"In order to be satisfied what is true religion, we must go up to the fountain-head as much as possible. The first religion undoubtedly is true, as coming immediately from God."
"We have seen by our description, that the plan of which Abury is built, that sacred hierogram of the Egyptians and other ancient nations, the circle and snake... The temple of old made in the form of a serpent, were called for that reason, Dracontia. The universality of this regard for serpents, shews the high antiquity of the symbol, and that it was antediluvian."
