‘Means for the Establishing of a Learned Ministry’

  • H. C. Porter
Part of the History in Depth book series (HD)


The Church of England having the benefit of two famous universities, and many good schools of cathedral churches, and suchlike means, with this discipline it hath, in twenty-eight years hath not been otherwise provided for than that for 10,000 parishes there should be but 2,000 preachers. The churches of reformed discipline, wanting all these means, and having them all against them, yet by means of Discipline furnish a great number of congregations. Amend therefore that wherein we are wanting of them, and the Church shall be served.
