The pulpit-Lunaticks [electronic resource] : or a mad answer to the Mad Report, Made by a Committee of Mad Priests, against Benjamin, Lord Bishop of Bangor. Being A Mad Venture of Neck or Nothing to save the Church, By that Mad Author, who ran the same Hazard to save the State. The whole Satyr Consisting of nothing but Mad Reflections upon the Mad Steps that were lately taken by the Lower House of Convocation, (now most deservedly call'd The New Bedlam) in charging this Right Reverend Father in God with Dangerous Positions and Doctrines, in his Preservative and Sermon, Preach'd March 31. 1717, and contains A Secret History of the Raving Fits of the Pulpit-Lunaticks (or Convocation-Madmen) for above a Thousand Years, but more especially from Arch-Bishop Lauds High-Church Phrenzy down to their late Prorogation with A Distinct and Mad Character of the Atheism, Pride, Heresies and Treason of all those Dignify'd clergymen that have occasion'd the present Distraction both in Church and State. Also, A Mad Speech to the Convocation fairly proving (by Persons of undoubted Credit) that Bangor is now the Word, for a true Lover of King George, and the Protestant Succession in his Illustrious House; and Committee-Priest, of one that attempts to restore a Topish Pretender, by raising New Divisions amongst his Majesty's Subjects when the Old ones were almost heal'd. Being A Seasonable (tho' Mad) Alarm to the whole Nation, most humbly Inscrib'd to that Bright Ornament of the Church of England, Benjamin, Lord Bishop of Bangor, By the Madman that's Author of this Lunacy. .
