"Veritas, the moderatrix of divisions in the Church, declaring the way to peace and tranquillity, couched in an answer to Mr. W. H. touching the morality of the Sabbath day, intituled Speculum Sabbati;" by William Seile, 17th century

MS. Rawl. C. 592

  • Request

A dedication to King Charles I. is prefixed, followed by an address to the High Court of Parliament, etc., and by a second title, with an epistle "to my reverend friend Mr. W. H., March 20, 1627."

The second title is as follows: "Speculum Sabbati; wherein the false and weake grounds of the Sabbatists of our daies are discouered and refelled."

The book is apparently an answer to the view of the Fourth Commandment maintained in Will. Hinde's treatise on the Moral Law under the Gospel, published in 1620.
