The tryal of spirits both in teachers & hearers. Wherein is held forth the clear discovery, and certain downfal of the carnal and antichristian clergie of these nations. Testified from the Word of God to the university-congregation in Cambridge. By William Dell. Whereunto is added a plain and necessary confutation of divers errors delivered by Mr Sydrach Simpson in a sermon preached to the same congregation the last commencement there, anno 1653. Wherein (among other things) is declared. That the universities (according to their present statutes and practices) are not answerable to the schools of the prophets in the time of the law; but to the idolatrous high places. And, that humane learning is not a preparation appointed by Christ, either for the right understanding or right teaching the Gospel. With a brief testimony against divinity-degrees in the universities. As also, Luthers testimony at large upon the whole matter. And lastly, the right reformation of learning, schools, and universities, according to the state of the Gospel, and the light that shines therein. All necessary for the instruction and direction of the faithful in these last times.
