PREFACE.

The Barry Scholarship, in theUniversity of Durham, was adjudged, last Easter Term, to the following Essay. It has been published because the Author thought that it might possibly be useful now that the attention of English Churchmen is so eagerly drawn to the important controversies pending between the Churches of England and Rome; and in this opinion several clerical friends, strongly concurred. The Essay stands almost as it did when the prize was adjudged. A few additions, however, have been made, which, upon maturer consideration, suggested themselves.

The Article discussed is one of vital importance; and if the Author can only, by this little work, tighten in some small degree the cord of love that binds it to the hearts of his fellow Churchmen, it will fully realize his fervent hopes.

“ Prosper Thou, Lord, the work of our hands upon us! O prosper Thou our handy-work!" Folkestone,

Jan. 1st, 1852.
