DEDICATED TO ALL WHO PRAY THAT THE CHURCH MAY BE INSPIRED WITH THE SPIRIT OF

TRUTH, UNITY, AND CONCORD.

By the publication of the late Dean Burgon's interesting Memoir of Dr. Edward Hawkins, late Provost of Oriel, attention has been directed to the celebrated Sermon on “ The Use and Importance of Unauthoritative Tradition, as an introduction to the Christian Doctrines,” preached in the University Pulpit, May 31st, 1818.

As copies of the Sermon cannot now be obtained, it has been thought desirable to reprint the Dissertation, by the same Author, in which the argument in the Sermon is embodied and developed; and which, in Dean Burgon's opinion, “deserves the attention of every student of Sacred Science.”

It appears also to possess especial importance for all those who are conducting, or are interested in, Missions to the Heathen.

24th June, 1889.
