geue full faith and credence vnto the said Catholike and vniuersall Churche, and to the faith and religion of the same in all necessary pointes of the said faith and religion, without doubting or wauering in the saide fayth and religion, or in any part therof.

Marginalia.3Item, that thou hast not beleued that that faith and religion which bothe the churche of Rome, Italy, Spayn, England, Fraunce, Ireland, Scotland and all other churches in Europe, being true members and partes of the saide Catholike and vniuersall Churche doo beleue and teache, is both agreinge with the saide catholike and vniuersall chuche, and the faith and religion of Christ, and also is the verye true faith and religion which all Christen people ought to beleue, obserue, follow, and kepe: but contrary wyse thou haste beleued, and doest beleue, that that faith and religion which the saide church of Rome, and al the other churches afore sayde haue heretofore beleued, & doo beleue is false, erroneous, and naught, and in no wise ought to be beleued, obserued, kept, and folowed of any christian person.

Marginalia4.Item, that albeit it be true that in the sacrament of the aulter there is in substaunce the verye body and bloud of our sauiour christ vnder the formes of bread and wine: and albeit that it be so beleued, taught, and preached, vndoubtedly in the said churche of Rome and al the other churches a foresayde, yet thou hast not so beleued, nor doest so beleue, but contrarye wise thou haste beleued, and doest beleue firmely, and stedfastly, that there is not in the sacrament of the aulter, vnder the sayde formes of bread and wine, the very substance of Christes body and bloud, but that there is onely the substaunce a materiall and comon bread and wine, with the formes therof, and that the said material and comon bread and wine are onely the signes and tokens of christes body and bloud, and are by faith to be receiued onely for a remembraunce of Christes passion and death, without any such substāce of Christes body and bloud at all.

Marginalia5.Item, 

Commentary  *  Close

As Foxe's marginal notes reveal, he was clearly concerned that this article might be interpreted by readers as too strong a rejection of the sacrament.

that thou hast beleued and taught, & hast openly spoken and defended, and so doest beleue, thinke, mayntain, and defend: that the very true receauing & eatyng of Christes body and bloud, is onely to take material & common bread, and to breake it, and distribute it amongest the people, remembring therby the passion and death of Christ onely.

Marginalia6.Item, that þu hast likewise beleued, thought, and spoken, that the Masse now vsed in thys realme of England and other the churches aforesaid, is abhominable aud nought, and ful of idolatry, and is of the ordināce of the Pope and not of the institution of Christe, and hath no goodnes in it, sauing the Gloria in excelsis, the epistle and Gospel, and therfore thou hast not, nor wylt not come & be present at Masse, nor receiue the sacrament of the alter nor any other sacramēt of the church, as they are now vsed in this realme of England. &c.

Marginalia7,Item, that thou hast in tymes past beleued, and yet doest now beleue, that auricular confession is not necessarye to be made vnto the priest: but it is a thing superfluous, vain and nought, onely to be made to god, and to none other person: And lykewise thou hast condēpned as superfluous, vayne, and vnprofitable al the ceremonies of the churche, and the seruice of the same, and hast sayd that no seruice in the church ought to be said but in the Englishe tongue, and if it be otherwise, it is vnlawfull and nought.

Marginalia8.Item, that thou beyng notoriouslye and openly suspected for an hereticke, and a person culpable in the premysses, wast of late called and conuented before the Earle of Oxford, & maister Philip Paris, and there wast charged with the said heresies, especially agaynste the sacramēt of the aulter. And because thou diddest maintaine and stand to thy said heresies, and wouldest not come to the church, and be confessed, and receiue the said sacrament as other Christen people dyd, but vtterlye dyddest refuse to do the same, thou wast by the sayd Earle of Oxford and Maister Philip Parys, sent vp by a Cōstable vnto me B. of Londō, and wast by them denounced, detected, & put vp to me as an heretick & misbeleuing persō.

Marginalia9.Item, that thou hast knowē & beleued, thou doest know & beleue, or at the least thou hast credibly heard reported, spoken and sayd, that al & al maner persons, which do teach, preach, or hold any thing concerning the sacraments of the chuch, or any the articles of the faith, otherwise then is found alredy discussed & determined by the mother the holye churche, or doth call into doubt or question that thynge which is already decided or determined by the church: or that wyllingly and wittinglye doo vtter openly or priuely, anye sclaunderous or blasphemous wordes concerning the said sacramentes or any of them, or that do preach, teach, or keepe any sect or kinde of heresye against the wholsome doctrine of the church, & do wittingly, willingly, or obstinately defēd þe said sect or kind of heresy ar by the canōs of the whole & vniuersal catholick church, & also by þe ecclesiastical lawes of this church of englande by their so doing, accursed wt that curse which doth separate them frō the entry into the churche, from the receiuing of the sacramentes, and from the companye of faithfull people, and are (in continuing in this said sect and heresy) to be pronounced, declared, and taken for heretickes, and to be deliuered to the secular power, and by the lawes temporal of this realme of England, and the custome of the same, to be by the sayd secular power put to death, and brent for this said sect & heresy.

Marginalia10.Item, that thou by reason of the premisses wast and art to be pronounced, taken, had, reputed, and iudged for a manifest & open, wylful, and obstinate hereticke, for a wycked and cursed person, and to be punished accordyngly for the same, according to the sayd Canon lawes, vsages, and customes.
