In Dru’s and in Rohde’s selections from Kierkegaard’s journals, the number identifies an entry rather than a page; the date following is that of the particular entry.

1. Rohde Journals, 180 (1854).

3. It is gathered and analyzed in Durnbaugh, "The Genius of the Early Brethren," Brethren Life and Thought, IV, 2 (Spring 1959), 13-14.

4. Michael Frantz, op.cit., stanzas 471-80, 498-500.

5. Naas, in a hymn quoted by Brumbaugh, op.cit., 127, stanza 10.

6. Jacob Stoll, op.cit., 54.

7. The word "apparent" is here used advisedly. The Brethren doctrine did not deny the reality (and a very live awareness) of a punishment following death. Ultimately, then, the matter comes down to the rather fine distinction as to whether that punishment is everlasting or only longlasting; and the terminology used by these three men is not in every case absolutely beyond dispute.

8. Mack Senior, Rights and Ordinances, in Durnbaugh, Origins, 399-400.

9. Papirer, 11:3:B:57 (1854), quoted in Malantschuk, op.cit., 95.

10. Smith Journals, 11:1:A:296 (1854).
