sound & wholsome religion) that liked theire doing herein. MarginaliaWatsons Sermon at the burnyngof Byucer and Phagius.In the meane time that they were a rosting in the fyre, Watsō wente into the pulpyt in Saynt Mary church, and there before his andience rayled vpon theyr doctrin as wicked and erronious: saying that it was the ground of al mischiefe that had happened of a long time in the common weale. For behold (sayth he) as well the prosperity, as thaduersity of these yeares that haue ensewed: Ye shall finde that al thinges haue chaunced vnluckely, to them that haue folowed this newe found fayth, and al thinges haue happened fortunately to thē that haue eschewed it. MarginaliaAs thoughe in those daies had bene raysed no subsidies at all besydes priuye stales anone after.What robbing and polling (quod he) haue we sene in this realme, as longe as religion was defaced with Sectes, the common treasure (gathered for the maintenaunce of the whole publyke weale) and the goods of the realme shamefully spent in waste for the maintenaunce of a fewe folkes lustes: al good order broken: al discipline caste aside: holy daies appointed to the solemnising of ceremonies neglected: and that more is, the places them selues beatē downe, fleshe and other kinde of prohibited sustenaunce eaten euery where vpon dayes forbidden, without remorce of conscience: þe priestes had in derision: the masse rayled vpon: no honour done to the Sacramentes of the church: all estates and degrees geuen to such a licencious liberty without check, that all thinges maye seme to drawe to their vtter ruine and decaye. And yet in the meane tyme, the name of the Gospel was pretended outwardly, as though that for it men oughte of duty to geue credit to theire erroneous opinions: wheras in dede there is nothing more descrepant, or more to the slaunder of Gods worde then it. For what other thing taught they to remain in that moste blessed and mistical Sacrament of the body of our Lord, then bare vnleauened bread? And what els do the remnaūt of them teache vnto this daye? Wheras Christ by expresse wordes doth assure it to be his very body. How perillous a doctrine is that which cōcerneth that fatal and absolute necessity of Predestination? And yet they sette it out in such wyse, that they haue lefte no choice at all in thinges, as who shoulde saye, it skilled not what a man purposed of any matter, sithens hee had not the power to determine otherwise then the matter should come to passe. The which was the peculiar opinion of them that made God the authour of euill, bringing men through this perswasion into such a carelesse security of the euerlasting eternity, that in the meane season, it made no matter either towarde saluacion, or toward damnation what a man did in this life. These errrours, (which were not euen among the Heathen men) were defended by them with greate

stoutnes. These and many such other things he slaunderously and falsely alledged againste Bucer, whose doctrine (in such sorte as hee him selfe taught it) eyther hee would not vnderstande, or els he was minded to slaunder. And yet he was not ignoraunte, that Bucer taught none other thinges, then þe very same MarginaliaWatson & Scot had both subscribed the doctrine of the Gospel in þe raygne of kynge Edwarde the syxt.wherunto both he & Scotte in the reygne of King Edward the syxth, had willingly assented by subscribing it with their owne handes. While he talked in this wise before the people, many of them that had written verses before, did set vp other newe, in the which like a sorte of water frogges, they spewed out theire venemous malice against Bucer and Phagius. This was the last of this enterlude, and yet there remayned a fewe thinges to be done among the which was the MarginaliaThe reconciling of the churches þt were interdited.reconciling of the two churches of our Lady, and of Saynte Michaell, which we declared to haue bene enterdited. The which was done the nexte daye folowing by Westchester, with as much ceremonie as the law required. But that impanate God, whom Bucers Carcase had chased from thence, was not yet retourned theither agayne: Neyther was it lawfull for him to come there any more, but if he wer brought thither with great solemnity. As I suppose during al the tyme he was away, he was enterteined by the Commissioners at Trinity Colledge, and there continued as a soiourner. MarginaliaA solemne processiō of thuniuersitye & of the townsmen.For thyther came al the Graduates of thuniuersity, the eyghte daye of February, of gentlenesse and courtesy to bryng him home a gayne. Amongest the which number, Westchester (worthye for his estate to come nearest to him, bycause he was a bishop) tooke & caried him cladde in a longe Rochette, and a large tippet of sarcenet about his necke, wher in he wrapped his Idoll also. Ormanet Datary had geuen the same a litle before to thuniuersity for the same and such like purposes. When this Idoll should retourne home, hee went not the straitest & nearest way as other folke are wonte to go, but he fetched a wind lasse about the most parte of the towne, and romed through so many of the streetes, that it was a large houre and more, ere hee coulde finde the waye into his Church agayne. I beleue thauncient Romaines obserued a custom not much vnlike this in their procession, whē they made supplications at þe shrines of al their Gods. MarginaliaThe order of going in procession.Thorder wherof was this: þe maysters Regentes went before singing with a loud voyce, Salue festa dies. &c.
