Actes and Monumentes of the church

The Bishop of Cantetbury fyrste speaketh.
From this your iudgement and sentence, I appeale to the iust iudgement of god almighty, trusting to be present with him in heauen, for whose presence in the altar, I am thus condemned.

Doctor Ridley.
Although I be not of your company, yet dout not I, but my name is writtē in an other place, whether this sentence will sende vs sooner, thē we should by the course of nature haue come.

Doctor Latimer.
I thanke God most hartely, that he hath prolonged my lyfe to this ende, that I may in this case glorify God by that kinde of death.

Doctor Westons answere vnto Latimer.
If you goe to heauen in this faith, then wyll I neuer come thether, as I am thus perswaded.

After the sentence pronounced, they were separated one from the other: videlicet, My lord of Cāterbury was put in Bocardo, D. Ridley was caried to maister Shriues house, maister Latimer, in maister Bailifs. On Saterday we had Masse with ora pro nobis, wt great solemnitie. Doctor Cranmer was caused to beholde it out of Bocardo. Doctor Ridley, out of the sheriues house. Latimer also being brought to see that, from the Baylifes house, thoughte that he should haue gone to burning, and spake to one Augustine Cooper, a Catchpole, to make a quicke fier. But when he came to Karfor, and sawe the matter, he ranne as faste as his olde bones woulde carye hym, to one Spensers shop, and would not looke towardes it. Laste of all, Doctor Weston caryed the sacrament and foure Doctors caried the Canipe ouer him.

An other declaration or recapitulation concerning the same processe, with certayne more ample notes and circumstaunces, collected out of an other copy, vppon the same matter aboue expressed.

ALbeit it may seme sufficientlye to be declared before, concerning the order and the procedinges of the vniuersitie Doctors agaynst these thre Bishoppes, yet for as muche as we dooe fynde in other reportes and extractes dyuerse and sondry circumstances, and notes moreouer apperteining to the same, to make the matter as full and as perfect as we can, leauynge out nothyng that is necessary to be added, fyrst to deduce the story from the beginning, it is to be noted that vppon Saterday, the.

bridge, being congregate together, lettres comming downe from Steuen Gardiner, Lorde Chauncellor, were red with articles therwith annexed, that should be disputed vppon at Oxforde, the contentes of which three articles are sufficiently expressed before. Wheruppon in þe sayde congregation of the aforesayde vniuersitie of Cambridge, there was graunted fyrste a grace in this forme, proposed by the Senioure proctour. Placet vobis vt instrumentum fiat, quod horum iam prælectorum, articulorum doctrina sana sit, et catholica, atque cum veritate orthodoxæ fidei consentiens, et vestro consensu, et suffragiis comprobetur? MarginaliaI praye ye stand good maisters to these thre poore artycles commyng here to you a begging for grace. That is, maye it please you to haue an instrumēt made that the doctrine of these foresayde articles maye bee sounde and catholike, and consonant with the veritie of the right meaning fayth, and þt the same may be approued by youre consente and voyces? Secondly in the sayd congregation, a grace was geuen and graunted, that Doctor Yong being the vicechauncelor, Doctor Glin, Doctor Atkinson, Doctor Scot, and mayster Sedgewicke should goe to Oxforde to defend the sayde articles against Canterbury, Londō, and Latimer: Also to haue letters to the Oxforde men, sealed with their common seale: Itē, an other grace graunted for maister Sedgewicke, to be actuall Doctor, being thereuppon immediately admitted. The foresaid letters being then drawē out, the third day after (which was the MarginaliaApril. 11 eleuenth day of Apryll) they were red in the foresaid congregation house, and there sealed.

Wherevpon the next daye after (the. MarginaliaApril. 12 xii. of the saide moneth) the foresayde Doctors wyth the full grace of that vniuersitie set forward to Oxforde: and commyng thether the nexte day after, (being Friday the. MarginaliaApril. 13 xiii. of Apryll) were lodged all at the crosse Inne, with one maister Wakefield, 

Commentary  *  Close

A number of minor but distinct changes were made to this material in the 1570 edition. Some of these appear to have been corrections: e.g. the name of Bonner's servant is given as 'Wakefield' in 1563 (p. 936), but is changed to 'Wakeclyn' (1570, p. 1592; 1576, p. 1358; 1583, p. 1429).

Anone after theyr comming, Doctor Croke presented them with wine, for their welcome: and shortly after two of the Bedles came from the vicechauncellor of Oxforde, and presented the vicechauncellor of Cambridge with a dishe of appels, and a gallon of wyne: After whome next came Doctor Pye and Fecknam to welcome them. Then after consultation concerning the deliuery of their letters, and instrument of grace, (which was in Doctor Seton and Watsons chaumber)

Foxe stated in 1563 (p. 936) that documents were in Watson's chambers; in later editions he stated that they were in his keeping (1570, p. 1592; 1576, p. 1358; 1583, p. 1429).

then they went al to Lincolne College to Doctor Weston the Prolocutor, & to the vicechancellor Doctor Tresham: and there they deliuered their letters, and declared what thei had done touching þe articles, letters, and graces &c. where they had a iunkery, 
Commentary  *  Close

Foxe omitted the phrase 'where they had a junkery but sat not down' from the 1570 edition (cf. 1563, p. 936 with 1570, p. 1592; 1576, p. 1358; 1583, p. 1429), probably because he thought the phrase too informal or inelegant. (Foxe also purged a marginal note containing the word 'junkery' from the 1570 edition [see textual variant 621M]).
