Nowe the fruite of the vine was wyne, which Christ dranke and gaue to hys disciples to drynke. Wyth thys sentence agreeth playnly the place of Chrysostome on the xx. chapter of Mathew.

St John Chrysostom, Homiliæ in Matthæum, 82, 2 - PL 58, 740

Migne has:

Sed cur post resurrectionem, non aquam, sed vinum bibit? Ut aliam malam hæresim radicitus evelleret. Quia enim quidam in mysteriis aqua utuntur, ut ostendat se et cum mysteria tradidit vino usum fuisse, et post resurrectionem sine mysteriis in vulgari mensa vinum abhuisse, Ex genimine vitis, inquit. Vinea autem vinum, non aquam gignit ....

And wherefore did He not drink water after he had risen again, but wine. To pluck up by the roots another wicked heresy. For since there are certain who use water in the mysteries; to show that both when He delivered the mysteries He had given wine, and that when He had risen and was setting before them a mere meal without mysteries, He used wine, 'of the fruit', He saith, 'of the vine'. But a vine produces wine, not water.

Nicene & Post Nicene Fathers (NPNF) translation of this work p. 492 col. 2 notes, however, that he is talking about Gnostic use ofonly waterin the sacrament.

As Cyprian doth also, affirming that there is no blood, if wine be not in the cup:

St Cyprian of Carthage, Epistolae 63, 2 - PL 4, 374-5

Migne has:

Nam cum dicat Christus, 'Ego sum vitis vera', sanguis Christi non aqua est utique, sed vinum. Nec potest videri sanguis ejus, quo redempti et vivificati sumus, esse in calice quando vinum desit calici, quo Christi sanguis ostenditur, qui Scriptuarum omnium sacramento ac testimonio prædicetur.

Ante-Nicene Fathers translation (ANF), vol 5, p. 358 - The Epistles of Cyprian 62 (as in Oxford edition):

'For when Christ says,I am the true vine,the blood of Christ is assuredly not water, but wine; neither can his blood by which we are redeemed and quickened appear to be in the cup, when in the cup there is nowine whereby the blood of Christ is shown forth,which is declared by the sacrament and the testimony of all the Scriptures'.

Ridley is perhaps straining the point by taking the passage out of context. Cyprian is asserting the importance of the elements used in celebrating the sacrament - that they be wine and water, not water. Secondly, he is failing to notice that Cyprian is talking of the wine in its capacity to 'show forth' - that is, its ability to give an outward appearance. His opponents would not quarrel with this, and could even use the passage to defend their own view of transubstantiation.

The Councell of Nice alleaged.

Ne humiliter spectemus propositum panem et potum, sed exaltata mēte fideliter credamus iacere in illa sacra mēsa agnum dei, tollentem peccata mundi, a sacerdotibus sacrificatum.

Let vs not looke alowe by the grounde vppon the bread & the drinke set before vs, but lyfting vp our mind, let vs faithfully beleue, there vpō the holy table to lie the lambe of God taking away the sinnes of the worlde, being sacrificed of the priestes.

Gelasius of Cyzicus, Actorum Concilii Nicæni Commentarius - PG 85, 1318B

Migne has:

Iterum etiam hic in divina mensa ne humiliter intenti simus ad propositum panem et poculum: sed attolentes mentem, fide intelligamus situm in sacra illa mensa agnum illum Dei, tollentem peccatum mundi, incruente a sacerdotibus immolatum.(Migne)

This (of course) refers to Nicaea or Nike (in modern Turkey) rather than Nice (in modern France). Gelasius wrote this 'syntagma' to counter the Monophysites, who claimed to be in accord with the Nicaea I. He made use of some good sources (including Eusebius and Theodoret) but the work is not reliable as history or as a record of theacta.Gelasius's work pupports to give an account of Nicaea I, (325 AD). (Nicaea II was a Council little discussed in the time ofSA.St Robert Bellarmine, for example, says that it was only 'known of late' - and not to St Thomas Aquinas,De Imag. Sanct. 2, 22.As it came to be widely known, its teaching on the Holy Icons made it unacceptable to reformers.) This passage from Gelasius was cited in Convocation in 1553 when transubstantiation was reaffirmed. Bishop Tunstall'sDe ueritate Corporis et Sanguinis domini Nostri Jesu Christi in Eucharistia,1554, 2nd edition, folio 40 ('ex Nicena Synodo') gives:

Iterum etiam hic in diuina mensa, ne humilitater intenti simus ad propositum panem, & poculum, sed attolentes mentem, fide intelligamus situm in sacra illa mensa, agnum illum Dei, tollentem peccata mundi, incruente a sacerdotibus immolatum, & preciosum ipsius corpus & sanguinem nos vere sumentes, credere hæc esse nostræ resurrectionis symbola.

