soby many blind Zealots in the Papacy; Other times it is ur-
ged againt some men, or Bishops commanding

them top Trelinquish their Revenues and Jurisdi&ion, thus by many impetuous Presbyters. The former notion is more ingenious, and carries less partiality with it then the latter, that inviting all men to a voluntary beggery, and levelling community, this
