    More Information: Prideaux, Humphrey (1648Ð1724), dean of Norwich and author. "Prideaux's Old and New Testament Connected is a much larger work, covering the history of the Jews from 747 BC to AD 33 in two parts, divided at 292 BC, when the Old Testament canon was complete. Here too Prideaux had, as his preface acknowledges, one of the great seventeenth-century scholars to guide him, James Ussher in his Annales veteris et novi testamenti (1650Ð54). However, unlike Ussher (or Pococke), Prideaux aimed to make things easy for the general reader by writing clearly and fully in English, with translated quotations and without exotic words; so the Connection, while outdated in execution and perhaps conception, continued to be printed into the mid-nineteenth century."[ODNB]          ESTC t153670.
