This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

Scd operae pretium eft cognofcere, qua artc fidem hiftoria 
fu« adftruat. Prium ftrenue dcbacchatur in Galfredum, ut 
cjus auTofitatera elevet, & f uae yaniflimaB vanitati pondus, ro- 
bur, vericatem etiam accumulet. Deinde, quem tot faevis 
verbis ante lancinaverat, cogjtur homo impudentiflimus per 
bonam.antiquioris hiftoriag partem fequi. At huic impudeniiaB 
venia certe danda eft, quia alium,'quem refte fequeretur, au- 
torem prorfus nullum habuit. Ufque adeo tamen fui imme- 
inor non fuit, quin obiter in ducem fuum, tanquam fatuum 
$c menddcem, multo fale, ut eft mire argutus, lepidus, face- 
tus, luderet. Atque hoc non alio ab co nomine faftum, 
quam ne ulio approbare modo videat.ar, quem prius in- 
teftaius eft. 

Fieri hic poteft, ut aliquis mihi objlciat, Codrum non efle 
primum, qui Galfredum fugillavit, & alios extare fcriptores, 
quorum autoritate in primis hiftoriae fuaBlibris non raro ufus 
eft. Ad haec ego breviter in praefentia refpondebo, Gulielmi 
Pafvi, canonici Novoburgenfis, verba minoris efl^e pretii, 
quam ut in confutandis illis libenter velim laborare. Fuit illc 
ctenim digniflimus, quicumCodrum conferas, maxime in cogni- 
tione antiquiiatis Britannicae. Porro, quanium ad Rom.anos, 
qui de rebus noftris modo breviter, modo concife, modo pa- 
rum vere fcripferunt, nemo ex illis aliquid falrem memoria 
dignum de Britannia, quod ego fciam, ante CaKfarem edidit. 
Et omnia qnae Caefar fcripfit, quantumcunque illius diftis 
Codrus tribuat, mihi non videntur e tripode profefta, quem- 
admodum neque alia multa, quae poftea a Latinis autoribus 
de Britanniis pofteritati tradita funt. 

At nunc, ut Romanorum autoritas, qua frequenier utitur, 
iileat, objicict alter Gildam Bannochorenfem, & Bedam Gi- 
rovicenfem monachos, quorum teftimoniis, velut quibufdaoi 
vernis floribus, primos hiftoriae {ixx campos interpolat. tantum 
abeft-, ut neminem prajter unum Galfredum habeat, quem ia 
cruenda antiquitate fequatur. Hujufmodi objeftiones mc 
uunquam ad palinodiam adigent. Non me latet, libellum 
circumferri titulo Gildae^ quamvis dodli vehementer de autorc 
dubitent, in quo paucuia quaedam de Britannia florente levi- 
ter referuntur, & aliquanto plura de eadem, gladio, fame, 
pefte ad internecionem fere laborante, inculcantur. Scd 
quid hoc rei, quod qualiacunque illa non dum bene a Codro

aut urbmm, quid populorum aut rituum, quid denique quod 
ante Romanum nomen cogmtum in pretio fuit ? Si Gildas 
Britannus tam paruin in hac parte prodefle potcft, quanto 
minus Bcda, homo Anglus, qui licet multis eflet virtutibus 
clariflimus, genti tamen Britannae infcnfus, & toto fere vitab 
fuae tempore intra monafterii fepta ciaufus, nec multum vo- 
luit, aut potuit antiquitatem illuftrare ? Sim vanus, nifi pra?- 
ceptoribus Romanis, pauciflima modo demas, caque non ad- 
modum magni momenti ufus fit in libro primo ecclefiafticae 
hiftori», ubi de rebus Britannicis, veluti in tranfcurfu, ali- 
quam facit mentionem, 

Haec nunc quse dixi bmnia fi aequus judex in acervum con- 
geflerit, quodammodo probare videbuntur, multa efle in hi- 
ftoria Codil, quae meriro acccpta feferat Galfredo. Quid igi- 
tur cauflae eft, quod de bono autore tam male fentiat ? Certc 
haec prima eft. Galfredus, homo flritannus, Arturium re- 
gem, Pritannorum decus inclytum, praedicat, laudat, & ad 
lydera tantum ncn extoUit. In qua parte fecutus eft fidem 
vetuftiflimae hiftoriae, quam a Gualtero, archidiacono Oxoni- 
enfi, interpretandam accepit. Invidet hanc laudem barbams 
hofpes Arturio, princip; olim cum potentiflimo, tum de Bri- 
tannis optime merito. Invidet & Galfredo Arturii nomcn. 
Nec fic contentus, modoclam, modo aperte loquitur, fcribit, 
fentit, nullum unquam fuifle regem apud Britannos nomine 
Arturii illuftrem. Quanquam ne folus fapere videretur, eum 
inter reges in fua hiftoria ponit potius, ut genti noftrae mO- 
rem gerat, quam quod tale quicquam ex animo fcribat ; id 
quod facile apparet cum ex aliis locis, tum etiam ex illo ubi 
lepide & fefHve, ut fibi videtur, in ejus fcpulchrum, quod eft 
Gleflbburgi * Smeriarum, jocatur. At ego tam certis, claris, 
veris argumentis, non dicam tam multis, probare poflTum, 
Arturium fuifle,quam Codrus Caefarem. Lubet itaqueingra- 
tiam Autiquariorum fubtilius hanc rem traftarc. 

