A compleat view of episcopacy, as exhibited from the fathers of the Christian church, until the close of the second century : containing an impartial account of them, of their writings, and of what they say concerning bishops and presbyters; with observations, and remarks, tending to shew, that they esteemed these one and the same order of ecclesiastical officers. In answer to those, who have represented it as a certain fact, universally handed down, even from the apostles days, that governing and ordaining authority was exercised by such bishops only, as were of an order superior to presbyters
