The Reign of Christ. Book Two. Chapter Six: Where Suitable Evangelists Are to Be Sought, and the Matter of the Reformation Of the Schools of Higher Learning

Your Majesty’s universities and their colleges must therefore be restored as soon as possible, and with thoroughgoing strictness, to their proper role as ordained by the Word of God. With respect to those who unworthily control them and thus seriously compromise the churches, the manner of procedure and the rendering of mercy must consist in this, that Your Majesty deny them every occasion of afflicting the churches of God with such great wrongs and bring it about that the interests of the churches will be taken care of by suitable ministers, so necessary for the eternal salvation of the faithful, rather than by the godless laziness and gluttony of those pretenders.
