A rare first edition not a reprint. Blue cover with gilt print and design on front cover. Spine has chips and corners show wear. Contents clean. Former owner penciled name in front dated 1893. "The advance of ritualism became intensely controversial in the Episcopal Church. Some opponents of ritualism believed the changes were introducing Roman Catholic practices and beliefs into a Protestant Church. Evangelicals were often strong and vocal opponents of ritualism... This dispute eventually led to a canon passed by the 1856 General Convention requiring a bishop to visit every parish in the bishop's jurisdiction at least once every three years. The controversy over ritualism led John Henry Hopkins, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, to publish The Law of Ritualism(1866). Hopkins urged that a wide variety of ritual uses were canonically permitted in the Episcopal Church. He predicted that many of the controverted practices would eventually be accepted." ; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 98 pages