The fact that his translation differs somewhat from ours is not significant - the decrees were clearly first written in Greek and are indeed so quoted in Tunstall. Interestingly, the version he gives in his later discussion - seemingly made by Oecolampadius, the reformer, (cf folio 40v - 41v) - is closer toSA.

MS 46397.

Nullus Apostolorum dixit, hæc est figura corporis Christi. Nullus venerabilium præsbyterorum dixit incruentem altaris sacrificium figuram:

That is: None of the Apostles said, this is a figure of the body of Christ: None of the reuerend Elders said, the vnbloudy sacrifice of the altar to be a figure.

Still to be traced - though I have some leads. It is apparently found in the 1671 - 72 edition of L'Abbé and Cossart'sConcilia,volume 7, column 449, and this should enable me to trace it back to a contemporary Tudor collection in due course. Although the passage appears to be a text 'attributed' to the first Nicene Council, as Ridley said: 'This Canon is not in the Conncel of Nice. nFor I haue read ouer this Councel many times'. It seems rather to be amongst thespuriaattached to Nicæa II. In fact it is faintly reminiscent of passages in St Ambrose -Although the figure of the bread and wine be seen, still, after the Consecration, they are believed to be nothing else than the body and blood of Christ(St Ambrose,De Sacramentis,4, quoted in theSumma Theologica,III, Q.75, Art. 2). It also bears resemblance to certain passages in Tertullian.

At the foot of this quotation in SA come the figures [1]383 - long thought to be a conciliar date - i.e. (ignoring the partly damaged [1], the date of 383 AD. However, Nicaea I was held in 325 and Nicaea II in 787 - the first and seventh Ecumenical Councils respectively. The figure '[1]383' in SA is therefore probably not a date at all but a cross reference to page 1383 of the 1576 edition of Foxe - where the relevant passage is found. This is another fairly decisive piece of evidence in establishing the edition of Foxe used in the writing of SA.

... sicuti est baptismi sacramentum, et celebratio corporis et sanguinis Domini. Quæ unusquisque cum percipit, quo referantur imbutus agnoscit, ut ea non carnali servitute, sed spirituali potius libertate veneretur.

' ... such, for example, as the sacrament of baptism, and the celebration of the body and blood of the Lord. And as soon as any one looks upon these observances, he knows to what they refer, and so reveres them not in carnal bondage, but in spiritual freedom.'

He goes on to say: 'Now, as to follow the letter, and to take signs for the things that are signified by them, is a mark of weakness and bondage; so to interpret signs wrongly is the result of being misled by error. He, however, who does not understand what a sign signifies, but yet knows that it is a sign, is not in bondage. And it is better even to be in bondage to unknown but useful signs than, by interpreting them wrongly, to draw the neck from under the yoke of bondage only to insert it in the coils of error.'

St Augustine is writing here of the way in which signs and types were overly revered under the Old Covenant - so that when the new came it became very difficult to rise above them. What he thinks of the Body and Blood of the Lord under the New Covenant is made clear by his words just before: (Chapter 9, 13.) 'But, at the present time, after the proof of our liberty has shone forth so clearly in the resurrection of our lord, we are not oppressed with the heavy burden of attending even to those signs which we now understand, but our Lord Himself, and apostolic practice, have handed down to us a few rites in place of many, and these at once very easy to perform, most majestic in their significance, and most sacred in the observance; such, for example, as the sacrament of baptism, and the celebration of the body and blood of the Lord.'

There are many related passages in this treatise, such as - Chap 9, 13 'Now such a man is spiritual and free even at the time of his bondage, when it is not yet expedient to reveal to carnal minds those signs of subjection to which their carnality is to be overcome.' - Chap 8, 12 'Accordingly the liberty that comes by Christ took those whom it found under bondage to useful signs, and who were (so to speak) near to it, and, interpreting the signs to which they were in bondage, set them free ...' - Chap 5, 9. 'Now it is surely a miserable slavery of the soul to take signs for things, and to be unable to lift the mind above what is corporeal and created, that it may drink in eternal light.'

St Augustine goes on in Chapter 10 to explain how we may discern whether a passage in scripture is figurative, or not. (Whenever it cannot literally be taken to refer to purity of life or soundness of doctrine).

Latimer: It is not out of the way to remember what S. Augustine saith. The place where, I now wel remember not except it be against the Epistles of Petilyan:Who soeuer(saith he)teacheth any thing necessarily to be beleeued, which is not contayned in the old or newe Testament, the same is accursed.Oh beware of this curse, if you be wise. I am much deceyued if Basilius haue not such like wordes.What soeuer(saith he)is besides the holy scripture, if the same be taught as necessaryly to be beleeued, that is sinne.

