PREFACE.

This volume contains the historical portion of the work entitled, “A Text-Book of Popery; comprising a History of the Council of Trent, held A. D. 1545—1563, and a complete view of the theological system of Popery. By J. M. Cramp. Second Edition. 1839. 8vo.” It has been rearranged and abridged by the author. As it was deemed unnecessary,

in a work intended for general readers, to crowd the margin with references, it may suffice to state, that the authorities chiefly consulted are the rival histories of Father Paul and Cardinal Pallavicini, and the voluminous collection of documents relative to the Council, published by Le Plat, A. D. 1781-1787, in seven quarto volumes.
