Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1821 Excerpt: ...chapels none should celebrate the holy communion but priests belonging unto greater churches.

Yea, "baptism by any man, in the case of necessity," was the voice a of the whole world heretofore. Neither is Tertullian,d Epiphanius, Augustine,0or any other of the ancients, against it. The boldness of such, as, pretending T. C. lib. i. p. 145. To allow of women's baptizing, is not only contrary to the learned writers now, but also contrary to all learned antiquity, and contrary to the practice of the chnrch, whilst there was any tolerable estate. b Tertul. de Virgin,...
