The divine right of church-government and excommunication
The divine right of church-government and excommunication: or A peaceable dispute for the perfection of the holy Scripture in point of ceremonies and church-government; in which the removal of the Service-book is justifi’d, the six books of Tho: Erastus against excommunication are briefly examin’d; with a vindication of that eminent divine Theod: Beza against the aspersions of Erastus, the arguments of Mr. William Pryn, Rich: Hooker, Dr. Morton, Dr. Jackson, Dr. John Forbes, and the doctors of Aberdeen; touching will-worship, ceremonies, imagery, idolatry, things indifferent, an ambulatory government; the due and just power of the magistrate in matters of religion, and the arguments of Mr. Pryn, in so far as they side with Erastus, are modestly discussed. To which is added, a brief tractate of scandal; with an answer to the new doctrine of the doctors of Aberdeen, touching scandal.
