AS no civilis’d Nation ever was without Religion, so Divine Worship has always been accounted the Business of all Mankind, and a Duty in which the meanest, as well as the highest, from the Prince to the Beggar, are equally concern’d. This, and the Respect due to the Deity to be adored, have been the Reason that the Edifices set apart for a general Worship, were always not only spacious, but as soon as Man could raise them, likewise fine and stately Structures. As this must make the building of them very Expensive, they are generally rais’d at the [118 118] Publick Cost, and therefore Temples are National, and only made use of to celebrate that Worship, that belongs to the National Religion, which the Government, and the Generality of a Country profess.
