But it was not until the year 1547 that the object contemplated by Convocation was carried into effect. The chief mover in that business was Archbishop Cranmer, who, besides giving his own time and labour to the work, took great pains to secure the co-operation of his brother-prelates. By this means a series of Homilies was composed, which were imprinted in parts, collected into a Volume, and placed in the hands of the parochial Clergy- that all Curates of what learning so ever they might be, might have some godly and fruitful lessons in readiness to read and declare unto their parishioners, for their edifying, instruction and comfort.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
