Jeremy Taylor against the Ritualists

We have ... a holy Liturgy, excellent Prayers, perfect Sacraments ...

You are gone from a Church whose worshipping is simple, Christian and Apostolical, to a Church where Mens consciences are loaden with a burden of Ceremonies greater than that in the days of the Jewish Religion (for the Ceremonial of the Church of Rome is a great Book in Folio) greater I say than all the Ceremonies of the Jews contained in Leviticus.

From Jeremy Taylor's 'A Copy of a Letter Written to a Gentlewoman Newly Seduced to the Church of Rome'.
