About this Item

John Reeve (1608?58) and his cousin Lodowick Muggleton (1609?98) were the founders of the Muggletonians, a small Christian sect that denied the doctrine of the Trinity, believed that God would no longer interfere in human affairs after the revelation of their founders, and condemned prayer and preaching. In this piece Reeve argues for his view of the passion of Christ, and explains how God suffered in it. Appended is a short essay by Muggleton, explaining his view of the fall and of the mortality of the soul. The text of the lacking pp. 7?8 is supplied on three leaves in manuscript in a pretty and clear 18th-century hand.
