Not illustrated. 1810 edition. Excerpt: ...that for five and twenty jears together, yet what would this make for the unlimited sovereignty and universality of that church, unless a better evidence than feed Thy sheep could be produced for its uncontrollable supremacy and dominion over the whole christian world? 7. The sum is this, granting what none that has any reverence for antiquity will deny, that st. Peter was at Rome, he probably came thither some few years before his death, joined with, and assisted st.
