TO THE REVEREND

WILLIAM SEWELL, D.D.,

FELLOW OF EXETER COLLEGE: LATE PROFESSOR OF MORAL PHILOSOPHY
IN THE UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD; AND LATE WARDEN
OF ST. PETER’S COLLEGE, RADLEY.


My Dear Friend,

Let me have the satisfaction of inscribing this volume to yourself. I know of no one who has more faithfully devoted himself to the sacred cause of Christian Education no one to whom those blessed Truths are more precious, which of late have been so unscrupulously assailed, and which the ensuing pages are humbly designed to uphold in their integrity.

Affectionately yours,

JOHN W. BURGON.

ΔΕΙ   ΓΑΡ   ΚΑΙ   ἉΙΡΕΣΕΙΣ   ἘΝ   ὙΜΙΝ ΕΙΜΑΙ, ἹΝΑ ΟΙ   ΔΟΚΙΜΟΙ
ΦΑΝΕΡΟΙ   ΓΕΝΩΝΤΑΙ   ἘΝ   ὙΜΙΝ.

Ac si diceret: Ob hoc haerescôn non statim divinitus eradicantur auctores, ut probati manifesti fiant; id est, ut unusquisque quam tenax, et fidelis, et fixus Catholicae fidei sit amator, appareat. Et revera cum quaeque novitas ebullit, statim cernitur frumentorum gravitas, et levitas pelearum: tunc sine magno molimine excutitur ab arcâ, quod nullo pondere intra aream tenebetur.Vincentius Lirinensis, Adversus Haereses, § 20.
