“What is it which all men especially desire? Eternal life and happiness?” ­

– James Ussher, Body of Divinity

 

James Ussher was an early 17th-century Archbishop in the Church of Ireland who is most remembered for giving an exact date to the beginning of creation. His full body of work includes letters, sermons, dissertations, and exegeticals, but this work focuses solely on improving the Christians life and strengthening their faith.

 

Ussher’s most important and impactful work was ‘Britannicarum Ecclesiarum Antiquitates’ – a work of the history of the church in Great Britain. While this work does include many before unpublished manuscripts, it also includes a rather curious section on the legend of King Lucius – the king thought to have introduced Christianity to Britain in the 2nd century.
