Essays and Addresses: Chiefly on Church Subjects


Strahan & Co. 1869

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Published in 1869, these works are reactionary essays towards current events and doctrines of the Church of England during Alford’s life. Expounding on his belief that we are made of three parts—body, soul, and spirit—he contradicts the commonly held belief of that day that humans are body and soul only. Also addressed in this work is Alford’s dislike of the Act of Uniformity of 1662, which he calls a “disastrous blunder.” This leads him to expound upon his distress over the growing schism of the Church of England.
