A Compendium Of Ecclesiastical History, Vol. 3 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Compendium Of Ecclesiastical History, Vol. 3 Besides the truth should not be disguised, that times of agitation in which ideas of a thousand different shapes have been cast into the midst of the ecclesiastical community, but have hardly yet been clearly ascertained with regard to their reasons, or their nature and value; times, in which the people has indeed arrived at the perception of its want, but not at its clear recognition or true expression, and in which parties are seeking to vindicate their own struggles as the people's will: that such times are not adapted to great mixt assemblages, in'which deeply penetrating alterations in ecclesiastical institutions and relations should be brought under deliberation. Again ecclesiastical deliberations require above all others, calm and dispassionate thoughtfulness it is equally disadvantageous, when on such occasions party determinations are past into law by agitation or by talent, as when a practical juste milieu fails to be attained by means of reciprocal limitations and concessions.
