late kin^'N Wl will wa*, iti all a[ipparaucej uicoiisbtent 
with Kiii^U an undertaking, HowPVfrr, means wu» foim*l 
out to overcome the <liHicuity» though with Ultle credit 
to the contrivers. It i^ to be remembered, tliat kinff 
Henry VIII- was empowered, by aei of parliajnent^ to 
settle the iiuuccs«ioti, uitht-r by deed, or la>it will ;^ and, 
nceordingly, that powL^r was pxecutod by him, in his 
last will, whereby Edward, Mary, and Rlixahetii were 
appointed to reign auccp?isively : and, in ccse of a liiilurc 
of iBtiue male in any of them, the crown wa^ to devolve 
upon the house of Suffolk, with an exelusion of the 
Scottish Uiie, which, notwithstamliug, was tliL* next iu 
blood. Sixteen persons were nominated by the king to 
see his will performed, viz. Cranmer, arehliif*hnp of 
Canterbury, Tunstal, bishop of Durham. Wriothcsley, 
lord chaneellor, lord St. John, lord Rm^sell, the earl 
of Hertford, lord \i^couiit Lisle, sir Anthony Brown, 
sir WilhaiJi Pa^t*t, sir BdwHrd North, sir Kdward Mon- 
tague, justice Bromley, sir Anthmiy Denny, Hir William 
Herbert, t^ir Edward Wotton, and Dr. Wotton, dean of 
Canterbury, It h confidently reported, by good au- 
thors, that Stephen Gardiner, bishop of Winchester, was 
also oue<? named by the kin^, but craftily struck out of 
the list by Craniuer's contrivance, whoM- projects, in 
fevoiir of tlic reformation, could never have succeeded, 
hod GnrdJncr been suffered to act ; he boin^ a polttician 
of great experience, of a genius far superior to any of 
the rest, and, at the same time, well dUposed to make 
ap the breach with ihe siee of Rome.^ Care was like- 
wtw. taken to scnnrc the young king In the jmrty ; and, 
that be- might receive deep and early prejudices against 
the sec of Rome, two persons, remarkably zealous for 
the reformation, were appointed to be hi« tutors, viz. 
Dr, Cox» and Mr. Cheek. It waa ordered, by king 
Henry's will, that the aixtei-n exeeutors should govern 
the nation, by a majority of voices, during the young 
kiiijf's Eniuority, which was to cease when he arrived at

majority of the bishops and cleriEy were stiil popishly 
ftffcclcd ; that, if power were pat into such mni's hauds, 
they might prolrahly turn it upoa those who abetted tho 
reformation.*" ^XTiere Uiis was the managc^meut, it will 
be a (liflit^iilt matter to rooreive, liow the reftjriiiftt'toii 
could be the nork of a uatioiial church. That it was a 
cotitnTaiicv of the uiitiii^lry, in ^vhich the bishops and 
clergy wort? littlu rc.{;arded, ts pretty plfiin : insomuch 
that Cranmcr fu?cms to have heeu the only prelate that 
acted with any thing of zeal upon the oerasion. " Some 
there were (viz. Ve.sey of Kxeter, Hp-ath of Worcester, 
Day of OI]ichester» (jan:lmcr of Winchestefj Tuiwtal of 
Durham, Bonner, &Cp] so etiflf in their uld opinioiid, that 
neither terror nor persitasion could prevail upon thenif 
either to give tlicir approbation of the kiug'« proceed- 
iitga, or ()tli«Twisc to advance the service. And Mnue 
there were (viz. Kitrhin of Llaudaff, Capon of Salisbury, 
and Sampson of Coventry and Litchfield, &c.) who, 
though they outwardly complied with the kind's com- 
mands, yet did it so coldly, and with sneh reluctaney, 
as laid them oi>en to the spoil, ihou^rb not to the loss, 
of tljeir bifihopries,"^ As for the inferior clergy, ihcy 
were under a gennral restraint. By an cxprefta order 
from court, " none of the eler^ were to prcocln but in 
their own cures, without the king's license. Tlie resison 
of this restraint wa«, to hinder those that opposed the 
inteiuled reformittion, fn>m spreading their opinions^ 
aiui haranguing where they pleased: whereas those nf 
the protestant sentiment mignt more at lar§:c, have the 
couutenanee of the royal authoritj', and make proBelytes 
fi£ they were able."' 

