THE HEADS OF THE CHAPTERS OF THIS DISSERTATION.
A DISSERTATION Concerning the AUTHORITY OF Patriarchs and Metropolitans.
CHAP. I. That the British Church was instituted either by St. Peter or his Successors.
CHAP. II. That the Bishop of Rome is Patriarch of the West, and therein even of England: and that this follows, from the British Church's having receiv'd her Insti∣tution either from him or from his Priests, as is prov'd by the Testimony of Innocent.
CHAP. III. Although the British Church had not receiv'd its Insti∣tution from the Roman, yet it is shew'd, from the Example of the Illyrican Church, that by ancient Custom time out of mind, it might be subject to it, and moreover that it ought to be so.
CHAP. IV. Concerning the Greater Dioceses attributed to Pope Sylvester by the Council of Arles.
CHAP. V. Whether the Nicene Canons establish the Metropoli∣tan Dignity as Supream, and what is decreed in the Sixth of these Canons, concerning the Patriar∣chal Authority.
CHAP. VI. That the British Church acknowledged an Authority Superior to that of a Metropolitan, from the time that the Christian Religion was first planted there, till such time as it was again restored by Augustine the Monk, under Gregory the Great.
AN EXHORTATION TO THE MINISTERS OF THE English Church.
