A67636 The resurrection of loyalty and obedience, out of the grave of rebellion by the sacred force of the oathes of supremacy and allegiance, which have lain as dead, and out of minde, for diverse years, and here raised up out of the dust, and discovered in their great inviolable force and power unto the people : for the humbling of those that are guilty of the breach of them, the quelling of rebellious principles, and excitement unto the duties of obedience and subjection, according to the tenor of the said oathes. Warmstry, Thomas, 1610-1665. 1660 (1660) Wing W890; ESTC R38492 13,854 26
