For JULY, 1835.

Art. I.-1. Memoirs of the Council of Trent; principally derived

from Manuscript and unpublished Records, namely, Histories, Diaries, Letters, and other Documents of the leading Actors in that Assembly. With Plates. By the Rev. Joseph Mendham,

M.A. 8vo. pp. xxxii. 380. Price 14s. London, 1834. 2. Remarks on the erroneous Opinions entertained respecting the Ca

tholic Religion. A New Edition. By Henry Howard, Esq. 8vo.

pp. 16. London, (gratis,) 1829. THI 'HIS volume, the production of a learned Protestant clergy

man, exhibits the startling novelty of a Dedication to the Pope; but it is one which will not procure for the Author the favour of his Holiness, or protect his book against being placed in the Judex Expurgatoricis of the Court of Rome. We shall gratify the curiosity of our readers by transcribing it.

* To Gregory XVI., Sovereign and Pontiff of Rome, to whom it is competent to attempt the only means, which, if adopted, would be effectual, of exonerating his Church from the continued charge of superstition and idolatry, of perfidy, cruelty, and assumed dominion over secular sovereigns, by calling a council, for the express purpose of condemning and abolishing every enormity which classes itself under those offensive heads; the present Memoirs of a Council, to which,

with others, they are principally indebted for their origin or establish12 ment, are not irreverently addressed by one of the best wishers to his temporal and eternal welfare, The AUTHOR.' If Mr. Mendham were not much too grave a person

be suspected of intending a joke, we should have supposed that this page of his work was meant in burlesque. The Christian world has seen enough of councils, to know that nothing good is likely



ever to proceed from them; and as to the present reigning supreme Pontiff, his infallibility would be exerted for no other purpose than the upholding of every enormity of the Papal system. Mr. Mendham has given, in his Appendix, a copy of the original edition of the Encyclical Letter of Gregory XVI., obtained, not without difficulty, from Rome; and the contents, he remarks, ' will demonstrate in what form and degree the doctrine defined

and established by the last (and likely ever to be the last) Ge• neral Council of the Roman Church, is at this day professed, published, and inculcated by the Supreme Head and Organ of • its Faith ; and how far the indulgent, but not eminently sa

gacious opinion is well founded, that the Faith of Romanists is changed or improved ; an opinion against which not only the whole Papal hierarchy and clergy, but Francis Plowden, and Charles Butler, Esqrs., reclaim. In this Pontifical Manifesto, of which we regret that an English Translation is not given, the worthy successor of the Piuses, and Pauls, and Leos of the darkest ages, thus raves against the sacred rights of liberty of conscience.

Atque ex hoc putidissimo INDIFFERENTISNI fonte absurda illa fluit ac erronea sententia, seu potius deliramentum, asserendam esse ac vindicandam cuilibet LIBERTATEM CONSCIENTIÆ. Cui quidem pestilentissimo errori viam sternit plena illa, atque immoderata libertas opinionum, quæ in sacræ, et civilis rei labem late grassatur, dictitantibus per summam impudentiam nonnullis, aliquid ex ea commodi in Religionem ebat Augustinus. quæ pejor mors animæ, quam libertas erroris ? ingura

.'* Again, as to the liberty of the press.

Huc spectat deterrima illa, ac numquam satis exsecranda et detestabilis libertas artis librariæ ad scripta qualibet edenda in vulgus, quam tanto convicio audent nonnulli efflagitare ac promovere. Perhorrescimus, Venerabiles Fratres, intuentes, quibus monstris doctrinarum, seu potius quibus errorum portentis obruamur, quæ longe ac late ubique disseminantur ingenti librorum multitudine, libellisque, et scriptis mole quidem eriguis, malitia tamen permagnis, e quibus maledictionem egressam illacrymamur super faciem terræ. Sunt tamen, prok dolor ! qui eo impudentiæ abripiantur, ut asserant pugnaciter, hanc

* • From this polluted fountain of “ Indifference," flows that absurd and erroneous doctrine, or rather raving, in favour and in defence of “ liberty of conscience ;" for which most pestilential error, the course is opened by that entire and wild liberty of opinion, which is everywhere attempting the overthrow of religious and civil institutions ; and which the unblushing impudence of some has held forth as an advantage to religion. “ But what,” exclaimed St. Augustine, “what worse death to the soul than freedom in error ?"
