EARLY BRITISH HISTORY. From some time after the Flood, probably about 2000 B.C. onwards, Nordic peoples, such as Phoenicians, Trojans and Israelites (it always seems to be taken for granted that the Nordic people are descendants of Japheth but, while admitting to not having made any extensive investigation into the subject, the only evidence the writer has come across suggests that they are descendants of Shem) had been sailing west from the eastern Mediterranean and both settling in and trading with the other Mediterranean coastal areas, Spain, the British Isles, Western and North-Western Europe. During the last centuries B.C. quite a number of Jews settled in Spain and they were probably the main ancestors of the "Spanish" or Sephardim Jews. Now let us turn to British history. In about 1800 B . C . , Hu Gadarn is said to have led the first colony of Cymri to Britain from Defrobane, where Constantinople stands. In the Welsh Triads he is said to have mnemonically systematised the Wisdom of the ancestors of the people he led west. This is the educational system adopted by the Druids. The members of the order were the statesmen, legislators, priests, physicians, lawyers, teachers, and poets of the country. Britain became the headquarters of the druid religion which appears to have been similar to the old patriarchal religion of the East. The motto of the Druidic world was: "The Truth against the World." Hu Gadarn was regarded as the personification of intellectual culture and to him has been attributed the founding of Stonehenge and the introduction of several arts, including glass-making and writing in Ogham characters. On his standard was depicted the Ox and this may have been the origin of John Bull. In 1185 B.C. Troy fell and most of the survivors joined their kinsmen who were already in this country, but it was not until 1136 B.C. that Brutus set out for Britain and landed at Totnes, the oldest seaport in Devon. Brutus codified the laws of Britain and Lord Chief Justice Coke says: "The original laws of this land were composed of such elements as Brutus first selected from the ancient Greek and Trojan institutions." In passing it may be of interest to note that a Trojan law of Brutus is that the sceptre of this isle may be held by a queen as well as a king. We do not have the Salic Law prohibiting women from ruling. The next king who left his mark upon our history was Molmutius, about 450 B . C . , who was famous for his road-making and his laws. Lord Chief Justice Coke, in his Origin of the Common Law of England, says that "the Molmutius laws have been always regarded as the foundation and bulwark of British liberties." At the time of the Roman invasion there were forty Druidic centres of learning, which were also the capitals of the forty tribes. The students at these colleges numbered at times as many as sixty thousand of the youth and young nobility of Britain and Gaul. It required twenty years to master the complete circle of Druidic knowledge, which included natural philosophy, astronomy, mathematics, geometry, medicine, jurisprudence, poetry and oratory. In those days Britain was thickly populated. In 55 B.C., and again in 54 B . C . , Caesar tried to occupy Britain because he found that in all his wars with the Gauls they were receiving assistance from Britain, which country seems to have been regarded among the Celtic nations as a sort of Holy Land. But he was so roughly handled that, when, in the following century Rome again decided to invade, the memory of it caused a mutiny of the legions gathered for the purpose. This is an event unparalleled in the annals of Roman obedience, just as the decisive double expulsion of Caesar is still without parallel in British history. Claudius, the emperor, sent his favourite freedman and minister, a eunuch called Narcissus, to the scene and his taunts stung the legions into embarking. There now ensued a tremendous war lasting many years, in which the Britons were fighting the whole might of the Roman Empire, under its finest generals. By this time Britain was becoming Christian. There are grounds for believing that our Lord spent some time in Britain, including a couple of years at Glastonbury, before taking up his ministry. But after the Crucifixion, Joseph of Arimathea led a party to Britain and, in about 37 A . D . started a Christian church at Glastonbury. The Druid religion was one which naturally merged into Christianity and the Christian faith received a ready response here. From the start members of the royal families set an example in embracing the faith and in missionary work. The British had some remarkable leaders, notably the King Caradoc or Caractacus. He was eventually handed over to the Romans in fetters, due to the treachery of the Queen of the Brigantes in Yorkshire and taken to Rome with his family, but such was the reputation he had acquired in seven years of fighting that, when he entered Rome, he did so amidst the excitement of the three million inhabitants who blocked up the line of the procession to obtain a view of the formidable and illustrious captive, and: — " . