Vpon the Sonday folowyng beyng the xx. of October Doct. Weston MarginaliaD. Westons Popish Sermon at Paules. preached at Paules Crosse. 

Commentary  *  Close

The account of Weston's Paul Cross sermon of 22 October 1553 (1570, p. 1636; 1576, p. 1395; 1583, p. 1466) was clearly based on someone's notes. (By the way, Foxe refers to a rebuttal of this sermon by Coverdale; this has not survived).

Who in the begynnyng of his Sermō willed the people to pray for the soules departed on this wise: You shall pray for all them that be departed, that be neither in heauē nor hell, but in a place not yet sufficiently purged to come to heauen, that they may be releued by your deuout prayers. He named the Lordes table an oyster board. He sayd that þe Catechisme in Latine lately set out was abominable heresie, and likened the setters out of the same Catechisme to Iulianus Apostata, and the booke to a Dialogue set out by the sayd Iulianus Apostata, wherin Christ and Pilate were the speakers: with many other thinges.

Commentary  *  Close

Some egregious inaccuracies come in a list of Mary's episcopal appointments (1570, p. 1636; 1576, p. 1395; 1583, p. 1467). Maurice Griffith's name is given only as 'Mores'. David Pole, who later became Bishop of Peterborough, is listed as Bishop of St. Asaph instead of Thomas Goldwell, the true holder of the see. Thomas Rainolds, who was made Dean of Exeter, is stated to have been made Dean of Bristol (Henry Joliffe actually got this post) and John Moreman is mistakenly declared to have been made Bishop of Exeter. What is revealing here is not only that Foxe must have been repeating errors given by his source, but that if he had made even cursory inquiries, he would have readily discovered that they were errors. (It is also revealing of a larger problem in the Acts and Monuments that all of these errors concern clergy in the west, southwest and Wales, areas about which Foxe was always sketchily informed).
