Quoted from Pseudo-Martyr 13. 34.

Donne is therefore not inconsistent in a Lincoln’s Inn sermon, when in an antiRoman passage he counsels, “Let none divorce himself from that religion . . which he embraced in his Baptism” (3:129). 36. One may also compare Donne’s attitude toward other English Roman Catholics, such as in his preaching against recusancy to Queen Anne of Denmark (see McCullough) and his somewhat daring allusion in a sermon to King Charles to the religion of his queen (7:409).
