Comments

A dialogue between Theodidactus and Philalethes in which they debate the merits of the church's oath of allegiance. Traditionally attributed to theologian and educator Richard Mocket (1577-1618), the dialogue was originally inspired by King James' proclamation of November 8, 1615, and it remained an authoritative summary of the church's political theology into the 18th century. Two small oval stamps of the Presbyterian Carmarthen College.
