Marginalia5.To the fyft article he beleueth that he hath beleued, and taught, he hath spoken openly & to his power mainteined, and he doth beleue, thinke, mainteyne, and defend that the verye true receauing and eatinge of Christes bodye and bloud is onely to take material breade to breake it, & to distribute it amōgest the people, remembring therby the passion and death of Christ, and that he so receauing the same material bread and wyne, receiueth by fayth the body and bloud of Christ spiritually, but not the substaunce of the natural body and bloud of Christ.

Marginalia6.To the sixt article, he beleueth that thys article conteineth in yt the truth, sauing that he beleueth that the Pater noster and the crede vsed in the Masse is also good.

Marginalia7.To the seuenth article he aunswereth, and beleueth the contentes of the same to be true

Ihon Ardley.

THus these articles being to them obiected and there aunswers made vnto the same, as before, the Byshop accordinge to the olde trade of his consistorye court, respited them to the afternoone, bydding them to make there appearance the said daye and place, betwene the houres of two and thre. At what tyme the sayd Byshop, repeting agayn the said articles vnto them, and beginning with Ihon Ardley dyd vrge & solicitate, according to his maner of wordes to recant. To whom Iohn Ardley agayne constantlye standing to his professed religiō, gaue answer in wordes as foloweth: MarginaliaThe wordes of Ihō Ardley to Boner.My Lorde, quod he, nether you, nor any other of your religion is of the Catholike Churche for you be of a false faith: And I doute not but you shalbe deceaued at length: beare as good face as ye can, ye will kyll the inocent blood, and you haue kylled manye, and you goo aboute to kyll more, &c. And added farther saing: if euery heare of my heade were a man, I woulde suffer deathe in the opinion and faith that I am nowe in. These with manye other wordes he spake. Then the bishop yet demaūding if he would relinquish his erronious opinions (as hee calleth them) and bee reduced again to þe vnity of the church, he answered as foloweth: No, God forshielde that I shoulde do so: for then I should lose my soule.

After this, the said Iohn Ardeley beyng asked by the bishop (after hys formal maner) yf he knew anye cause why he shoulde not haue sentence condemnatory againste him, MarginaliaIohn Ardley, & Iohn Symson cōdempned.so read the condempnation against Ardley, and likewyse against Symson standing likewyse in the same cause and constancy with Ihon Ardley, & so were they both cōmitted to the secular power, that is to the hands of the shriffes. Whervpon letters certificatorie were writēby the saide Byshop to the King and Quene the saide. xxv. day of Maye, concernynge the

condemnation of them bothe, as the manner of the Byshops is to do. Vpon the which daie there was an other letter also directed from the King and Quene to the said bishop in the forenone, concerning the strayght handling of these & such other true seruauntes of the Lord, the coppy of which letter here insueth.

¶ To the right reuerēd in God our right trusty and welbeloued, the Byshoppe of London.

RIght reuerend father in God, right trustye and welbeloued, we greete you well. And where of late we addressed our letters to the Iustices of peace, within euery of þe counties of thys our Realme, whereby amongest other instructions geuen them for the good order and quiet gouernment of the Countrye aboute them, they are wylled to haue a speciall regarde vnto such disordred persons, as forgetting their dutyes towardes God and vs, do leane to any erronious and heretical opinions, refusing to shew them selues conformable to the Catholicke religion of Christes churche, wherein if they cannot by good admonitions and fayre meanes reforme, they are wylled to delyuer them to the Ordinary, to be by hym charitably trauayled with al, and remoued (if it may be) from their noughty opiniōs: or els if they continue obstinate, to be ordred according to the lawes prouided in that behalfe: Vnderstanding now, to our no lytle maruayle, that diuers of the said disordred persons, being by the Iustices of the peace for their contempt & obstinacye, brought to the Ordinaries, to be vsed as is aforesayde, are eyther refused to be receiued at their hands, or if they be receiued, are neyther so trauayled wyth, as Christian charity requireth, nor yet proceeded wyth all according to the order of Iustice, but are suffred to continue in their errours, to the dishonor of almighty God, and daungerous example of others, lyke as we finde thys matter very straunge, so haue thought conueniēt both, to signify this our knowledge, and ther with also to admonish you to haue in thys behalfe suche regarde henceforth to the office of a good Pastor and byshop, as when any such offenders shalbe by the sayde officers or Iustices of peace broughte vnto you, you do vse your good wisedome and discretion in procuring to remoue them from their errours if it it may be, or els in proceding against them (if they shal continue obstinate) according to the order of the lawes: so as throughe your good furtherance, both Gods glory maye be better aduaunced, and the cōmon wealth more quietly gouerned. Yeuen vnder our signet, at our honor of Hampton court, the. xxiiii. of Maye the first and second yeres of our raignes.
