The Whole Works of the Most Rev. James Ussher, Vol. 5


Hodges, Smith and Co. 1864

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Volume 5 of The Whole Works of James Ussher (18 vols.) contains the first half of Ussher’s critical and detailed history on the origins of Christianity in Ireland and Britain. Written at the request of King James I, Britannicarum Ecclesiarum Antiquitates is a remarkable demonstration of Ussher’s ability to synchronize a plethora of sources into a careful and coherent book. A large section of the work focuses on the historical fight against Pelagianism in Britain, mirroring the rise of Arminianism in Ussher’s day, which he disagreed with.
