who afterward was B. of Bathe, he takynge occasion of the Gospell of the daye to speake somewhat largely in iustifiyng of Boner, the byshop then present, which Bonner vpon the same text in that place that daye foure yeares had preached before, and was vpon the same moste cruelly and vniustly, as he saide, caste in the mooste vyle Dongeon of the Martiall see, and there kept duryng the tyme of kynge Edward. His wordes sounded so euyll in the eares of the hearers, that they coulde not kepe sylence, but began to murmure, and to sturre in suche sorte, that the Mayer and Aldermen with other estates then present, feared muche an vproare. But the truth is that one hurled a dagger at þe preacher, but who it was it coulde not be proued. In fine the sturre was suche, that the preacher withdrewe hym selfe from the place.

Bourne's Sermon

Unsurprisingly, the margin points up the story of Bourne being rescued from an ugly crowd by Bradford and Rogers ('M. Iohn Bradford appeaseth the people' and 'Bradford, and Rogers garded the preacher'). The variation in terminology at the glosses 'Cranmer offereth to defend the doctrine of the boke of cōmōpraier' (1563) and 'Cranmer offereth to defend the doctrine of the seruice booke in english' (1570 and 1576) is possibly suggestive of changing views on the part of Foxe and his contemporaries about Cranmer's liturgy.

Commentary  *  Close

The word 'day' in 1583, p. 1497 [recte 1409], is 'Sunday' in the previous three editions. This is a misprint in the 1583 edition which changes the chronology.

Commentary  *  Close

The entry for 5 September, concerning Peter Martyr, first appears in the 1563 edition and was taken from Crowley's chronicle (cf. Crowley, Epitome, sig. Ffff1v with 1563, p. 905; 1570, p. 1571; 1576, p. 1339; 1583, p. 1397 [recte 1409]).

Commentary  *  Close

In the 1563 edition (p. 905), Foxe reports that John Taylor, the Bishop of Lincoln, was sent to the Tower after refusing to attend mass at the opening of Parliament. In subsequent editions (1570, p. 1571; 1576, p. 1339 and 1583, p. 1410) Foxe corrected this to say that Taylor was commanded to attend and died soon afterwards at Ankerwicke (in Sir Thomas Smith's house, although Foxe does not say so). This is a good example of the detailed correction of the first edition from well informed oral sources.

Maister Harley, because he was maried, was excluded both from the parliament and from his bishoprick.

Commentary  *  Close

The material on the repeal of the Henrician and Edwardian religious statutes and the story of Judge Hales is taken entirely from Crowley's chronicle (cf. Crowley, Epitome, sig. Ffff2r with 1563, p. 905; 1570, p. 1571; 1576, p. 1339-40; 1583, p. 1410).

Foxe would later (in Book 11) repeat the story of Hales at greater length, drawing upon other sources.
