At what tyme the foresayde Archbyshop of Yorke, sitting on the right hand of the yong kyng, saide: sir, ye haue great cause this day to ioye. For there is no Prince in the world that hath suche office this daye &c. MarginaliaPryde destroyed all.And the yonge king disdaining his wordes, saide: my father is not dishonored in this doing. For I am a king and a quenes sonne, and so is not he. And not only this, but after also persecuted his father. And so in his youth, after he had reigned a few yeares, died, teaching vs what is the price and rewarde of breaking the iust commaundemēts of God.

After the death and reigne of whiche kyng, his children after him worthely rewarded for their vnnaturalnes against their father, lackyng the successe whiche their father had, lost all beyond the Sea that their father had gotte before.

And thus muche concerninge the reigne of Henry the seconde, and the death of Thomas Becket, whose death as is aforesaid, happened in the dayes of Alexāder the third, which Pope vsurping the keyes of ecclesiasticall regiment xxi. yeares, or as Gisburgensis wryteth, three & twēty yeres, gouerned þe church with muche tumulte, striuing and contending with Fryderick the Emperour, not shaming like a most proude Lucifer, to treade with his foote vpon the necke of the sayde Emperour, as is aboue described pag. 41.

Marginalia1179.This Pope amōg many other his actes, had certen cōcels (as is partly before touched) some in Fraūce, som at Rome in Lateran, by whom it was decreed that no Archbyshop should receiue the palle, onles he should first sweare, cōcerning the solemnitie of whiche palle, for the order and maner of geuing & taking the same obedience to the Pope, as it is cōteined in their owne wordes, I thought it good to set it forth vnto thee, that thou mayest well consider and vnderstande their doinges therein.

¶ That is in English.

TO the honour of almightie God, and of blessed Mary the virgin, and of blessed saint Peter and Paule, and of our Lorde Pope N. and of the holy churche of Rome, and also of the churche of N. committed to your charge, we geue to you the palle taken from the body of sainct Peter, as a fulnes of the office pontificall, whiche you may were within your owne churche, vpon certen dayes, whiche be expressed in the priuileges of the saide church, graūted by the sea Apostolike.

Notes vpon the same.

☞ To the honour. &c. with what confidence durst the Pope couple the honour of almightie God, and the honour of Mary, of saint Peter, and of the Pope, and of the Romyshe churche altogether if he had not been a presumptuous Lucifer, equalling him selfe not onely with suche sainctes, but also euen with him whiche is God alone, to be blessed for euer?

Taken from the body, &c. If saint Peters body be not all consumed, let him shewe it if he can. If he can not shewe it, howe than is this pall taken from the body of saint Peter? or if he meane it to bee of sainct Peters owne wearing, then belyke saint Peter had a goodlye wardrop of palles, when euery Archebyshop in all christendome receiueth from the Pope a diuerse palle.

To a fulnes of the office &c. Rather he myght saye, the fulnesse of his owne purse, when as Archebyshops payde so swetely for it. In so muche that Iacobus the Archebyshop of Mentz (as is aboue touched pag. 15) a lytle before the councell of Basile, where the price was wont to be but a thousand florences, could not obteine it without xxvii. thousand florences.

MarginaliaEx libro grauaninū nationis germanioVpon certaine dayes &c. This difference there was betwene the Pope and other Archebyshoppes. for the Pope myght were the palle at all tymes and in all places at his pleasure. Archebyshops myght not weare it, but vpon certaine dayes, and in their churche onely within their prouince. Moreouer, this palle should not be asked but with great instaunce, and within thre monethes, without which palle he is not to be named Archbyshop, but may be deposed, hauing it not after thre monethes. And the same palle must also be buried with him whan he dieth. And whā it is geuē, some priuilege must be geuen withall, or the olde renued.
