OF PLAGUES, or
The just vindication of the Law of God, and no less just accusation and condemnation of the sin of man.SIN, The Plague of Plagues, was first published in 1669, four years after the Great Plague of London. The author wrote: "As to the sinfulness of sin, I have indeed handled it most fully, as it is against man's good and happiness."
Ralph Venning was born in Devonshire, England, in about 1621. He entered Emmanuel college, Cambridge, in 1643, and obtained his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in 1646 and 1650 respectively. After leaving Cambridge, he became lecturer at St. Olave's Church in Southwark where he remained until forced to leave in 1662 by the Act of Uniformity. He was able to continue his public ministry as co-pastor with Robert Bragge of an Indpendent congregation ata Pewterer's Hall, Lime Street. He died, still in his early fifties, in 1674 and was buried at Bunhill Fields in the presence of many nonconformists.