It was visible to all persons, that thew* method* tended 
towards an utter overthrow of the old religion. How- 
ever, they moved on slowly, all the beginniiig of tliis 
reign. They were willing to satiBfy the court, and, at 
die same time, find nut auch a temper^ as might not be 
ihoeking to those of the old persuasion. To this purpose^ 
a m i^ I ej' -service was performed, accordingly as people

«tory. Dr H<'-y1ni niirl Mr, Collier, two noteil writers, 
arc accuacd, by many of their on u church, for being too 
ficvcrc in their charsrcs n^ainst both the method and 
motivee of the first r<'formcTs ; and yut, notwithstanding 
that disiadvantai^e, the account given by tlio^a authors 
is rec^ mini ended to the world, an a suftioient jiistifie-ation 
of the rcfonnntion, Xi» to what if* esHenlial Now, to 
discugn^ them^trlves from this difhcutty, and incon- 
ststcncy in divino providence, of htiviti^' God's cansc 
carried on by wicked inf>trumeDtfc, and u|Km the worst 
of moti\*ieii, they seem to distinguish three sort* of per- 
fton^, tiiiiX wtre lM!)miriiig for a reformation, in Kdward 
VI, \ r^gn, l'*irflt, the courtiers, uiuh^r the. dirn'tit^n of 
the protector ; all these, they candidly own, were highly 
guilty of ambition, avarice, and Racrile^. A second 
sort wen* thoi^* they an* pleased to rsdl gospellers, excited 
by Calvin and others, that liellowed out reformation 
from tho pulpit, without cither fear or wit. A tliird 
sort they would have to have been certain moderate 
bti^hopi* and divinea, who moved in order, and with gnMit 
decency, in the work they had undertaken- By ranp;tn|^ 
persons under these heads, they wijuld signify, tliat the 
moderate ri'formers wt re not chargeable witii the in* 
jtu(tiee.H and !4a<?rileges of the rest, that hns^ied theitiselve» 
with reforming the church. But, when the king him- 
sdf, who h head of the ehureh, concurs tii all things 
with hi34 Micrilegiotij; miuliitry ; when the vtsiton?, who 
were ap)>oiiiti*d to see justice done, made themselves 
iiotonoUK by misrrpreseiitntlons and oppression : when 
preacticrs were allowed, by authority, tn ridicule the 
sacred mysteries of religion ; when the prelates, who 
were e*itahlished by Chri-st, to rule and govern the 
church, were obliged either to be silent, or talk in ihc 
Iter of the itiiiii*trj : when all, in fine, were employed 
either in giving or executing the scandalous orners, it 
wiil be a hani tatk to find out thoae moderate rcformcra, 
who carried on the work in a legal and evangelical 
iDanner. On the other hand, eatholieg look upon the 
disadvantageous eliarHetec^ whiHi several of their ad- 
venariea give of these first reformers, to be a stroke of 

provKlenee^ to disrover the nakediieim of their cause; 
uihI that tlicir peiw were invUihly HirecUnl by Almti^lity 
<io(i ill favour of Uie old rrli^ioii, Now% that persons

Giihmittiug, is apparuat, from severaJ lustanccs. The 
hisliops acceptecl of tht^ir ili^^nitiefij upon any tcrnis 
whati^ver. For, " ir nil Hie vacancies of weft, there were 
a great many of their best laiicl^ tahcu from them, and

