to be had the morowe folowyng, and that the Doctours of Cambridge should be incorporate in the Vniuersitie of Oxforde, and lykewyse that the Doctours of Oxforde shoulde bee incorporate in the Vniuersitye of Cambridge.

MarginaliaApryll. 14 On Saterdaye (beyng the. xiiii. of Apryll) at eight of the clocke, the foresayde Vicechancellour of Cambridge with the other Doctors of the same Vniuersitie, repaired to Lincolne college againe, and founde the Prolocutour aboue in a Chappel, with the commpanye of the house singing Requiem Masse, and taried ther vntyll the ende. Then they consultyng altogether in the maysters lodgynge, aboute. ix. of the clocke came all to the vniuersity church, saynct Maryes, and there, after short consultation in a Chappell, the Vicechauncellor, Prolocutor &c. of Oxforde, caused the Vicechancelloure of Cambridge and the reste of the Doctours of that Vniuersitye, to sende for theyr scarlet coapes, 

Commentary  *  Close

One change appears to have been a typographical error: 'coapes' [copes] in 1563 (p. 937) became 'roabes' [robes] (1570, p. 1592; 1576, p. 1358; 1583, p. 1429).

brought from Cambridge, saue that Doctour Seton and Watson borowed of the Oxford mē: and in this tyme, the Regents in the congregation house, had graunted all the Cambridge Doctours theyr graces, to bee incorporate there, and so they wēt vp and wer admitted immediateye, Doctour Oglethorp presenting them, and the Proctour reading the statute, & geuing them theyr othes. That done they came all into the Quere, and there helde the conuocation of the Vniuersitie, being gremials. 
Commentary  *  Close

Foxe also omitted the words 'being gremials' (cf. 1563, p. 937 with 1570, p. 1592; 1576, p. 1358; 1583, p. 1429).

They had masse of the holy ghost solemly song in prickesong, by the Quere menne of Christes church. But fyrst the cause of the cōuocation was opened in English, partly by þe Vicechauncellour, and partely by the Prolocutour, declarynge that they were sente by the Quene, and wherefore they were sente: and caused mayster Say the Register, openlye to reade the Commission: and that done the Vycechauncellour redde Cambridge letters openly, and then concluded that thre Notaries, (mayster Say for the Conuocation, a Bedle of Cambridge for that Vniuersitie, and one maister White for Oxforde) should testifye of theyr doyng: and then wylled the sayde Notaryes to prouide parchement, that the whole assemblye mighte subscribe to the articles, saue those that had subscribed before in the conuocation house at London, and Cambridge: And so the Vicechauncellour began fyrst: after him the rest of Thoxford men, as many as could in the Masse tyme.

The Masse beyng done, they wente in procession: First the Quere, in theyr surplices folowed the crosse, then the first yere Regentes,

and Proctours: Then the Doctours of lawe, and theyr Bedle before them. Then the Doctours of Diuinitie of both Vniuersities intermingled, the Diuinitie and art Bedels going before them: the Vicechancellour and the Prolocutour goyng together. After them Bachelers of Diuinitie, Regentes, & non Regentes in theyr arraye: and laste of all the bachelers of Law, & Arte, after whom folowed a great company of scholers and studentes vngraduate, And thus they proceded through the streete to Christes Churche: And there the Quere sang a Psalme, and after that a Collect was redde. This done, departed the Commissioners, Doctours, and manye other to Lincolne colledge, where they dyned, with the Mayor of þe town, one Alderman, foure Bedels, mayster Say, and the Cambridge Notarye. After dyner they wente all agayne to sainte Maries Churche: and there, after a shorte consultation in a chapel, all the Commissioners came into þe quere, and satte all on seates before the Altare. And fyrste sente to the Mayor, that he shoulde bring in Doctour Cranmer, whiche within a while was brought with a great number of bilmen, as ye heard before.

Thus the Reuerend Archbyshoppe, when he was brought before the Commissioners, he reuerenced them, wyth muche humilitye, and stoode with hys staffe in hys hande: who notwithstandyng hauynge a stoole offered him, refused to sitte. Then the Prolocutor sitting in the middes in a scarlet gown, beganne with an oration, perswading hym to come in agayn vnto the Churche, from whence he was slipte, declaryng also hys bryngyng vp, and takynge degrees in Cābridge & also how he was promoted by king Henry the eyght, beyng alwaies a councellour and catholyke, tyll of late that he had set foorth a Catechismus and other bokes, to the seducing and corruptyng of the Quenes people.

And notwithstandyng that, they would receyue hym agayne gentlye, yf he would retourne. When he hadde thus spoken hys full mynde, he caused the artycles to bee red vnto hym, and asked yf he woulde graunt, and subscribe vnto them. He denyed them all, as they were putte, and as they tooke them. Then the Prolocutour sayde, he shoulde dispute in them, and caused the copye of the artycles to bee delyuered hym, and appoynted hym to aunswere on Mondaye nexte, and charged the Mayor wyth hym agayne, and to be hadde to Bocardo, and kept as he was before: and he was offred to entitle what bokes he would occupye, and he should haue them broughte to hym.
