Calderwood Translation on Easter

In light of Easter, I have translated a classic section from the Scottish presbyterian minister, David Calderwood, on this addition to God’s worship.

The observation of Easter was claimed to be indifferent by Scottish prelates (as it often is by many today), and had been around in Scotland since the Scottish Perth Assembly in 1618. In 1623, Calderwood laid out these propositions in Latin on indifferent things and ceremonies about God’s worship, which precisely delineate the Biblical and classical presbyterian view on the subject.

As such, these propositions are timeless. Calderwood exposits, defends and applies them at length in the fuller chapter in Latin. I hope they may be edifying to you.