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Rome trembled When she saw the Briton, though fast in chains." The preservation of Caradoc forms a solitary exception to the policy of the Romans of casting captive kings and generals into the Tarpeian dungeons to be done to death. Instead he was spared on condition that he never bore arms against Rome again and a residence of seven years in Rome, in free custody, was imposed on him. He lived in the British Palace with his family, some of whom were already Christians, and thus the British Palace became the centre of Christianity in Rome. So, when St. Paul arrived in Rome, there was already a Christian Church there in which St. Paul ministered. In II Timothy iv, 21, St. Paul mentions Pudens, Linus and Claudia. Linus was Caradoc's second son and he became the first Bishop of Rome. Claudia was daughter of Caradoc and Pudens, a Roman, was her husband. After the capture of Caradoc, the Britons carried on the war under the leadership of his cousin, Arviragus. Eventually, in 120 A . D . , Britain was incorporated with the Roman dominions, but, by treaty, not by conquest. The British retained their kings, land, laws and rights but accepted a Roman nucleus of the army for the defence of the realm. Finally, in 410 A . D . , the Romans abandoned Britain altogether. Professor Huxley says that, during the occupation of Britain by the Romans, the British led a life as separate as possible from the invaders and that, when the Romans left, the population was as substantially Celtic as when they came. From the start at Glastonbury the Christian faith spread and endured in the British Isles and, in the second century A . D . , the British became the first officially Christian nation. It is significant that the Romans were not in the habit of interfering with the religions they found about the Empire but they went to great lengths at times to try to stamp out Druidism and Christianity. A Druidic triad familiar to the Greeks and Romans was: "Three duties of every man: Worship G o d ; be just to all men; die for your country." It was this last duty which caused Rome to mark Druidism for destruction because it ran counter to the Roman idea of universal dominion and the merging of all nationalities into their conception of one world. They failed in Britain and eventually the Christian faith was carried all over Europe, including Rome, largely by the missionary efforts of the British. Constantine the Great was born and educated in Britain. His mother was Helena, a devout British Christian and daughter of King Coel of Eastern Britain. At one time Constantine served with St. George under Galerius in the Egyptian and Persian campaigns and, between the two young Christian soldiers, a lasting friendship was formed. Later, Constantine was proclaimed Emperor in Britain, at York in 306 B . C . {sc.: A.D.} and set out, supported by native British troops, to conquer and Christianise the Roman Empire and "plant the Cross of Christ on the throne of the Caesars." (See George of Lydda.) Later Britain was invaded by the Jutes and the Angles. The Angles, being the most numerous, gave their name, in this country, to the whole group which was known on the Continent as the Saxons. The Anglo-Saxons were not Christians but neither were they pagans. They believed in a Divine or Infinite Being and had a religion derived, it may be concluded, from the same patriarchal source as the Druids, because the Druidic religion had not yet died out in Britain and the Saxons appear to have found enough similarity between their own form of worship and that of ancient Britain to allow them to unite under the ministrations of a Druidic hierarchy. The Saxons were Nordic like the British, the Danes, the Vikings and the Normans. The Saxons looked with suspicion on the efforts of the people they were trying to subjugate, to convert them to Christianity and so they were still non-Christian when, in 597, Pope Gregory sent the Augustinian mission here to introduce the Latin form of Christianity. It is possible that, the civil power of Rome being dead, the ambitious Romans were anxious to exercise the universal dominion to which they had been accustomed, through the ecclesiastical power which began to rise on its ruins. It is interesting and important to note that, under the Druidic system, the British people had become the most civilised people in the world and the most tolerant and humane. Greek and Roman writers acknowledge the British Druids as world leaders in the study of astronomy and science. The British Church developed directly from the ministrations of the Apostles, Joseph of Arimathea, Simon Zelotes, Aristobulus, St. Paul and possibly St. Peter, and consequently owed nothing to Rome. The British clergy, or Culdees, based their ministry on the Scriptures or Word of God, to which they adhered closely, and strongly objected to the Romish ritual, superstitions and wealth and power gathering hierarchical system. This opposition to the Roman system never ceased and was the main cause of Britain being the first country to throw off the Roman stranglehold at the time of the Reformation and to open up the Word of God to the people again. When Augustine arrived, the British Church was strongly represented in the province of the Angles by an archbishopric, seven bishoprics and a great number of abbeys with most devout prelates. The British Church strongly resented the intrusion of an emissary of the Pope and, at a Council held shortly after his arrival, they told Augustine that "they knew no other Master than Christ", and that "they liked not his new-fangled customs" and refused submission. They were as good as their word and maintained the liberty of their Church for five hundred years after his time, being the last of the Churches of Europe to give up their power to Rome. But Augustine met with some success among the Saxons and, by favour of the Saxon king, Ethelbert, the Roman Church was set up at Canterbury. It was the origin of the Church known to-day as the Church of England and it will be noted that it is quite distinct from the origin of the British Church, which was 560 years earlier. Under Alfred the Great the Gospels had been issued in the native tongue but as the Roman Church gained dominance it took all possible steps to confine the Scriptures to the Latin tongue and to destroy all British manuscripts that fell into its hands. The kings, people and ordinary clergy, or Culdees, of Britain, however, never fully accepted the spiritual suzerainty of Rome and altogether refused to acknowledge political ascendancy. The gradual build up of this resistance ended in the Reformation. Also it was the struggle for religious rights which opened men's eyes to all their rights and led them to withstand political oppression. ...
