A View Of Popish Abuses Yet Remaining In The English Church
A View of Popish Abuses was written by John Field in 1572, criticising the church services, priests and clergy of Elizabethan England, particularly the Elizabethan Religious Settlement. A Puritan clergyman, Field desired to change the Act of Uniformity 1558 in order to remove aspects of Roman Catholicism that he found unacceptable. A View of Popish Abuses was designed to sway public opinion towards his view.

If you let it alone, it will let you alone. But its instinct is hostile to all change in politics, literature, or social arts.”
