    • 1829 CE, Algernon Herbert, Nimrod, page 10:
      I believe that most of the books of the Auditors were fabricated after the Christian æra, either by Judaizing Gnostics and hæretics, or by Jew rabbis, whose cry was, “ His blood be upon us and upon our children,” and who were daily plunging deeper in superstition and blasphemy, in disbelief and hatred of the truth, in the fond belief of whatever was most ridiculous and impossible, and in the concoction of the literatures called Rabbinical and Cabalistical, whereof we can hardly believe the composition possible when we behold it actual.
