Example text

McGrade takes up the thread with his exploration of Book VII where Hooker carefully extends his argument for the necessity of an episcopal hierarchy and for its legitimacy in holding governmental functions within both church and commonwealth, while arguing also that the institution of episcopacy is based upon the consent of the church. In the succeeding chapter Daniel Eppley focuses on the arguments employed by Hooker in Book VIII of the Lawes to defend the institution of ‘Royal Supremacy’ over the English Church.
