One of the Parker Society sobjects, as stated in the first of its Laws, is the printing, as may appear desirable, of some of the Early English translations of the Foreign Reformers. A ccordingly, the re-publishing of the English Version of the Decades of Bulhnger was announced, as in the contemplation of the Council of the Society, in a List which was appended to the Second Annual Report; and the first volume is now, at length, presented to the subscribers. The edition, which is here reprinted, is that of 1587, which scarcely differs at all, in any material respects, from the former edition of 1584, and very httle from that of 1577 ;but any important variations between the translation and the original Latin are carefully specified in the notes. The Version was made, as stated in the title-page, by H. I. Student in Divinitie, a person, according to Strype stestimony, of eminency in the Church These Decades, it is conceived, possess a peculiar claim on the regard of the members of the Church of England. For not only was Bulhnger well-deserving of this nation for his kind entertainment and harbour of our divines and scholars that fled abroad in Queen Mary sreign, and of note for that friendship and correspondence ever after maintained between him and them; but several of his writings, as they became known hero, were eminently appreciated by our theologians and religious persons of the era of the Reformation. 1S trj7)e, A nn. book ii. chap. 10, p. 145, Vol. ii. part 2. ed.
