Of the two chiefe Trees in the Garden of Paradise

  • Walter Ralegh


For eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge was Adam driuen out of Paradise, in exilium vitœ temporalis, into the banishment of temporall life, saith Beda. That these trees of Life and Knowledge were materiall trees (though Figures of the Law and of the Gospell) it is not doubted by the most religious and learned writers: although the wits of men, which are so volatile, as nothing can fixe them, and so slipperie, as nothing can fasten them, haue in this also deliuered to the world an imaginarie doctrine.
