Reformed Covenanter

Cancelled Commissioner
In context, George Gillespie is referring to Erastian magistrates who usurp the power of ecclesiastical officers in sacris as representing a new popedom. His comments, however, are worth keeping in mind in these days when there is much discussion concerning the new pope:

[…] though the Pope is changed, yet popedom remaineth still.
