About This Item

London: Printed for Richard Chiswell at the Rose and Crown in St. Paul's Church-Yard, , 1681. . 8vo, 18th century marbled boards leather spine and tips,worn; skillfully rebacked with the original spine laid down. Armorial bookplate of Ralph William Grey on the front pastedown. This is the Appendix to Burnet's "The history of the rights of princes in the disposing of ecclesiastical benefices and church-lands..."but is often found separately. Text is in French apart from English title page and the translation of two of the letters. During the vacancy of an archbishopric or bishopric the French kings claimed the right 910 to receive all the revenues of the diocese, (2) to appoint to all benefices vacant during the interval, (3) to send royal officers to administer the temporalities of the see. These three rights collectively called the rŽgale, were first formulated in the testament drawn up by Louis IX (1214Ð1270) before his departure on a crusade. In the reign of Louis XIV it was determined to extend the system of the rŽgale to the provinces recently added to France. This gave rise to a vigorous struggle on the part of the bishops in the annexed provinces, and their cause was supported by the pope. To coerce the papacy, Louis obtained from the national synod of the clergy in 1682 a declaration practical independence of the Gallican church. This was approved by the pope and was in force from 1682 to the Civil Constitution of the Clergy (1790) during the French Revolution.
