A rare piece of 17th-century anti-Presbyterian propaganda by Henry Janson. This book, ‘Philanax Anglicus’ primarily deals with exposing the Presbyterian faith for its flaws and creating clear reminders of acceptable behaviors of a Protestant. The author of the preface provides a clear purpose:

“[this book] is as properly applicable to all sorts of Christian people, who out to take it for a Warning Piece, to arm themselves against that most horrid cheat of Presbytery. The Ministers of the Presbyterian Religion represent the true Church of Christ to be a Monster, composed of all sorts of abomination”

 

This work also deals with how religion and government should be paired – that the King and Pope both have powers over their subjects and the realm in which they have been given authority. Janson states clearly that the King is the highest power and cannot be considered a traitor.

“No king can be a traitor, nor Pope excommunicated. There can be no judge above the king.”

JANSON, Henry Sir

 

Philanax Anglicus, or, A Christian caveat for all kings, princes & prelates : how they entrust a sort of pretended Protestants of integrity, or suffer them to commix with their respective governments : shewing plainly from the principles of all their predecessors, that it is impossible to be at the same time Presbyterians, and not rebels : with a compendious draught of their portraictures and petigree done to the life, by their own doctors dead hands, perfectly delineating their birth, breeding, bloody practices, and prodigious theorems against monarchy

 

London : printed for Theo Sadler, 1663.
