A Vindication of the Result of the Late Mutual Council Convened in Princeton
Lulu Enterprises Incorporated, 2005 - 87 pages
A Vindication of the Results of the late Mutual Council convened in Princeton, is a systematic treatise that resulted in the calling of the Rev. Samuel Clark to the local church at Princeton. Until the modern age of the 20th century church clergy were not often elected by the local church, instead, they were often appointed by a Town Council who would not only elect a pastor for the church without the inclusion of the local church, but would write their covenant and ask the church to ratify it when assembled in church meeting. This book, written by one of the Town Council members who voted to call a new minister, lays out the complete scenario and discussion of the calling of Rev. Samuel Clark to the local church at Princeton. Included in this little book are the towns-minutes and the churches' discussion along with the votes cast by each. A crucial book in understanding the function between Church and State even after the Second Great Awakening in America.
