Hercules Collins Reading List, part 2


Given the recent re-publication of Hercules CollinsOrthodox Catechism, there is some renewed interest in his writings and works. In this light, our friends at Particular Voices have published a small snippet from “The Temple Repaired” which contains Collins’ recommended reading list for “those inclined to the ministry“:

I’ve collected below links to locations where these works can be found today:

(This is part 2 of 2…)

  1. Erasmus Greek and Latin New Testament (Images HERE)
  2. John Tombes’ Works (and baptism catechism)
  3. Andrew Willet – Many commentaries and Synopsis papismi, or, a General view of the papacy (only volume 5 available)
  4. Ussher’s Body of Divinity ($10 at SGCB)
  5. Samuel Newman’s Large and Complete Concordance
  6. Francis Roberts‘ Mysterium & Medulla Bibliorum: The Mysterie and Marrow of the Bible, Viz. God’s Covenants with Man
  7. DuVeil’s Literal Explanation of the Acts
  8. Samuel Clark’s A Mirrour or Looking-glass both for Saints and Sinners, held forth in some thousands of examples
  9. Plutarch’s Morals
  10. Seneca’s Morals
  11. Pliny the Elder’s Natural History
  12. Eusebius’ Ecclesiastical History
  13. The Works of Josephus
  14. Peter Heylyn’s Cosmographie
  15. Robert Boyle’s Considerations Touching the Style of the Holy Scriptures
  16. Thomas Blunderville’s The Art of Logic
  17. Adam Smith’s Rhetoric
  18. Elisha Coles’ Latin Dictionary

Well, there’s the list…

I found at least author’s names and full titles to each work. Some authors were just too prolific to list each work here. Many of these, although not all, are presently available for free. With these links, you have at your fingertips a theological library that would be the envy of almost every 17th Century Puritan pastor.

Please feel free to send me your updates and I will continue to update the list.