I have not found the point to which Latimer alludes in the Answer to the Letter of Petilian, but there are other passages of St Augustine which make similar points - eg St Augustine of Hippo,De Bono Viduitatis, 2'What more can I teach you, than what we read in the Apostle? For holy Scripture setteth a rule to our teaching, that we dare not "be wise more than it behoveth to be wise;" but be wise, as himself saith, "unto soberness, according as unto each God hath allotted the measure of faith." (Rom 12:3) Be it not therefore for me to teach you any other thing, save to expound to you the words of the Teacher, and to treat of them as the Lord shall have given to me.' Then, in St Augustine of Hippo,De Doctrina Christiana, 2, 9.(See alsoCity of God,Book 9, Chapter 3.)

St Basil the Great,Homiliae et Sermones, 15- PG 31, 463-472 may be the source of the second point, but I have not found it explicity there. The sermon headed in Migne by the words 'Homilia in illud,Attende tibi ipsi - Deut 15, 9' [PG 31, 215] may be a more likely candidate.

I give in Tunstall's version (De ueritate Corporis et Sanguinis domini Nostri Jesu Christi in Eucharistia,2nd edition, 1554, folio 100, given as 'tract. 25') rather than Migne's:

Hoc est opus Dei ut credatis in eum quem misit ille. Hoc est ergo manducare cibum non qui perit, sed qui permanet in uitam æternam: ut quid parasdentes & uentrem? crede & manducasti.

(In SAedistireplacesmanducasti.It is possible that another passage or alternative version of the text exists with this substitution, but it is most likely that the change was made by the scribe.) NPNF 7, p 164 gives the following translation of the context:

'... This is the work of god, that ye believe in Him whom He has sent.' This is then to eat the meat, not that which perisheth, but that which endureth to eternal life, to what purpose dost thou make ready teeth and stomach? Believe, and thou hast eaten already.

Non solum homines. &c

Not translated in Foxe

St John Chrysostom, De incomprehensibili Dei natura (seu contra Anomeos) 3, 40 - PG 48, 726

Migne has:

Non homines solum horrendam illam emittunt vocem, sed et angeli Dominum procumbunt, archangeli precantur: habent tempus illud idoneum, oblationem sibi faventem.

The context is as follows: 'Suppose, at that sacred moment, you should happen to be in the market place, or at home, or involved in pressing business transactions. Should you not grow more violent than any lion and burst every bond which holds you back? Will you not leave all this behind and hurry to join the others in their comon prayer and supplication? My beloved, tell me this. What hope of salvation will you have at that sacred moment? It is not only men who are making their voices heard in that prayer, a prayer which is filled with the holiest fear and dread. Angels, too, fall down in adoration before their lord. Archangels beg his favour. They have that sacred moment to fight for them as their ally; they have the sacrifice to lend them aid.'

Homily III was singled out by contemporary sources (egDe ueritate Corporis et Sanguinis Iesu Christi in Eucharistia,by Bishop Tunstall) to point out the centrality of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in all prayer, as well as for the departed. Tunstall begins his quotation of it at section 41, however: (Vt homines ramos olearum gerentes) which continues the section above and reads (in English) as follows:

'Men cut down olive branches and wave them in the paths of kings. They wave those branches to remind their rulers to be merciful and kind. But at that sacred moment, instead of olive branches, the angels are holding forth the Lord's body, and they are calling upon the Lord on behalf of human nature, just as if they were praying in some such words as these: "We pray for these men whom you first deemed so worthy of your love that you laid down your own life. We pour forth our supplications for those for whom you yourself poured forth your blood. We call upon you on behalf of those for who you offered this body of yours in sacrifice."'

Those wishing to familiarise themselves with this treatise will find an English version in the Catholic University of America's patristic collection 'The Fathers of the Church':On the Incomprehensible Nature of God by St John Chrysostom,translated by Paul W. Harkins, Washington, 1982, from which, with very slight alterations, the two translations above are taken.

S. Augustine saith, that these wordes:Ego ero. etc.I wyl be with you, euen to the ende of the worlde, are accomplishedsecundum maiestatem,Accordyng to hys maiesty: Butsecundum præsentiam carnis, non est hic,By the presence of his flesh he is not here.

St Augustine of Hippo, In evangelium Joannis tractatus, 50, 13 - PL 35, 1763.