Bpssions of his hvc ; and Ridley, j*oou aftPi" his entry into 
Loudon, ivas forced to give away four of the best manors 
jrf hi.s *ee, in one d:iy. Tliese two were the greatest 
Arourite^ among all the bishops; of thai day."' When 
a coinm]«»^oD na« granted to rt^form the nnivemtv of 
Oxford, " the vitiiton* were w) fond of novelty, ihat they 
ridiiniled the university degrees, and discouraged the 
exercises. They called the universities a seat for Mock- 
beads, and tbe 5tew« of the whore of Babylon ; and the 
sctioote had eommouly no better name thfui the devir^ 
chapel."' Mr. Camden tells uh, that '* saerile^ous av«^ 
riee ravennnsly invaded ehiircli livings, eolleges, ehant- 
ries, hoApital^, and places dedicated to the poor, as 
thingH superstitious; ambition and emulation among the 
nobility, presumption and disobedience among the eom- 
mon people, grew so extravagant and insolent, that 
Knj^huul seemed to be in a dowu-n^ht fri'nzy."^ Tlie 
preat^hcrfi of those days, even those that wiTe ehosen to 
fill the best pulpita, observed no decorum, and appeared 
to he carried away with enthusiastic raptures, in th*?ir 
declamatione. '*Sueh a peeeancy of humour began then

that they mnde one cniifuficd chaos; and though* out- 
■w&rdly, men seemed to be under the same rotation, 
they were, inwardly, under a ooiitiiitml di*Eraction, every

misrppresenting the tlic promise^ they speak of, 
wafi no more than a bare intimation, that nothing should 
■be attempted, as to religious matters, by eompukion, or 
in an illep^al way. For more than this was not in her 
power to promise, seeing she eould not divine what the

lied upon from the Malk, by a French officer, at their 
le|)Girture, and asked, by way of drrision, whi?n tliey 
id<^igned to \isit Prance agninr the English gentlemmi 
^ihixh " when your bids are greater than onrs." Tcm- 
rpcnU fiUccciiSj however, is no proof of a nation *s being 
more in favour i^iih the Alnnghly- In the lauguagc of 
[the Scripture^*, it i» oftt'ii tlie conlniry. Yet so far the 
olinenation may be allowed, that the loss of temporal 
dominions, and tlie lass of the true faith do often concur.

were unfit for the blesftins. For» after a short roi^ni of 
five yearsj four months, and eleven days, queen Mary 
was cut off, November \7, 1558, ageJ 43, to make wayd 
for a rtueeessnr, who, fur a while, was in sus|)ense ; but 
at last found it convenient to strike in ^ith the re-

witli one, at the end of this volume, whereby it vrUl ap- 
pL^iir. ill how rtitferciit ii inamiep tha eboiige was cm- 
bract'd in ibis reigiu lo whut it was in tbe two former 
of Heury Mil, and Edwnrd VL' It oanuot be denie 
but that then? was a surprising t'ompbiiMun-t- iind iJiin

Tbe gcneralitj- of tht-ra submitt(*d to tlic will of on arbU 
trarj' and tjTannical king : but, as tbey were under a 
coiitirmnl restraint, and tht? ronveni*?iices of life were an 
ovvr-bidiiiiire to futurity, it was ralher a eorruption in 
murtds, llimi an t-rrtir in fiiitli, ibat OL'C";t*iniiwl tbrir 
defection. That this wa» their caM.-, apjjears from seve- 
ral circuuistantcs, which attended the* change, viz, the 
ujuvillin^iea^ they showed in complying ; the ambiguous 
title of head of the church ; the fq)eedy return of most 
of tJie bi&h[>i>^ in t!ie siicceedhig reigji nf Kdwaid VI,; 
while tht^ infrridr clergy, ftir thr Eiiust part, wcrr viCBn 
of Bray, conforming more for bread, than out of prin- 
riplc. But what chiefly demonstrated tlie dii^poE^ition 
of the nation, wae the general profeKf^ioii of the catholic 
religion, when queen Mary ascended the throne. There 
was, indeed, an mecnisiderablt^ timiiber of tli*? reformer!*, 
who diKsenti-d during her reign, and, g<»ing abroad, 
settled at Strosburg, Frankfort, Geneva, Zurich, Kc. 
But then, as to the number of those that opposed the 
refonnalion, the tirnt of queen Klizabcthj according to 
tht' calculation of Caiadcu and Hcylin, there were four- 
teen bishops, twflve deans, twelve aiehdeaerms, six 
abbotf^ and abbcwscs, fifteen heads of houses of the uni- 
versities, fifty prebendaries, and eighty rectors;"'' which, 
tbey eay, was a very small number, when compared with 
tbe whole body of eeelesiastics, *' But then, we are to 
know withal, that many who were cordially affected to 
the interest of the church of Ilomc, dispensed with tlirm- 
8olvc£ in these outward confonnities, wliich some of 

