In 1692, Philippus van Limborch dedicated the volume of the Historia Inquisitionis to the Archbishop of Canterbury, John Tillotson:1

The book which I now publish, and my History of the Inquisition prefixed to it, appeared to me worthy of Your Grace’s Patronage, rather than any other Person’s living, when I considered the Subject treated of in both of them, and that high Station, which in these most difficult Times You support with the greatest Honour and universal Applause of all good Men, for the common Advantage of the Reformed Churches.2
