Marginalia30. To the maior he aunswereth: the true bloud and the same bloud which issued out of his syde is in the cup: but not after the same māner. Frō his side it stremed really, and substancially. In the cuppe it is sacramentally, that is, by waye and condicion of representation, so by hym ordayned. The question is not of being: for that is graunted on both parties, but of the manner of being, which now in heauen is reallye, in the receiuers is spiritually, in the Eucharist sacramētally,

Marginalia31The minor is thus to be vnderstande: breade and wine, as it is cōmō bread and cōmon wine haue no promise: but as they be sanctified into a sacramēt of the Lordes body and bloud, they haue promise of grace adnexed, but so adnexed, that not they thē selues haue or geue the grace, but they are onely as instrumentes wherby grace cōmeth, not for their sake, but for that thing which they represent.

Marginalia32.This argumēt of doctour Smith lacketh his right shape and forme, hauing 4. termes &c. farther to the sequele which he inferreth vpon this argument: but Christ bare him selfe in his owne handes, Ergo he bare no figure of his body &c. To this is aunswered by a distinction: really and sacramentally. Really neither Dauid nor Christe did beare hym selfe in his own hands: MarginaliaD. Smith falsifieth the wordes of Augustine. sacramentally Dauid could not bear him selfe, but Christ so did at the supper, and that Austē meaneth, addyng this word, quodam modo, after a certayne manner, expounding thereby his wordes before. And thus doctor Smith falsely and craftely leaueth out, in alleging the doctors wordes.

Marginalia34.To the Maior he answereth: we worship the same naturall body of Christe, which the wise men did worship, but not after the same maner: that is not really here ‚sent to our bodies, as he was to theirs, but spiritually or sacramentally. And so we worship christe spirituallye in his woorde, and scriptures, and yet we say not that he is really present in the scriptures.

Marginalia36.First he denieth the maior: secondly he distincteth the woorde (church) in the minor.

☞ Here followeth a copie of the letter of warraunte,

sent from the Quene to Richard Atkinson Mayor of Oxford, Richard Iuery, and William Tony Baylifes, and the rest of the Aldermen and inhabitauntes of the same citie, concerning the custody and bringing forth of the sayd Byshops to the disputations.

¶ To our trusty and welbeloued the Mayor, Aldermen, and other thinhabitauntes of the citie of Oxford.

TRusty and welbeloued, we greete you well. And where D. Cranmer, late Archbishop of Caunterbury, D. Ridley, and Hugh Latimer clarke, now remaining in your custody, by your appointmēt haue besides other their great crimes, maintained and openly sette forth diuerse heresies and erroneouse and most pernicious opinions, contrary to the catholike fayth of Christ his church, to the great offēce of allmighty god, and euyll and daungerous exāple of all our faythfull and louinge subiectes: like as it hath bene wisely cōsidered in the conuocation of the bishops, prelates, and other the clergy of this our realme that the heresies moued and nourished by the forsayde persons, and other their adherents, being no lesse perillous for the state of our realme, then hurtfull to the settinge fourth of gods glorye, and the furtheraunce of the catholike religion, are meete to be by lerning conuinced and ouer throwne in time so haue they for that purpose appointed certain graue and well lerned doctours and others, as wel of that our vniuersity of Oxford, as of our vniuersity of Cambrige, to heare in open disputations the sayed Cranmer, Ridley, and Latimar, so as their erroneous opiniōs, beīg by the worde of god iustly and truly conuinced, the residew of our subiects may be therby the better established in the true catholike fayth. We therefore, minding to haue the trueth of Christs catholique religion sette fourth, and iustlye established among our louing subiects, to his glory and benefite of this our realme, doo let you weete, our will and pleasure is, that when, and as often as the sayde learned persons, appointed for that purpose, shall require you, to cause the sayde Cranmer, Ridley, and Latimer, euery or any of them, to be brought to the place of open disputation, you shal not only geue order for the saulfe conueying thither of them, or any one or two of them, at the howers to them to be appoynted but also to receiue them again into your custody, to be kept altogethers, or seuerally, as the commissioners shal appoynt, frō time to time, vntill farther order shalbe taken in this behalfe, accordingly. Yeauen vnder our signet at our Manor of Sainte Iames the xi. of Aprill, and first yeare of our raign.

Commentary  *  Close

Foxe transposed a description of the condemnation of Cranmer, Ridley and Latimer from the first informant's account of the Oxford disputations (see textual transposition 6). These passages first appeared in the Rerum (pp. 704-05), demonstrating that Foxe had obtained the first informant's account while he was in exile. The description of the procession and of Latimer's reaction to it is particularly interesting. The identification of 'Augustine Cooper' (see 'Augustine Kyrke' - "Personal Identifications") as a catchpole was accurate and confirms the accuracy of the first informant and his status as an eyewitness.

the cōmissioners sat in Saint maries church, where D. Weston particularly discoursed with them, that they should subscribe, who because the refused so to do, by & by the sentēce of the condēnation scholastical was red against thē by D. Weston. In Dei nomine Amen: Cum Reuerēdus in Christo pater D. Edmundus permissione diuina Londinensis, &c The whiche condemnation, because of the superfluous tediousnes therof, hauing els nothinge in it worthy to be knowen, we haue here omitted. After which cōdemnatiō what the prolocutor with other did & sayd, and what were the godly aunsweres of the bishops agayne, bycause it is expressed before, we refer the reader to the same place, which is pag. 936.
