A Theological Dictionary
Charles Buck (1771-1815)
Published by James Kay and John I. Kay & Co.
Philadelphia and Pittsburgh 1831
This American edition of Buck's dictionary updated previous editions by the inclusion of illustrations featuring scenes of painful persecution and Christian martyrdom. Indeed, the illustrations' imagery is part of a long historical tradition reaching back to the Reformation and persecution of early Protestants. Oddly enough, the publishers felt such matters were the only ones that would provide "sufficiently interesting variety."
