Стр. 343 - Green-yard pulpit, and the servicebooks and singing-books that could be had, were carried to the fire in the public market-place ; a lewd wretch walking before the train, in his cope trailing in the dirt, with a service-book in his hand, imitating in an impious scorn the tune, and usurping the words of the litany used formerly in the church.
Стр. 342 - Lord, what work was here ! what clattering of glasses ! what beating down of walls ! what tearing up of monuments ! what pulling down of seats ! what wresting out of irons and brass from the windows and graves ! what defacing of arms ! what demolishing of curious stone-work...
Стр. 257 - England ; many of them infamous in their lives and conversations; and most of them of very mean parts in learning, if not of scandalous ignorance ; and of no other reputation, than of malice to the church of England...
Стр. 12 - England was generally thought secure, with the advantages of its own climate ; the court in great plenty, or rather (which is the discredit of plenty) excess, and luxury ; the country rich, and, which is more, fully enjoying the pleasure of its own wealth, and so the easier corrupted with the pride and wantonness of it; the church flourishing with learned and extraordinary men, and...

Стр. 263 - ... they might be religious first, and then just and merciful; that they might sell their consciences, and yet have something left that was worth keeping; that they might be sure they were elected, though their lives were visibly scandalous ; that to be cunning was to be wise ; that to be rich was to be happy, though their wealth was got without justice or mercy ; that to be busy in things they understood not, was no sin.
Стр. 13 - ... the country full of pride, mutiny, and discontent; every man more troubled and perplexed at that they called the violation of one law, than delighted or pleased with the observation of all the rest of the charter: never imputing the increase of their receipts, revenue, and plenty, to the wisdom, virtue, and merit of the crown, but objecting every small imposition to the exorbitancy and tyranny of the government...
Стр. 14 - Apostacy in the whole Nation from their Religion and Allegiance, could, in so short a Time, have produced such a total and prodigious Alteration, and Confusion over the whole Kingdom; And, that the Memory of those, who, out of Duty and Conscience, have opposed that Torrent, which did overwhelm them, may not lose the recompense due to their Virtue, but, having undergone the injuries and reproaches of This, may find a vindication in a better...
