Excerpt from The Temple or the Tomb: Giving Further Evidence in Favour of the Authenticity of the Present Site of the Holy Sepulchre, and Pointing Out Some of the Principal Misconceptions Contained in Fergusson's 'Holy Sepulchre' and 'the Temples of the Jews' During the last fifteen years a vast amount of real information has been collected together concerning the sacred sites and existing buildings round about Jerusalem, which has in a great measure narrowed the old limits of controversy on topographical points, and left the various antagonists free to grapple more fully, and at leisure, with subjects of detail which a few years since could not be approached with any prospect of success, for want of knowledge of the general outlines. On no theory have recent discoveries exercised so great an effect as on that original and bold hazard of Mr. Fergusson, the proposal that on the site of Solomon's Temple is the Sepulchre of our Lord; for to all who know anything of the subject, every additional item of information which recent years has afforded, has only more clearly demonstrated how entirely chimerical and illusory his views are, until at last the only sentiment remaining, is wonder why he should not abandon his theory in as cheerful a manner as practicable under the circumstances.
