The Ages of Man

J. A. Burrow

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses historians, preachers, and exegetes who employ a variety of schemes and seek to relate the ages of Man to temporal patterns observable elsewhere. These patterns can be the cycles of the year, month, and day, and the linear time of history. Thus the most widely known of these schemes relates the six ages of the individual man to the six ages of history.

Keywords:   historians, preachers, exegetes, schemes, Man, temporal patterns, linear time, six ages, history
