The Writings of Robert Harrison and Robert Browne

Author: Albert Peel Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 09/07/2013

Robert Harrison and Robert Browne were the initiators of the principles of English Separatism and Congregationalism. Unlike the Presbytero-Puritans, these nonconformists sought to establish local churches that were independent of the state. Although they encountered fierce opposition from the clergy, state officials and Anglican bishops, they persisted in their practices. As a result, the ideas of these two men profoundly influenced the Puritan movement both of England and America. In this volume, scarce and little known works, as well as new material derived from manuscripts and tracts are collected into one volume.

Tracts Ascribed to Richard Bancroft Edited from a Manuscript in the Library of St John's College, Cambridge

Author: Albert Peel Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 09/06/2011

In the library of St John's College, Cambridge is a manuscript thus catalogued by M. R. James: 'Certain Slanderous Speeches against the present Estate of the Church of England, published to the people by the Precisians, with the particular causes that have so stirred them, and blasphemous and seditious positions held by them, with refutations of the same, and an Index of Browne's heresies with their refutation.' The manuscript is a valuable conspectus of the state of the controversy between Presbyterian and Episcopalian. This is Dr Peel's 1953 transcription of the manuscript. In an introductory essay he argues that the author is Richard Bancroft, Bishop of London (1597-1604) and Archbishop of Canterbury (1604-10), who played a prominent part in the history of the Church of England at a critical period, and whom the Presbyterian Andrew Melville described as 'the capital enemy of all the Reformed Churches in Europe'.

In 1593, in response to strict censorship in England, English Puritans in Scotland printed a volume of letters, petitions and arguments titled Parte of a Register, which was smuggled into England. Manuscripts for a second book were collected but never published, and were later acquired by Roger Morrice (1628-1702), the Puritan diarist. They are now housed at Dr Williams's Library in London. This is a two-volume study of the 257 documents, which date from 1570 to 1590. They include Puritan letters, petitions, arguments and records of persecution by ecclesiastical authorities, and together constitute valuable evidence of the aims and concerns of the early Puritan movement. Compiled by the ecclesiastical historian Albert Peel (1886-1949) and first published in 1915, this catalogue itemises the contents of the collection. Volume 2 contains the second part of the list, and indexes of manuscripts, authors, people, places and subjects.
