The Cambridge History of English and American Literature in 18 Volumes (1907–21).
Volume VII. Cavalier and Puritan.

VI. Caroline Divines.

§ 20. William Juxon; William Sancroft.


Such is what one finds expressed very clearly, very pointedly, very emphatically, in the writings of Charles I’s chief religious adviser. Two of those who may be regarded as Laud’s disciples reflect his thoughts and his manner—William Juxon and William Sancroft. The former published but one or two sermons, of no particular merit save that of consistent Anglicanism. The latter did not issue his attack on Calvinism till just before the restoration (1658), and belongs, from a literary point of view, entirely to the later Caroline age; yet he must be just mentioned here because all that he wrote shows Laud’s influence, and it was he chiefly who sought to preserve the archbishop’s memory by the faithful publication of his literary remains—the little Diary and the long, weary, but indomitable, record of his Troubles and Tryal.   32
