Hampton-Court Conference

A conference appointed by James I. at Hampton-Court, in 1603, in order to settle the disputes between the church and the Puritans. Nine bishops, and as many dignitaries of the church, appeared on one side, and four Puritan ministers on the other. It lasted for three days.

The proposals and remonstrances of the Puritans may be seen in Neale's History of the Puritans, chap. 1: part 2:
