Excerpt from Specimen Pages of Printing Types From the Plimpton Press, Norwood, Mass
And therefore we are here to disown the theory that the organic form Of Chris tianity, as the Catholic Church holds it and has perpetuated it, is merely the development and outcome Of civil and secular institutions, amid which it originally found itself, any more than the Atonement on Calvary was the outcome Of the Platonic or Aristotelian philosophies. Points of resemblance, points Of contact, points of identity, even, we may own, here and there, it may be, in the one as in the others; but we are here to-day, if I at all understand the purpose Of our com ing, to affirm that yonder volume does not more truly declare to us the means Of our salvation than it declares and defines that one preeminent agency, the church OF the living god, with its inspired message.
