Responsoria ad erratica piscatoris. Or, A caveat for old and new prophanenesse. By way of reply to two over-confident pamphlets; the one called a Caveat for old and new sabbatarians, published by Edward Fisher, Esq. The other called Festorum Metropolis, published by an unknowne author. In which answer, the severall opinions of Epiphanius, Syslyga, Beroaldus, Scaliger, Sethus Calvisius, &c. for the day of Christs birth, are propounded and examined, and it is fully proved, that the direct day cannot be determined. The question also, concerning the observation of Christmas-day, is debated, and it is fully proved, that it is not (as Mr Fisher and others, falsly say) grounded on scripture, ...Telesphorus, Theophilus, Cyprian, is found false and spurious, ... The power of magistrates and churches in constituting holy-dayes ... Dr Hammond's more sober vindication of the day, and his late defence of it in his resolution of the six queries, is (in a short appendix) examined, and found insufficient. By John Collinges Master of Arts, and preacher of the gospel in Norwich.
