(p.101) 5 Philagathus: Godly Living
The Plain Man's Pathways to Heaven


Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on godly living. Theologus advises those who wish to follow Christ to ‘Keep company with the godly, and avoid the society of the wicked’. This was the conventional counsel of godly preachers. The godly knew how to distinguish between ‘us’ and ‘them’. Those who took communion with Master Luddington in 1585 were ‘rotten members and rotten sheep’, thought William Leyden of Hempsted, Essex, and in 1587 Robert Hamon of Bobbingworth declared that Master Glascock ‘is a blind guide, and all that follow him shall go to the devil’.

Keywords:   preachers, Theologus, Master Luddington, godly living, Master Glascock
