and to haue him present in the sacrament.

There saint Augustine speaketh of holdyng him by faith, as he is fauorable vnto vs.

west. Nay, he speaketh there how the fathers had him in the fleshe, & teacheth that we haue him not so in fleshe, as they had hym lōg time, saying: your fathers did kepe Christ presēt in the flesh dooe ye keepe hym in your hearte. What woordes can be more playner? Farther he sayth: he is gone and is not here: he hath lefte vs, and yet hath not forsakē vs. Hic est maiestate, abiit carne He is here in maiestye, and gone touchyng the fleshe.

Harps. I dooe vnderstand Austine thus: that Christe is here in his fleshe to them that receyue hym worthelye: to such as doe not wothely receyue hym, to them he is not presente in the fleshe. I iudge saincte Augustine meaneth so. Wee haue hym, and not haue him: we haue him in receiuyng of hym worthely, otherwyse not.

VVest. Naye: Tenere carnem est tenere corticem literæ: I wyl prosecute an other argument. Cirillus doth say: by the maiestie of his dyuinitie, he is euer here, but the presence of hys fleshe he hath taken away.

Harps. This sense of Cirill is thus to be vnderstanded: The moste true fleshe of Christe is at the ryght hande of the father. Thus the Fathers taught, and so they beleued. Thus sayde Cirill: thus sayde Austine: and because this is the foundation of oure fayeth, they dyd oftentymes teache it. Therefore, when they proue this, (the bodye to be in heauen) they dooe not make agaynste the presence in the sacramente. So vnlesse ye can plainely shewe, that the fathers doe directly saye, he is not in the sacramente, you make nothing againste me. For I haue shewed why the fathers so spake. They did teache the great difference betwene the diuine nature and the humane nature, as I haue before saide.

west. I wil then proue that he is not in the sacrament. Vigilius against the Heretike Eutiches, vpon these wordes, me autem non semper habebitis, saith: the sonne of God, as touchynge his humanitie is gone from vs. By his diuinitie he remaineth with vs: and that same Vigilius in his fourth booke sayeth: he that is in the Heauen, is not in the Earth, speakynge of Christ.

[Back to Top]

Harps. I will shewe you the reason of these wordes: the heretike Eutiches did beleue that the diuine nature of Christ was fastned on the crosse, and beleued that Christ had no naturall body. To this Vigilius saide, that the humane nature was taken vp, & ascended, which could not so haue done, vnlesse he had hadde a bodie. This he said not, to take away the presence in the sacrament? For what had he to referre this sentence to the sacramēt. He neuer did somuch as dreame of the sacrament.

west. Ciril saith: although he be absent from vs in bodye, yet are wee gouerned by his spirite.

Harp. By these woordes he gaue vs a cherefulnesse, taspyre vpwardes, seking therehence our helpe. For as touchinge his conuersation, he is not so in the sacrament, as one mete to be liued withall. But let him teache vs that he is not there to fede vs: for after that sort he is there.

west. You haue satisfied me with youre aunswers, in doing the same learnedly, and catholickely. But nowe to an other argument.

Christ is now so absent from the earth by his body, as he was absent from heauen, when he liued here.

But whan he did liue bodelye on earth, the same naturall bodye was out of heauen.

Ergo nowe whiles hys naturall bodye is in heauen, it is not on earth.

Harps. I deny the maior.

west. Fulgentius ad Trasmūdū regem Lib. 2. saith secūdum humanam substātiam absens erat cœlo, cum descendit de cœlo. These are Fulgentius words touching his humane substance. He was absēt from heauen when he descended from heauen: and touching the same substance, now he is in heauen, he is not on the earth: but concernyng the diuine nature, he neuer forsooke, neyther heauen nor earth.

☞ After these wordes, not waytyng his aunswer, he offred mayster Cranmer to dispute, who began in this wise.

Cran. I haue heard you ryght learnedly and eloquētly entreate of the dignitie of the scriptures, which I do both commend, & haue marueiled therat within my self. But wheras you referre the true sense and iudgemente of the scriptures to the catholike churche, as iudge, ye cannot easily appoynt the same: chiefely for that you dooe attribute that name to thē, who haue corruptly iudged, and contrarye to the sense of the scriptures. I wōder lykewyse why you gaue so litle place to the diligent readyng of the scriptures, and conferring of places, to þe which the scriptures doth attribute somuch, as well in diuers other places, as also in those same, whiche you youre selfe haue alreadye alledged. And this your opinion of these questyons, hath not hadde his ground of Christe, eyther of the begynnynge of the Churche: and to saye the truthe, scholemen haue spoken diuersely of them, and doe not agree vpon them amonge themselues. Wherefore I mynde to shewe my iudgemente with a fewe argumentes, fyrste desyrous to knowe youre mynde in a fewe questions, by the aunsweryng whereof, we shal haue a readier waye vnto these our disputations.
