We have therefore, upon mature deliberation, and with the advice of fo many of our Bishops as might conveniently be called together, thought fit to make this Declaration following:
That the Articles of the Church of England (which have been allowed and authorized beretofore, and which Our Clergy generally have fubfcribed unto) do contain the true Doctrine of the Church of England, agreeable to Gods Word: which We do therefore ratify and confirm, requiring all Our loving Subjects to continue in the uniform profeffion thereof, and prohibiting the least difference from the faid Articles, which to that end We command to be new printed, and this Our Declaration to be published therewith.
That We are Supreme Governor of the Church of England: And that if any difference arife about the external policy concerning Injunctions, Canons, and other Conftitutions whatsoever thereto belonging, the Clergy in their Convocation is to crder and fettle them, having first cbtained leave under Our Bread Seal fo to do: and We approving their faid Ordinances and Conflitutions; provid
