Excerpt from Redemption: A Poem The subject of Redemption is briefly displayed. It is then asked, who is its Author? what his parentage? who is his Father? who his Mother? The poem proceeds to develope these points. God the Father, seated on his throne, surrounded by all the heavenly hosts, turning towards God the Son, announces that the time has arrived for perfecting the redemption of man. The Son accepts the task, and sends the archangel Abdiel, to Joachim, to inform him that his wife, Anne, is chosen to be the mother of Mary. The immaculate conception. The Devil, seated on his throne as prince of this world, discerns an unusual commotion in the region of Palestine; he proceeds to examine into its cause; he sees the new created Frond; recognizes in it the second Eve, mother of the second Adam, and seeks to taint it in its incipiency, but is detected by the archangel Gabriel, and put to flight without having attained his object.
