Divinity Studies free pdf Excerpt from Divinity Studies: Number One- The Contest for Liberty of Conscience in England A mighty and prolonged contest for religious liberty is one of the marked characteristics of modern history. From it has resulted the most important attainment of recent centuries. In this treatise I purpose to study so much of this contest as belongs to England. The minds of men have ever been in a state of doubt and uncertainty concerning this phase of the general Reformation movement. It would almost seem that in some conspicuous instances historians have been led to their conclusions concerning it by denominational pride, rather than by evidence. There is much conflict of statement. John M. Baxter, in his "Church History of England," has stated that Whatsoever merit Independency may claim for advocating the rights of conscience, it is certain that the first clear and argumentative assertion of those rights proceeded from the pen of a suffering churchman, sequestered for no greater offense than that of loyalty, Jeremy Taylor (p. 607). Henry Martin Dexter, the author of "Congregationalism as Seen in its Literature," declares: Robert Browne, I must think, is entitled to the proud preeminence of having been the first writer clearly to state and defend in the English tongue the true-and now accepted-doctrine of the relation of the magistrate to the Church (p. 101). Robert Browne, the founder of the sect known as "Brownists," was also the father of Independency, using the word in its narrower sense. Thus the leading historian of the Congregationalists claims for his denomination the glory of having begun the contest for religious liberty. David Masson, in his "Life and Times of Milton," makes a still different statement: Not to the Church of England, however, nor to English Puritanism at large, does the honour of the first perception of the full principle of Liberty of Conscience, and its assertion in English, belong. That honor has to be assigned, I believe, to the Independents generally, and the Baptists in particular. (Vol. III, p. 987.)
