BISHOP SANDERSON

AND

BISHOP WREN.

It is well known, from Walton's Life of Sanderson, that under the exigencies of the times and in compliance with the friendly advice of “a Parliament-man of power and note,” he thought it right “in the Public Service of God, and Offices of the Church to vary somewhat from the strict rules of the Rubrick."*

The General Confession in the Daily Service is given in its altered form by Walton; and in his Tract, entitled “The Case of the Use of the Liturgy stated in the late times,” Sanderson has enumerated many particulars of his practice. †

By the kindness of the Dean and Chapter of Windsor, I am enabled to set forth the entire Service Book, so modified.

On the first flyleaf of the volume containing it, there is written,

FOR WINDSOR COLLEGE LIBRARY.

Bp. Sanderson's
Common Pray' Book,

M: S:
With MS. Sermons and

the Singing Pss;

* See the collected Edition of Bp. Sanderson's Works, vi. 312, for similar instances. The last volume of Jeremy Taylor's Works, as edited by Heber, contains a collection of Offices and Forms of Prayer “intended as a charitable ministry to them who are not permitted to use those which were appointed formerly.”

+ Sanderson's Works, v, 37, 57.
§ i. e. T. Sternhold, J. Hopkins, W. Whittingham, and others.
At London, printed by John Daye, dwelling over Aldersgate.
