Excerpt from Lives of the Elizabethan Bishops: Of the Anglican Church
This work comprises seventy-six Lives, commencing with William Barlow, consecrated in 1536, and ending with John Jegon, consecrated in 1603. Nearly every book bearing on the subject has been carefully read, and, where necessary, used; but the material employed has been largely taken from manuscripts which have either never been printed or, if so, seldom come in the way of the general reader. In the former case they have, wherever it was possible, been con sulted in the originals, and exactly quoted as there given.
Among them may be mentioned the State Papers at the Public Record Office; the large collections at the British Museum; those at Lambeth, including the archiepiscopal registers; the Petyt Papers at the Inner Temple; and last, but not least, the most interesting and important collection at Hatfield, which, by the kindness of the Marquis of Salisbury, the author was allowed to consult. Of these, nearly two hundred volumes were carefully perused, and extracts made where judged necessary.
