For the vine tree planted by God and Christ our Sauiour, is his people. Hæc Iust.

¶ To comprehend the names and number of all the Martyrs that suffered in all these ten persecutions (which are innumerable) as it is vnpossible, so it is hard in such varietie and diuersitie of matter, to keepe such a perfect order and course of yeares and times, that either some be not left out, or that euery one bee reduced into his right place, especially seeing the Authors themselues, whome in this present worke we follow, doe diuersly disagree, both in the tymes, in the names, and also in the kynd of Martyrdome of them that suffered. MarginaliaDisagreement in authors touching the liues and tymes of Martyrs.As for example, where the common reading and opinion of the Church, and the Epistles Decretall doe take Anacletus to succeed after Clement, next before Euaristus. Contrary Eusebius, Lib. 3. & Lib. 5. cap. 6. making no mention of Cletus, but of Anacletus, sayth that Euaristus succeeded next to Clement. Likewise Ruffinus and Epiphanius, speakyng nothyng of Anacletus, make mention of Linus MarginaliaLinus Byshop of Rome.and of Cetus, next before Clement, but say nothing of Anacletus, whereby it may appeare that Cletus and Anacletus were one. MarginaliaCletus and Anacletus both one.Sabellicus Ænead. 7. Lib. 2. speaketh of Linus and of Cletus, and sayth that they were ordained helpers vnder Peter, while he laboured in his Apostleship abroad, and so sayth also Marianus Scotus. Contrary Irenæus Lib. 3. contra Hæres. speaketh of Anacletus, making no mention of Cletus. Wherby it may appeare by the way, what credite is to be geuen to the Decretall Epistles whom all the latter hystories of the Popes Church do follow in this behalfe, &c. Moreouer, where Antoninus, Vincentius, Iacobus in Supplemento, Symoneta, Aloysius, with other, declare of Linus, Cletus, Clemens, Anacletus, Euaristus, Alexander, bishops of Rome, that they died Martyrs. Eusebius in his Ecclesiasticall history writing of them, maketh therof no mention.

[Back to Top]

And first as touching Clement MarginaliaClement Byshop counted a Martyr.(whom Marianus Scotus calleth the first Bishop of Rome after Peter) they say that he was sent out in banishment of Traianus, beyond Ponticus, with 2000. christians, where he opened to them a welspring, whiche in the wildernesse were condemned to the Mines. Afterward being accused to the Emperor, he was throwne into the sea with a Milstone fastened about his necke, and that not long after his body was cast vp & buried (as Platina saith) at the place where the Wel was made. Some say it was found first in the dayes of Pope Nicholas the first, Fascicul. tempor. But forasmuch as I finde of his Martyrdome no firme relation in the auncient authors, but onely in such new writers of latter tymes, which are woont to painte out the liues and histories of good men, with fained additions of forged miracles, MarginaliaThe liues of Martyrs paynted out with fayned miracles.therfore I count the same of lesse credite, as I do also certaine Decretall Epistles, vntruely (as may seeme) ascribed and intituled to his name. Eusebius in his third booke, writing of Clemens, geueth no more of him, but thus: After he had gouerned the Church of Rome ix. yeares, the sayd Clement left þe succession thereof to Euaristus.

[Back to Top]

