Excerpt from An Ecclesiastical History of Great Britain, Vol. 4 of 9: Chiefly of England, From the First Planting of Christianity, to the End of the Reign of King Charles the Second; With a Brief Account of the Affairs of Religion in Ireland This second volume acquaints the reader with no small revolution in the belief and worship, in the revenues and jurisdiction of the Church. This matter, not carried at first without opposition, and descending in the consequences upon after ages, must of course be differently received. I am sensible, a subject of so nice and weighty an importance, cannot be undertaken without standing some hazard. When men's opinions are contested, when they are not entertained in their humour, nor caressed in their imagined interest, they are apt to grow disconcerted, and run out into censure. But a Church historian especially, ought to be proof against attacks of this kind. His business is neither to take too much freedom with the dead, nor to be overawed by the living. Caution in excess, affectation of popularity, and mercenary regards, are dangerous qualities: he that seeks to please men, upon these motives, cannot be the servant of Christ. On the other hand, where truth and public service will give leave, gentle usage, and smooth report, are clearly to be preferred. A prosecuting manner, when unseasonably indulged, is an argument of prejudice, and ill nature; it tends only to give disgust, and provoke to reprisals.
