to the explanation of the causes at work in the Reformation, and the reformatory efforts which preceded the great movement of the sixteenth century. A Chronological Table of Contents and an Index have been added; and the volume has been increased altogether by nearly a fourth part.
These changes, I hope, may render the volume more worthy of the favourable reception which has been accorded to it by the public ; but I must still claim for it the character of a series of popular studies, originally designed to interest a public audience in a great period, fruitful in great men and in lessons of enduring meaning. The sketches are, as far as I could make them, fair, accurate, and living ; but they do not profess to be anything more than sketches.
The authorities have been given for the most part carefully, except in the Introduction ; and in some instances the references may be found serviceable by the student.
