THE HISTORY

OF

THE CONFESSIONAL.

BY

JOHN HENRY HOPKINS, D.D.,

BISHOP OF THE DIOCESE OF VERMONT.

“At what doth the doctrine concerning Auricular Confession aim but that thereby the priests may have a mighty awe on the consciences of all people, mag dive into their secrets, may manage their lives as they please ?

“And what doth a like necessary particular absolution intend, but to set the priest in a lofty state of authority above the people, as a judge of each man's condition and dispenser of his salvation ?"-BARROW, Treatise on the Pope's Supremacy.
