Excerpt from Prayers for the Dead, for the Use of Members of the Church of England: With a Preface; To Which Are Added Meditations on the Four Last Things, With Instructions for Using Them, and Other Devotions

A witness in support of this view is found in the prevalence amongst all nations, in the most ancient times, of the rites of burial. There is the same sort of evidence that the universal custom of primitive times was to bury their dead out of their sight, that there is of the original worship of one God. And this custom is as undoubted a note of belief in the resurrection of the flesh, burning the body or yet worse departures from primitive practice of infidelity.
