    • Convocation Book of 1606; the government of the Catholic Church and the Kingdoms of the World (1606)

    "...the Convocation of the Church of England (then in session) in 1606 had drafted one of the most important documents in Anglican history: the Convocation Book of 1606. In this book, the Church had set out the nature of the Civil and Ecclesiastical governments, their origins, and their respective functions. Led by the Prolocutor John Overall, Dean of St. Paul’s and later the lord bishop of Norwich, the Convocation through a high level of scholarship and exegesis carefully delineated the Civil institutions, and God’s Church, as described on the pages of the Old and New Testaments."
