This translation has been made by Dorothy Lenn with the
assistance of Owen Barfield from the revised 3rd edition of the German
text-published under the title, “Die Geheimnisse der biblischen
Schöpfungsgeschichte.” For the convenience of English readers
quotations from the Bible have been given in the words of the English
Authorised Version, or if this has seemed impracticable, the Authorised
Version has been given in a footnote.