Of which Euaristus next Bishop of Rome, MarginaliaEuaristus Byshoppe of Rome and martyr.thus we find in Irenæus, Lib 3. cap. 3. Peter and Paule (sayth he) cōmitted the charge of that church to Linus. After whom came Anacletus, then succeeded Clemens, next to Clemens followed Euaristus, after whome came Alexander, and then Sixtus the vj. Bishop of Rome after the Apostles. After Sixtus sate Telesphorus, then Higinus, then Pius, then Anicetus. And when Soter tooke the place after hym, then the xij Bishop of Rome was Eleutherius. Thus after Clement followed (as is sayd) Euaristus in the second or third yeare of Traianus as sayth Eusebius, or as Nicephorus sayth, the fourth yeare of the sayd Emperour. But howsoeuer the counte of the yeares stand, little or nothing remayneth of the Actes and Monuments either of this, or of other Bishops of Rome in those dayes. Whereby it may appeare that no great accompt was then made of Romain Bishops in those dais, whose actes and deedes were then either so lightly reputed, or so slenderly committed to history. Notwithstanding certaine Decretal Epistles MarginaliaThe decretall Epistles.are remayning, or rather thrust vpon vs in their names, containing in them litle substance of any doctrine, but all together stuffed with lawes, iniunctions, and stately decrees, little to the purpose, and less sauoring of the nature of that time then present. Amongest whō are nūbred the two epistles of this Euaristus. And when he had geuen these orders, & had made vi. Priestes,two Deacons, and fiue Byshops, for sondry places (sayth the story,) he suffered Martyrdome, but what kinde of death, for what cause he suffred, what constancy he shewed, what was the order or conuersation of hys life, is nothing touched, and seemeth therefore the more to be doubted that which our new historyes do say: because the olde auncient writers haue no remembraunce thereof, which otherwise would not haue passed such thinges ouer in silence, if they had bene true. Agayne, neyther do the authors fully agree in the tyme of hys martyrdome, MarginaliaNaucl ge. 4 Platina. Volateran Anthropo. Lib. 22. Euseb. Lib. 3. Cap. 24.which Nauclerus witnesseth to be in the last yere of Traianus: but Platina thinketh rather that he suffered vnder Hadrianus: Fascicul temporum, referreth it to the third yeare of Hadrian, Volateranus, to the begynning of the reigne of Hadrian, Contrary, Eusebius comming neare to the simple trueth (as seemeth) doth affirme that Euaristus succeeded Clement in the third yeare of Traianus, and so geuing to him. ix. yeares, it should follow thereby that Euaristus deceased the xii. yeare of Trianus.

After whome succeeded next Alexander, MarginaliaAlexander Byshop of Rome and Martyr.in the gouernaunce of that Church, of whose tyme & death the like discrepance is among the writers, MarginaliaAuthors disagree.Marianus Scotus, sayth, he was the fourth Byshop from Peter, but that could not be. Some say he was the sixt & some the vii. but they likewise were deceiued. For the most part all do graunt Sixtus to be the vi. Damasus affirmeth that hee was in the reigne of Traiane. And how can that be, when the sayd Damasus affirmed before that Euaristus hys predecessour suffered in the last yeare of Traiane, and then the Byshopricke stood at least a moneth voyde, except hee meane that the sayd Alexander succeeded Euaristus in the last yeare of Traianus? But then how can that stand with Bede and Marianus Scotus, which say, that he suffered vnder Traianus, or with Otto Frisingensis, which sayth he suffered the fourth yeare of Hadrian, whē he had bene Byshop ten yeares, by the generall consent of most writers?

They which write of the deedes and doynges of thys blessed Byshop, as Bergomensis, Antoninus, Equelinus and such as follow them, declare that he had conuerted a great part of the Senators to the fayth of Christ, amongst whom was Hermes a great man in Rome, whose sonne being dead, Alexander raysed agayne to lyfe, and likewise restored sight to hys mayd being blinde. Hadrian the Emperour then absent hearing this, sent word to Aurelianus gouernour of Rome, to apprehend Alexander, with Euentius and Theodulus, otherwised called Theodorus, as Platina sayth, hys two Deacons, and Hermes, and to commit them to warde with Quirinus the Tribune: whiche being done as their story recordeth, Alexander inclosed in a diuers prison from Hermes. MarginaliaAlexander. Euentius. Theodulus. Hermes with hys houshold.

Thus then sayth the story, about the second yeare of Hadrian, Aurelianus the ruler tooke Alexander the Byshop, with Hermes, hys wife children, and hys whole houshold, to the number of a M,CC.L. and threw them in prison. And not long after the sayd Alexander with Euentius his Deacon, and Hermes and the rest were burned in a fornace, Theodulus an other Deacon of Alexnder, seeyng and rebuking the crueltie of the tyrant, suffered also the same Martyrdome.
