Actes and Monumentes of the churche

the Romish religion from the bottom of theyr harts, & to curry fauor wt the Commissyoners, they promised to take vpō thē þe order of priesthod wtout delay. For they knew the Cōmissioners would like þt very well, which alredy wer in such wise minded, þt as they wold wthold no mā from þe order, that would offer himself ther vnto: so would they by al meanes endeuour to bring euery man therto, that was any thyng witty or learned. MarginaliaThe cause why the reformatyō was taken in hand.We said at the first, that the Cardinal thought thuniuersity to haue nede of reformation. The reason why he should thinke so, was this: either because the same of long cōtinuaunce since any man could remember, had cast of the yoke of the Bishop of Rome, & cleaued to the wholesom doctrine of the Gospell, which is falsly diffamed of heresy: or els by reason þt both for the late schisme, not yet worne out of memory, & for the doctrine of Martin Bucer, who not long before openly in the sayd Vniuersity interpreted holy scripture, they saw so many so sore corrupted & spotted with thys infection, that (euen as when a fire is spred into a town, vnlesse a spedy remedy wer adhibyted out of hand) it wer not possible (by al likelihode) to quench it many yeres after. And it was to be feared (if it wer not loked to in time) lest (as it cōmonly commeth to passe in bodies diseased) this mischief should take roote, and by litle and litle infect all the mēbers next vnto it, which yet wer whole and sound.

This was the yere of our Lord. 1556. MarginaliaThe comming of the inquisitors & of theyr entertainement,To thētent therfore to make a salue for this sore, the Cōmissioners of whō we spake before, came vnto Cambridge þe ninth day of Ianuary. As they were yet on their iourney, not farre from the towne, diuers of the masters and presidents of the Colleges met them, & brought them courteously, first into the town, and after to their lodging. They wer entertained in Trinity College by Iohn Christophorson master of þe same house, & lately before elected B. of Chichester. Some wer desired to one place, & some to another, as ther was occasion, either to doe theyr dueties, or to shew their good willes: Cole to the kings College, & Watson to sainct Iohns. But whether it wer for thacquaintāce of Christophorson, or for the largenes of the house, which forasmuch as it was able to receiue thē al, semed therfore most mete and cōuenient to take their cōference in, & stode wel for all commers to haue accesse vnto them, they all toke vp their lodgings ther. MarginaliaAn oration gratulatory at their cōming thyther.At their comming thyther an oratiō was made by a felow of þe house, who in the name of all the rest with long protestation declared that they wer most heartely welcome thither, and that he and his fellowes gaue thē great thanks, that it had pleased their Lordships to haue so good opinion of them, as to chose their house in especially to lodge in, wherby they had both encoraged them to stād

in hope of some further beneuolence towardes thē, & also done great worship to theyr college by their being ther: wherfore they should loke at their hand again for as much duety & reuerence, as lay in theyr power to performe. Watson made aunswer, that this forward and earnest good willes and minde of theirs, in doing such curtesy, was right thankfully taken, both of him & his, exhorting them to continue stedfastly in the same, & to procede also when nede should require: for it was so farre from any of their thoughts, to stop thē in this their race, þt they would rather hast them forward to runne through more spedily, being not without good cause perswaded to conceiue good hope of their beneuolence towards them, inasmuch as they would do for them, whatsoeuer myght turn to their profit and commodity.

MarginaliaIanuarye 9 MarginaliaNothyng done the first day of the visitors commyng.This day, forasmuch as it was toward euening ere they came, and the sunne was goyng down, was nothing els done. MarginaliaIanuary. 10 MarginaliaS. maries and S. Micaels interdited.The next day being the tenth of Ianuary, they bestowed in recreating themselues after their iourney, and in setting other things at a stay. Neuerthelesse to thentent the same should not escape altogether without doing of somwhat, they interdited the 2. churches, namely, sainct Maries, wher Martin Bucer. and sainct Michaels, wher Paulus Phagius lay buried.

[Back to Top]

These men wer dead a good while before. Paulus Phagius hadde scarce yet shewed the profe of his wit and learnyng, when he departed to God. Bucer liued a few yeares after. During which time somwhat by writing, but chiefly by reading & preaching openly (wherin the old man being paynfull in the worde of God, neuer spared himself nor regarded his helth) he brought al mē into such admiratiō of him, that neyther his frendes could sufficiently prayse hym, neyther his enemies in any point fynde fault with his singuler lyfe & sincere doctrine. A most certayn token wherof may be his sumptuous burial, solemnised with so great assistēce and gladnes of al the degrees of thuniuersity, that it was not possible to deuyse more to the setting out and amplifying of the same. The whole maner and ordre of the doing wherof, being written by Nicolas Carre, a lerned mā in a litle treatise to the right worshipful sir Ihō Cheke knight, with an Epistle full of cōsolatyon as cōcernyng his departure added thereunto, was sent vnto the renoumed clarke Peter Martyr, then abidyng at Oxford. Frō the burial of Bucer and Phagius, vnto the cōmyng of these Cōmissyoners wer passed about three or 4. yeares more or lesse. And frō the tyme þt that blessed king, king Edward the. vi. deceased, vnto þt day, the priestes neuer ceassed to celebrate theyr Masses, and all other kynde of Ceremomies in those places, and þt without scruple of conscyence, as farre as men coulde perceyue.