trtnty ilnclon m hcvfrul rJU'iiUii-ii." Hi- Eilfiii ('i>iit|iiUrN; On^ Jiir^i'lncoD* pII

to the inclinations of alUlLegnveriLing part of tlti^ clergy, 
or, at leasts of a great majority ; and thiil they prole^^ttd 
jgomst it. The bi^op^ were idl deprived, and impri- 
B>Ded, on that aec-ount. The convocation met, a« the 
n!^der has >^'t'ii, and sub^Tibt'd to a profession of fidtli, 
dircrily ccwitrary to the refornird dortrine. C»reaL 
iHimberA of the most eminent clersrj'mpti went abrorul ; 
ind there was ocnree nny nniversity, eithfr in Flanders* 
France, or Italy, but one or niuve nufzht be found in

&vrhik\ ID hopes that the queen wonld relent, and thin^ 
come about ntrain. But their hopes vAniKhinC' they for- 
sook their benetiees, and followed their CLiuntry men over 
seas. There wa.^ not a provitiee tliron^h nil Kn^luml, 
where several of inin-n Mnry'** eh'rK:y did not rrsidt.-, and 
were commonly wilU-d the old priests. They served an 
chaplains in privnn* famihcs. Their names and places

Anarcity of peraons sumarntly qualified to instruct the 
people. " It muflt be knomi/' saith Anthony Wood, 
" that, in the be^nniug of the rei^ of (juplhi Elizabeth, 
the university of" Oxford was so empty, affer the ealfao- 
lie^ had left it, upon the altemlioii of religinri, thai thero 
wiL* very seldom it sermon preatrln^i in the «niven*ity 
church c!nUud St- Mm\" And, in ouother phtcc, he 
addd. " there was not oue then [nu. 1561] in that so- 
ciety [of Mertou collef^e], that could^ or would, preach _ 
any public sermon in the eolk-^- turn; sueh was thef 
scarcity of thp-ologisls, not only in thnt hoiiiio, but gene- 
rally throughout the university."^ The samp Oxford, 
historian also ^:ivc9 us BC^'cml ptirticulars of this grandj

ejec'tLtl oul of Nl'w college oiiiy ; wvirnoulofSt- Johu'l 
college ; and great numbers out of tlie colleges of St^l 
Mary Mogdiden. Lincolu. and Trinity; so that the nm- 
vtrr^Jty seemed to be entirely destroyed. He tells uft, 
moreover, tJiat the persons left wer« few, and so illite^ 
rate, that an order eame out far every one to eon over^ 
tln^ bibU\ and le^^Mjus, bein^ uruible to read i hem dis- 
tinctly otherwise : that a like order eame out for liberty 
to make use of the TOmmon-prayer in the Latin tongtie, 
there bein(f some danger of losing that lan^mi^c in the 
uniTersily: and that Thomas t^ainpoii, and Dr. Hum-

