FAITH AND PRACTICE;
A DEFENCE OF THE CATHOLIC DOCTRINE
HAS BEEN SINCE THE TIMES OF THE APOSTLES
THE SOLE DIVINE RULE OF FAITH AND PRACTICE TO THE CHURCH,
AGAINST THE DANGEROUS ERRORS OF
THE AUTHORS OF THE TRACTS FOR THE TIMES,
AND THE ROMANISTS,
AS, PARTICULARLY, THAT THE RULE OF FAITH IS “MADE UP OF SCRIPTURE AND
IN WHICH ALSO THE DOCTRINES OF
The Apostolical Succession, the Eucharistic Sacrifice, &c.
ARE FULLY DISCUSSED.

That such would be the case, was for a long time studiously concealed from public view. So much caution, indeed, was exercised in the earlier part of their career by the Tractators, that to none but those who were somewhat acquainted with the controversial writings of divines on the points touched upon, so as to see the full force and tendency of the terms used, was it apparent whither they were going; though to such, I may add, it was abundantly evident. And the first intimation of it to the public mind was in the very seasonable publication of Mr. Froude's Remains, a work which clearly and most opportunely revealed the real spirit and views of the (to use Mr. Froude's own term) " conspirators” against the present order of things in our Church.
