This work, which was written as a reply to Richard Hart's "Parish churches turn’d into conventicles, by serving God therein, and worshiping him otherwise then according to the established liturgy and practice of the Church of England." has been attributed to the English Non-Conformist church leader John Owen (1616-1683). Owen was not only an academic and adminstrator at Oxford University but was also involved in affairs of state. He sat in the first Protectorate Parliament (1654) and was part of the committee set up to settle the "fundamentals" necessary for the toleration promised in the Instrument of Government.
