“…there never was a body of divines who labored more conscientiously, carefully, and faithfully, produced more important documents, or a richer theological literature, than that remarkably learned, able, and pious body…”

Charles A. Briggs

“The divines there congregated were men of eminent learning, godliness, ministerial abilities, and fidelity… as far as I am able to judge… the Christian world, since the days of the apostles, had never a synod of more excellent divines…”

Richard Baxter

About this Collection

This is intended to be a comprehensive collection of all of the writings of the Westminster divines in English, and it was the largest such collection on the net when it was last updated in Dec. of 2020.

124 of the 160 members and commissioners (77.5%) that are known to have at some point attended the Westminster Assembly over its ten year plus span (1643-1653+), have writings freely available on the internet.  Out of the 1,260 total writings of divines that are referenced on this page, 1,118 of them (88.7%) are free available online.

Only one copy of each work has been selected, though sometimes multiple copies exist. Preference has been given to readability over date, edition, etc. For additional editions or copies of the works below, check PRDL and EEBO.  Where a modern reprint is available for a specific writing below, a Buy link will open a page where it can be purchased.

The number after the name of the divine is how many works they produced (which we know of), which are all online.  If a name has two numbers after it, separated by a comma, the first number is how many of their works are online; the second number is how many of their works are referenced, but are not online.

Persons who were invited to the Assembly, but did not actually attend, are not included here (with a few exceptions, for the time being, who have an * after their name).

This page can be searched.  Most browsers allow one to search any webpage by pressing the ‘control’ key and the letter ‘f’ together, which will open up a search-box.  Search for keywords, authors or titles.

The substance of this webpage was completed before the Westminster Assembly Project had anything akin to it available.

An Historical Vindication of the Government of the Church of Scotland from the Manifold Base Calumnies which the Most Malignant of the Prelates did Invent of Old, & Now Lately have been Published with Great Industry in Two Pamphlets at London.

Wherein is Clearly & Shortly Demonstrated, not only that the Liturgy is taken for the most part word by word out of these antichristian writs; but also that not one of the most abominable passages of the mass can in reason be refused by any who cordially embrace the liturgy as now it stands, and is commented by the prime of our clergy.

On Political Theory

The Lawfulness of Obeying the Present Government & Acting Under it with Some Other Additions to a Former Edition, by One that loves All Presbyterian Lovers of Truth & Peace & is of Their Communion  (London, 1649)

“His [Antony Ascham’s] first published work was A Discourse, wherein is Examined what is Particularly Lawful during the Confusions & Revolutions of Government: or, How far a Man may Conform to the Powers & Commands of Those who Hold Kingdoms Divided by Wars…  This appeared in 1648, probably in July at the height of the political uncertainty engendered by the second Civil War.  The previous month the Army [of the English Parliament] had shown that it wielded both political and military power and Ascham’s Discourse was widely seen as a defense of the Army as the conquering power, and as a plea for ‘the rank of the people’ to adopt a position of political quiescence.

Parliament’s ultimate victory [over King Charles I] and the establishment of the Commonwealth [of Cromwell] posed a problem for those who felt unable to accept the legality of the new government but were now being required to give it their allegiance, and also for those who regarded their oath of allegiance to King Charles I…  as a solemn oath to God that could not be broken.  One argument, provided by a group of political theorists variously called the Engagers, or de facto theorists, was to argue that an individual could give their obedience to the de facto government in being simply because it was in power.

For many such a theory was deeply shocking since it emphasized power at the expense of authority, and subordinated allegiance to self-interest.  The debate was initiated by Francis Rous who published a brief pamphlet in April 1649 [The Lawfulness of Obeying the Present Government] in which he argued that allegiance could be given to the Commonwealth even though it were acknowledged to be an illegal power [there was no provision in England’s laws for anything but a monarchy].  It was a radical shift in the basis of the argument that was to be followed through by theorists engaged in the debate on de facto government.

