first were of godly intent and
purpose devised, and yet at
length turned to vanity and
superstition : some entered into
the Church by undiscreet devo-
tion, and such a zeal as was
without knowledge ; and for be-
cause they were winked at in
the beginning, they grew daily
to more and more abuses, which
not only for their unprofitable-
ness, but also because they have
much blinded the people, and



obscured the glory of God, are
worthy to be cut away, and
clean rejected : other there be,
which although they have been
devised by man, yet it is thought
good to reserve them still, as
well for a decent order in the
Church, (for the which they
were first devised) as because
they pertain to edification,
whereunto all things done
the Church (as the Apostle
teacheth) ought to be referred.

And although the keeping or
omitting of a Ceremony, in it-
self considered, is but a small
thing; yet the wilful and con

temptuous transgression and
breaking of a common order and
discipline is no small offence
before God, Let all things be
done among i/otf, saith St. Paul,
in a seemly and due order :
The appointment of the which
order pertaineth not to private
men ; therefore no man ought
to take in hand, nor presume
to appoint or alter any publick
or common Order in Christ's
Church, except he be lawfully
called and authorized thereunto.

And whereas in this our time,
the minds of men are so diverse,
that some think it a great matter
of conscience to depart from a
piece of the least of their Cere-
monies, they be so addicted to
their old customs ; and again on
the other side, some be so new-
fangled, that they would inno-
vate all things, and so despise
the old, that nothing can like
them, but that is new : it was
thought expedient, not so much
to have respect how to please
and satisfy either of these par-
ties, as how to please God, and
profit them both. And yet lest
any man should be offended,
whom good reason might satisfy,
here be certain causes rendered,
why some of the accustomed
Ceremonies be put away, and
some retained and kept still.

Some are put away, because
the great excess and multitude
of them hath so increased in
these latter daya, that the bur-
den of them was intolerable;
whereof St. Augustine in his
time complained, that they were
grown to such a number, that
the estate of Christian people
was in worse case concerning
that matter, than were the
Jews. And he counselled that
such yoke and burden should be



taken away, as time would serve
quietly to do it. But what
would St. Augustine have said,
if he had seen the Ceremonies
of late days used among us ;
whereunto the multitude used
in his time was not to be com-
pared ? This our excessive mul-
titude of Ceremonies was so
great, and many of them so
dark, that they did more con-
found and darken, than declare
and set forth Christ's benefits
unto us. And besides this,
Christ's Gospel is not a Cere-
monial Law (as much of Moses'
Law was), but it is a Religion
to serve God, not in bondage
of the figure or shadow, but
in the freedom of the Spirit;
being content only with those
Ceremonies which do serve to
a decent Order and godly Dis-
cipline, and such as be apt to
stir np the dull mind of man
to the remembrance of his duty
to God, by some notable and
special signification, whereby he
might be edified. Furthermore,
the most weighty cause of the
abolishment of certain Cere-
monies was, That they were so
far abused, partly by the super-
stitious blindness of the rude
and unlearned, and partly by
the unsatiable avarice of such
as sought more their own lucre,
than the glory of God, that the
abuses could not well be taken
away, the thing remaining still.

But now as concerning those Seasons fct
persons, which peradventure will ^JJe^J,.
be offended, for that some of monies,
the old Ceremonies are retained
still : If they consider that with-
out some Ceremonies it is not
possible to keep any Order, or
quiet Discipline in the Church,
they shall easily perceive just
cause to reform their judgments.



10



Aud if they think much, that
any of the old do remain, and
would rather hare all devised
anew : then such men granting
some Ceremonies convenient to
be had, surely where the old
may be well used, there they
cannot reasonably reprove the
old only for their age, without
bewraying of their own folly.
For in such a case they ought
rather to have reverence unto
them for their antiquity, if they
will declare themselves to be
more studious of unity and con-
cord, than of innovations and
new-fangleness, which (as much
as may be with true setting forth
1 of Christ's Religion) is always to
be eschewed. Furthermore, such
shall have no just cause with
the Ceremonies reserved to be
offended. For as those be taken
away which were most abused,
and did burden men's consciences
wfthout any cause ; so the other
that remain, are retained for a
discipline and order, which (upon

just causes) may be altered and
changed, and therefore are not
to be esteemed equal with God's
Law. And moreover, they be
neither dark n|r dumb Cere-
monies, but are so set forth,
that every man may understand
what they do mean, and to what
use they do serve. So that it
is not like that they in time to
come should be abused as other
have been. And in these our
doings we condemn no other
Nations, nor prescribe any thing
but to our own people only : For
we think it convenient that every
Country should use such Cere-
monies as they shall think best to
the setting forth of God's honour
and glory, and to the reducing of
the people to a most perfect and
godly living, without error or su-
perstition ; and that they should
put away other things, which
from time to time they perceive
to be most abused, as in men's
ordinances it often chanceth di-
versely in divers countries.



