Other som he had made to holde his stiroppes, others he had displaced and remoued from their Empires and seates riall: and not content herewithal, more insolent then Lucifier, hath occupied not only the highest place in this world, aboue Kings and Princes, but hath further presumed to sit in þe seate of almighty god, which onely hee reserued to him selfe, which is the conscience of man. And for to kepe the possession therof, he hath promised forgiuenes of syns totiens quotiens. He hath brought in gods of his own framing, and inuented a newe religion, full of gaine and lucre, quite contrary to the doctrin of þe holy scripture, onely for the maintaining of his kingdom, displacinge Christe from hys glory, and holding hys people in a miserble seruitude of blindnes, to the losse of a greate number of soules, which god at the latter day shall exacte at his hand, bosting many times in his Canons and decrees that hee canne dispense contra Petrum, contra Paulum, contra vetus, contra nouum testamentum.

O Lord, who euer heard suche blasphemy? If ther be any man that can aduaunce him selfe aboue him, let him be iudged Anti-Christ. This enemy of God & our redemptiō, is so euidently painted out in the scriptures by such manifest signes and tokens, which all so clearely appeare in him, that excepte a man will shut vp his eyes, and hart, againste the light, he cannot but knowe him. And therfore for my parte I wil neuer geue my consent to the receauing of him into this church of England. And you my Lorde, and the rest that sit here in commission, consider wel and examine your owne consciences: you haue sworne against him, you are learned, and can iudge of the truth. I praye God you be not wilfully blind. For me, I haue herein discharged mine owne conscience toward the world, and I wil write also my mind to her grace touching this matter. The copye of which letter sent to the Quene, ye shal finde after in the ende of this examination. &c.

While he in this sort made his answere, Storye and Martin diuers times interrupted him saieng he spake blasphemie, and woulde faine haue had the bishop to haue put him to silēce,

who not withstanding did not, but suffered him to ende his tale at full. After this they proceded to examine him of diuers articles, wherof the chefe were these: That at the time of his making and creating Bishop of Caunterbury, he was sworne to the Pope, and had his institution and inductiō from him, & promised to maintaine then the authoritye of that sea, and therfore was periured. Wher fore he shoulde rather sticke to his first othe, and retorne to his olde folde againe, thē to cōtinue obstinately in an othe forced in the time of schisme. To þt he answered, sauing his protestation, (which terme he vsed before all his answers) that at suche time as byshop Warram died, he was Embassador in Germanye for the king, who sēt for him thereupon home, and hauing intelligence by some of his frends (who wer nere about the king) how he ment to bestow the same byshoprick vpon him, and therfore counselled him in that case to make haste home, he fealing in him selfe a greate inhabilitie to suche a promotion, and very sorye to leaue his studye, and especiallye considering by what meanes he must haue it, which was cleane againste his conscience which he coulde not vtter withoute greate perill and daunger, deuised an excuse to the kynge of matter of great importaunce, for the wyche his lenger abode there was most necessarye, thinking by that meanes in his absence that the kinge would haue bestowed it vpon some other, and so remained there by that deuise one halfe yeare after the king had written for hym to come home. But after no such matter fel out, as he semed to make suspition of, the king sent for him again, reuoking him clean. So after his retourne, vnderstanding still the Byshopricke to be reserued for him, he made meanes by diuers of his best frendes, to shifte it of, desiring rather some smaller liuing, that he might more quietly follow his booke.

And to bee briefe, when the Kyng hym selfe spake with hym, declaring his full intention for his seruice sake, and for the good opinion he conceiued of him was to bestowe that digty vpon him, after long disabling of him self, perceauing he could by no perswasions alter the kinges determination, he brake frankely his conscience with him, moste humblye crauing first his graces pardon, for that he shuld declare vnto his highnes. Which obtayned, he declared that if he accepted that office, then he must receiue it at the Popes hand, whych he neither would nor coulde doo, for that hys highnes was onely the supreme Gouernour of this church of England, as well in causes ecclesiasticall as temporall, and that the full right and donation of all maner of Byshoprickes and benefices, aswell as of anye other temporal dignities and promotions appertai-
