Romanism. 1st series. No. 264 Printed for the American Unitarian Association

By Bulfinch, S.G

Boston, MA: Wm. Crosby & H.P. Nichols, 1849. 12.5 x 20 cm. Little booklet sets out to educate its Protestant readers about the Roman Catholic faith,which is growing in the United States because of all the Irishmen and others flooding into the country, so that our servants and those who work for us often may be Catholics. While booklet sets out to ""educate"", it quickly turns to suspicion and distrust, and even discounts the Roman concept of transubstantiation of flesh and blood of Christ. ""The Romish Church is an institution of past times."" How to combat the ""growing evil... of Roman Catholic influence?"" Answer: ""By fair, manly , courteous Christian controversy. Learning and talent, truth and zeal, -- let these be the weapons of Protestant warfare."" Paper booklet, bound by a stitch, minor soiling, some pages unopened. Good. . Catalogs: Religious/Anti-Catholic.

Boston, MA: Christian Register Association, 1873. 54 x 70 cm. Tongue-in-cheek commentary on recent meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science (an astonishing mental display) in Bradford, the Worsted Capital, England. ""Trinitarian Formulas Translated into the Vernacular"" by Bishop Ferrette. Trinitarian churches of Western Europe are drifting from Trinitarianism proper, which was substantially Unitarianism, into pure and simple Tritheism. ""The Positiveness and Earnestness of Theodore Parker's Christian Theism"". Editorial makes case for a separate prison for women. Editorial remarks that the new publication ""Index"" has been attacked by a private letter criticizing an acknowledgement to Almighty God in the new Constitution of Michigan; editor seems to enjoy the alarm of the Index, and the issue of separation of Church and State. Writing in this newspaper is as tart and alert, educated with a good sense of humor, that one can observe even after all these years. Newspaper, small holes in folds, good. .

""Papal Infallibility""--""The declaration of the infallibility of the Bishop of Rome is the desparate attempt of men alarmed by the terrible doubts and denials of the age to provide a sure refuge for those who would believe."" ""Revivalists"" --H.W. Beecher in his Yale Lectures delivers a blistering picture of these men with immense bellies and immense chests and big under-heads....""I do not believe you could preach to the boatmen and gamblers of Arkansas, and to all the riffraff of the community, those who really live down in the cellar of their heads, unless you brought the motive of fear to bear upon them."" Writing in this newspaper is as tart and alert, educated with a good sense of humor, that one can observe even after all these years. Newspaper, small holes in folds, good. .
