ART. 1.-FURTHER EVIDENCE ON THE

PETRINE CLAIMS. 1. Petri Privilegium: Three Pastoral Letters to the Clergy

of the Diocese of Westminster. By HENRY EDWARD

MANNING, D.D. (London, 1871.) 2. The See of S. Peter. By T. W. ALLIES. (London, 1850.) 3. The Evidence for the Papacy, as derived from the Holy

Scriptures and from Primitive Antiquity. By the Hon.

COLIN LINDSAY. (London, 1870.) 4. The Privilege of Peter and the Claims of the Roman Church

confronted with the Scriptures, the Councils, and the Testimony of the Popes themselves. By ROBERT C. JENKINS,

M.A. (London, 1875.) IN a previous number of this Review we sifted the Scriptural evidence for the ‘Privilege of Peter,' and compared it with the rules laid down by the Canon Law of the Roman Church for the attestation of all claims of this particular kind. The claim we then discussed was that raised on behalf of S. Peter, and of the Popes regarded as his successors; a claim altogether distinct from the question of any primacy inherent in the See and City of Rome, of which the ‘Popes' are Bishops. It is time now to enter on this next branch of the inquiry, and to ascertain whether Scripture yields any more satisfactory proof on behalf of the See, as distinguished from the Pope, of Rome.
