Smith. Then you are not of Chrisostomes fayth, nor of sainct Augustines faith.

Lat. I haue sayd, when they sayd well, and bring scripture for them, I am of their fayth: & further Augustine requireth not to be beleued.

west. Origen. Hom. 13. vpon Leuitic.

Lat. I haue but one worde to say, panis sacramentalis, the sacramentall breade, is called a Propitiation, because it is a sacramente of the propitiation. Where is your vocation?

west. My vocation is nowe to dispute.

Lat. Naye: where are you called to offer?

VVest. Hoc facite. Do this: for facite, in that place is taken for offerte, that is, offer you.

Lat. Is facere. to dooe, nothyng but sacrificare to sacrifice? why then no man must receyue the sacrament but priestes onely: for there may none offer but priestes.

Ergo: there may none receiue but priestes.

VVest. Your argument is to be denied.

Lat. Dyd Christ then offer hymself at his supper?

Pye. Yea, he offered himselfe for the whole worlde.

Lat. Then, if this worde, facite, doe ye, signifye sacrificate, sacrifice ye: It foloweth (as I saide) that none but priestes onely oughte to receyue the sacrament, to whome it is onely lawfull to sacrifice: and where fynde you that, I praye you?

VVest. Forty yeare agone, whether coulde you haue gone to haue founde your doctrine?

Lat. The more cause we haue to thank God, that hath now sent the light into the world.

west. The light? Naye, light and leude preachers: for you coulde not tell what you myghte haue, ye altered and chaunged so often your Cōmunions and your Altars: and all for this one ende, to spoyle and robbe the churche.

Lat. These thynges pertayne nothing to me. I must not aunswer for all other mens dedes, but onely for mine owne.

west. Well maister Latimer, this is oure intent, to wyll you well, and to exhorte you to come to your selfe, and remember that wythout Noes arke there is no health. 

Commentary  *  Close

Weston's phrase 'without Noes Arke, there is no health' (1563, p. 985; 1570, p. 1627; 1576, p. 1388; 1583, p. 1459) is a reference to the common medieval image of the church as Noah's ark. Weston is saying that there is no salvation outside the church. In fact, since Weston's remark was almost certainly made in Latin, 'health' is probably a misleading translation of 'salvus', which also means salvation.

Remember what they haue bene that were the beginners of your doctryne: none but a fewe fletyng Apostataes, running out of Germanye for feare of the fagot.

They will be lyke (they say) to the Apostles, they wyll haue no churches: A houell is good inough for them. They come to the Communion with no reuerence. They

A runnagate Scot 

Commentary  *  Close

The 'runnagate Scot' to whom Weston refers (in 1563, p. 985; 1570, p. 1627; 1576, p. 1388; 1583, p. 1459) is Alexander Alane (or Alesius) who translated portions of the first Edwardian prayer book.

dyd take away the adoration or worshippyng of Christe in the sacrament: by whose procuremente that heresye was putte into the last Communion booke: so muche preuayled that one mannes autoritie at that tyme. You neuer agreed with the Tyguryns or Germayns, or with the Churche, or with your selfe. Your stubbornesse commeth of a vaine glory which is to no purpose: for it wil doe you no good when the fagotte is in youre beard. And we see al by your own Confession, howe litle cause you haue to bee stubborne: for your learning is in feoffers hold. The Quenes grace is mercifull, if ye will turne.

[Back to Top]

Lat. You shall haue no hope in me to turne: I praye for the Queene daily euē from the bottome of my heart, that she may turne from this religion.

west. Here you al see the weaknesse of Heresy agaynst the truthe: he denyeth all truthe, and all the olde fathers.

THou hearest (good Reader) howe this gloryous Prolocutour tryumpheth:  

Commentary  *  Close

In the edition of 1563 Foxe added descriptions of the beginning of Latimer's disputation (1563, p. 978; 1570, p. 1622; 1576, p. 1384; 1583, p. 1454) and the conclusion (1563, p. 985; 1570, p. 1627; 1576, p. 1389; 1583, p. 1459); these almost certainly came from another eyewitness.

but whether he hath the victorye or no, that I suppose thou haste not yet, neyther heard nor seen. And geue that he hadde the victorye, yet what great maruell was it, disputynge as he dyd, non sine suo theseo:  
Commentary  *  Close

Foxe added a classical tag - 'non sine suo Theseo' - to the conclusion of Latimer's disputation (1563 p. 985; 1570, p. 1627; 1576, p. 1388; 1583, p. 1459).

That is, not without his tiplyng cuppe standing at his elbowe all the tyme of his dysputyng, not wythoute a priuye laughter of them that behelde the matter, but especially at that tyme, whan D. Ridley disputyng with one of the Opposers, the sayd Prolocutor taketh and holdeth the cuppe in hys hande, speakynge to the Opponent: Vrge hoc, Vrge hoc, sayeth he, Nam hoc facit pro nobis. In whiche woordes as he moued no lytle matter of laughter to the beholders thereof: So I thought here also not to leaue the same vnmentioned, somewhat also to delite the Reader withall, after his tedyous wearinesse in readyng the storye thereof.
