ASTICAL HISTORY, from the First to

E.S. FOULKES, M.A., Fellow and Tutor of

The main plan of the work has been bortowed from Spanheim, a leamed, though certainly not unbiassed, writer of the seventeenth century : the matter compiled from spoudanus 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 controversy, without examining their authorities. The one object that I have had before me has been to condense facts, without either garbling or ornitting any that should be noticed in a work like the present, and to give a fair and impartial view of the whole state of the case. Proface.

THE CALENDAR OF THE

" The revelations made by such writers as Mr. Meyrick in Spain and Mr. Gladstone in Italy, have at least vindicated for the Church of England a providential and morally detined position, mission, and purpose in the Catholic Church."- Morning Chronicle.

" Two valuable works ... to the truthful. ness of which we are glad to add our own testimony: one, and the most important, is Mr. Meyrick's Practical Working of the Church of Spain.' This is the experience - and it is the experience of every Spanish traveller-of a thoughtful person, as to the lamentable results of unchecked Romanism. Here is the solid substantial fact. Spain is divided between ultra-infidelity and what is so closely akin to actual idolatry, that it can only be controversially, not practically, distinguished from it: and over all hangs a Jurid clond of systematic immorality, simply frightful to contemplate. We can offer a direct, and even personal, testimony to all that Mr. Meyrick has to say." Christian Remembrancer.

* 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 most excellent gift of faith, so especially precious to Church historians, which implies s love for the Catholic cause, a reverence for its saintly champions, an abhorrence of the misdeeds which have defiled it, and a confidence that its truth is great, and will preTail,

" And among other qualifications which may justly be attributed to the author of the work before us, this last and highest is particularly

observable. He writes in a spirit of manly faith, and is not afraid of facing the horrors and uncertainties, which, to use his own words, are to be found in Church history." Fruire the Scottish Ecclesiastical Journal, Jay, 3852. JO UN 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 character. 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 kives 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 Saint, or
why Churches in a given locality are named
after this or that Saint." - Preface.

" The latter part of the book, on the early
Christian and mediavalgyinbols, and on eccle-
siastical emblemy, is of great historical and
architectural value. A copious Index of em-
blems is added, as well as a general Iudex to
the voluine with its numerous illustrations,
The work is an important contribution to

“This honest exposition of the practical working of Romanism in Spain, of its everyday effrets, not its canons and theories, deserves the careful study of all, who, unable to test the question abroad, are dazzled by the distant mirage with which the Vatican mocks many a yearning soul that thirsts after water-brooks pure and full."- Literary Gazette.
