The Pope has not merely a chair to sit in; but he has a chair to be carried in, in pomp and state, on men’s shoulders, when he pays a visit to St. About was he raised to the position which gave him, in Pagan estimation, the power of the keys referred to.

Then the adoration claimed by Alexander the Great evidently came from this source.
From this, he derives the argument that the mystery religions of Late Antiquity were actually offshoots of one ancient aa founded at the Tower of Babel.

In this character he was said to have ” jus vertendi cardinis “–the “power of turning the hinge”–of opening the doors of heaven, or of opening or shutting the gates of peace or war upon earth.
The nature of the case, and the history of the Mysteries, alike show that this book could be none other than the “Book Pet-Roma”; that is, the “Book of the Grand Interpreter,” in other words, of Hermes Trismegistus, the great “Interpreter of the Gods.
