The Works of William Perkins


Fidei vita vera vita - The true life is the life of faith

This web site is dedicated to the promotion of the works of one of the greatest of the English Puritans, William Perkins of Cambridge (1558- 1602).

Perkins was known as "The Calvin of England", and his works went through many editions and were translated into many European languages; yet they have never been fully reprinted in full in English since 1635. 

"I have heard him speak of his learning Mr Perkin's Six Principles when he was very young"   - Matthew Henry on his father Philip (Life of Rev. Philip Henry p.3)
