Institutes of Polity, Civil and Ecclesiastical

It is right that all Christian men righteously hold their Christianity, and lead that life which is befitting them, according to God’s law, and according to worldly conventions, and diligently order all their ways by those things which they direct, who are able wisely and prudently to direct them; and this then is firsts of counsels foremost; that every man, above all other things, love one God, and steadfastly have one belief in him who first made us all, and with a dear price afterwards bought us. And also we have need earnestly to consider, how we may always most righteously hold God’s own commandments, and perform all that which we promised, when we received baptism, or those who at our baptism were our sponsors.

By Wulfstan II
