Most known for his “Cosmographia,” Peter Heylin, or Heylyn, was a 17th-century English author who wrote numerous works on English politics and history. One of his lesser-known books was ‘The History of the Sabbath’. In this book, Heylyn describes the observance of the Sabbath through Catholic, Christian, and Jewish traditions. However, Heylyn explicitly displays his disdain for Puritans their traditional views of the day of rest. In fact, he proposes that the Sabbath

“was not instituted by Christ nor commanded by his apostles. It was ordained by no authority but that of the Church .” (Hunt)

 

Interestingly, this book is one of the earliest printed works to use the 4th-century colloquial phrase “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” Heylyn reiterated Saint Ambrose’s wisdom by clarifying that while in Milan, Ambrose observed the Sabbath on Saturday, “but when it Rome, he observed Sunday.” (Heylyn).
