الصفحة 28 - I deny not but certain and known idolatry, or any other sort of practical impiety with its principiant doctrine, may be punished corporally, because it is no other but matter of fact ; but no matter of mere opinion, no errors that of themselves are not sins, are to be persecuted or punished by death or corporal inflictions. This is now to be proved. 3. Secondly : all the former discourse is sufficient argument, how easy it is for us in such matters to be deceived.