were the only persons that eould preach with any rei>u-

being diicfly by the oiaiiagtmrnt of Itiy-couiinUr^ioncrfi, 
they did nol forget themsclvcfi ui>on so favourable an 
occasion. " If this Uiiage had been practised iipou ttie 
qutfeu's wanl.K a*^ tliey fell : had tliere hf^eii a bill broii^hi 
ill, to give the crown imvst of tljf manors of the teni)K)nil 
lorda, when they happened to die, mid k-ave tbeir heir 
a minor ; had t^ueh a bill bei^u brought Ju, we UL-ed not 
question its liuvitif^ been thrown cHit at the iin^t reading;* 
For why should u iniiior be ousted of his inheritance, 
without any faults of Ins am^i^stors, or l»is own? If, 
when he sued ont hia livcryj the beet part of his estate 
bad been tletaineri ; if lie harl been foreed u]H>n on un- 
equivalent exchange, and had nothing but a poor re 
mainder of his birth-right left him ; had thii« been tl 
jHiint, the (jnestion is. whether he wouldnntlmvc^ though 
the crown had over-rated the troublf^ of lieing a gnar 
dian, and taken loo mncli for protection ? To tell hi 
his estate is legally conveyed away, and his right Trans-^ 
ftrred by act of iwrlianient, wonid scarcely nuike him 
easy. Such an answer ji^ve-s little relief. It only eliucbeft 
the nLiKfortuiir^f aTid lenv&s the man without remedy. 
And therefore, peradventure, his thoughts mi^ht be so 
nnjtinous, as to fancy he had hard measure. * • • As tofl 
the parallel, I shall ouiy obsen e that the patrimony of the" 
church is settled upon suecessiou^ and hni* the force of 
the Ntrunp:ei«t entail. Not to menlion that the lioly re*^ 
yenucA were given, to maintain the honour and interest" 
of religion, and are vested, as it were, in the diviuc 
majesty. To which may be added, that the queen had 
lately sworn to maintain the rights of the ehureb, a^_ 
her coronation. It mfty be observed farther, tliat on^f 
rcjnarkahle eonsidenilion for granting the monasteries 
to king Henry VUL was not thought neceffwry to thia^ 
bill. For the 31»t of Henry VHI, c. 13, fict^ forth it^ 
the preamble, that the religious liou^^es had been freely 
surrendered into the king's hand>i<, without any manner 
of force, coaction, or compulsion. But here no such

to ail imle[icjuieacy, even iu n\attei:s of faith: and the 
Bee of Komc is deprived of ftll thoae perquisites and

|v>ning tbt^ iligniry of him, who was ?niprcnic pastor of 
God'* rhurch, viz, annates, pi^vr-pencr, antl other Ix-no- 
volencts, which the monaroh« of Rnghmfl had ercr 
bestowed upon the holy see, for the pui-poae uicntionci). 
Then, baxnng banished the pope's aiithority, he fidU 
upon his opm clergy at home, and declares himself to be 
the fountain of all their power and jnris<iiet'uin, lioth 
temporal and spiritual; and that nW thr-ir »ynodical 
sanctions and decrees, concin-ninff errors, abuses. &c.. 
Were void, and of no aeeount, without his cnncnrrcnce 
and approl^ation. By this step, the ehureh was swal- 
lowed up in the state, and the whole aJfair of religion 
jibti'i'd njinn the nante fnof with ruiilt'. iiial iiianiifarturi^K,

ated tithes; a method both then, and ever since, com- 
plained of by their own clergy. For, besides the ancient 
claim the chyrch had to tithes, "the miRchief that has 
acrnied to the church of Englaud hy appropriJilions,

I cannot tell whether the j>upremc yovernins party, from 
1641 to IfifiO, may be biiTioiired with die title of ms 
formcn*. If so, they bnialied Henry Vlll/s project very 
completely, by seizing the laude belonging to bishops, 
deatif?, chapters, &e., and might have elinched the whole 
affiiir of reforming^ if, in imitation of their brethren, in 
llothind and other places, they had striiipetl the jwru- 
chial dcTgy of all their tithes, mid only allowed them a 
ftnbBisteuee, by way of contribution. This would liavc 
been an effectu?d way of taming the eceleaiastical body, 
made them wholly dependent, mid Ku^ceptible of any 
impre^^ion. It would then he \i\ their choice, either to 
starve, or to embrace any cived, whicli the civil ]M)wrr

Lastly, to provide for the future state of the reforma-

and astonishment of all the nations in Europe^ contrived 
to have Mary, queen of Scots, brought to the block ; 
who b^ng a zealous Cathohc, and next heir to the

well-being of the reformation.

