MarginaliaIanuary. 15.To the signing wherof a congregatiō was eftsoones called of all the Graduates of the Vniuersitie agaynst the next day, which there beyng red ouer, a new grace agayne was asked and graūted for settyng to the seale. Then were the Graduates dismissed with commaūdemēt to resort forthwith to S. Mary church, whether the Commissioners also repayred. MarginaliaD Haruey presēteth a Mandate frō þe Cardinall.When they had taken their places, Doct. Haruy presented to them before all the company, a new Commission to make enquest vpon heresie, then newly sent from the Cardinal, which was red immediatly by Vincent of Noally, Ormanets Clarke. This done, Doct. Perne (who as ye heard, was factour for the Vniuersitie) exhibited to the Commissioners in the name of the Vniuersitie, the sētence of the foresayd condemnation. The copie and tenour wherof, hereafter (God willing) shal folow. This condemnation beyng openly red, MarginaliaD. Perne maketh petition that Bucer and Phagius may be cited to the Court.then Doct. Perne aforesaid desired to send out processe to cite Bucer and Phagius to appeare, or any other that would take vpō them to pleade their cause, & to stand to the order of the Court against þe next Monday: to the intent that when they had exhibited thē selues, the Court might the better determine what ought to be done to them by order of law.

The Commissioners condescended to his request, MarginaliaIanuary. 16.and the next day processe went out to cite the offendours. MarginaliaM. Bucer & Paulus cited out of their graues to appeare, or any other that would aunswere for them.This citation Vincent of Noally their commō Notarie, hauyng first read it ouer before certaine witnesses appoynted for the same purpose, caused to bee fixed vp in places conuenient, to witte, vpon S. Marie church doore, the doore of the common Scholes, and the crosse in the marketsteade of the same towne. In this was specified, that who soeuer would mainteyne Bucer and Phagius, or stand in defense of their doctrine, should at the xviij. day of the same moneth stand forth before the L. Commissioners in S. Mary church, which was appointed the place of iudgement, and there euery man should be sufficiently heard what he could say. This commaundement was set out with many wordes.

Shortly after, the matter drew toward iudgement. Therefore the next day before the day limited, which was the xvij. of Ianuary, MarginaliaIanuary. 17. the Vicechauncellour called to hym to Peterhouse (wherof he was Maister.) Doct. Yong, Doct. Segiswyke, and with them Bullocke, Tayler, Parker, and Redman, Whitlocke, Mytch, and certaine others. These mē cast their heades together how they might beare witnes agaynst Bucer and Phagius, to conuince them of heresie. For seyng the matter was brought in face of open Court, and because it might so come to passe, that some Patrones of their cause would come out, they thought it nedefull to haue witnesses to depose of their doctrine. What came of this their consultation, it is not perfectly knowen.

MarginaliaIanuary. 18.The xviij. day the Vicechaūcellour going to the Inquisitours sittyng at the kinges Colledge, did put them in remembraunce, that the same was the day in which by their processe sent forth the xvj. day before, they had commaunded to appeare in S. Mary Church such as would take vpon them to defend Bucer and Phagius by the law. He desired therfore that they would vouchsafe to sit there, if perchaunce any man would trie the aduenture of the law. They lightly condescended therunto. When the Vicechauncellour had brought them thether, he exhibited vnto them the processe of the Citation which he had receiued of them to publishe a litle before, saying that he had diligētly executed what soeuer the contentes of the same required.

that they had taken their places, and that no man put forth hym selfe to aunswere for the offendours, the iudges called aside MarginaliaOther witnesses sworne agaynst M. Bucer.Doct. Yong, Doct. Segiswike, Bullocke, Tayler, Maptide, Hunter, Parker, Redman, aboue mentioned. Also Browne, Gogman, Rud, Iohnson, Mytch, Rauen and Carre, who had before written out the buriall of Bucer, with a singular commēdation of hym, and sent it to Syr Iohn Cheke Knight. These men taking first their othe vpon a booke, were cōmaunded to beare witnesse agaynst the heresies & doctrine of Bucer & Phagius. The xxij. day of þe same moneth was limited to this iury to bring in their verdicte.

In the meane while, Ormanet and Doct. Watson abode at home in their lodgyng, to take the depositiōs of them whom we shewed you before to haue bene called to Peterhouse, and to haue communicated with the Vicechauncellour as cōcernyng that matter, whose depositions (as I told you) neuer came to light. The Byshop of Chester and Doct. Cole this day visited them of Katherine Hall, where, as farre as could be learned, nothyng was done worthy of rehearsall.

MarginaliaA Relicke geuen by Ormanet to Trinitie Colledge.As Ormanet the Popes Datary was sitting at Trinitie Colledge, Iohn Dale, one of the Queenes Colledge, came to hym, whom he had commaunded before to bryng with hym the pixe, wherein the Byshop of Romes God of bread is wont to be enclosed. For Ormanet told thē he had a precious iewell: the same was a linnen clout that the Pope had consecrated with hys owne hands, which he promised to bestow vpon them for a gift. But Dale misuderstandyng Ormanet, in stede of the pixe brought a chalice and a singyng cake, called the hoste, the which he had wrapped vp and put in his bosome. When he was come, Ormanet demaūded if he had brought him the thing he sent him for. To whō he aunswered, he had brought it. Thē geue it me (quoth he). Dale pulled out the chalice and the singyng cake. MarginaliaOrmanet in a pelting chafe with M. Dale.When Ormanet saw that, he stepped somewhat backe as it had bene in a wonder, callyng hym blockhead, & litle better then a mad man, demaundyng what he ment by those thynges, saying: he wylled hym to bryng none of that gere, and that he was vnworthy to enioy so hygh a benefite: yet notwithstandyng for as much as he had promised before to geue it them, he would performe hys promise. Wherupon with great reuerēce and Ceremony he pulled out the linnen cloth and layd it in the chalice, and the bread with it, commaundyng them both for the holynes of the thyng, and also for the authour of it, to keepe it among them with such due reuerence as belonged to so holy a relique.

MarginaliaA commaundement for bringing in of hereticall bookes.About þe same time the Cōmissioners had geuen cōmaundement to the Maisters of the Colledges, that euery man should put in writyng what bookes he had, with the authours names. And to the intent that euery mā should execute it without deceit, they tooke a corporall othe of them. This commaundement some executed exactly and diligently: other some, for as much as they demed it wrongfull, executed it slackely enough.

We declared before that the xviij. day was limited for the day of iudgement. Whē the day came, and that neither Bucer nor Phagius would appeare at their call in the Court, nor that any put forth him selfe to defend them: yet the courtuous Commissioners woulde not procede to iudgemēt, which neuerthelesse, for their contumacy in absentyng them selues, they might haue done, consideryng how that day was peremptory. MarginaliaGraciously considered. But these men beyng bent altogether to equitie and mercy, had rather shew some fauour, then to do the vttermost they might by the law. MarginaliaMartin Bucer, and Paulus Phagius the second tyme cited to appeare.Wherupon Vincent published the second proces, and set it vp in the same places, as in maner before. The meanyng therof varied not much from the first, but that it put of the iudgement day vnto the xxvj. of the same moneth. Vpon the which day the Vicechauncellour was sent for to their lodgyng, with whom they agreed concernyng the order of publishing the sentence. And because there should want no solēp-
