This is a text by English lawyer Nicholas Fuller, published in the year 1607. The writings detail the legal case of Thomas Lad and Richard Maunsell vs. the Ecclesiastical Commissioners who charged the men with refusing to take the ex officio oath. Fuller sets out to prove, through this text, that the Ecclesiastical Commissioners do not have the power to imprison individuals, as they did with Lad and Maunsell. Fuller makes five points in his argument to prove stance.
