The Illustrated Christian Martyrology free pdf Excerpt from The Illustrated Christian Martyrology: Being an Authentic and Genuine Historical Account of the Principal Persecutions Against the Church of Christ, in Different Parts of the World- By the Pagan and Papists- Compiled From the Latest Sources It is the design of this work to open an honest page of the history of the church of Rome. It makes no attempt to conceal the deformity, or excuse the wrong which that history discloses. If Romanism is worth knowing at all, it is worth knowing as it is. If the voice of the past utters any lesson, it should be fully stated and fairly learned. The editor does not possess, and therefore has not practised upon, that false liberality which shrinks from calling things by their right names. Truth is good enough and kind enough for him- and if the faithful recital of the deeds of Rome pain the ear and shock the heart, it can not be the fault of him who makes it, but of the system whose records constitute the revolting details. We desire to create a salutary dread of popery, by showing how naturally and inevitably it leads to cruelty, intolerance, and superstition. Such has always been its history, and, from its very nature, always will be. The assumptions and principles of the system render persecution unavoidable. The idea that the church is infallible, and that there can be no salvation out of her, almost sanctifies the persecution of what she esteems heresy, and turns the cruelties and bloodshed, which may be requisite to suppress it, to guard the church from supposed corruption, into positive virtue and benevolence. Thus the purest and most compassionate, under the influence of the system, are equally liable to practise upon the revolting principle, as the ambitious or the cruel. Our design is to illustrate this truth by showing that, through all the periods of her history, persecution has been the doctrine and practice of the church, as well those of a mild as of an inhuman temper- it is an unalterable and essential feature of popery, which no change or modification can destroy, and no circumstances for a time suppress. We shall be happy if the sad and mournful tale we have to tell shall produce a conviction of this truth. The aspect of the times both favor and demand a general and thorough discussion of the character and claims of popery. It is no longer a question of speculation or theory. The encroachments which popery has made upon every department of society, and the position of influence, respectability, and force, which it is fast assuming, render it fearfully practical. It has become the great question of the age, and whatever may be our reluctance to enter upon it, it can no longer be avoided. At such a time, it is the belief of the editor, that a work, presenting the system in the form and aspect of impartial history, will be both acceptable and useful. The work is a diligent and laborious compilation of Christian Martyrology, from the earliest period to the present time. Access has been had to a great variety of materials, and the editor's aim has been to select and present, in a succinct and striking form, the principal instances of persecution and cruelty practised by the Romish church. The work will contain many facts and illustrations which have never appeared before, and will, when completed, form a complete and accurate portraiture of Rome as it was and Rome as it it.
