1  A Demonstration of That Discipline, Which Christ has prescribed in His Word, for the Government of His Church, in All Times and Places until the End of the World. (1895)

2  The State of the Church of England Lain Open in a conference Between a Bishop, a Papist, a Usurer, an Innkeeper, and a Preacher of the Word of God. (1895)


John Udall was an English Puritan whose insistence on a literal observance of Scriptural precepts left him at odds with the Church of England. Imprisoned for his views, he suffered a long court battle. He was eventually pardoned by the queen when it was agreed that he would be sent to serve as a pastor in Syria, but he died before ever leaving England.


Unknown Authors

1   Abyssus Mali or the Corruption of Man's Nature - Briefly Handled in some of its Principal Parts - Grounded upon Psalm 14:1-3 (1676)

2   An Attestation to the Testimony of our Reverend Brethren of the Province of London to the Truth of Jesus Christ (1648)

3   The Star of the Eastern Sages - A Discourse upon that Star, Also Some Account of Comets. (1681)


The following is an excerpt from the Introduction of A Demonstration of Discipline, published in 1588.

There is nothing more heart-rending than judicial murder for ecclesiastical opinions; when men of the highest personal integrity and spotless citizenship come to their end unrighteously, either by long imprisonment or by swift execution. It is one of the glories of Queen Victoria's reign, that no one has suffered therein the extreme penalty of the law, for any simple political offence (sic); much more, for ecclesiastical matters. Yet, solely for Diotrephes and this Demonstration, John Udall, an absolutely upright and pure-minded man, was cut off in the prime of life, a victim to the secular power and political influence of Queen Elizabeth's Bishops.
