This work had the unique honor paid to it of being commended to the Universal Episcopate in an Encyclical signed by the Rt. Rev. Dr. Littlejohn, Bishop of Long Island, the Rt. Rev. Dr. Seymour, Bishop of Springfield, and the Rt. Rev. Dr. Coleman, Bishop of Delaware.

The Great War, when it ends, will bring the world face to face with many problems calling for a solution. The most insistent of these problems will be the religious ones.

From writers from every front, we hear that religious experiences never pressed the consciences of the soldiers as they have in this war.

Prejudices begotten of ignorance have melted away. English soldiers seeing roadside crosses in France are asking for their re-erection in the lanes and byways of England. When the war is over the men now at the front will be asking for the reasons of a divided Christendom. Should the Allies win, the fate of Austria will be in the balance. Austria is now the only Papal country in Europe. The claims of the Pope will call for more careful examination than ever.

Dr. Lowndes' great work is acknowledged to be the most convincing and scholarly presentation of the Anglican side of the controversy between Rome and ourselves on the question of Anglican Orders.

Another great value of the Vindication is that it is known and highly valued by Eastern Theologians, as is shown by Archbishop Nicolai's commendation, as also by the fact that in the semi-official pamphlet on "the Validity of Anglican Orders from the Orthodox Standpoint," by Professor Androutsos, it is extensively quoted.
