Excerpt from A Selection From the Writings of the Reformers and Early Protestant Divines of the Church of England
In rare and admirable qualities of our ancestors do deserve a thankful acknowledgment of posterity, then most deservedly ought the singular natural endow ments and supernatural graces of this reverend prelate to live and ﬂourish in perpetual memory; by whom a an especial means the sincere religion we now pro fess received much vigour and strength after her long suppression in the time of superstition. For sithong it hath been the singular felicity of the church of England, above some others, that in it this sacred order of bishops hath brought forth some famous martyrs, many most worthy doctors and pastors, as instruments to purge and refine the gold of the sanc tuary, yet such a jewel in all respects, such nature with such grace, so heafienly learning in so heavenly alife, such eminent gifts in such eminent place, so fruitfully distilling their wholesome and sweetest luﬂua ence to the refreshing and cherishing of the church of God, have not been frequently found in these later times.
