Commentary on the Woodcuts  *  Close
CUL copy: a significant amount of additional detail is provided by the painter in this illustration, although, again, no additional detail is provided over the top of the colour red when used. A particularly vivid green is also used in this illustration; see, for example, the figure in the bottom right of the illustration, on his bended knee with his cap in his left hand. WREN copy: another pale image, although there is a lot of detailing in black ink.

other thing to haue the ve of the keyes. Marginalia167 Petrus de Palude.167. Wherfore here is to be noted a distinction of keyes, after the minde of my schooldoctors: one key whiche is called Clauis ordinis, hauing authoritie to bind and lose, but not ouer the persons whom they bind and lose, and this authoritie they take not immediately of Christ, but mediately by me the vicare of Christ. The other key is called Clauis iurisdictionis, whiche I the vicar of Christ take immediately of him, hauing not onely authoritie to binde and lose, but also dominion ouer them on whom this key is exercised. By the iurisdiction of which key, the fulnes of my power is so great, that where as all other are subiectes. Marginalia161 Dist. 95. cap. Imperator.168. yea and Emperours themselues ought to subdue theyr executions to me. Onely I am a subiect to no creature. Marginalia169 Gabriel lib. 4. Dist. 19.169. no not to my selfe, except I list, In foro pœnitentiæ, to my Ghostly father submitting my selfe as a sinner, but not as Pope: So that my Papall maiestie euer remaineth vnminished. Superiour to all men. Marginalia170 Pope Nicol. Dist. 19. cap. Si Romanorum in Glosa.170. whom all persons ought to obey. Marginalia171 Item 24. q. 1. Hæc est.171. and follow Marginalia172 Dist. 40. cap. Si Papa.172. whom no man must iudge nor accuse of any crime, either of murder, Adultery, Simony, or such like. Marginalia173 2. q. 7. Nos Si in Glosa.173. No mā depose, but I my selfe. Marginalia174 Extrauag. De elect. Innotuit.174. No man can excōmunicate me, yea though I cōmunicate wt the excōmunicat, for no Canō bindeth me. Whō no man must lye to. Marginalia175 De pænitentia. Dist. 1. c. Serpens in Glosa.175. For he þt lyeth to me is a church robber. Marginalia176 Dist. 19. cap. Nulli.176. And who obeyeth not me is an hereticke, & an excōmunicate person. Marginalia177 August de Ancho.177. For like as al the Iewes were commaūded to obey þe high priest of þe Leuiticall order, of what state or condition so euer they were, so are al christen men more and lesse bound to obey me Christes Liefetenaunt in earth. Concerning the obedience or disobedience of whom, ye haue in Deut. 17. Marginalia178 Glosa Ordinaris.178. Where the commō glose saith, that he who denyeth to the hye priest Obedientiam, lyeth vnder the sentence of condemnation, as much as he that denieth to God his Omnipotentiam. Thus then appeareth that the greatnesse of my priesthoode: Marginalia179 Antoninus179. begonne in Melchisedeche: solemnized in Aaron: continued in the Children of Aaron, perfectionated in Christ: represented in Peter: exalted in the Vniuersall iurisdiction: and manifested in Siluester. &c. So that thorough this Præeminence, of my priesthood, hauing al things subiect to me. Marginalia

Commentary  *  Close

Psalm 8: 6-8.

Omnia subiecisti sub pedibus eius, oues & boues, & vniuersa pecora campi. Volucres cœli & pisces maris. &c. i. Thou hast subdued all thinges vnder his feete sheep, & oxen, and all cattell of the fielde, the birdes of heauen, and fish of the sea. &c. Marginalia181 Ibidem.181. Where it is to be noted, thatby oxen, Iewes and heretickes, by cattell of the field, Paganes be signified. For although as yet they be out of the vse of my keyes of bynding and loosing, yet they be not out of the iurisdiction of my keyes, but if they returne I may absolue them. Marginalia182 Ibidem182. By sheepe and all cattell, are ment all Christen men both great and lesse, whether they be Empe-perour, Princes, prelates or other. By byrdes of the ayre you may vnderstand the Angels and potestates of heauen who be all subiect to me, in þt I am greater then the Aungels, and that in foure thinges as is afore declared: & haue power to binde and lose in heauenr Marginalia183 23. q. 5. ca. Omnium183. and to geue heauen to them that fight in my warres, Marginalia184 Idem Antoninus in ibid.184. Lastly, by the fishes of the sea, are fignified the soules departed in payne or in purgatory, as Gregory by his praier deliuered the soule of Traianus out of hell, and I haue power to deliuer out of Purgatory whom I please. Marginalia185, Ibid.185. Lastly by the fishes of the sea, are signified such as be in purgatory: in somuche that they stand in neede and necessitie of other mens helpe, and yet be in theyr iorney Viatores, & de foro Papæ i. passengers and belonging to the court of the pope: therefore they may be relieued out of the storehouse of the Church, by the participation of indulgence. MarginaliaAntoninus. August. de Ancho. Th. Parte 4.And forasmuch as some do obiect that my pardons cannot extend to them that be departed, for that it was sayd to Peter: what soeuer thou shalt lose vpon earth, and therefore seeing they are not vpon earth they cannot be lose of me. Here I aunswere agayne by my doctours, that this word Super terram &c. i. vpon the earth may be referred twoo maner of wayes: first to him þe is the loser, so that he which shall lose shalbe vpon the earth. And so I graunt that the pope being dead can loose no man. Also it may be referred to hym that is loosed, so that whosoeuer is loosed must be vpon the earth or about the earth. Aud so the soules in purgatory, may be loosed, which albeit they are not vpon the earth, yet they are about the earth, at least they be not in heauen. MarginaliaAugust. de Ancho.And because oft tymes one question may rise vppon an other, and the heades of men now a dayes are curious, a man hearing nowe that I can deliuer out of purgatory wil aske here a question, whether I be able also to emptie all purgatory at once, MarginaliaAn papa possit totū purgatoriū expoliare. or not? To whom my Canonist August. de Ancho doth aunswere by a triple distinction: Quantum ad absolutam meam iurisdictionē, quantum ad ordinatam executionem, quantum ad diuinam acceptationem. MarginaliaIbidem Absoluta iurisdictio.First touching my absolute iurisdictiō, he saith I am able to rid out all purgatory together, for as many as be vnder my iurisdiction, as all be, except onely infants
