For he said, that if he the said Iohn had so beleued, or did nowe beleue, he would (as other haue done) haue receued the same, which he did not, because he hath and doeth beleue that the very body of Christ is onely in heauen, and no where els. And furthermore the sayde Iohn Hallingdale saide that Cranmer, Latimer, Ridley, Hooper, and generally al, that of late haue bene burned for Heretikes, wer no Heretikes at all, because they did preach truely the Gospell, vppon whose preachinge, he the sayde Iohn Hallingdale hath grounded his faith & conscience, as he saith, accordyng to the saying of sacint Iohn in the. xviii. Chapter of his Reuelation, where he sayth, that the bloude of the Prophetes and of the sainctes, and of all that wer slain vppon earth, was found in the Babilonicall church, by the whiche the sayde Iohn Hallingdale saith, is vnderstande the Churche where the Pope is the head.

After whiche examination, the saide Iohn was sent vnto prison again. And the next day, being the. vi. daye of the said moneth, he was called before the Bishoppe againe, who perswadinge him with some wrested sentences of the Scripture, the saide Iohn Hallingdale answered. Because I will not (saith he) come to your Babilonicall Church, therfore (speakyng vnto Boner) ye go about to cōdēne me. And being of Boner further demaunded, whether he would perseuer and stande vnto his opinyons, or no, he made aunswer that he would cōtinue and persist in them vnto the death. Then red Boner the bloudy sentence of condemnation, at whiche time the sayde Iohn affirmed openly that (thanking GOD) he neuer came into the Church since the abhominatiō came into it, and so the poore member of Christ was sent to prison agayn.

Marginalia4Fourthly, that thou after the premysses, diddest promise vnto thy said Ordinary voluntarily, and of thine owne minde, that alwaies after the saide submission, thou wouldest in al points conforme thy self vnto the common order of the Catholike church, obserued and kept here in this Realme of Englande, and in no wise fal again to heresies, errours, or vnlawful opinions.
