Jacob Bryant was an 18th-century English historian known for his expertise on classical mythology. He sought to connect all origins of mythology (Greek, Roman, and Egyptian) and how they related to Hebrew scriptures and the stories in Genesis. His first published work; however, was Bryant’s vicious attacks on the works and opinions of Bible scholars – Samuel Bochart, Hugo Grotius, and Theodore Beza.

 

This work, ‘Observations and Inquiries Relating to Various Parts of Ancient History’, consists of three distinct essays concerning curious topics:

  • On Euroclydon – Biblical wind mentioned by Luke, which blows in the Mediterranean Sea
  • On Melite Illyrica and Melita Africana – Mediterranean islands on which Bryant seeks to prove St. Paul was shipwrecked
  • On Ancient Egyptian cities from the Bible – geography and history of Goshen, Zoan, Onium, and Heliopolis

Other notable topics, according to Blackmer, include the Shepherd Kings, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Babylonians, and Edomites.
