Actes and Monumentes Of the Church

gius, or stand in defense of their doctrine, shuld at the xviii. day of the same moneth stand forth before the L. Commissioners in Saint Mary churche, which was appointed the place of iudgement, and there euery man should bee sufficiently heard what he could saye. This commaundement was set out with many wordes.

Shortlye after the matter drewe towarde iudgemente. Therefore the daye before the daye limited, whiche was the xvii. of Ianuary, the Vicechaūcellor called to him to Peterhouse, of the whiche he was maister, MarginaliaWitnesses sworne against Bucer.D. Yong, Doctor Segiswyke, and with them Bullocke, Tayler, Parker, and Redman, not they which at the buriall of Bucer preached honourablye of hym, but farre other men, Whitlock, Myche and certain others. These men cast their heads together how they might beare witnes against Bucer and Phagius, to conuince them of heresie. For seing the matter was brought in face of open Court, and it might so come to passe, they might finde Patrones of their case, they thought it nedeful to haue wytnesses to depose of their doctrine: what came of this their consultation it is not perfectly knowen.

The Commissioners 

Commentary  *  Close

The account of the commissioners' dinner was dropped from the 1570 edition, probably because it was too parochial and focused on Cambridge to interest Foxe.

MarginaliaThe regard that the inquisitors had of the charges of the Colleges. (for they were marueylous conscionable men in all their doyngs) had great regarde in their expenses of euery College where they should make inquisitiō. Wherfore to the entent that none of theim shoulde stretche their liberalitie beyond measure, or aboue their power, they gaue charge at the beginning, that there should not in any place bee prepared for their repast aboue three kindes of meate at the moste. The like order the Cardinall him selfe, in a certayne prouincial Synod appointed in his dietes a litle before to all his priestes and Chaplaines.

Therefore, when they came to the kynges College the xviii. daye to sitte vpon enquirie, and that one Capon chaunced to be serued to the table more than was prescribed by thorder taken, they thrust it away in great displeasure. These thriuing men that were so sore moued for the preparing of one Capon, within lytle more then one moneth, besyde their priuate refectiōs, wasted in their daily diet well nighe an hundred poūdes of the common charges of the Colleges. So that the Vniuersitie may worthely alledge against theim this saying of our sauiour. Wo vnto you that streine out a Gnat, and swallowe vp a Camel.

The very same day the Vicechaūcellor going in to the inquisitours (that were as I told you at the kynges College) did put them in remembraunce, that the same was the daye in whiche by their processe sent foorth the xvi. daye, they had commaunded to appeare in saint Marye churche suche as would take vpon theim to defende Bucer and Phagius in the lawe. He desired therfore that they wold vouchesafe to sit

there, if perchaunce any man would trie thaduenture of the lawe. They lyghtly condiscended thereunto. When the Vicechauncelour according to his dutie, had brought them thether he exhibited vnto theim the proces of Citation that he had receiued of them to publyshe a little before, saying that he had diligently executed what soeuer the contentes of the same required. After that they had taken their places, and that no man put forth him selfe to aunswere for thoffendours, the iudges called aside Doctor Yong, Doctor Segiswyke, Bullock, Tayler, Maptide, Hunter, Parker, Redman, whō we named before, MarginaliaOther witnesses sworne against Bucer.Browne, Gogman, Rud, Ihonson, Mytche, Rauen, and Carre, the very same man that had before wrytten out the buriall of Bucer, with a singular commendation of hym, and sent it to the ryght worshipfull sir Iohn Cheke knyght. These men taking fyrst their othe vpon a booke, were commaunded to bear witnesse against the heresies and doctrine of Bucer and Phagius. The xxii. daye of the same moneth was limited to this iury to bring in their verdit.

[Back to Top]

In the meane whyle, Ornamet and Watson abode at home in their lodging, to take the depositions of them whom we shewed you before to haue been called to Peterhouse, and to haue communicated with the Vicechauncellour as concerning that matter, whose depositions (as I told you) neuer came to lyght. The Byshop of Westchester and Cole this day visited theim of Catherin hall, where as farre as I could learne, nothyng was done worthy of rehersall.

[Back to Top]

As Ornamet was sytting at Trinitie College, Iohn Dale, one of the Quenes College, came to hym, whome he had commaunded before to bryng with him the pyxe, wherein the Byshop of Romes God of bread is wont to be enclosed. MarginaliaA relique geuen by Ornamet to Trinitie College.For Ormanet told them he had a precious iewel: the same was a linnen clout that the Pope had cōsecrated with his own hands, whiche he promysed to bestowe vpon them for a gifte. But Dale misvnderstanding Ornamet, in stede of the pixe brought a chalyce and a synging cake, called þe hoste, the which he had wrapped vp and put in his bosome. When he was come, Ornamet spake him courteouslye, demaunding if he had brought him the thyng he sent him for: to whome he answered he had brought it: then geue it me (quod he). Dale pulled out the chalice and the synging cake. Whē Ornamet sawe that, he stepped somwhat back as it had been in a wonder, callyng him blockhead, and litle better then a mad man, demaunding what he ment by those thynges, sayinge: he wylled him to bryng none of that gere, and that he was vnworthy to enioye so hyghe a benefite: yet notwithstanding for as muche as he had promysed before to geue it thē, he wold
