Meric Casaubon, (1599-1671), had published a response prior to Stillingfleet:
Of the necessity of reformation, in, and before Luther’s time; and what (visibly) hath most hindred the progress of it. Occasioned by some late virulent books, written by Papists: but especially, by that intituled, Labyrinthus Cantuariensis. Here, besides some other points the grand business of these times, infallibility, is fully discussed. By Meric Casaubon, D.D. and one of the prebends of Canterbury.
