lye to euery mās question, al the which I can not remembre: but I sayd.

wood. So Festus sayd to Paule, when hee spake the wordes of sobernes and truth out of the spirit of God, as I do. But as yee haue iudged me, you be your selues: you will go to hell al the sort of you, if you condemne mee, if you repente it not with spede.

wood. Then my keper and the Sherifs deputy, Fuller, rebuked me, because I spake so sharply to them, and I sayd: I pray you let me alone. I answer for my life. Then there was much a do that I shoulde kepe silence. I held my peace: then spake the byshop of Wincester and the Archedeacon of Caunterbury, saying. We go not about to condemne the, but go about to saue thy soule, yf thou wylte be ruled, and do as we would haue the.

[Back to Top]

wood. To saue my soule? nay you can not saue my soule. My soule is saued all redy, I prayse God therfore. There can no man saue my soule, but Iesus Christ: & hee is that hath saued my soule, before the foundations of the woorld was layd.

The fatte Priest. What an heresy is that my Lord? here is another heresy. He saith his soule was saued before the foundations were layde. Thou canst not tell what thou sayst. Was thy soule saued before it was.

wood. Yes I prayse God I can tell what I saye, and I saye the truthe. Looke in the first of the Ephesians, and there you shal find it, where Paule sayth: blessed be God, the Father of our lord Iesus Christ, which hath blessed vs with al maner of spirituall blessings, in heauenly things, by Christ, according as he hath chosen vs in hym selfe, before the foundations of the earth was layd, that we should be holly, & without blame before him, through loue, and therto were predestinated. These be the wordes of saint Paule: and I beleue they be most true. And therfore it is my fayth, in and by Iesus Christ that saueth, and not you, nor any man els.

[Back to Top]

The fat Priest. What? faith without works? saint Iames saith: faith without woorkes is dead, & we haue free wil to do good workes.

wood. I would not that any of you shoulde thinke that I do disallow good woorkes. For a good fayth cannot be without good works. Yet not of our selues, but it is þe gifte of God as sayth saynte Paule to the Philippians, the. ii. chapter: It is God that worketh in vs, both the wil & also the dede, euen of good wil.

[Back to Top]

VVin. Make an ende: answer to mee. Here is your Ordinary, the Archdeacon of Canterbury: he is made your Ordinary by my Lorde Cardinall: and he hath autority to examine you of your fayth vpon a booke, to aunswer to such articles, as he wil lay to you. And I pray you refuse it not: for þe daunger is greate

if you do. Wherfore we desire you to shewe your selfe a subiect in this matter.

Then they spake all and sayd: lo, my Lorde desireth you gently to answer to hym, and so wee do all. For if you refuse to take an othe, hee may excomunicate you. For my Lorde Cardinall may put whom he wyl in the Byshoppes office, vntil he is consecreated.

VVood. I knowe not so much. If you wyl geue me tyme to learne the truthe of it, (if I can proue it to be as you say) I wyl tel you my minde, in any thing that he wyll demaund of me, without any flatteryng.

Priest. My Lord and all we tel the it is true: and therfore answer to hym.

wood. I wyll beleue none of you all. For you be tourne cotes, and chaungelinges, and be wauering minded, as sayth saynt Iames: you be neither hot or colde, as sayth s. Iohn. Therfore god wil spew you out of his mouth. Wherfore I can beleue none of you al, I tell you truth.

VVin. What? be wee tourne Cotes, and chaungelinges? what meanest thou by that?

VVood. I meane that in King Edwardes time you taught the doctrine that was sette fourth then, euery one of you, and now you teache the contrary: and therfore I call you turne coates, and chaungelinges, as I maye well inough. Which wordes made the moste parte of them quake.

win. Nay, not all, as it chaunched.

wod. No? I praye you where wer you then?

win. I was in the Tower, as the Lieutenaunte wil beare mee record.

wood. If you were in the Tower, it was not therefore. I dare saye it was for some other matter.

Then they toke al hart of grace, and said: my Lord, hee commeth to examine you, wee thinke: if he will not answere to the articles, you were best to excommunicate him.

winches. He is the naughtiest verlet heretique, that euer I knewe. I will reade the sentence agaynst him.

VVood. Then they spake all at once: and I answered them as fast as I could. But I can not remember it all, the wordes came oute so thick, & that I spared them not (I praise God therfore.) For I spake freely.

Then they that stode by, rebuked me, and sayde: you cannot tell to whom you speake, I thinke.

wood. No? thinke you so? they be but men. I am sure I haue spoken to as good as they bee, and better then they will euer be, for any thing that I can see, if they repente not wyth speede.

winches. Geue eare: for I will reade sentēce agaynst you.

wood. Will you so? wherfore will you? you
