authority which he could not answer vnto. After this maister Dean made this argument out of the institution of the sacrament, (doe thys in remēbrance of me, and thus ye shal shew furth the Lordes death vntill he commeth.) The sacrament therfore is the remembrance of Christ, thā it is not very Christ. For yet he is not com. For this worde (vntyll he commeth) doth plainly signify the absence of Christes bodye. Than Marginaliaweston. the Prolocutor went about to shewe that thys worde (vntyll he commeth) did not import any absence of Christ on the earth, by other places of scripture where (donec) vntyll, was placed as well as there: but directly to the purpose he answered nothyng. In conclusion maister Deane fell to questioning of Moreman whether Christ eate the Paschal Lābe with his disciples or no? He answered, yea. Further he demaunded whether he eate lykewise the sacrament with them, as he did institute it? Moreman answered: yea. Than he axed what he eate, and whether he eat his owne natural body as they may imagine it to be, or no. MarginaliaMoreman affirmeth that Christ eat his owne body Than sayde maister Deane, it is a great absurditie by you graunted, and so he sate downe. Against this absurditie Philpot stoode vp and argued, saying he coulde proue by good reason to be deduced out of scripture, that Christ eate not his owne natural body at the institution of the sacrament, and the reason is this. The body of Christ geuen by the sacramente hath a promesse of remission of synnes adioyned, vnto all them that receiue it duely, MarginaliaPhylpot but this promesse could take no effect in Christ: ergo Christe eate not his owne body in the sacrament.

Thus when Philpot argued that 'The body of Christ givyn by the sacrament hath a promes of remission of synnis adjoyned vnto all them that receyve it dewely, but this promes could take no effect in chryst, ergo christ ate not his own body in the sacrament', (Trew report, sigs. B6v-B7r; 1563, p. 909); Foxe changed this to 'Receaving of Christes body hath a promise of remission of sinnes with it annexed, Christ eating the Sacrament had no promise of remission of sinne, ergo, Christ in the Sacrament dyd not eate his own body' (1570, p. 1573; 1576, p. 1342; 1583, p. 1412).

To thys reason Marginalia Moreman denieth the sacramente to haue a promesse of remissiō of syn annexed vnto it. Moreman aunswered, denying the former part of the argument, that the sacramente had a promesse of remission of synnes annexed vnto it Thā Philpot shewed this to be the promesse in the sacrament (which is geuen for you, whiche is shed for you, for the remission of sinnes.) But Moreman woulde not acknowledge that to be any promesse, so that he droue Philpot to the. vi. of sainte Iohn, to vouche his sayinge with these words The bread which I wil geue, is my flesh, which I wyl geue for the lyfe of the world. Moreman aunswering nothyng directly to this argument, MarginaliaHarpsfield affyrmeth that which Moreman his felowe denyed. Harpsfield start vp to supply that which wanted in his behalfe, and thinking to haue aunswered Philpot, confirmed more strongly his argument, sayinge, ye mistake the promesse whiche is annexed to þe body of Christ in the sacrament: for it perteyned not to Christ but to his disciples, to whome Christ sayd this is my body whiche is geuen for you, and not for Christ himself. You haue sayd wel for me, quod Philpot. For that is myne argument. The promesse of the bodye of Christe tooke no effecte in Christ, ergo Christ eate not his owne body. Marginaliaweston also is cōtrary to Moreman. Than the Prolocutor to shoulder out the matter, sayd the argument was naught For by the like argument he myghte goe aboute to proue that Christ was not baptysed, because the remission of synne whiche is annexed vnto baptisme tooke no effect in Christe. To the which Phylpot replied, that lyke as Christ was baptised, so he eate the sacrament: MarginaliaPhylpots argumente is not soluted. but he tooke on hym baptisme, not that he had any nede therof, or that it toke any effect in hym, but as our mayster, to geue the churche an example to folowe hym in the ministration of the sacrament, and therby to exhibite vnto vs, hymself, and not to geue him self to hymselfe.

No more was sayd in this. But afterward the Prolocutor demanded of Philpot, whether he would argue agaynst the natural presece or uo, To whome he answered, yea if he would heare his argumente with out interruption and assigne one to answere him and not many, which is a confusion to the Opponēt and specially for hym that was of an yl memory. By this tyme the nyght was com on. wherfore the Prolocutor brake vp the disputacion for that tyme, and appointed Philpot to be the fyrst that shuld begin the disputacion the next daye after, concerning the presence of Christ in the sacrament.

The act of the iiij. daye.

ON the wensdaye the xxv. of October, MarginaliaPhylpot. Ihon Philpot, as it was before appointed, was redy to haue entred the disputation myndyng fyrst to haue made a certen oration and a trew declaracion in laten of the matter of christes presence, which was than in question: which thing the Prolocutor perceiuing, by and by he forbad Philpot to make any oration or declaracion of any matter, commaunding hym also that he should make no argument in laten, but to conclude on his argumentes in Englysh. Then sayd Philpot: MarginaliaWestō contrary to his own words this is contrary to your order taken at the begynnyng of thys disputacion. For than you appoynted that all the argumenties should be made in laten. And thereupon I haue drawen and deuysed all my argumentes in laten. And because you, Maister Prolocutor, haue sayd here tofore openly in this house that I had no lerning, I had thought to haue shewed such lerning as I haue, in a briefe oration and short declaration of the questions now in controuersy: thinking it so most conuenient also, that in case I shoulde speake otherwyse in my declaration than should stād with lerning, or than I were able to warrant and iustyfy by gods word, it myght the better be reformed by such as were lerned of the house, so that the vnlearned sorte beinge present myghte take the less offence therat. But this alleagacion preuayled nothing with the Prolocutor, who bad him still forme an argument in Englyshe, or els to hold hys peace.

[Back to Top]

Thē sayd Philpot You haue sore disappointed me this sodeinly to go from your former order: but I wyll accomplysh your commaundement, leauyng myne oration a part. And I wyl come to my argumentes, the which as well as so sodain a warning wyll serue, I wyll make in English. But before I bryng furth any argument, I wyl in one word declare what maner of presence I do disallow in the sacrament, to the intent the hearers maye the better vnderstande to what ende and effect myne argumentes shall tend: not to deny vtterly the presence of christ in hys sacramentes trewly ministred accordyng to his institution, but only to deny that grosse and carnal presence which you of thys house haue alredy subscribed vnto to be in the sacrament of the altar, contrary to the truth and manyfest meanyng of the scriptures: That by transubstanciation of the sacramental bread and wyne Christes natural body should by the vertue of the words pronounced by the priest be conteined and included vnder the formes or accydentes of breade and wyne. This kynd of presence imagined by men, I do deny, quod Philpot. And agaynst this I wyll reasō. But before he could make an ende of that he
