Footnotes

  • Scarce treatise on angels "crammed with recondite learning, it was an attempt to expound the subtleties of Thomist angelology to the man in the English pulpit" (ODNB). This copy does not have the dedication to King James "whom Salkeld praised as the angel who had rescued him from the dungeon of popery and enlightened him by the beams of his reasoning".
