YMPATHIES of the CONTI

REFORMATION. By JOHN BAPTIST VON HIRSCHER, D.D., Dean of the Metropolitan Church of Freiburg, Breisgau, and Professor of Theology in the Roman Catholic University of that City. Translated and edited with Notes and Introduction by the Rev. ARTHUR CLEVELAND COXE, M.A., Rector of St. John's Church, Hartford, Cone necticut, U.S.

"The following work will be found a noble apology, for the position assumed by the Church of England in the sixteenth century, and for the practical reforms she then introduced into her theology and worship. If the author is right, then the changes he so eloquently urges upon the present attention of his brethren ought to have been made three hundred years ago; and the obstinate refusal of the Council of Trent to make such reforms in conformity with Scripture and Antiquity, throws the whole burthen of the sin of schism upon Rome, and not upon our Reformers. The value of such admissions must, of course, depend in a great measure upon the learning, the character, the position, and the influence of the author from whom they proceed. The writer believes, that questions as to these particulars can be most satisfactorily answered." - Introduction by Arthur Clercland Core. JOHN HENRY PARKER, Oxford ; and

ANGLICAN CHURCH ; illustrated with Brief Accounts of the Saints who have Churches dedicated in their Names, or whose Images are most frequently met with in England; also the Early Christian and Mediaval Symbols, and an Index of Emblems.

"It is perhaps hardly necessary to observe, that this work is of an Archaeological, and not a Theological churacter. The Editor has not considered it his business to examine into the truth or falsehood of the legends of which he narrates the substance ; he gives them merely as legends, and, in general, so much of them only as is necessary to explain why particular emblems were used with a particular Suint, or why Churches in a given locality are nared after this or that Suint." - Preface.

"The latter part of the book, on the early Christian and mediaval symbols, and on ecclesiastical emblems, is of great historical and architectural value. A copious Index of emblems is added, as well as a general Index to the volume with its numerous illustrations. The work is an important contribution to English Archaeology, especially in the department of ecclesiastical iconography."-Literary Gazette. JOIIN HENRY PARKER, Oxford ; and

TIC ARCHITECTURE in ENGLAND, from the Conquest to the end of the Thirteenth Century with numerous Illustrations of Existing Remains from Original Drawings. By T. HUDSON TURNER.

"What Horace Walpole attempted, and what Sir Charles Lock Eastlake bas done for oilpainting - elucidated its history and traced its progress in England by means of the records of expenses and mandates of the successive Sovereigns of the realm - Mr. Hudson Turner has now achieved for Domestic Architecture in this country during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries." - Architect.

"The writer of the present volume ranks among the most intelligent of the craft, and a careful perusal of its contents will convince the reader of the enormous amount of labour bestowed on its minutest details, as well as the discriminating judgment presiding over the general arrangement." - Morning Chronicle.

"The book of which the title is given above is one of the very few attempts that have been made in this country to treat this interesting subject in anything more than a superficial manner.

"Mr. Turner exhibits much learning and research, and he has consequently laid before the reader much interesting information. It is a book that was wanted, and that affords us some relief from the mass of works on Ecclesiastical Architecture with which of late years we have been deluged.

The work is well illustrated throughout with food-engravings of the more interesting remains, and will prove a valuable addition to the antiquary's library." - Literary Garette.

"It is as a text-book on the social comforts and condition of the Squires and Gentry of England during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, that the leading value of Mr. Turper's prezent publication will be found to consist.

Pored from Spanheim, a learned, though cer-
tainly not unbiassed, writer of the seventeenth

and Spanheim, Mosheim and Fleury, Gieseler
and Dollinger, and others, who have been used
too often to be specified, unless when reference
to them appeared desirable for the benefit of
the reader. Yet I believe I have never once
trusted to them on a point involving contro-
versy, without examining their authorities.
The one object that I have had before me has
been to condense facts, without either garbling
a quitting any that should be noticed in a
Fork like the present, and to give a fair and
impartial view of the whole state of the case.--
Preface
An epitomist of Church History has a task
of no ordinary greatness. ... He must combine
the rich faculties of condensation and analysis,
of judgment in the selection of materials, and
calmness in the expression of opinions, with
that moat excellent gift of faith, so especially
precious to Church historians, which implies
a love for the Catholie cause, a reverence for
ita suntly champions, an abhorrence of the
misdeeds which have depled it, and a confi-
dence that is truth is great, and will pre-
"And among other qualifications which may
fostly be attributed to the anthor of the work
before us, this last and highest is particularly
observable. Be writes in a spirit of manly
