“…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

What do the numbers in parentheses mean?

The first number next to the authors’ names below in the parenthesis is how many works of theirs can be read in full online.

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, and now lately have been published with great industry in two pamphlets at London. The one entitled ‘Issachar’s burden, etc.’ written and published at Oxford by John Maxwell, a Scottish prelate, excommunicated by the Church of Scotland, and declared an unpardonable incendiary by the parliaments of both kingdoms. The other falsely entitled ‘A declaration made by King James in Scotland, concerning church-government and presbyteries’, but indeed written by Patrick Adamson, pretended Archbishop of St. Andrews, contrary to his own conscience, as himself on his death-bed did confess and subscribe before many witnesses in a write hereunto annexed ToC

The Life of William, now Lord Arch-Bishop of Canterbury, Examined. Wherein his Principal Actions, or Deviations in Matters of Doctrine and Discipline (since he came to that sea of Canturbury) are traced, and set down, as they were taken from good hands, by Mr. Robert Bayley, a learned pastor of the Kirk of Scotland, and one of the late commissioners sent from that Nation. Very fitting for all judicious men to read, and examine, that they may be the better able to censure him for those thing wherein he hath done amiss. Read and Judge, 1643

A Parallel or Brief comparison of the liturgy with the mass-book, the breviary, the ceremonial, and other romish rituals. Wherein is clearly and 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. All made good from the testimonies of the most famous and learned liturgic writers both Romish and English, ToC

A Review of the Seditious Pamphlet Lately Published in Holland by Dr. Bramhell, pretended Bishop of London-Derry, entitled, ‘His fair warning against the Scots’ discipline’.

As also, the Solemn League and Covenant of the three nations justified and maintained, 1649 ToC

A Scotch Antidote Against the English Infection of Arminianism, which little book may be (through God’s blessing) very useful to preserve those that are yet found in the faith, from the infection of Mr John Goodwin’s great book, 1652 ToC

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.
