Preface.

The object of the following Work is to state the facts connected with the History of our Church after the Reformation-period in sufficient detail to interest, and with fairness and impartiality. It is believed that the want of such a work is very generally acknowledged. Neither among the older nor more modern writers on Church History bave we exactly such a book as is above intimated. It is not pretended in this volume to exhibit much that is new. The Work is compiled from the ordinary printed sources. It will be found, however, here and there illustrated from MSS., and recent publications of MSS., such as those of the Camden Society. Some attempt has been made to review and present the substance of the principal works on Divinity of the period.
