Actes and Monumentes of the church

Philpot, accordinge to youre promesse made in this house, not yet according to your brag made at Paules crosse, that men should be answered in this disputation, to whatsoeuer they cā saye, since you will not suffer me of a dosen arguments to prosecute one. Than maister Pie toke vpon him to promesse that he should be answered another daye. Philpot seing he mighte not procede in his purpose, being therewith iustlye offēded, ended: saying thus: A sight of you here, whiche hetherto haue lurked in corners and dissembled with God and the world, are now gathered together to suppresse the sincere truth of Gods holy woord, and to set foorth euery false deuise, whiche by the Catholike doctrine of the scripture, ye are not able to mainteine. Than stepped foorth MarginaliaM. Elmar maister Elmar, chaplein to the Duke of Suffolke, whome maister Moreman tooke vpon him to aunswere, agaynst whome maister Elmar obiected diuers & sondry authorities, for the confirmyng of the argumente he toke the day before in hād to proue: þt ουσία in the sentence of Theodoret broughte in by mayster Cheny, must nedes signify substance and not accidence, whose learned reasons and clerkly approbations, because they were al grounded and brought out of the Greke, I do passe them ouer for that they want their grace in Englishe, and also theyr proper vnderstanding. But his allegations so incombred maister Moreman, that he desired a daie to ouer vewe them for at that instant he was without a conuenient aunswer. MarginaliaMoreman desireth a day to imagine som crafty shift Than did the Prolocutor call maister Haddon Dean of Exeter, and chaplaine to the Duke of Suffolke, who prosecuted Theodoretes authoritie in confirming maister Elmars argumēte: to whome D. Watson toke vpon hym to geue aunswere, who after long talke was so confoūded MarginaliaWatson cōfounded by M. Haddōthat he was not able to aunswer to a certaine worde (mysteriū.) but forasmuche as he semed to doute therein, maister Haddon toke out of his bosome a laten authour to confirme his saying, and shewed the same to maister Watsō, asking him whether he thought the translation to be true, or that the printer were in any fault. MarginaliaWatsō for a bare shift putteth a fault in the printer.There may be a fault in the printer, quod Watson, for I am not remembred of this worde. Than did maister Haddon take out of his bosome a Greke booke, wherin he shewed foorth with his finger the same wordes, whiche mayster Watson coulde not denye. His arguments further I omyt to declare at large, because they wer for the most part in greke, about the bulting out of the true signification of (ουσία.)  

Commentary  *  Close

The text reads (1563, p. 912; 1570, p. 1576; 1576, p. 1344; and 1583, p. 1414) that James Haddon's arguments on the fourth day of the 1553 Convocation, relating to a passage in Theodoret, would not be repeated because they were in Greek. This abridgement was Philpot's, and Foxe was merely repeating it (see Trew report, sigs. C8r-D1v). But Foxe had an account of this expurgated portion of the debate which he never printed, and it survives in his papers (BL Harley MS 422, vols. 38r-40r. This document was printed in R. W. Dixon, A History of the Church of England (6 vols), London, 1884-1902, IV, pp. 81-85.

Than stepte foorth MarginaliaM. Perne maister Perne and in argumente, made declaration of his mynde againste transubstantiation and confirmed the sayinges and autorityes alledged by mayster Elmar & maister Haddon: to whom the Prolocutor answered saying: I much maruel, maister Perne, that you will say thus, forsomuch as on Friday last you subscribed to the contrary: Whiche his saying maister Elmar did mislike, sayinge to the Prolocutor that he was to blame so to reprehende any man, partly for that this house, quod he is an house of free liberty for euery manne to speake his conscience, and partely for that you promised yesterday that notwithstandyng anye man had subscribed, yet he shoulde haue free lybertie to speake his mynde.

ning, did yet notwithstanding conclude that all reasoning set a part the order of the holy church muste be receiued, and all thinges muste be ordered thereby.

The acte of the v. daye.

On frydaye the xxvii. of October, D Weston the Prolocutor dyd first propound the matter, shewing that the conuocation had spent ii. dayes in disputacion allready about one onely Doctor, which was Theodoret, and about one only worde which was (ουσια.) Yet were they come the third daye to answer all thinges that could be obiected, so that they would shortly put out theyr argumentes. MarginaliaM. Haddō & Watson. So Maister Haddō Deane of Exceter, desired leaue to appose maister Watson, which with ii. other mo, that is Morgane and Harpsfield, was appointed to answere. Maister Haddon demaunded this of hym, whether any substance of bread or wyne dyd remayne after the consecracion: thā maister Watson asked of hym agayne, whether he thought there to be a reall presence of Gods body or no? Maister Haddon sayd, it was not mete nor orderlike, that he which was appointed to be Respondent shoulde bee Opponent. and he whose dutye was to obiect, should answer. Yet master Watson a long while woulde not agre to answer, but that thing fyrst granted hym. At last an order was set, and mayster Haddon had leaue to go forward with hys argument. Than he proued by Theodoretes wordes a substance of bread and wyne to remaine. For these are his wordes: the same they were before the sanctification, they are after. Maister Watson, sayd that Theodorete mente not the same substance but the same essence, wherupon they were dryuen agayne vnto the discussing of the greke word (ουσια): and maister Haddō proued it to meane a substance, both by the etymology of the word, and by the wordes of the doctor. First, quod he, it commeth of the participle (ων), which descendeth of the verbe, sum. And so the nowne (ουσία). Than maister Watson answered that he had not that significacion only. Than maister Haddon proued that it muste nedes so signify in that place, and he axed whā the bread and wyne became symboles? whereunto answere was made, after the consecracion and not before. Than gathered maister Haddō this reason, out of his autor: the same thinge, sayth Theodorete, that the bread & wyne were before they were simbols, the same they remaine styll in nature and substance, after they are simboles: bread and wyne they were before, therefore bread and wyne they are after. MarginaliaWatson is driuen to a shamefull shift to denie the author, whan he cannot answer. Than Maister Watson fell to the deniall of the autor, and saide he was a Nestorian: and he desired that he mighe answere to Maister Cheyny, whiche stode by, for that he was more mete to dispute in the matter, because he had graūted and subscribed vnto the reall presence. Maister Cheyny desired pacience of the honourable men to heare him, trusting that he shoulde so open the matter that the veritye shoulde appeare: protesting furthermore, that he was no obstinate nor stubburne man, but would be cōformable to all reason. MarginaliaM. Cheny And if they by theyr lerning, which he acknowledged to be much more than hys, could answere hys reasons, that thā he would be ruled by them, and saye as they said. for he would be no autor of schisme, nor holde any thing contrary to the holy mother
