 "The Great Assembly on the Day of Judgment shall be as the day of creation. . . . All things shall be restored on the day of decision," Thus an apocryphal text given in M.R. James, The Apocryphal New Testament (Oxford, 1925), p. 512. The scriptures, like the apocrypha, are full of this theme. For a striking pagan parallel, W. Golther gives a most enlightening discussion of the customs of the ancient North in his edition of Are's Icelandbook (Halle, 1923), pp. 7ff.
