A free examination of the inefficacious, impolitic, and unwise methods employed to prevent the growth of popery :
with a rational inquiry into the secret causes of its continuance in these kingdoms : in this interesting work it is fully demonstrated that breach of faith with heretics, enmity to civil liberty, disobedience to princess of a different persuasion, sanguinary massacres of those of another religion, and intolerant laws against Protestants in popish countries are neither sanctioned by the practice, nor founded on the principles of the Roman Catholic religion, and that the reasons for persecuting Catholics are grounded on principles which authorize Protestants to use similar hostility against all Christian sects whatsoever.
A collection of anti-papal and anti-Catholic letters, tracts, and other documents dated in 1766.
