dc.descriptionIn this essay, Brother Mobberly addresses the question of whether it is possible to serve God and own human beings. He cites Biblical passages that justify the authority of owners, the duty of obedience by enslaved people, and natural inequalities among animals. His racial theory rests primarily on his belief that the descendants of Noah were progenitors of the races and focuses particularly on the Africans as descendants of Cham. This volume includes a transcript of an essay on the sorcery of Cham's descendants and racial categories by Oliver Goldsmith, A History of Sorcery and Animated Nature (1812).
