  This manual describes Isabelle's formalization of Higher-Order Logic, a
  polymorphic version of Church's Simple Theory of Types.  HOL can be best
  understood as a simply-typed version of classical set theory.  See also
  \emph{Isabelle/HOL --- The Tutorial} for a gentle introduction on using
  Isabelle/HOL, and the \emph{Isabelle Reference Manual} for general Isabelle
