Richard Hooker, a 16th-century English priest, was one of the most prominent and influential theologians that Anglicanism has seen.

“Hooker remains one of the greatest theologians that the English Church has ever possessed; and he conveyed his beliefs in a masterly English prose.”

F.L. Cross: Oxford Dict. of the Christian Church

 

In fact, theological reforms would eventually come to be called ‘Anglicanism,’ a term that wasn’t used during his lifetime. He is remembered today for opposing the Puritan extremism, which is evidenced in his two major works – ‘Learned Discourse of Justification’ and ‘Of the Lawes of Ecclesiastical Politie.’

 

Per Lowndes, this first edition is “folio, with a frontispiece by Faithorne, containing Hooker’s portrait.”
