The Hind and the Panther

Two years after the publication of Threnodia Augustalis, Dryden would publish what literary critics consider his major Catholic work, the allegoric poem The Hind and the Panther 1687. No gainful office gives him the pretence To grind the subject, or defraud the prince. Yet often quoted Canon-laws, and Code, And Fathers which he never understood; But little learning needs in noble blood. In Eastern Orthodoxy in general, the Mystery of the Eucharist is more commonly discussed using alternative terms such as trans-elementation, re-ordination, or simply change. Of these a slaughtered army lay in bloud, Extended o'er the Caledonian wood, Their native walk; whose vocal bloud arose, And cry'd for pardon on their perjur'd foes; Their fate was fruitfull, and the sanguin seed Endu'd with souls, increas'd the sacred breed.

This heard, the matron was not slow to find What sort of malady had seized her mind: Disdain, with gnawing envy, fell despite, 70 And canker'd malice stood in open sight: Ambition, interest, pride without control, And jealousy, the jaundice of the soul; Revenge, the bloody minister of ill, With all the lean tormentors of the will. Shall she command who has herself rebell'd? If then, by able heads, are understood Your brother prophets, who reformed abroad; Those able heads expound a wiser way, That their own sheep their shepherd should obey. Is he from heaven, this mighty champion, come? Sternly the savage did her answer mark, Her glowing eye-balls glittering in the dark, And said but this: Since lucre was your trade, Succeeding times such dreadful gaps have made, 'Tis dangerous climbing: to your sons and you I leave the ladder, and its omen too. The dire effects appeared in open sight, Which from the cause he calls a distant flight, And yet no larger leap than from the sun to light. During the ensuing year Tonson continued to bring out pieces by Dryden, Drydens translation of Virgil, executed between 1693 and 1696, was published by Tonson in July 1697 by subscription. Busby had first prayed for the King and then locked in his schoolboys to prevent their attending the spectacle, in 1650 Dryden went up to Trinity College, Cambridge. His grace in both is equal in extent; The first affords us life, the second nourishment.

Other Christian groups, like Baptists, who practice believers baptism but have different roots, are not seen as Anabaptist. Can they, who say the Host should be descry’d By sense, define a body glorify’d? The first great leader of the Whigs was Robert Walpole, who maintained control of the government through the period 1721—1742, his protégé was Henry Pelham, who led from 1743 to 1754. Thus men ungodded may to places rise, And sects may be preferr'd without disguise: No danger to the Church or State from these; The Papist only has his writ of ease. Though unpolluted yet with actual ill, She half commits, who sins but in her will. That fi'ry Zuynglius first th' affection bred, And meagre Calvin blest the nuptial bed. Between the 1680s and 1850s, they contested power with their rivals, the Whigs origin lay in constitutional monarchism and opposition to absolute monarchy.

The hind represents the Catholic Church while the panther is the Anglican Church. Nor can the usurper long abstain from food; Already he has tasted Pigeon's blood, And may be tempted to his former fare, When this indulgent lord shall late to heaven repair. Man onely of a softer mould is made; Not for his fellows ruine, but their aid. A later archbishop, the Greek Theodore of Tarsus, also contributed to the organisation of Christianity in England, the Church of England has been in continuous existence since the days of St Augustine, with the Archbishop of Canterbury as its episcopal head.

Yet had she oft been chas’d with horns and hounds And Scythian shafts; and many winged wounds Aim’d at her Heart; was often forc’d to fly, And doom’d to death, though fated not to dy. For petty royalties you raise debate; But this unfailing universal state You shun; nor dare succeed to such a glorious weight; And for that cause those promises detest, With which our Saviour did his Church invest; But strive to evade, and fear to find them true, As conscious they were never meant to you; All which the Mother-Church asserts her own, And with unrivalled claim ascends the throne. I freely grant you spoke to save your life; For then you lay beneath the butcher's knife. More haughty than the rest, the wolfish race, Appears with belly Gaunt, and famish'd face: Never was so deform'd a beast of Grace.

They ask you blessing but for what you have, But, once possessed of what with care you save, The wanton boys would piss upon your grave. Their rage repress'd, though pinched with famine sore, They stand aloof, and tremble at his roar; Much is their hunger, but their fear is more. What ills in Church and State have you redress'd! That Conscience, which to all their crimes was mute, Now calls aloud, and cries to persecute: No rigour of the laws to be released, And much the less, because it was their Lord's request: They thought it great their Sovereign to control, 1220 And named their pride, nobility of soul.

Why chuse we then like Bilanders to creep Along the coast, and land in view to keep, When safely we may launch into the deep? All would be happy at the cheapest rate. The next Parliament first met in March, at Oxford, but Charles dissolved it only after a few days, when he made an appeal to the country against the Whigs, and determined to rule without Parliament. But when the imperial owner did espy, That thus they turn'd his grace to villany, 1230 Not suffering wrath to discompose his mind, He strove a temper for the extremes to find, So to be just, as he might still be kind; Then, all maturely weigh'd, pronounced a doom Of sacred strength for every age to come. It is evident that some part of it was only occasional, and not first intended: I mean that defence of myself, to which every honest man is bound, when he is injuriously attacked in print; and I refer myself to the judgment of those who have read the Answer to the Defence of the late King's Papers, and that of the Duchess in which last I was concerned , how charitably I have been represented there. ’Tis not for any Private Man to Censure the Proceedings of a Foreign Prince; but without suspicion of Flattery I may praise our own, who has taken contrary Measures, and those more suitable to the Spirit of Christianity. The labour'd earth your pains have sow'd and till'd; 100 'Tis just you reap the product of the field: Yours be the harvest, 'tis the beggar's gain To glean the fallings of the loaded wain.

The Hind and the Panther Summary

More pow'rfull, and as vigilant as they, The Lyon awfully forbids the prey. Oh let their crime in long oblivion sleep; 'Twas theirs indeed to make, 'tis yours to keep! But when, by long experience, you had proved, How far he could forgive, how well he loved; A goodness that excelled his godlike race, And only short of heaven's unbounded grace; A flood of mercy that o'erflowed our isle, Calm in the rise, and fruitful as the Nile, Forgetting whence your Egypt was supplied, You thought your sovereign bound to send the tide; Nor upward looked on that immortal spring, But vainly deemed, he durst not be a king. Unkind already, and estrang'd in part, The Wolfe begins to share her wandring heart. Wrong conscience, or no conscience, may deserve To thrive, but ours alone is privileged to starve. It then remains, that Church can only be The guide, which owns unfailing certainty; Or else you slip your hold, and change your side, Relapsing from a necessary guide. The Apostolic Constitutions says, Let the bishop give the oblation, saying, The body of Christ, and let him that receiveth say, Amen.

Now first printed in full from the manuscripts belonging to Mr. But since the apostles could not be confined To these, or those, but severally designed Their large commission round the world to blow, To spread their faith, they spread their labours too. Howe'er you take it now, the common cry Then ran you down for your rank loyalty. And after that trust my imperfect sense, Which calls in question His Omnipotence? One would have thought it some Egyptian piece, With garden-gods, and barking deities, More thick than Ptolemy has stuck the skies.
