Item description for Doctrine Et Politia Ecclesiae Anglicanae: An Anglican Summan (Studies in the History of Christian Thought) by Richard Mocket & M. A. Screech...
Warden Richard Mocket's Doctrina et Politia Ecclesiae Anglicanae is a Summa of Anglican doctrine and organisation compiled by a chaplain of Abbot, Archbishop of Canterbury. It includes (anonymously) Jewel's Apologia for the Church of England, Nowell's Catechism, the thirty-nine Articles (in a controversial Latin version), Mocket's own -- unique -- Latin translation of the Jacobean Book of Common Prayer, a brief summary of the official Anglican Homilies and Mocket's treatise Disciplina et Politia Ecclesia Anglicanae with the variants of his little-known manuscript and the issues of 1616 and 1617 of the printed edition. The whole volume is given in facsimile, the text being that of 1617 (edited). James I condemned the edition to be burnt (1617). It is therefore little known. The introduction (by M.A.Screech) discusses why so important a book was burnt, with the result that it -- as well as this edition of Jewel's Apologia and Nowell's Catechism are all but unknown.
