Boner. Why? then must thou nedes say that it is hys bodye: for he sayeth it hym selfe, and thou confessest that he wyl not lye.

Rafe. No my Lorde: he is true, and all men are liers: notwithstanding I vtterly refuse to to take the wordes of oure sauiour so fantastically as you teache vs to take them. for then should we conspire with certen heretickes called the Nestorians. For they deny that Christ had a true natural body, and so me think you do my Lord: if you wil affirme his body to be there as you saye he is, then muste you nedes also affirme, that it is a fantasticall body and not a true naturall body, and therfore loke to it for gods sake, & let these wordes go before: take ye, eate ye, without which woordes the rest are not sufficient: but when the worthy receyuers doo take and eate, euen then is fulfilled the woordes of oure sauioure, vnto him, or euery of them, that so receiueth.

Boner. Ah, I see well thou canste not vnderstand these wordes: I will shewe thee a parable. If I should sette a pece of befe before thee and say eate: is it not befe? and then take part of it away, and send it to my cooke and he shal chaunge the facion therof, and make it looke like bread. What wouldest thou say þt it wer? no befe, because it hath not the facion of befe?

[Back to Top]

Rafe. Let me vnderstande a litel further my Lord: shal the cooke ad nothing therunto, nor take nothing there from?

Boner. What is that the matter, whether he do or no, so long as the shape is chaūged in to an other likenes.

Rafe. A, wyl you so my lord? your sophistry wyll not serue. the truth wyl haue the victory neuertheles, as Esay sayth in the. 59. chapter. He that restrayneth him selfe from euil, must be spoyled, and Amos hath such lyke wordes also. For the wyse muste be faine to hold theyr peace: so wycked a time it is, sayth he. Neuertheles he that can speake the truth and will not, shal geue a strayt accountes for the same.

A Doctor. By my Lordes leaue, here mee thinkest thou speakest like a fole. wilt thou be a iudge of the scripture? Nay thou must stand to learne, and not to teach. For the whole congregation hath determined the matter long ago.

A Priest. No by your leaue, we haue a church and not a congregation. you mystake that woord, maister Doctor.

Rafe. Then sayd I to my fellowe prisoners standing by: my brethren, do yee not heare how these men helpe one an nother? let vs do so also. But we neuer came all in together, after that tyme, but seuerally one after an other. Then was I caried away for that tyme. The. xix. day of May I was brought before þe byshop of Rochester, and Chichester with others.

[Back to Top]

B. Rocheste. Were you a Companion of George Eagles, otherwise called Trudgeouer? My Lord of London telleth mee that you were his fellow companyon.

Rafe. I know him very well, my Lorde.

Rochester. By my fayth I had him once, and then he was as dronke as an Ape. for he stonk so of Drinke, that I could not abyde hym, and so sent hym awaye.

Rafe. My Lord, I dare saye you tooke your markes amis. It was either your selfe or som of your owne cōpany. for he did neither drinke wine, ale nor beere in a quarter of a yeare before that tyme, and more, and therfore it was not he forsooth.

The rest of myne examinations you shall haue when I am condempned, if I can haue any tyme after my comming into Newgate, the which I trust shal touch þe matter a great deale more plainlye. For the pithye matters are yet vnwritten. Thus fare you well good frendes all. Yea I saye, fare well for euer in this present world. Greete ye one another, & be ioyful in the Lord. salute þe good widowes among you, with all the rest of the congregacion in Barfold, and Dedham, & Colchester.

THis promise of his, beinge either not performed, for þt he might not thereto be permitted, or els if he dyd write the same not comming to my handes, I am faine in the reste of his examinations to follow the onely reporte of the register. Who witnesseth that the xv. daye of Maye, Anno. 1557. in the Byshops Palace at London, MarginaliaArticles ministred against Rafe Allerton.he was examined vpon certen interragatories, the contents wherof be these.

Marginalia1.Firste, that he was of the parishe of Muche Bentley, and so of the dioces of London.

Marginalia2.Secondly, that the. x. daye of Ianuary, then last past, maister Iohn Morrant preaching at Paules crosse, þe said Raffe Allerton did there openly submit hym selfe vnto the church of Rome, with the rites and Ceremonies therof.

Marginalia3.Thirdly, that he did consent and subscribe aswell vnto the same submission, as also to one other byll, in the which hee graunted, that if he should at any tyme turne agayne vnto his former opinions, it shoulde be then leaful for the byshop immediatly to denounce and adiudge him as an heretique.

Marginalia4.Fourthly, that hee had subscribed a byll, wherin he affirmed, that in the sacrament, after the words of consecration spoken by the priest, ther remayneth styl materyall bread & materyal wine. And that he beleued that the bread is the bread of thankes geuing, and the memoryall of Christes death: and that when he receaueth it, he receaueth the body of christ spiritually in his soule, but materyall bread in substance.
