Item, that the said B. and al other persons aforsaid, do vse more lenitie & clemēcy with such as haue maried, whose wiues be dead, then with other, whose wemē do yet remaine in life. And likewyse such priests, as with the consents of their wiues, or wemen opēly in the presence of the B. doo professe to abstaine, to be vsed the more fauourably, in the which case after penance effectually done, the B. according to his discretiō & wisdom may vpon iust consideration receiue, and admit thē again to their former administration, so it be not in the same place, appointing them such a portion to liue vpon, to be paid out of their benefice, wherof they be depriued, by discretion of the said B. or his officer shall thinke may be spared of the said benefice.

Item, that euery B. and all other persons aforesaid, do forsee, that they suffer not any religious mā hauing solemly professed chastitie, to cōtinue with his woman or wife, but that all such persons, after depriuation of their benefice or ecclesiastical promotiō, be also diuorsed euery one from his saide woman, and due punishement otherwise taken for the offence therin.

Item, that euery B. and all other persons aforesaid, do take order & direction with the parishioners of euery benefice, where priestes do want, to repaire to the next parish for diuine seruice, or to appoint for a conuenient time, till other better prouision may be made, one curat to serue, alternis vicibus  

Commentary  *  Close

Mary ordered that, where necessary, one curate should serve 'alternis vicibus' (1563, p. 925; 1570, p. 1586); in the 1576 edition this was misprinted as 'alienis vicibus' (1576, p. 1354), a mistake which was repeated in the 1583 edition (p. 1414). Once again, careless typography in the 1576 edition was uncorrected in that of 1583.

Item, that all & al maner of processions of the church be vsed, frequēted, & continued after the old order of the church in the Latin tongue.

Item, that al such holy days & fasting days be obserued and kept, as were obserued & kept in the latter tyme of king Henry the eyght.

Item, touching such persons, as were heretofore promoted to any orders after the new sort and fashion of orders, cōsidering they were not ordered in very deede, the B. of the dioces finding otherwise sufficiēcie and habilitie in those men, may supply that thing, whiche wanted in them before. And then according to his discretion admitte them to minister.

Item, that they examine all scholemaisters & teachers of childrē, and finding them suspect, in any wyse to remoue them, and place catholike men in their roumes, with a special cōmaundement to instruct their children, so as they may be able to answer the priest at the masse, and so help the priest to masse, as hath ben accustomed

Block 13: The Lord Mayor's Prescript

In the 1563 edition, Foxe printed an order which Bonner had issued for the repairing of churches; this was another document printed from Bonner's register (Guildhall MS 9531/12, fol. 345r). Curiously, Foxe never reprinted this order (textual variant 28); if this was deliberate, it is difficult to see the reason for it.
