Excerpt from A Manual of the English Constitution: With a Review of Its Rise, Growth, and Present State
The progress of civil government and legislation, and the degree in which freedom was enjoyed by the people, very much depended, especially after the Reformation, on the prevailing ecclesiastical policy of the sovereign or the Parliament; I have therefore treated the Constitu tion as both civil and ecclesiastical, so far as the latter is exhibited in laws having reference to the civil or reli gions liberty of the people.
