Daily Courant (Newspaper) - June 26, 1730, London, Middlesex The Daily Coufant* Friday, June 26, 1730. Continuation of the Petition of the Faculty of Divinity at Paris, againft fome Proceedings cftbe Parliament there ; begun in the Cou-ranc of Wednelday laft. T H E Faculty wifh they could " forbear taking Notice, that " every Difpolicion of that Arret " ("of Parliament, cited in the " laft Paragraph of this Petition infer ted on *J Wednefday) is a fort of Brand put upon " the whole Body of the Faculty, as if they " were to be fufpected of Negligence, and " even of Prevarication, in Matters of fo " great Importance : A Sufpicion fo much *' the more grating to them, becaufe it feems " authorized in fome meafure by a venerable " Body of Men who have always honoured " the Faculty with a particular Confidence, " and fo often borne Witnefs of the Zeal of " the Faculty to preferve the ancient Do&rine *J of the Kingdom. " If the Thefts in queftion be examined even " with the greateft Rigour, nothing will ap-" pear therein, which is any ways inconfiftent ** with that Doctrine; but on the contrary, " it wi/1 be found to contain the moft efTen-'* tial Principles of all the Points that have *' any Relation to the Subject of the Thefts. " There they may fee the fame Doctrine that " the Faculty has always taught, and of " which they drew up Articles in 1663, ** which Lewis XIV. your Anguft Great Grandfather authorized by a Declaration, " wherein he honours the Faculty with the " higheft Commendation. " There are feen, in feveral Places of that " Thefts, and particularly in the Texts re-" ferr'd to in the Margin, 1. "A continual Attention not to feparate " the Pope from the Body of Paftors, in *' what concerns the Infallibility. z. " The NecefEty of General Councils " in fome Cafes, expretfy acknowledg'd by " the Author. 3. " The Determination of thofe Cafes " by the Authority of the Church, atrribu-*' ted to the Pope or to the Body of Bi-" fhops. 4. " The Maxims of France, concerning " the Canonical Judgments pafs'd upon Bi-'* Ihops accufed, openly maintain'd. Laftly, no body can be ignorant of the u Conformity of tbefe Sentiments with the " Doctrine of the Kingdom, and their Op-pofition to contrary Opinions. " With what Juftice could a Thefts', which " bears thefe Characters, be reprefented as " an Object: of Scandal and Contempt, or " deferve to be ftigmatiz'd, and guarded *r againft by Precautions fo mortifying for " the Faculty, as thofe contain'd in the Aftet *' of Parliament? " Is it for what the Author has faid concerning the XCf. Propofition, condemn'd by the Bui! Vnigenittu ? But was he in the wrong to-afiert that that Proportion " was juftly condemn'd, becaufe it is univer-fal, and becaufe the Author of Moral Reflexionshas made an ill Ufe of it? If it be fo, that Miftake is common to him with tt the Bifhops of France, who have all declared, that the Propofition deferved Cen-fure, were it only for its being fo general, and making no Difference between Duties grounded upon a Pofitive Law only, and thofe founded upon the Laws of God and Nature ; and becaufe of the ill Ufe the Author has made of it, to maintain the Errors which have lo many Years difturb'd the Church of France. *' Far from differing in Sentiments with, the Bifhops of France, about the XCf. Propofition, the Faculty have always been peffuaded, as well as they, that they could not be too careful to prevent the bad C^n-fequences that evil-minded Men might perhaps endeavour malicioufly to draw from the Cenfure of that Propofition. They have applauded the Zeal of the Parliaments of the Kingdom, and heartily adber'd to the wife Precautions they took upon that Occafion; but in Conformity to the conftant Principles of the Divines and Canonists, they have always jook'd upon the Cenfures made ufe of by the Ecclefiaftical Authority, that ftrike at the Obedience due from Subjects to their Sovereign, to be not only unjuft, bur evidently null and void. After this manner have they always explain'd thetn-felves, as appears by, a great Number of Thefts maintain'd without Interruption, and even very lately in one of the 20th of May laft, fign'd by rbe Syndick. printed and publifhed fome Days before the Arret of Parliament, which is the Subject of the of the Faculty's Complaint, tho' it was not maintain'd till after that Arret.
