Full Hislop has every note of Hislop's and its full con- tent, which adds to the depth and richness of his research.
2 All the notes in The Full Hislop are aligned with Hislop's note symbol and page number so that one can easily check any note for accuracy and cite it, or any text within the book, with confidence if the need should arise. I've also aligned the pages in his book with the pages in this work (the Tables of Contents, and in the notes). The only thing that isn't in this version is his seven page Index at the back of his book. Anytime that I insert my thoughts it will be in the notes section, preceded by my first name, Avram.'2. Most of the online editions, and the newer editions of his book, don't have his illustrations, which are vital to seeing and fully understanding what Hislop presents. They are all present within this work, which also includes Hislop's extensive bibliography (Editions of Works) and his List of Illustrations, which don't appear in most online editions, as well as Hislop's two Prefaces and an editor's reflec- tions after Hislop's death (Note by the Editor).
3 Hislop's two Prefaces are significant because they explain the overall concept of his book, as well as give understanding into how the Lord brought it about, and his Editions of Works reveals the massive foundation upon which he built. The Two BABYLONS is the culmination of several hundred years worth of study into paganism and the Roman Catholic Church, as well as the ancient classics. Hislop could not have written what he did without the research of others before him, but he was the man that God not only ordained to gather it all up into one volume, but to tie all the loose ends together with such precision and penetrating insight. Making this work available to God's people was a labor of love unto our Lord and an honor for Every time that I read The Two BABYLONS I am amazed at the extent of ancient paganism, the brazen- ness of the apostate Catholic Church, and the ways of Satan, who wants us to walk in his darkness, thinking it God's Light.
4 May Messiah Yeshua open our eyes to the reality of the Darkness that pervades this world, especially in all her religious institutions, Avram Yehoshua Ramat Gan, Israel 14 April 2012. 1. Avram: For instance, on p. 19 of Hislop's book there are three footnotes, none of which appear in the online edition that I used as a foundation for this work. On p. 20 there are seven footnotes, four of which aren't in the online edition, and the three that it has fail to provide citations for the authors that Hislop cites, so one is left with an author's name (if it even has that), but no book or page number. Of Hislop's six notes on p. 21, the online edition leaves out three of them, and of the three it has, it again fails to provide citations for the authors that Hislop speaks of.
5 This is an all too common problem with online editions. Another problem is that it fails to cite the book and page number when Hislop cites authors in the main body of his text the on- line edition will have the name of the author (most of the time), but no book, nor page number. 2. Avram: By the year 2000 Hislop had come under attack by a former admirer named Ralph Woodrow. To read his criticism of Hislop, and my rebuttal to him, see: , or ask me for the two PDFs, Woodrow's Critique of Hislop, and Avram's Critique of Woodrow. 3. Avram: The Full Hislop is meant to be read on a computer, where one can enlarge the font size if it's not as large as one might like. It can also be printed out on A4 size paper, and letter size paper may also work fine. iii THE TWO BABYLONS .

HAD the lamented author been spared to superintend the issue of the Fourth Edition of his work, it is probable he would have felt himself called upon to say something in reference to the political and ec- clesiastical events that have occurred since the publication of the last edition.
10 By the authoritative pro- mulgation of the dogma of the Pope's Infallibility, his argument as to the time of the slaying of the Witnesses, and his identification of the Roman pontiff as the legitimate successor of Belshazzar, have been abundantly confirmed. It is gratifying to the author's friends to know that the work has been so favorably received hitherto, and that no one, so far as we are aware, has ventured to challenge the accuracy of the historical proofs adduced in support of the startling announcement of the title page, but it is deplorable to think that, notwithstanding all the revelations made from time to time of the true character and origin of Popery, Ritualism still makes progress in the Churches, and that men of the highest influence in the State are so infatuated as to seek to strengthen their political position by giving countenance to a system of idolatry.
