First published in 1935, this classic compilation provides a connected account of the theological literature of the Church of England during the 17th Century. Particularly invaluable to scholars and students, it contains a considerable number of passages which have not been printed since the original time of writing. In addition, since the doctrines of the Church of England have never been defined by the thinking of single theologian like Luther or Calvin, there has been always need to consult a considerable range of writings in order to resolve questions of doctrine and practice. This book brings together just such a range, providing a comprehensive insight into the theology of 17th Century Anglicanism.
