"7. Certain crimes are committed more immediately against God himself;
others, against the state; and a third kind against certain persons. The
chief crime in the first class, cognizable by temporal courts, is
blasphemy, under which may be included atheism. This crime consists in
denying or vilifying the Deity, by speech or writing. All who curse God
or any of the persons of the blessed Trinity, are to suffer death, even
for a single act; and those who deny him (sic), if they persist in their
denial. The denial of a providence, or of the authority of the holy
Scriptures, is punishable capitally for the third offence."
[1771 edition of Encyclopedia Brittanica,
under Law: Tit. 33 "Of crimes"]
