Papal Usurpation and Persecution; The History Of the Old Waldenses and Albigenses
[BRAY, Thomas]; PERRIN, John Paul
Title page continues: "As it has been Exercis'd in Ancient and Modern Times with Respect both to Princes & People; With Respect both to Princes & People; A Fair Warning to all Protestants, To guard themselves with the utmost Caution against the Encroachments & Invasions of Popery; As they value their Estates, Lives and Liberties, But above all, As they would preserve their Consciences free from the forest of all Tyrannies and Oppressions. The whole Divided into Two Tomes, Answerable to the Subject Matter, as it relates both to Princes and People; And Designed as Supplemental to the Book of Martyrs, as well in the several Ages Antecedent to the Reformation, where that is found Defective; As by continuing the same most useful Part of Ecclesiastical History, Martyrology, down to these present times." Second title page continues: "Those Two Glorious Witnesses to the Truth of Christianity: In Opposition to the Antichristianism of Rome, In the several Ages proceeding the Reformation. In Five Books: I. Shewing their Original, and the Testimonies given of their Faith and Probity. II. The History of the Waldenses, and the Persecutions more peculiar to them, with their several Dispersions. III. The History of the Albigenses, and the Cruel Wars and Persecutions which they sustain'd till the Year One Thousand Two Hundred and Thirteen. IV. The History of their latter Wars and Persecutions, from One Thousand Two Hundred and Thirteen, till their utter Suppression. V. The precious Remains of their Doctrine and Discipline."
