Warden Richard Mocket's "Doctrina et Politia Ecclesiae Anglicanae" is a "Summa" of Anglican doctrine and organisation compiled by a chaplain of Abbot, Archbishop of Canterbury. It includes (anonymously) Jewel's "Apologia" for the Church of England, Nowell's "Catechism," the thirty-nine Articles (in a controversial Latin version), Mocket's own - unique - Latin translation of the Jacobean "Book of Common Prayer," a brief summary of the official Anglican "Homilies" and Mocket's treatise "Disciplina et Politia Ecclesia Anglicanae" with the variants of his little-known manuscript and the issues of 1616 and 1617 of the printed edition. The whole volume is given in facsimile, the text being that of 1617 (edited). James I condemned the edition to be burnt (1617). It is therefore little known. The introduction (by M.A.Screech) discusses why so important a book was burnt, with the result that it - as well as this edition of Jewel's "Apologia" and Nowell's "Catechism" are all but unknown.
