Consmsamc how necessary it is, that the word of God, which is the only food of the soul, and that most excellent light that we must walk by in this our most dangerous pilgrimage, should at all convenbnt times be preached unto the people, that thereby they may both learn their duty towards God, their prince, and their neighbours, according to the mind of the Holy Ghost, expressed in the scriptures; and also to avoid the manifold enormities which heretofore by false doctrine have crept into the church of God; and how that all they which are appointed ministers have not the gift of preaching suffi ciently to instruct the people which is committed unto them, whereof great inconveniences might rise and igno rance still be maintained, if some honest remedy be not speedily found and provided: the queens most excellent majesty, tendering the soul health of her loving sub jects, and the quieting of their consciences in the chief and principal points of Christian religion, and willing also by the true setting forth and pure declaring of Gods word, which is the principal guide and leader unto all godliness and virtue, to expel and drive away as well all corrupt, vicious, and ungodly living, as also erroneous and poisoned doctrines, tending to superstition and idolatry, hath by the advice of her most honourable counsellors, for her discharge in this behalf, caused a book of homi lies, which heretofore was set forth by her most loving brother, a prince of most worthy memory, Edward the sixth, to be printed anew, wherein are contained certain wholesome and godly exhortations, to move the people to honour and worship Almighty God, and diligently to serve him, every one according to their degree, state, and.

The Books of Homilies , , and are two books of thirty-three sermons developing the reformed doctrines of the Church of England in greater depth and detail than in the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion. During the reign of Edward VI and later during the reign of Elizabeth I , Thomas Cranmer and other English reformers saw the need for local congregations to be taught Christian theology and practice. Before the English Reformation , the liturgy was conducted entirely in Latin , to which the common people listened passively except twice a year during Communion, when only the consecrated bread was administered. Since parsons, vicars and curates often lacked the education and experience needed to write sermons and were often unfamiliar with Reformed doctrine, scholars and bishops wrote out a collection of sermons for them, which were appointed to be read each Sunday and holy day. Many of the sermons are straightforward exhortations to read scripture daily and lead a life of prayer and faith in Jesus Christ ; the other works are lengthy scholarly treatises intended to inform church leaders in theology, church history, the fall of the Byzantine Empire and the heresies of the Roman Catholic Church. Each homily is heavily annotated with references to holy scripture , the Church Fathers and other primary sources. The longest homily is the second of the second book, "On Peril of Idolatry".
