The Reformers of the Anglican Church, and Mr. Macaulay's History of England (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Reformers of the Anglican Church, and Mr. Macaulay's History of England God raised up Apostles and prophets, and gave them power extra ordinary, as the gift of tongues, the gift of healing, the gift of government, &c., in place whereof, He hath given now bishops, archbishops, &c. Bishop Jewel was also one of the disputants on the Protestant side at a disputation in 1559, between the Papists and Protestants at Westminster, when the latter maintained against the former, who were anxious to lower the episcopal in favour of the papal dignity, that the Apostles' authority is derived upon after ages, and conveyed to the bishops, their successors. The eminent names of Scory, Grindal, Cox, Aylmer, Guest, Jewel, and Horn, may be mentioned as the Protestant disputants who maintained the above proposition. (see Note at the end.)
