“Procession at Westminister Abbey,” Canaletto, (1749)

1647 – The Assembly of Divines at Westminster in London, England order John Biddle’s Two-fold Catechism to be burned by the common hangman (signifying that its publication was a criminal offense) and also ordered the Committee of Plundered Ministers to examine Biddle. Biddle was a thorough Unitarian and a fine Biblical scholar. His books offended mainline Christians, who found Unitarian ideas blasphemous and treasonous.