THE ORDER HOW THE
TO BE

THE Psalter shall be read
through once every Month,
as it is there appointed, both
for Morning and Evening Prayer.
But in February it shall be read
only to the twenty -eighth, or
twenty-ninth Day of the Month.
And, whereas January, March,
May, July, August, October, and
December have One -and -thirty
days apiece ; It is ordered, that
the same Psalms shall be read
the_ last day of the said months,
which were read the day before :
So that the Psalter may begin
again the first day of the next
month ensuing.



PSALTER IS APPOINTED
READ.

And, whereas the 119th Psalm
is divided into twenty-two por-
tions, and is over-long to be read
at one time; It is so ordered,
that at one time shall not be
read above four or five of the
said portions.

And at the end of every Psalm,
and of every such part of the
119th Psalm, shall be repeated
this Hymn,

Glory be to the Father, and
to the Son : and to the J?oZi/
Ghost ;

As it was in the beginning, is
now, and ever shall be : world
without end. Amen.

ORDER FOR READING REST OF HOLY SCRIPTURE.

NOTE, That the Psalter follow-
eth the division of the Hebrews,
and the Translation of the great



English Bible, set forth and used
in the time of King Henry the
Eighth, and Edward the Sixth.



THE ORDER HOW THE EEST OF HOLY SCRIPTURE
IS APPOINTED TO BE READ.



HHHE Old Testament is ap-
-L pointed for the First Lessons
at Morning and Evening Prayer,
so as the most part thereof will
be read every year once, as in
the Calendar is appointed.

The New Testament is ap-
pointed for the Second Lessons
at Morning and Evening Prayer,
and shall be read, over orderly
every year twice, once in the
morning and once in the evening,
besides the Epistles and Gospels,
except the Apocalypse, out of
which there are only certain
Lessons appointed at the end
of the year, and certain Proper
Lessons appointed upon divers
feasts.

And to know what Lessons
shall be read every day, look for
the day of the month in the
Calendar following, and there
ye shall find the chapters and
portions of chapters that shall
be read for the Lessons, both at
Morning and Evening Prayer,
except only the moveable feasts,
which are not in the Calendar,
and the immoveable, where there
is a blank left in the column of
Lessons, the Proper Lessons for
all which days are to be found
in the Table of Proper Lessons.

If Evening Prayer is said at
two different times in the same
place of worship on any Sunday
(except a Sunday for which al-
ternative Second Lessons are
specially appointed in the Table,)
the Second Lesson at the second



time may, at the discretion of
the minister, be any chapter
from the four Gospels, or any
Lesson appointed in the Table
of Lessons from the four Gos-
pels.

Upon occasions, to be approved
by the Ordinary, other Lessons
may, with his consent, be sub-
stituted for those which are ap-
pointed in the Calendar.

And note that whensoever
Proper Psalms or Lessons are
appointed, then the Psalms and
Lessons of ordinary course ap-
pointed in the Psalter and Ca-
lendar (if they be different) shall
be omitted for that time.

Note also that upon occasions
to be appointed by the Ordinary,
other Psalms may, with his con-
sent, be substituted for those
appointed in the Psalter.

If any of the Holy-days for
which Proper Lessons are ap-
pointed in the Table fall npon a
Sunday which is the first Sun-
day in Advent, Easter Day,
Whitsunday, or Trinity Sunday,
the Lessons appointed for such
Sunday shall be read, but if it
fall upon any other Sunday, the
Lessons appointed either for the
Sunday or for the Holy-day may
be read at the discretion of the
minister.

Note also that the Collect,
Epistle, and Gospel appointed
for the Sunday shall serve all
the week after, where it is not
in this book otherwise ordered.
