Amongst those," says Adelung, “who in this age (that of Elizabeth) carried the English language to the greatest perfection, Richard Hooker, a celebrated divine, deserves particularly to be noticed. He exhihited a fine model of the reasoning style in his famous Ecclesiastical Polity, a work that reflects high credit on his powers of reasoning, and the extent of his learning. In this admirable production he set a noble example to his successors, an example successfully followed by a Chillingworth, a Locke, and a Hoadley."
"THE ADAMANTINE AND IMPERISHABLE WORK OF HOOKER IS HIS ECCLESIASTICAL POLITY. Bishop Lowth, in the preface to his English Grammar, has bestowed the highest praise upon the purity of Hooker's style. Bishop Warburton, in his book on the Alliance between the Church and the State, often quotes him, and calls him 'the excellent, the admirable, the best good man of our order.'"-Dr. Parr.
"This work is superior to all praise for profound learning, compass of information, and accurate fidelity. His Preface, addressed to them that seek (as they term it) the Reformation of the Laws and Orders Ecclesiastical in the Church of England; and his Seventh Book, describing the Constitution and Maintenance of the Primitive Church; and vindicating the Discipline of the Church of England; for close, temperate, masterly, and exhaustive reasoning, are unrivalled, and well deserve to be reprinted separately."-Dr. W. Hales. "THERE IS NO LEARNING THIS MAN HATH NOT SEARCHED INTO. HIS BOOKS WILL GET REVERENCE BY AGE, FOR THERE IS IN THEM SUCH SEEDS OF ETERNITY THAT THEY WILL CONTINUE TILL THE LAST FIRE SHALL
DEVOUR ALL LEARNING."-POPE CLEMENT VIII.
