'A Discourse Concerning Bonds of Resignation of Benefices' with a seperate pagination and title page, but a continuous register to 'Ecclesiastical Cases'.
Two Anglican works discussing the religion and politics of the church at the end of the seventeenth century.
This period of Anglican history was still rife with controversy, following Henry VIII's separation from the Roman Catholic Church just over one hundred years earlier.
'A Discourse Concerning Bonds of Resignation of Benefices' concerns Stillingfleet's belief that the practice of giving a bond to resign a post at a later request was wrong.
Written by Edward Stillingfleet, who was a theologian and scholar, and was the Bishop of Worcester. When he died, Stillingfleet left a library of around ten-thousand books.
