THE PREFACE TO AL INDIFFERENT AND EQVALL READERS.
TO THE RIGHT HONORABLE Court of parlament: especially such as therein bee persecutors of Catholicks: and to all other such persecutors.
Howe Catholike Religion was vniustlye sup∣pressed by Queene Elizabeth, not one Spi∣rituall person hauing voyce in Parlamente consenting: no disputation or ordinarie defence thereof permitted to the Catholike Bishoppes and Cleargie: and their duetifull loyaltie not∣withstanding their pietie honoured by their pro∣testant enemies.
The vertue, learning, and dutiful loyaltie of the Se∣minarie or secular (as some name them) Priestes which came after into England, the vniust perse∣cution of them, and catholikes here, and their most christian and religious offers and behauiour.
The Parlaments vniust proceeding against Priestes and Catholiks, and persecution without all cause by their owne iudgements.
Howe the Priestes and Catholikes of England, ne∣uer deserued the least persecution or affliction, vnder our Soueraigne King Iames, but rather fauour, honour, and reuerence.
Whether any reformatiō may be found in the preten∣ded reformers of religion for Catholikes to fol∣low. And first of King Henry the 8. with whome neither Catholikes nor Protestants now ioyne in Religion.
That English catholikes cannot be perswaded vnto, but much disswaded from Protestant Religion, by the Protestant proceedings in the time of King Edward the 6.
THAT THE PROCEEDINGS OF Q. Elizabeth ar noe warrant for protestants to per∣secute Catholicks, nor noe true conuiction, but rather a confirmation of the Romane Catholicke Religion: by the writings of English protestants themselues.
APPROBATIO.
