The Church of England Cleared from the Charge of Schism, by the Decrees of the Seven Ecumenical Councils and the Tradition of the Fathers

  • Publication Date: 1871
  • Pages: 333

There is no single book in English on the Catholic side which contains the Scriptural argument about St. Peter and the Papacy so clearly or so conclusively put. It embodies all the learned and elaborate argument of Passaglia, from whose work it is derived, but the matter is condensed and arranged by the hand of a master, and thus the book is anything but a mere translation.
