AFTER the foregoing sheets were printed off, I was favoured by the very worthy descendants of the pious and learned Archbishop SHARP, with the present of a small but curious work lately published, which belongs to the ecclesiastical history of the xviiith century. It contains an account of the measures that were taken, and of the correspondence that was carried on, in the year 1711, 1712, and 1713, for the introduction of the liturgy of the church of England into the kingdom of Prussia, and the electorate of Hanover. To this historical account are annexed several letters and original papers that are very interesting, more especially a plan of ecclesiastical discipline and public worship, drawn up by the learned Dr. JABLONSKY, and some other papers of the same author, concerning the nature of episcopacy, and the manner of rendering it compatible with the interests of the sovereign, and the religious liberty of the people.
This publication, which is chiefly designed for the use of the Protestants in Prussia, is drawn from MS. memoirs of the life of Archbishop SHARP, who was principally concerned in the transactions and correspondence above-mentioned. These memoirs were composed from the Archbishop's journal by his son, the learned Dr. THOMAS SHARP, Archdeacon of Northumberland, and the historical account drawn from them, of the project for introducing episcopacy into Prussia, is published in a French translation, done by the Rev. Mr. Muysson, minister of the French chapel, at St. James's, &c.
The following note refers to Vol. II. p. 444, l. 23. Dr. Mosheim does not pretend to determine whether these reports relative to the barbarity of the Jews were true or false ; but it seems more than probable, that they were insidiously forged out of hatred against that unfortunate people. This will appear still more evidently to have been the case when we consider that in the xiiith century, the Popes GREGORY IX. and INNOCENT IV. published declarations, which were designed to destroy the effect of several calumnies that had been invented and dispersed to the disadvantage of the Jews ; and in the xivth century we find the Roman pontiffs BENEDICT XII. and CLEMENT VI. giving the same proofs of their equity towards an injured people. We find in history circular letters of the dukes of Milan and Venice, and imperial edicts of FREDERIC III. and CHARLES V. to the same purpose ; and all these circumstances render it highly credible, that the reports mentioned by Dr. MOSHEIM are not founded on sufficient evidence.
