Commentary  *  Close

Note that a typographical error appeared here in the 1570 edition. The 1563 edition reads 'xxii' articles; all subsequent editions read 'xii' articles.

articles, many whereof because they containe onely questions of the profession and religion of that age, wherein both he and his parentes were christned (which in sundry places are already mencioned) I do here for breuitye sake omyt: minding to touche suche of them onely, as pertaine to matters of faith now in controuersy, and then chiefly obiected against the martyrs and Saintes of God, which in effect are these.

Marginalia1.First, that thou Iohn Rowgh diddest directly speake against the. vii. sacramentes, vsed commonly and reuerentlye, as thinges of estimation and great worthynes in the catholike church: and also dyddest reproue and condemne the substance of the said sacramentes, but especially thou hast mislyked and directly spoken agaynst the sacrament of the altar, affirming that in the same ther is not really and truly the very body and bloud of Christ. And that confession to the priest, and absolution geuen by him (as þe minister of Christ) for sinnes is not necessary or auailable in any wyse.

[Back to Top]

Marginalia2.Item, thou hast myslyked and reproued the religion and ecclesiastical seruice, as it is now vsed in this realme, and hast allowed the religion and seruice vsed in the latter yeares of king Edward the. vi. and so muche as in thee hath layne, hast by word, writing, and deede, set forwardes, taught, and preached the same openly, and in sundry places, affirming, saying, and teaching, that the sayd Englishe seruice and doctrine therein contained, is agreable in al pointes to Gods word, and vnto the truth, condemning vtterly the latyne seruice now vsed in the Quenes reign, and inducing other by thyne example to do the lyke.

[Back to Top]

Marginalia3.Item, thou hast in sundry places within this realme commended and approued the opinion and doctrine of Thomas Cranmer, late archbishop of Canterbury, Nicholas Rydley, and Hugh Latimer, concerninge the sacrament of the altar, affirminge that in the Sacrament there remaineth after the wordes of consecration material bread, and material wine, with out any transubstantiation.

[Back to Top]

Marginalia4.Item, thou haste in sondrye places of thys realme, synce the Quenes reygne, ministred and receiued the Communion as it was vsed

in the late dayes of kyng Edwarde the syxte, and thou knowest, or credibly hast heard of diuers, that yet do kepe bookes of the sayde Communion, and vse the same in priuat houses oute of the churche, and are of opinion against the sacrament of the altar.

Marginalia5.Item, that thou in sundrye places of thys Realme and els where, wythin thyne owne country, hast spoken against þe Pope of Rome and his Apostolick sea, and hast playnlye contemned & despised the authoritye of the same, myslyking and not allowing the faith and doctrine therof, but directly speaking agaynst it, & by thine example hast induced other the subiectes of this realme, to speake and do the like.

[Back to Top]

Marginalia6.Item, thou doest knowe, and hast bene conuersāt with al, or a great part of such English men as haue fled out of this realme for religion, and hast consented and agreed with them in their opinions, and hast succoured, mayntained and helped them, and hast bene a conueyer of their sedicious letters and bookes in to thys realme.

[Back to Top]

Marginalia7.Item, that thou hast said, that thou hast bene at Rome, and taryed there aboute. xxx. dayes or more, and that thou hast sene lytle good or none there, but verye muche euyll. Amongest the which thou sawest one great abhomination, that is to say, a man (or the Pope) þt should go on the ground, to be caried vpon the shoulders of foure men, as though he had ben God and no man. Also, a Cardinal to haue his harlot rydyng openly behinde hym. And thirdlye a Popes Bull that gaue expresse lycence to haue and vse the stewes, and to keepe open bawdrye by the Popes approbation and authority.

[Back to Top]

Marginalia8.Item, that thou sithens thy last comming into England, out of the parties beyonde the sea, hast at sundry tymes and places perniciously allured and comforted diuers of the subiectes of this realme, both yong and old, men and women, to haue and vse the boke of Communion, set foorth in this realme, in the latter dayes of kyng Edward the sixt, & hast also thy selfe red and set forth the same, causynge others to do the lyke, and to leaue their comming to their parish churches, to heare the latine seruice now vsed.

[Back to Top]

Marginalia9.Item, that thou the third sonday of Aduent the xii. day of this December 1557. wast apprehended at the Sarracins hed at Islington, in the county of Middelsexe and dioces of London, by the Quenes vicechamberleyne, wyth one Cutberte a taylour, Hugh a hosier, and diuers other there assembled, vnder the colour of hearing a play to haue redde the communion booke, and to haue vsed the accustomed fashion, as it was in the later dayes of kinge Edwarde the sixt.
