'The Old and New Testament connected in the History of the Jews' was a significant work which drew on James Ussher (a prolific Irish scholar who most famously published a chronology that purported to establish the time and date of the creation as the night preceding Sunday, 23 October 4004 BC, according to the proleptic Julian calendar). This work by Prideaux was among the earliest English books to use the term 'Vulgar Era,' though Kepler used the term as early as 1635. It covered the historical interval between the Old and New Testaments, and led to a controversy between Prideaux and his cousin, Walter Moyle (English politician and political writer, an advocate of classical republicanism). Swiss theologian and Biblical scholar Jean Le Clerc (1657 - 1736) wrote a critical examination of it, which was published in English in 1722. Buchnummer des Verkäufers KKK-0241-380
