Description


Excerpt from History of the Scottish Episcopal Church: From the Revolution to the Present Time

It may probably appear to some readers, who are well informed in the History of the Scottish Episcopal Church, that sundry matters are omitted of which they expected to find details. It is hoped that these are few, and comparatively unimportant, and can little affect the general scope of the narrative. Some transactions have been purposely excluded, because it appeared, after carefiil deliberation, that they never could have led to beneficial or practical results. Such, for example, was the correspondence with a branch of the orthodox Greek Church, any statement of which is from its very nature altogether superfluous, and would only have placed in the hands of the sectarian enemies of the Scottish Episcopal Church an additional weapon for calumny and misrepresentation. Many of the prosecutions of the clergy and other events are also so similar, that a few cases are quite sufficient to explain the whole, a minute investigation of which would have made the volume tedious and too large. The successions in the Episcopate are carefully nar rated as Of the utmost importance, for while the ordinations of Deacons and Presbyters are merely local and personal, the Church at large has a vital interest in the consecration Of every Bishop. The appendix could have been extended, but it was considered in the meanwhile unnecessary. The canons are inserted, by per mission, at the request of several distinguished individuals.
