Pàgina 42 - Bel and the Dragon', observes, that " sometimes also in the church very great cheats are put upon the people, by false miracles, contrived, or countenanced at least, by their priests for some gain and temporal advantage."* And what their own authors confess of some of their miracles, we may venture, without any breach of charity, to believe of them all : nay, we cannot indeed believe any thing...
Pàgina 25 - Now a carpenter that felleth timber, after he hath sawn down a tree meet for the purpose, and taken off all the bark skilfully round about, and hath wrought it handsomely, and made a vessel thereof fit for the service of man's life...
