HE Volumes, I am now prefenting the World with, are, truly speaking, no other than loofe Papers; and the Author, that great and venerable Prelate, whofe Name they bear, does not feem to have defign'd them for the Prefs: And upon this Account it is I have debated for fome Time with my felf, whether a Publication of them would any ways leffen the Efteem of that Good and Excellent Man; whofe Labours, in the Learned Languages as well as our own, have justly gained high Applaufe, and done fo much good in the World already. Upon confulting then with feveral Eminent Divines, and other Pious and Learned Gentlemen, my very good Friends, they did, after Ferufal, conceive of them as juft and choice Fragments, containing a Summary of the Chriftian Doctrine; the feveral Topicks being digefted in a most excellent Method, confirm'd from feveral Parallel Places of Scripture; and very often illuftrated, in the like concife manner, from the Teftimonies of Fathers, Councils, &c. And upon thefe Confiderations, I perfwade my felf, what I offer will be in fome meafure ferviceable to all in general that apply themselves to the Study of the Holy Scriptures, especially the Clergy, who will


bere meet with fo fure a Guide, and have fo true a Foundation laid for the Superstructure they shall think fit to raise upon it. And I have been ftill more inclined to think they may ferve thefe good Ends, after thofe many Letters I have received from feveral Parts of this Kingdom, as well as from abroad, full of earneft Sollicitations to oblige the World with the Remains of that Perfon, whofe profound Learning, exemplary Piety, and fingular Humility has fo much endear'd bis Memory to the whole Chriftian World; and more efpecially to thofe that have a just sense of Religion on their Minds.
