This collection was published early on at the Restoration (1st ed. 1661) and here in the second edition 1671. It was part of the Restoration attempt to insure that the Church of England stuck to what at the time was considered their ancient doctrines contra the Puritans. It was published in the same spirit as the Sealed Book of Common Prayer (1662)--"this is what we believe and let us not forget it." In the "Preface to the Reader" the compiler, Anthony Sparrow makes the case that church must maintain its purity in doctrine and discipline, citing the Old Testament & St. Paul. He makes a distinctiong between infallibility and authority in the church, but states based on Deut. 17, "that in doubts the Inferiour were to stand to the decision and sentence of the Priests and the Judge, and yet their judgment was not infallible... This Authority in determining doubts and controversies, the Church hath practised in all Ages, and her constant practice is the best interpreter of her right... From these premises it plainly follows that our dear Mother the Church of England in making these Canons and Articles for determining of controversies in matters of belief, which you may see in the ensuing Collection, did no more than what was both her right and her duty to do, both for the preservation of her peace, and the guidance and conduct of the souls committed to her charge; and what her care hath been in the exercise of this power for the good of her members ever since the Reformation, will evidently to her honour appear by this following Collection, made up not without great care industry of the Publisher... for by the CAnons and Articles following, which were formerly scattered and hard to be seen by every one, now gathered together into a body, it easily appearts to any that will open their eyes and read, that the Reformation of this Church was orderly and Synodical by the Guides and Governours of souls, and confirmed by Supreme Authority, and so in every particular as legal as any Reformation could or ought to be."

Bernard Gilpin (1517-1583) "English clergyman, called 'The Apostle of the North'... He was educated at Queen's College, Oxford... He was one of the first scholars elected to Christ Church, on the completion of Wolsey's foundation by Henry VIII. To clear up his theological doubts he went abroad in 1552 and lived for several years in Louvain and Paris. On his return to England in 1556 he was made rector of Easington and archdeacon of Durham, despite the fact that he now adopted the theology of the Reformation. Soon afterward he became rector of Houghton-le-Spring. His life at Houghton is said to have been a ceaseless round of benevolent activity; and his extensive charities here and throughout the northern counties soon won for him wide popularity, which, coupled with his Protestant views and his fearless denunciation of clerical vices, naturally made him enemies among the clergy. He was accused before Edmund Bonner, bishop of London, and would have been tried for heresy, and probably beheaded, but for an accident. While on his way to London for trial he broke his
