Description

Quoted from Lecky's History of European Morals, Chater V.

"This subject has recently been treated with very great learning and with admirable impartiality by an American author, Mr. Henry C. Lea, in his History of Sacerdotal Celibacy, which is certainly one of the most valuable works that America has produced. Since the great history of Dean Milman, I know no work in English which has thrown more light on the moral condition of the Middle Ages, and none which is more fitted to dispel the gross illusions concerning that period which positive writers and writers of a certain ecclesiastical school have conspired to sustain."

Quoted from the Quarterly Review:

"His chapter on the Anglican church is perhaps the most connected and most satisfactory account of our own Reformation, as to the question of celibacy or marriage, that could be found."
