Description

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. 1736 edition. Excerpt: ...extremely improbable. And therefore, we may much better rely upon Beatus Rhenanus, Pameliusy and Rigaltius, who reckon his Bounty to the joint Reign of Severus and Antoninus his eldest Son j which brings it within Mr. Du Pin's Computation (z): And thus two of our Author's Evidences shrink under the Test.

He argues from Scripture and Tradition s but fays nothing of the Paraclet in Montanus, Priscilla, and Maximilla, He pleads for no supplemental Revelation, nor re proaches the Catholicks with the Name of PJychici, or Sensual: Whereas in his Books de Monogamia, de Jejuniis, de Pudicitia, &c. there are plain Marks of Heterodoxy, and Desertion from the Church.