In the debate that followed Ascham [(c. 1614–1650), a reformed, puritan, British academic, political theorist, Parliamentarian and diplomat] played a major part in developing a theory of political obligation to the de facto power…” – Wiki on Ascham

On a Body of Divinity

A Summary Platform of the Heads of a Body of Practical Divinity  1654, 12 pages, with a letter from Archbishop James Ussher recommending that such a body of practical divinity be written

John Dury (1596-1680) grew up with connections to the heads of state, and was advised by an eminent chaplain that to reconcile the divisions of the protestant churches would be the greatest work of peacemaking (Matt 5:9) that one could do.  Dury subsequently devoted his entire adult life’s work to this end, with indefatigable journeys, letter writing and conferencing among the leading church figures of the day.  The titles of his many writings also bear out this purpose. 

This particular work is the first part of a brief summary outline of practical scriptural living and ethics, intended as an ecumenical effort to unite churches abroad.  Previous to this work, a letter was written by William Gouge, Obadiah Sedgwick and others to James Ussher asking him to lead a joint project to write such a body of divinity.  Ussher was favorable to the project but it was interrupted by the English Civil War.  Other signers to this effort included: John Downame, George Walker, Adoniram Byfield, Sidrach Simpson, Richard Culverwell, George Hughes and Joseph Symonds.  Dury ended up writing the desired outline of practical divinity.  HT: Andrew Myers.

An Earnest Plea for a Gospel-Communion in the Way of Godliness, which is Sued for by the Protestant Churches of Germany, unto the Churches of Great Britain & Ireland: in a Letter Written by them to these, which was sent hither to that Effect, by the Hand of John Dury  (London, 1654)  89 pp.

This work also contains an appended letter by William Gouge, Obadiah Sedgwick and others to James Ussher asking him to lead a joint project to write a body of divinity.  Ussher was favorable to the project but it was interrupted by the English Civil War.  Other signers included: John Downame, George Walker, Adoniram Byfield, Sidrach Simpson, Richard Culverwell, George Hughes and Joseph Symonds.

The Gentle Lash, or, The Vindication of Dr. Featley, a Known Champion of the Protestant Religion, Also Seven Articles Exhibited Against Him, with his Answer Thereunto, Together with the Said Doctor, his Manifesto & Challenge  1644

The Gentle Lash is devoted to defending Featley from allegations which appeared in what were weekly, proto-newspapers, specifically from the charge of sitting in the Westminster Assembly in order to overturn episcopacy.

The Seven Articles, or charges against Featley, appear to charge Featley as culpable of certain broad Anglican practices which were deemed needing to be reformed (by more puritan advocates and authorities), and with resistance to such reform movements.

Hence the two tracts defend Featley from opposite poles.

“It seems to be obvious that the pamphlet war between the Presbyterians in England and New England Congregationalists reached the new levels of intensity in the mid-1640s, particularly, during the period of the Assembly.  In 1643, the collections of the early debates between the Old English Presbyterians and the New England were published in London. 

In the same year, Charles Herle, a Presbyterian who became a prolocutor of the Assembly in 1646, sparked a new round of controversy.  Rutherford, in the following year, joined in Herle’s crusade against Congregationalism with his famous work, The Due Right of Prebyteries (1644).  In reply to Herle, [Richard] Mather and William Tompson published, ‘A Modest & Brotherly Answer To Mr. Charles Herle’ (1644).  Also, refuting both Herle and Rutherford, Mather wrote another work, ‘A Reply to Mr. Rutherford’ (1647).”

Dispute About the Livings of Ejected Ministers’ Families

An Acquitance, or Discharge, from Dr. E.H., his Demand of a Fifth Part of the Rectory of Br. in Barks, Pleaded as in a Court of Equity & Conscience: 1. Part of an Apology for Him Against the Doctor’s Defamations of Him at Oxford & Elsewhere. 2. As a Preparative to Further Contestation with Him about other Differences Betwixt Them  (London, 1654)

Ley, a presbyterian, argues against the payment of a fifth part out of sequestered livings to be given for the maintenance of the outed ministers’ wives and children.  As this took place under Cromwell’s Protectorate, presumably the ministers put out by the puritanical parliament were delinquent, episcopal or sectarian.  The money, estate or benefice ‘sequestered’ seems not to have been theirs privately, but was provided by the Church and/or state, and hence had a public use (for the incoming minister, of which Ley was one). 

