learne the faith set furth in King Edwardes dayes, in the which faith and religiō she hath hetherto, and yet dothe, and so will hereafter continue, God so assisting her.

Marginalia5.To the fifte article, they answer and confesse according al in this effecte, that as touching the masse, they knowe no goodnes in it And as touching the sacrament of the aultar they beleaue that Christes naturall body is in heauen, and not in the sacrament of the aulter. And as concerning the See of Rome, they acknowledge no suche supremacy in that sea, neither haue they any thing to doo therewith.

Marginalia6In answering to the sixt Article, they do all generally refuse to be reconciled or vnited to the church of Rome, or any other church contrarye to that wherein they nowe stande and doo professe.

Marginalia7.To the seuenth article, they aunswer lykewyse that they haue so done and sayde, in all thinges, as is in this article contayned, Katherin Hut adding moreouer the reason why, for that (sayth she) neither the seruice in latin, masse, mattins, and Euensong, nor the sacramentes are vsed and ministred to gods word. And furthermore, that the masse is an Idoll, neither is the true body and bloude of Christe in the sacrament of the aultar, as they make men beleue,

Marginalia8.Their aunswer to the eyght article declareth that they were al and euerye one sent vp to Boner, by MarginaliaSyr Iohn Mordaunt promoter.syr Iohn Mordaunt knight, and Iustice of peace in Essexe (the Lorde of hys mercy send vs better Iustices I besech hym) for that they could not affirme the presence of Christes body and bloud to be truly and really in the sacrament. And for that they came not to theyr parish popish church.

Marginalia9.To the. ix. article, they answer and confesse the premisses therof to be true, and denye not the same. Saue that Katerin Hutte saythe, that she is of Bocking in Essexe of the peculiar iurisdiction of Caunterbury, & not of the dioces and iurisdiction of London.

After these their aunswers receyued, they were produced agayne about the. xiii. of April to further examination, and so at length to their final iudgement, where MarginaliaKatheryne Hutte.Katherin Hut wydow standeth before the bishop boldly and constantly stode to that which she had sayde before, nether yelding to his fayre promises, nor ouerthrowen with his terrors. Who being required of the sacrament to say her mind and to reuoke herselfe vnto the feloship of the catholique fayth, openly protested, saying: MarginaliaThe wordes of Katherin Hut of the Sacrament.I deny it to be God, because it is a dombe God, and made with mans hands, wherin the good and faythfull Martyr of Christes firmly persisting, so receiued her sentence being condēpned of Boner to the fyere, which shee with greate constancy susteined with the grace and

strength of the Lord, & dyd abyde for the cause and loue of Christ.

MarginaliaIone Hornes maid.Ione Hornes mayde, producted likewise to her iudgement and condemnation, with like fyrmnes and christian fortitude declared herselfe a true folower and martyr of Christes testament, geuing no place to the aduersary but being charged with that opinion in not beleuing the sacrament of christes body and bloude to be Christ hym selfe, of the which sacrament (cōtrary to the nature of a sacramēt) the aduersaryes are wonte to make an Idolle seruice: to this she protesting openly her mind sayth as foloweth: MarginaliaThe wordes & profession of Ione Hornes touching the sacrament.if you can make your God to shed bloud, or to shew any condition of a trewe lyuely body, then will I beleaue you: but it is but bread (as touching the substance therof) meaning the matter wherof the sacrament consisteth: and that you call heresy, I trust to serue my Lord God in. &c.

As as concerning the romishe See, shee sayd: My Lord (speaking to Boner) I forsake al his abhominations, and from them good Lord deliuer vs. From this her stable and constant assertion, when the bishop was to weak to remoue her, to ignoraunt to conuince her, MarginaliaButcherly axe of Boner.he knockt her downe with the butcherly axe of his sentence. And so the holy virgine and martyr committed to the shambles of the secular sword was offered vp with her other felowes a burnt sacrifce to the Lord, in ordorem bonæ fragrantiæ

Foxe text narrative, possibly citing Ephesians, 5. 2.
Foxe text Latin

in odorem bonae fragrantiae.

Foxe text translation

in the sauour of a sweete and pleasaunt smell.

Actual text of Ephesians, 5. 2. (Vulgate)

et hostiam Deo in odorem suavitatis.

[Especially in view of the context of ahostiam(sacrificial victim), it would seem that Foxe is thinking of this passage in Ephesians.]

in the sauour of a sweete and pleasaunt smell.

MarginaliaMargaret Ellys.Of Margaret Ellys it is sufficiently declared before, who lykewise perseueringe in her forsayd confession and resisting the false catholyque errours & heresyes of the papistes, was by the said Boner adiudged and condēpned: but before the tyme of her burning came preuented by death in Newgate prison, shee departed and slepte in the Lord.

No lesse strength in the grace of the Lord appeared in the other maide, Elizabeth Thacuel, whose hart and mynde the Lorde had so confirmed in hys truth, so armed wyth patience, that as her aduersaries could by no sufficient knowledge of scripture conuict her affirmation, so by no forceable attemptes they could remoue her confession. Wherupon she standing to the death, being in lyke sort condemned, by the sayde vnbyshoplike πλήκτησ, gaue her lyfe wyllinglye aud myldlye for the confirmation and sealing vppe of the sincere truth of Gods woord.
