Church and State in the Modern Age: A Documentary History

By J. F. MacLear | Go to book overview

through centuries of ill repute, for the truth's sake, and now reap the fruit of their patience and long suffering! And all those blessed martyrs of these later ages, who have fought the battles of the faith under such discouragement, who mourned, more than over their own fetters or their own pain, over the desolate ways of their own Sion and the departure of England's religious glory: oh! how must they bless God, who hath again visited His people, how take part in our joy, as they see the lamp of the temple again enkindled and rebrightening, as they behold the silver links of that chain which has connected their country with the See of Peter in its vicarial government changed into burnished gold; not stronger nor more closely knit, but more beautifully wrought and more brightly arrayed!

Ecclesiastical Titles Act (Extract) August 1, 1851

Parliament in 1829 had provided that Catholic bishops were not to take territorial titles held by Anglican bishops, but this measure, the result of the uproar over Rome's decision to set up a Catholic hierarchy, went farther. Catholics largely ignored the act, which was never enforced. It was repealed in 1871.

WHEREAS divers of Her Majesty's Roman Catholic Subjects have assumed to themselves the Titles of Archbishop and Bishops of a pretended Province, and of pretended Sees or Dioceses, within the United Kingdom, under colour of an alleged Authority given to them . . . by certain Briefs, Rescripts, or Letters Apostolical from the See of Rome . . .: And whereas by the Act of the Tenth Year of King George the Fourth, Chapter Seven, . . . it was enacted, that if any Person . . ., other than the Person thereunto authorized by Law, should assume or use the Name, Style, or Title of Archbishop of any Province, Bishop of any Bishopric, or Dean of any Deanery, in England or Ireland, he should for every such Offence forfeit . . . One hundred pounds: And whereas it may be doubted whether the recited Enactment extends to the Assumption of the Title of Archbishop or Bishop of a pretended Province or Diocese . . . or Dean of any pretended Deanery . . ., not being the See, Province, or Diocese of any Archbishop or Bishop or Deanery of any Dean
