Actes and Monumentes of the church.

Marginalia1.To the fyrst, he sayde and confessed that he had spoken against the nomber of the said sacramentes, being fully perswaded that there be but onely two sacramentes: to wyt, Baptisme, and the supper of the Lorde: and as for the other fiue, he denied them to be sacramentes, and therefore hath spoken against them. And as concerning the sacrament of the aultar (whiche hee then called the Supper of the Lord) he confessed that hee hadde spoken and taught that in the said sacrament, there is not really, and substantially the verye bodye and bloude of Christe, but that the substaunce of bread and wyne doth remayne in the sayd sacrament, without any transubstantiation at al. Farther, as touchyng confession of sinnes to the priest, he answered that he thoughte it necessarye, if the offense were done vnto the priest: but if the offense were done to another, then confession made to the priest is not necessary, but reconciliation onelye to bee made to the party so offended.

Marginalia2.To the second, he aunswered that hee then dyd and had before myslyked the order of latyne seruice then vsed: and also dyd allow the seruice vsed in the latter tyme of kyng Edwardes reygne, for that the holye scripture doth the same, and therfore he graunted that he dyd teache and set foorthe the sayde English seruice, as in the same article is obiected.

Marginalia3.To the third, he graunted that hee had approued the doctrine of the parties articulate, as agreable to Gods woorde, and that they were godly learned men, and such as had perfect vnderstandynge in the contentes of the same article.

Marginalia4.To the fourth, he answered that hee dydde wel lyke the Communion vsed in kynge Edwardes dayes, but sayde that hee had not ministred or receiued the same here in England synce the Quenes raygne, neyther yet knew any that had the bookes thereof. But on the other syde, he knewe manye that hadde those bookes, and that there also hee had receyued the Communion in sundry places.

Marginalia5.The contentes of the fifte, hee graunted to be true.

Marginalia6.To the sixt, he confessed that hee had bene familiar wyth diuers englishe men and women, beinge in Friselande, and agreed wyth them in opinion, as Maister Scory, Thomas Yong, George Roo, and others, to the number of one hundreth persons, whiche fled thyther for religion, vsynge there the order sette forth in the reygne of kyng Edward, & other wise he denieth the contentes of this articles.

Marginalia7.The contentes of the seuenth he graunted in euery poynt to be true.

Marginalia8.To the eight, he answered and cōfessed that sithens his last cōming into England (which was about the. x. day of nouember) he had in

sōdry places in the suburbes of Londō praied and red such prayers and seruice, as is appointed in the booke of the communion, and had willed others to do the lyke, both men and women, which he did know by sight, but not by name. How beit he did nether cause any to withdraw them selues from the latyn seruice but he sayd that it were better to praye in a tonge that they did vnderstand, then in an vnknowen tong.

Marginalia9.To the ninth he confessed that at, the tyme and place articulate he was present to heare and se a playe, and there was apprehended by the quenes maiesties Vicechamberlayn, with one Cutbert a taylor, and one Hugh a hosyer and diuers other both men and women, whose names he knew not, and by him was brought before the Counsell, who sent him vnto Newgate, and from thence he was brought to the Byshop. And otherwise hee denieth the contentes of this article.

Vpon these answers he was dismissed, & the next day (being the xix. day of Decēber) he was againe brought before the sayd Byshop and others. Who, when they perceaued his constātnes, determined the next day after to bringe him openly into the Consystory, there to adiudge & cōdemne him as an hereticke. Which purpose they accomplished. For the. xx. daye at afternone (in the presence of the Byshop of London and saint Dauids, with Feckenhā Abbot of Westminster, and others) he was thither producted. Where after much and many fayre perswasions, Boner red vnto him the articles & answeres before mencioned, in the which they charged him to haue receaued the orders of the Church, and therfore mighte not mary, & that he had refused to cōsente vnto þe latin seruice then vsed in the Church. Wherunto he then answered, and sayde: that their orders were nothing at al, and that he beinge a priest might lawfully mary, and that hys Children which he had by his wife, were lawfull. And as touching the seruice then vsed, he vtterly detested it, saying that if he should liue as long did Methushelah, yet he would neuer come to the church to heare the abhominable masse, and other seruice being as it was then. Vpon which woords the Byshop proceded to the actuall degradation of the sayde Rowghe exempting him from al the benefites and priuileges of their Church: and after, condempning him as an heretick, comytted his bodye vnto the secular power. Who taking him into their charge & custody, caried him vnto new gate, frō whēce he wrote ymmediatly a letter vnto his Godly frendes, yet abroad, & out of the daunger of the vnmercifull persecutors confirming and strengthning thē in the truth which he had taught them. The copy of which letter here followeth.
