THE Healing Attempt.
The Introduction.
CHAP. I. The Sense of our First Reformers in Henry the Eighth's Days.
CHAP. II. The Judgment of the Reformers in Edward the Sixth's Days the same 'twas in Henry the Eighth's, holding no Difference by Divine Law between a Bishop and Presbyter.
CHAP. III. Aley Bishop of Exeter, Pilkington Bishop of Durham, Jewel Bishop of Salisbury, Whitgift Archbishop of Canterbury, of the same Opinion with Tindall, Lam∣bert, Barnes, and the Reformers in King Edward's Time.
CHAP. IV. Dr. Willet's Sentiments much the same with the foremen∣tion'd Bishops, The Difference between a Bishop and Presbyter as of Divine Right declur'd to be Popish, and oppos'd as such. The special Consecration of Bishops was Ordained, not by a Divine Law, but by the Church, for the Dignity of their Calling. Saravia for no other Difference between a Presbyter and Bishop but in Degree. Bancroft for a Priority in degree only, holding with Dr. Robinson, Dr. Reynolds, and Dr. Fulk, whose Au∣thorities he insists on to Confirm his Opinion about a Gra∣dual Difference between Bishop and Presbyter.
CHAP. V. The Learned Hooker, and Bishop Bilson's Opinion impar∣tially stated, differing but little from Saravia and Bancroft.