tion was drawn up niraiuRt tlie present ncl mini titration 
the house, and sipied by a ]ar\iv majority of the stu- 
dents. The principal beads of the accusation were, that 
the president^ Clemirk, was not. (jualified for the place; 
that llitt two JeTSiiit^ the preset and ]>roour*il^)r, were 
maltreated ; and, wlmt wad tlic capital grierancc, that 
the WtUJimen were, upon all occasions, preferred to the 
English. Great pains were taken, to compose these 
differences; and the protector seemed resolved th 
those, that would not obey the president, should be e 
peiled. To prevent Miis, thirty-three of the schohitpi, 
Englishmcti, voluntarily left the collc^-; rc«>lving to 
return to l)ouay and Uheimfi, or to Entrlajid. ITiey 
ren^ained two days in Rome, after their desertion ; 
during which time, tlie Jes^uits not only took care to

and it was concluded^ that they ?*hould all return to the 
college, with an at^urancc of bein^ macle eo^y, in a little 
time, a» to Dr. Clenock. Meanwhile, several schemes 
were proposed, and Dr. Allen, presiitleni of Rlieiuib- col- 
lt*ge, e^onf^uhed uikjii the uiaHer. One of the proposals 
wa5, that Dr, Clenock should be continued custosj or ,

£rumiu might tftke an bc4!aaioD to speak hu pleasure of priacea, he 
pajeth home, u rouadlj, aa biahopd h&ve been of fate touched in pleas, 
And Huch places of Scripture as we have used to allege for the state of 
princes, he wresEeth and wiadeth them bo, as, if Ihe people read them, 
Bitd bdieved him, they would atlerwards small r^^rd that qllegatioD of 
them : and, If Erusmus did truly, and that the Scripture bound him so 
to 9»ft it were more tolerable (for truth must have place) : but, when 
rl is done in some place utitruly, and Id some place wantonty, to checL 
dut estimate, it can be no good doctrine among people, that should 
obey. And this book of Faraphrasla is not like the other cxpofitioas 
of Scripture, where the author Ap«akelh in his own person ; for Eras- 
mus taketh upon him the evangelista' persons and Christ s person, and 
enterpriseth to fit up Christ s tale and his vords : as, for example^ where 
the Gospel reheaneth Christ's speech, when he aaid, " Give to lEie em- 
peror, that is the emperorB" (by which apeech we gather, and truly 
gather, that Christ confessed the emperor to have a duty], Erasmus 
vrites it with an JF, after this M>rt,*^ IF ifure be any thirty due to Ihem:" 
which condition Christ put n<it to tt, but spate plainly, ^^ G'we to Cesar 
Uu iXinfft wAiVA are Cesar's, and unto God the things thai are God's." 
Aim] I write the very words of the Paraphra^ia, &a they be La English ; 
(at I bare the book with me ; and so shall no man pay, that I mbreport 
the book. The words be these: — '*Rendfr, there/ore, unto Cesar, if 
mmy tkingt appertain uato Cesar ; butyjirst of all^ render unto God the 
ikiuys that appertain vnto God: meaning thai it is no hurt unto godii- 
tuu, if a man, being dedicate unto God, do give tribute ttnto a profane 
prince^ although he ought it not." TLiese be the words in the book or- 
dered to be set forth: wherein what needeth Erasmus to bring in doubt 
the duty, when God putteth no doubt at all ? It were too long to write 
to your grace every fnuH ; this one I put for example, where Erasmus 
doth corrupt Christ's words, with a condition, which Christ spake not. 
The other places of railings would encumber your grace overmuch ; 
bnt, aa I write, your grace shall find true, that whatsoever might be 
■poke to defame prince;^' government, is not left unspokeU' Bishops 
be more gently handled, Erasmus makt-th them very kiogs of the 
Goflpel, and caileth the true kin^ of the worid profune king.^. Bi^ope 
have the sword, he Kaith, of God given^ that ia to mjt the Go:«pcU 
Profane princes, as be caileth them, have a sword committed unto them, 
and by Homer, he salth, be called ** pastors of the people/" This n»at- 
ter is within the compass of the PaniphtB^i!4, if it be not left out; with 
a commendation also of Thomas Becket of Canterbury, in e^communU 
eating the king of the realm, that then was, by implication, for the 
manor of Oifordf which the ting, as he rehearseth, then with'irld. It
