and hurtfull than those that are gyltie of treason, should abyde lyke iudgement. When they were buried, orations were made before the degrees of the Vniuersitie, and sermōs preached to the people: the lyke thing nowe also, when they shalbe burned, doe we purpose to haue. Nowe because I vnderstande that thou art an expert oratour, and canst handle thy self wel in that feate, I would chose thee before al others to doe the thing, the whiche (for as muche as it shalbe greatly to thy prayse and commendacion) I knowe thou wylt not refuse to take vpō thee. And for my part I assure thee, I haue the gladlier called thee hereunto, because I couet thy preferment. There is but one in al thuniuersitie, that when he was a young man was my pupill, Nic. Carre by name, whome for the good wyll I beare him in that respecte, I wyll ioyne fellowe with thee in this matter, to thintent thou mayest well perceiue thereby, þt I committe this charge vnto thee to doe thee honour. The man hauing this his Oration in mistrust, aunswered the this wyse. He wyshed with all his hart, that in iudgement as concerning this case, shoulde bee reserued to his betters, saying that he was not desirous of that honour. for men would not geue credit to his wordes, neyther was he able to deuise what to saye against so worthy a persone, inespecially that myght seme to haue any likelihod in that behalf. For he knewe not the mans liuing and conuersation. But as farre as he could gather by other mens talke, he was a man of such integritie and purenes of liuing, that not euen his enemies could fynde any thing blame worthy in him. As for his doctrine, it passed his power to iudge of it, howsoeuer he were demed to bee of a corrupt religion, wherof he was not able to determine, considering it was a doubtfull question among so great learned clerkes. But this was manifestly apparant, that Bucer vndoubtedly was a man of singular knowledge and dexteritie of wytte, the whiche for him to abase he thought it an vntollerable vnshamefastnesse.

Finally, for thestimation of so weyghtie a matter it was requisite to put some meter persones to the defense of it. For neither in years was he graue and auncient enough, neither in wytte prompt nor ready enough, neyther in eloquence sufficientlye furnished to take that matter vpon him. And if so be it that he were able to do any good, he myght serue their turn in an other matter. The byshop was still more earnest vpon him: and when he sawe it auailed not to vse this kinde of persuasion with him, he fell into a rage, and at length bewrayed him selfe and all his pretense. For all this earnest entreataunce was not to haue had him saye somewhat agaynst Bucer, (albeit it was parte of his desyre as occasion shoulde serue) but to

thintent, that suche as he suspected for religiō, should speake against them selues. And therefore he added moreouer, saying: thou at his burial diddest blaze and set him out marueilously with Epitaphes & sententious meters. wherefore now also thou shalt neither wil nor chose but speake in the contrarie part: and this to doe I streightly charge thee in myne owne name, & in the name of my fellowe Commissioners. After many wordes, thother aunswered that no man was able to shewe any thing of his doyng: and if any could be brought before hym, he would condiscende to satisfie their pleasure: otherwyse he would not by any meanes be induced to speake against him. At length when none of his wrytinges could be shewed, the bishop desisted from his purpose.

By this tyme the sentence of condemnatiō was engrossed againe, to the signing wherof a congregatiō was eftsones called of al the Graduates of the Vniuersitie, against the. xv. of Ianuary. After it had beene red ouer, the matter was moued for setting to of the seale agayne, as we sayd before, the which was by and by obteyned. Then the Graduates were dismissed with commaundement to resort forth with to saynt Mary churche, whether the Commissioners also repayred. Whē they had taken their places, MarginaliaHaruy presenteth a mandatū frō the Cardinall.Doctor Haruie presented to them before all the companie, a cōmission to make enquest vpon heresie, then newly sent from the Lorde Cardinall, the whiche Vincent of Noally, Ormanets secretary, red with a loude voyce, that all men myght heare it. This done Andrewe Perne, who we told you before was authorised to be factour for the Vniuersitie, exhibited to the Commissioners in the name of the Vniuersitie the sentence of condemnation. MarginaliaPerne maketh petitiō that Bucer and Phagius may be cited to the court.The whiche beyng openly redde, he desired to sende out processe to cite Bucer and Phagius to appeare, or any other that would take vpon thē to pleade their case, and to stande to thorder of the court the third daye after: to thyntent that when they had exhibited thē selues, the Court myght the better determine what ought to be done to them by the order of the lawe. The sentence by the commō aduice and consent of the degrees he affirmed him selfe to haue pronoūced in the open assemblie, as the order of lawe requyred.

The Commissioners condiscended to his request, and the next daye processe went out to cite thoffendours. MarginaliaThe first Citation.This citation Vincent of Noally their common Notarie, hauinge first red it ouer before certayne wytnesses, appointed for the same purpose, caused to be stycked vp in places conuenient, that is to wete, vpon S.