Arturius, Utheri Pendraconis & Igernae filius, nomea i 
Romana nobilitate, quemadmodum & alii id temporis Bri- 
tanni multi, traxit. Nam Arturiorum nomen apud Romaoos 
darum fuifle vel ex Juvenale liquet, qui Satyra ter tia fic fcribit :

ne quis ignoret, qui dc rebus noftris proprio Marte privatam

Gallofridus vero, antiquo cxemf)Iari, fupra quam cuiquam

yow have purchafed fo great an intereft in this difcon-

have been pleafed to heap upon myfelf, the meaneft of yowr

tacit recordation of both, had oot that kind remembrance, 
which I reccived from yow by Mr. Palmer, fomeVew mi- 
nutes fince, feconded by the prefent opportunity of fafe con- 
veyance by Mr. Patr. Youog, invited, or indeed extorted 
from me this acknowledgement, which is no more mine, 
than tbe voyce of the publick, fo far as difcrerion will per- 
mitt us to piake it publick : that however the condition of 
this pkce be now fo defperate, that falus ipfa fervare non

By yowr good adls and prudent manage, our fix month$ havc 
been fpun into two years, and it has been thus far verified 
upon us by yowr means, nec capti potuere capi. But novT 
the decretory day is come, Fuimus. That tempeft, which fo 
long hover'd, has now fallen fo heavy upon our heads, that 
all our pilots have forfaken the helm, and let the (hip drive. 
The Pro-Vice-Chancellors, Proftors, and other OfHcers and 
Minifters of the Univerfity have withdraWn themfelves. I 
Biight add much (but I fear this may be too much) of this 
kihd, 'as the fenfe of the moft and beft in this place, who fly 
fo high upon the point of loyalty aud privilegc, as if they 
were ambitious of fuffering. For my felfe, (and tho I have 
fittle correfpondence with particulars, I believe I am not iiaf' 
gular) I could be well enough contented to fit down with a 
Confeflbur*s place, and not envy my betters the glory of this 
martyrdom. I cannot think, that we are bound by any obli- 
gation of law or confcience from acknowledging my Lord 
of Pembroke for our ChanccUour. But for the newdefign*d 
Proftors and Heads of Houfes (Chrift-Church excepted) 
we do not fee, (with fubmiflion be it fpoken) why thofe 
CoIIeges, to whom the right of eleflion regularly belongs^ 
may not challenge it by vertue of the articles, by which the 
rights of all and every of them is protnifed^o be faved. And 
tho we know the praftlfe of former times is no rnle for thc 
prefent, nor the aAions of Kings any laws of Parliaments ; 
yet we cannot choofe but obferve the difference. Heretofore, 
when upon occafion Princes have fometimes depos'd the 
Proftors, fometimes preferr'd Heads of Houfes to Biftio» 
pricks; yet they alwaies left the eleftion of thelr Succcflbrs 
free, according to the refpeftive Statutes of the Univerfity 
and CoUeges, and did not otherwife interpofe, (tho* it was 
thought a point of their prerogative) than at moft by letters of 
recommendation, which were many times not obey'd, and 
that with impunity. Bu t whatfoever yow pleafe to command, 
we mnft now obey ; and it willperhaps not at all offend our 
moft eager Adverfaries, if we choofe to do it, rather by fuf- 
ferance than compliance, which is already the refolution of a 
good many ; and perhaps his Turn is not farr of, who, tho he 
would not be over hafty to offer the Sacrifice of fools by a

S I R, 

IAm dellred by the Delegacy of this place to give you 
notice, that as foon as a Convocation can be caird (per- 
haps to morrow) it is intended to fend letters from the 
XJniverfity either to both Houfes, or to the Speakers, with 
Others to the Oxford Committee, and particularly to your 
felf, to intreat that fome provifion may be infertefd in the 
Ordinance now paffing concerning Deans and Chapters, 
whereby the Right of the Univerfity to fuch Prebends as have 
been ann^ed by ancient grants to the Profeflburs and places 
jnay be conferv'd. 
, Of this kind are, 

1. A Prebend in Chrift-Ch. Oxon. annes^ed to the Regius 
Profeflbur in Divinity by K. James 26^°. Aug. anno regni 3'***. 

2. A lay Prebend at Shipton belonging to the Ch. of Sa- 
rum, annexed to the Profeflbur of Civil Law by K. James 
'%o^'', Martii 15'°. Jacobi'. 

