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. "Lifted Up On High ..."(Part III, Discourse 5) in Training in Christianity, 226.

2. Ibid., 212. For both a sober pronouncement and a highly satiric jibe to typify S.K.'s critique, we have made a point of going not to the Attack proper but to a work of some four years earlier.

3. S.K.'s 1848 Preface to The Book on Adler, xx.

4. Papirer, 10:2:A:537 (1849) [my trans.--V.E.].

5. Point of View, 22-23.

6. Attack upon "Christendom," 34.

7. Papirer, 10:4:A:246 (1851), quoted in Diem, Dialectic, 178.

8. "Lifted Up on High ..." (Part III, Reflection 5) in Training in Christianity, 205.

9. Ibid., 206-8. This entire discourse is germane to the topic--as is the passage on 69ff. Part 2 of the same volume. Cf. "It Is Blessed Indeed--To Suffer Derision ..." (Pt III, Discourse 6) in Christian Discourses, 235.

10. Attack upon "Christendom," 63.

11. Dru Journals, 1309 (1854). Cf. Smith Journals, 11:1:A:68 (1854).

12. The expediti were crack troops of the Roman army, highly trained and disciplined, carrying the very minimum of gear so that they could move into trouble spots quickly and decisively. They were the ancient counterpart of storm troopers, commandos, or the Green Berets of the U.S. Special Forces.

13. Dru Journals, 941 (1849).

14. Diem, Dialectic, 157.
