Excerpt from The English Church in the Seventeenth Century Thus, when Elizabeth required the clergy to wear the surplice,2 which could not reasonably be considered as symbolical of any corrupt doctrine, the Puritans persistently refused to conform. They objected also to the reverent attitude of kneeling at Communion, to the sign of the cross in baptism, and the ring in marriage. They had, however, no quarrel with the doctrinal views of the Reformers, and although some of them favoured a Presbyterian rather than an Episcopal form of Church government, the vast majority were content to serve under the latter.
