Several papers; some of them given forth by George Fox; others by Jame [sic] Nayler, minister of the eternal word of God, raised up after the long night of apostacy to direct the world, to wait for the revelation of Jesus Christ, and to turn their minds to the true light, that they may be reconciled to God; of the world is not worthy, and therefore doth hate, persecute, and whom inprison them, under the name of Quakers. Gathered together and published by A.P. that the truth may be spread abroad, and deceit be discovered. Wherein the plain, honest, and sober conversation of the saints in fear and trembling, is justified, against the idle bablings of formal professors (the wicked fashions and heathenish customs of this nation) and of all sorts of persons, under pretence of civility. Also the priests of England, with their imaginary doctrines and worships discovered to be the grand enemies of Jesus Christ; and the true worship of God in spirit and truth made manifest. Also the occasion of divers scandals concerning the scriptures, baptism, Lords Supper, resurrection, magistracy and ministry, cast upon them by the priests, removed. With a word to the people of England, who in several forms have long flattered themselves with their ministry,; churches, and ordinances; but upon tryall, are found to be the synagogues of Satan, persecutors of the truth, and enemies of the gospel. And a few queries propounded to Tho. Ledgard of Newcastle, or any of those he ranks with himself, under the notion of Anti-Quakers.

Speculum ecclesiasticum, or, An ecclesiastical prospective-glass. Wherein may be clearly seen the doctrine of the primitive church for the first 500 years after our Saviour; especially as to the chiefest points in debate between Protestants and Roman Catholicks, viz. The visible and continued succession of the church: that the pope or bishop of Rome is the true successor of St. Peter, and supream head of the universal church: the churches infallibility: and its unity: and also the real presence of the body and blood of Christ in the blessed sacrament: auricular confession and absolution: invocation and prayer to saints: purgatory and prayer for the dead. And lastly, that apostolical tradition is the true rule of faith. All which is plainly prov'd, both by Holy Scripture, and the undenyable testimony of primitive fathers, in the first 500 years. During which time, the church is by the consent of the chiefest leading Protestants acknowledg'd to be in its purity, ...
