Laocoön by William Blake


If Morality was Christianity Socrates was the Saviour

יה [Jehovah] & his two Sons Satan & Adam as they were copied from the Cherubim
of Solomons Temple by three Rhodians & applied to Natural Fact, or History of Ilium
Art Degraded Imagination Denied War Governed the Nations


Good & Evil are
Riches & Poverty a Tree of
Generation & Death

The Gods of Priam are the Cherubim of Moses & Solomon: The Hosts
of Heaven

Without Unceasing Practise nothing can be done Practise is Art
If you leave off you are Lost

The Angel of the Divine Presence

מלאך יהוה [Angel of Jehovah]

ΟΦΙουΧος [Serpent-holder]

called SIN by the Deist SCIENCE
All that we See is Vision
from Generated Organs gone as soon as come
Permanent in The Imagination; Considerd
as Nothing by the

What can be Created
Can be Destroyed
Adam is only
The Natural Man
& not the Soul
or Imagination


לילית [Lilith]

Satans Wife The Goddess Nature is War & Misery & Heroism a Miser

Spiritual War
Israel deliverd from Egypt
is Art deliverd from
Nature & Imitation

A Poet a Painter a Musician an Architect : the Man
Or Woman who is not one of these is not a Christian
You must leave Fathers & Mothers & Houses & Lands if they stand in the way of Art

The Eternal Body of Man is The IMAGINATION, that is God himself
The Divine Body } ישע [Yeshua] JESUS we are his

It manifests itself in his Works of Art (In Eternity All is Vision)
The True Christian Charity not dependent on Money (the lifes blood of Poor Families)
that is on Caesar or Empire or Natural Religion
Money, which is The Great Satan or Reason
the Root of Good & Evil
In The Accusation of Sin

Prayer is the Study of Art Praise is the Practise of Art
Fasting &c. all relate to Art The outward Ceremony is Antichrist

Where any view of Money exists Art cannot be carried on, but War only
Read Matthew C X. 9 & 10v
by pretences to the Two Impossibilities Chastity & Abstinence Gods of the Heathen

He repented that he had made Adam
(of the Female, the Adamah)
& it grieved him at his heart

Art can never exist without
Naked Beauty displayed
The Gods of Greece & Egypt were Mathematical
See Plato’s

Divine Union
And Denying Immediate
Communion with God
The Spoilers say
Where are his Works
That he did in the Wilderness
Lo what are these
Whence came they
These are not the Works
Of Egypt nor Babylon
Whose Gods are the Powers
Of this World. Goddess, Nature.
Who first spoil & then destroy
Imaginative Art
For their Glory is
War and Dominion
Empire against Art See Virgils Eneid.
Lib. VI.v 848
For every
Is Useless

There are States
in which. all
Visionary Men
are accounted
Mad Men
such are
Greece & Rome
Such is
or Tax
See Luke Ch 2.v l

Jesus & his Apostles & Disciples were all Artists Their Works were destroyd by the
Seven Angels of the Seven Churches in Asia Antichrist Science
The unproductive Man is not a Christian much less the Destroyer

The Old & New Testaments are the Great Code of Art
SCIENCE is the Tree of DEATH
ART is the Tree

The Whole Business of Man Is
The Arts & All Things Common
No Secre
sy in Art
What we call Antique Gems are the Gems of Aarons Breast Plate
Christianity is Art & not Money
Money is its Curse
Is not every Vice possible to Man
described in the Bible openly
All is not Sin that Satan calls so
all the Loves & Graces of Eternity