Migne has:

'Ecce ego vobiscum sum usque in consummationem saeculi’. Secundum carnem vero quam Verbum assumpsit, secundum id quod de Virgine natus est, secundum id quod a Judaeis prehensus est, quod ligno confixus, quod de cruce depositus, quod linteis involutus, quod in sepulcro conditus, quod in resurrectione manifestus, ‘ non semper habebitis vobiscum’. Quare? Quoniam conversatus est secundum corporis praesentiam quadraginta diebus cum discipulis suis, et eis deducentibus videndo non sequendo, ascendit in coelum, etnon est hic. Ibiest enim, sedet ad dexteram Patris:et hic est,non enim recessit praesentia majestatis. Aliter: secundumpraesentiam majestatissemper habemus Christum; secundumpraesentiam carnis,recte dictum est discipulis, 'Me autem non semper habebitis'.

This can be translated fairly idiomatically: 'Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world'. Of course, as far as the flesh is concerned, that flesh which was truly taken by the Word, born of the Virgin, seized by the Jews, nailed to the tree, taken down from the cross, wrapped in the shroud, laid in the tomb and revealed in the Resurrection, 'you will not have him with you always'. Why? Because referring to the presence of his physical body, he was only with his disciples for forty days, and then, leading them out to witness what happened but not to accompany him, he ascended to the right hand of the Father, and in this sensehe is no longer here.On the contrary, he isthere,sitting at the right hand of the Father.But he is here also,in the sense that he has never taken away his majestic presence. In other words, as far as thismajestic presenceis concerned, we always have Christ; but as far as hisfleshly presenceis concerned, he rightly said to his disciples, 'You will not always have me'.

Migne has:

There may perhaps have been a confusion with St Augustine of Hippo,In evangelium Joannis tractatus, 25, 11- PL 35, 1601 -Quia filius sum hominis; et quaerite a me 'cibum non qui perit, sed qui permanet in vitam aeternam.

Me autem non semper habebitis: The sonne of God, as touching his humanitie is gone from vs, by his diuinitie he remaineth with vs.And that same Vigilius in his fourth booke saith:… the heauen, is not in the earth, …

Vigilius of Thapsus, Contra Eutychetem, 1, 6 - PL 62, 98D.

Migne has:

Dei Filius secundum humanitatem suam recessit a nobis, secundum divinitatem suam ait nobis: 'Ecce ego vobiscum sum omnibus diebus usque ad consummationem saeculi'.

The second reference occurs later in the same work: Vigilius of Thapsus,Contra Eutychetem, 4, 14 - PL 62, 126B.

Migne has:

Deinde si Verbi et carnis una natura est, quomodo cum Verbum ubique sit, non ubique inveniatur et caro? Nam quando in terra fuit, non erat utique in coelo. Et nunc quia in coelo est, non est utique in terra, et in tantum non est, ut secundum ipsam Christum spectemus esse venturum de coelo, quem secundum Verbum nobiscum esse credimus in terra.

Vigilius was a Bishop at Thapsus in the North African province of Byzacena. His five books against the heresy of Eutyches are his best known works, but he wrote a good deal of excellent Christological material after he went into exile following a conference convened by the overbearing vandal Huneric in 484. He spent time in Constantinople, and this benefitted his theology, which displays the rounded, complete and precise qualities of some of his eastern models. He is an eloquent exponent of the two natures in Christ, and an able opponent of Arianism, although much of his work has been lost. There are several very intriguing passages inContra Eutychetem,including4, 4- PL 62, 121A -Si enim non est conversus in carnem, et factus est homo permanens Deus, hoc ipsum quod factus est homo, quia immutatio dici non potest, assumptio dicatur necesse est: as sic gemimum quiddam erit id quod erat, et mutatum non est; et id quod non erat, et factum est, vel assumptum; quia id quod erat non est mutatum in carnem, et tamen habet carnem ... etc.On the basis of these passages some (eg. P. Quesnel) have argued that Vigilius was the author of the so-called 'Athanasian Creed'.

This is probably a reference to St John of Damascus,De Fide Orthodoxa, 4, 13- PG 94, 1146A, or to a similar, related passage in St John, although it will be helpful to find the exact contemporary translation that was used by the Disputatants.

Migne has (in his Latin version):

St Augustine saith 'our flesh goeth into his flesh'.

cf St Augustine of Hippo,In evangelium Joannis tractatus, 26, 18- PL 35, 1614, may have been the minds of the Disputants, although a more accurate passage can probably be found in due course. Migne has:

Ac per hoc qui non manet in Christo, et in quo non manet christus, procul dubio nec manducat [spiritualiter] carnem ejus, nec bibit ejus sanguinem, [licet carnaliter et visibiliter premat dentibus Sacramentum corporis et sanguinis Christi:] sed magis tantae rei Sacramentum ad judicium sibi manducat et bibit ...

Consequently, he that dwelleth not in Christ, and in whom Christ dwelleth not, doubtless neither eateth his flesh [spiritually] nor drinketh his blood [although he may press the sacrament of the body and blood of Christ carnally and visibly with his teeth], but rather doth he eat and drink the sacrament of so great a thing to his own judgement.