General Reasons, Grounded on Piety, Charity, Justice & Equity, Against the Default of a Fifth Part of the Ministers’ Maintenance who bear the Whole Burden of the Ministerial Function to Any Parish or People, whereto are added Particular Reasons upon the like Grounds Against the Payment of a Fifth Part to Dr. E.H. out of the Rectory of Br. in Berks, together with an answer to a letter of the said Dr. E.H.

Letters

The Bishop of Worcester’s Letter to a Friend for Vindication of Himself From Mr. [Richard] Baxter’s Calumny  (London, 1662)

Morley was the established bishop over the geographical area of which Baxter was in pastoring as an Independent.  Morley believed this to be illegitimate.  Previously Baxter had come to Morley seeking a license to preach in the area, which Morley said he would be willing to give on certain conditions (relating to not preaching ‘schismatic’ doctrine regarding civil and Church authorities).  Baxter broke these conditions and gatehred and pastor a congregation in Kidderminster anyway.

Baxter sought to defend himself in certain sermons printed in The Mischiefs of Self-Ignorance & the Benefits of Self-Acquaintance...  in Answer to the Accusations of Some & the Desires of Others  (1662).  The main issue that Baxter, and hence Morley address, is whether a law entailing nothing sinful in itself, and enjoined by an authority, is binding? and whether it may ever be disobeyed; and if it accidentally causes others to sin, was it was enjoined sinfully or not?  Morley block quotes Baxter at length at the beginning of his work (from the section, ‘To my Dearly Beloved…’, before the ‘Contents’ of Baxter’s work).

Baxter argues that disobedience to such a law may be right in some circumstances.  Morley does not take exception to this, but rather further qualifies the exact proposition in difference between them, and says, with documentation and witnesses, that this proposition (which Baxter does not address) had always been the explicit difference between them.  If Morley is true in what he relates (he seems to write with great integrity), then it does seem that Baxter had twisted the larger context of the issue, possibly to make himself look innocent, or perhaps Baxter had seriously misunderstood Morley in the controversy. 

The work is helpful in considering carefully the ethical issues relating to the lawfulness of authorities making laws, and when they might be disobeyed.  Morley (an episcopalian royalist) provides in the Postscript what he considers to be damning quotes from Baxter’s political theology, which are very helpful in considering the issues of political theology, and Baxter’s sentiments therein.

The Lawfulness of the [Erastian] Oath of Supremacy & Power of the King in Ecclesiastical Affairs, with Queen Elizabeth’s Admonition, Declaring the Sense & Interpretation of it, Confirmed by an Act of Parliament, in the 5th year of her Reign, together with a Vindication of Dissenters, Proving, that their Particular Congregations are Not Inconsistent with the King’s Supremacy in Ecclesiastical Affairs, with some account of the nature, constitution & power of the ecclesiastical courts, & in the ‘Epistle to the Reader’ is inserted King James’ Vindication & Explication of the Oath of Allegiance  (1662; London, 1683)

The Independents tended to have an Erastian streak in their theology, believing (contra presbyterians) that the civil magistrate had authority to judge matters in sacra, and enforce them civilly, by the recognition of their conscience about theology.  This appears to have derived from the Independent principle that all people could judge Scripture and theology of their own capacity by their own personal conscience. 

The presbyterians held that while the conscience ought to be informed, and one ought not to go against it, yet only certain matters in Scripture were easy to understand, and the expertise that comes with a life-long calling abnd gifts to ministry, studying divinity, had its benefits in recognizing the finer points of theology.  The presbyterians also held that the magistrate was not by office to judge in matters in sacra.  He though, ought to receive the determinations of the Church, and, if seeing them as from God’s Word by his conscience, being instructed by the doctors of the Church, then he ought to uphold them civilly with his power.  If he, by his conscience, did not believe they were rightly determined, he might give his reasons, and send them back to the Church to be determined again more accurately.  If this was to no avail, he might not enforce them civilly, but he was not to positively determine the matters in sacra and then enforce them civilly (contra Nye).

