Zurich Letters is the name of an English publication of the Parker Society. On the accession of queen Mary, more than a thousand of the Reformers sought refuge on the Continent, and many of them settled in Zurich. On the return of the Zurich exiles to England, at the accession of Elizabeth, in 1558, they naturally maintained a correspondence with the minister and magistrates of Zurich, who had so kindly welcomed them and given them shelter. A portion of these letters have been published, and show the opinion of that time on subjects which afterwards produced such agitation. To these letters is added a letter of later date, written in 1590, by queen Elizabeth to the thirteen Swiss cantons; also a few letters from Peter Martyr, Bullinger, and Gualter, in reply to some of the English Reformers before mentioned.
