but that which really obstructs the progress of truth. Discipline will then promote, in an eminent degree, that love of our neighbour, which is the mark of discipleship, and without which a profession of love to God, and to his cause, is a vain pretence: “He," said the beloved disciple, 66 that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen ? And this commandment have we from him, that he who loveth God, love his brother also."
11 John iv, 20, 21.
The following Tables have been compiled with much attention and pains from the best authors; and it is therefore hoped that they will be considered as a useful addition to Dr. Mosheim's work; and the more so; as they are not confined to the persons and things contained in it.
The dates, that are placed in the columns which contain the Sovereign Princes and Popes, are designed to mark the year of their decease.
As several of the Ecclesiastical and Theological Writers, mentioned in these tables, deserve a place also among Profane Authors, on account of their Philosophical, Literary, or Historical Productions; so their names will be repeated in the two distinct columns that contain the learned men of each century.
It is further to be observed, that the Romish Church, even long before the time of the Reformation, looked upon many persons as Heretics, whom we, on our principles, cannot consider in the same light, and whose doctrines really tended to promote that Reformation in which we glory. I have, therefore, in many places, added the words real or reputed after Heretics, rather than seem to submit to the decisions of a superstitious Church in this matter.