Together with a Brief Answer to the Pretenses of Edmond Chillenden for the Lawfulness of Preaching Without Ordination  1647  65 pp.

Seaman (d. 1675) was a divine-right presbyterian.  Simpson (1600?-1655) was an Independent Westminster divine.  Here is his Diatribe (1647).

Seaman argues that “The practice of those in these days who commonly preach, and receive maintenance for so doing, refusing or neglecting to be ordained, is not to be justified by the Scripture, or by the doctrine of, or approved example in any of the Reformed Churches; but forbidden in their Books of Discipline, and condemned by their divines as the opinion and practice of Anabaptists, Libertines, Arminians, and Socinians.”

Chillenden (fl. 1631–1678) was an English soldier, known as an agitator and theological writer.  At different times he was a Leveller and a Fifth Monarchist.  He wrote, Preaching Without Ordination (London, 1647), which Seaman here replies to.

A Discourse of the Freedom of the Will  (London, 1675)  245 pp.

This book has three parts.  The first argues against “those arguments…  in opposition to that liberty of the will, which [liberty] is placed in the determining of its power, received from the First Cause, unto a contrariety or contradiction in its actings, with an independency upon the First Cause, the order and connection of causes, and the understanding.”

The second part further argues “the reasons upon which that opinion of this freedom is established. These Reasons are taken 1. from the will it self; 2. from the nature of sin, and the divine justice; 3. the language of the Scripture; 4. from the end of laws; 5. from the order and nature of things.”  The third part is “An enlargement upon the argument taken from the mediation of Christ.”

Many Independents interpreted Rev. 18:4 as God saying to separate even from the established reformed Churches.  Strong, an Independent, shows himself much more moderate:

“There are another sort, who, though they deny not all Churches as the former [persons], yet like to the Donatists of old, they acknowledge none but their own; all other they readily term Antichristian and such as they can hold no communion with, though they profess to believe the same principles of religion and walk in holiness of conversation: yet they deny them communion as Churches, unless they come under their form.” – p. 12 ff.

A True Relation of the Chief Passages Between Mr. Anthony Wotton & Mr. George Walker in the Years 1611-1615, Written by George Walker for the Vindicating of Himself from Some Imputations Laid on Him by Mr. Thomas Gataker in his Defense of Mr. Wotton  1642  36 pp.

Wotton (c. 1561–1626) was an English clergyman, controversialist, and professor of divinity.  Christopher Hill described him as a Modernist and Ramist.

“In 1611 George Walker (1581?-1651) accused him [Wotton] of Socinianism; this led to a ‘conference’ of learned divines, which ended in Wotton’s vindication.  The controversy went on till 1615, and in 1641, long after Wotton’s death, Walker repeated his accusations. This provoked Mr. Anthony Wotton’s Defence (Cambridge, 1641, published under the name of Thomas Gataker, who, however, only wrote the postscript, the Defence being by Wotton’s son, Samuel…  Walker replied in A True Relation of the cheife Passages…

“Mr. Wotton in his papers which he dispersed in this city, and which he acknowledged to be his own when I [Walker] brought them to his face before Mr. Gataker and eight other grave ministers, does deny the imputation of the whole obedience of Christ, to the Law of God; both active and passive, both joyntly and severally.  He affirms that there is no end or use whatsoever of the imputation of Christ his righteousnesse for justification.  He renounces the law in whole and part, performed by ourselves, or any other in our stead for our justification…  he sets up faith, even the act of believing for righteousness, affirms that it is said to be imputed in a proper
sense without a trope, and serves for all purposes in our justification under the Gospell, as perfect righteousness of works performed to the whole law did for mans justification in the first covenant.  He denies the punishment of our sins in Christ, and the satisfaction which in Him our head & surety was made to God’s justice for purchase of our pardon…

These and such like speeches I condemned for Socinian heresy and blasphemy, as Beza, Paraeus and Lubertus had done before me, and for this Mr. Gataker did deride me, when I gave in my charge against Mr. Wotton 27 years ago, and now [Gataker] blames it in me as falsehood and dishonesty.” – pp. 1-3
