PREFACE.

In this Volume the Reader will find some names familiar to the ear as household words; while Ecclesiastical History is further illustrated under the articles of Ignatius, Justin, Irenæus, and St. Jerome, in reference to the Primitive Church; of Hildebrand, Huss, Lanfranc, and Langham, with reference to Medieval Christianity; of Latimer, Knox, and Jewel, with reference to the Reformation; of Hooker, Hoadley, Hough, Ken, Kettlewell, and Laud, as respects the later periods of the English Church.

I am indebted to the Rev. GEORGE WYATT, Rector of Burghwallis, for the Life of Heylyn.

The article on Bishop Berkley, in a former Volume, was contributed by W. P. WOOD, Esq., M.P. By a mistake, the acknowledgment was not made in the proper place.

I have to express my obligations to the Rev. J. A. BEAUMONT, M. A., Incumbent of St. Paul's, Leeds, for the kindness and care with which he has superintended the passing of this and the three preceding Volumes through the Press.
