Additional Material
Print Editions / WitnessesThe sermon was printed in 1635, according to the Bodleian cataloguer. It seems, however, that it was printed in Three Sermons Preached ... by Dr Richard Stuart ..., to which is added A fourth Sermon ... by ... Samuel Harsnett (London, 1656). See Millar Maclure, The Paul's Cross Sermons (Toronto, 1958), pp. 215-16.

Other NoteAccording to Torrance Kirby, ed. Paul's Cross and the Culture of Persuasion in England, 1520-1640 (Leiden: Brill, 2014), p. 453, this sermon has been misdated in the Bodleian catalogue. The correct year was 1584. The ODNB article on Harsnett gives the year as "probably" 1585, but 1584 seems correct.