3. A Prebend in the Ch. of Worcefter, annex'd to the L. 
Margaret'8 Lefture by K. Ch*^»*les 5^°. Julii anno regni 3^^®. 

4. A Prebend in Chrift-Ch. Oxpn. annex*d to the Hebrew 
Header by KingCharles 19°. Junii anno regni 6^®. 

5. A Prebend in Chrift-Ch. annex^d to. the Univerfiry O- 
rator's place by King Charles 21**. Decembris \ 1°^**. Caroli. 

The Originals of thefe grants, under thebroad Sealsof K, 
James and K, Charles, are by this Bearer Mr. Blagrave to be 
bropght to you, which it was thought fit to difpatch before 
fcand, not knowing how foon there may be ufe of them. 

Befides thcfe latter- Augmeutatjons made to the' Profef- 
fpurs, their ancient Salary of 40/. per annum was at firft 
cbarg'(J «poa the Deaa and Chap, of Weftminfteri bur after-

wards W. Benfon Dean, and the Chap. of Weftminfter by 
thcir decd dat. 24^**. Julii anno Regni Hen. 8^1. 38®. made 
Qver to the King Lands of the faid Church to the ycarly 
value of 400/. on condition the K. {hou'd free them, thc D. 
andChapt. from the perpctuall maintcnance of ten Lefturers 
(viz. five in Oxon, and five in Cambridge) one of Divinity, 
Civil Law, Phyfick, Hebrew and Greek, in feach Univerfity, 
This the King did in this Univerfity by charging the D. and 
Chapt. of Chrift-Ch. in Oxford of his laft foundation with 
the paymcnt of thofe yearly Salaries to the Profeflburs. 

This Univerfity have right to prefcnt to a Chantry in the 
free Chappel at Windfore. Mr. Twine (in Apolog. Antiqu. 
Oxon. 1, 3. p. 320.) relates, that when the D. and Chapt. of 
Windfore refus*d to admit the Unlverfitic's Clcrk Chrift. 
Yonge, upon a tryal thercupon had 1568. (which muft be 
about jo"io. Elizabethae) judgment was given for the Uni- 
verfiiie. 

I have not yet feen any Records of that Judgment ; but 
if it be thought fit not to continue that title to the Univcr- 
fity, yct fomc allowance may be made for it by Commuta- 
tion to the maintcnance of any Aftuary to be perpetually 
employcd to traufcribe fuch raritics for the ufe of the Library, 
whercof we cannot obtain the Origlnals. But this is only my 
private fancy and ftole upon me unawares. 

I neither dare nor need to advife any thing about the mau- 
ner of pafling the Salvo in thc OrLiinance, whcther with fpe- 
ciall mention of ali the p;ii tlculars &c. then I fcar whether 
fomewhat may not be omltted that may concern cither the 
Univcrfity or particular Colleges, tho* at prcfent I remember 
no more. 

While I am writing I receiv'd a note from fome of the 
new Prejbends of Chrift-Ch. defiring that you wou*d pleafe 
to procure tHat thcre may be a fpeciall refervation for the 
Lands &c. of that Ch. in the Ordinance. Thcy intcnd to 
make a particular application to you for that Houfe, but by 
reafon of their Dcan's abfence (whom they expeft this night) 
they cannot yet convcniently do it. 

I did obferve upon the perufall of our ordinary Gazettes 
about a fortnight fince, that there was fome controverfie 
betwixt my L*^. of Cherbury^s yonger Son and Mr. Whitaker 
the Stationer, about thc right of imprinting my Lord's Hift. 
of Hen. 8. and that it was referred by the Lords to thcLord 
North to determine. Truly, S% I fee not btrt that the 
Univerfity may put in a claim, and perhaps the beft, my 
L**. Cherbury in his life time having lcft the moft correfted 
Copy to the Univerflty Library, wherc it yet rcmaines,

WhcQ I fay moft correAed, I have this ladocemeat to per«

Mr. Whitaker has fince employed his Soo in Law Mr. Bow- 
man a Stationer of this Towne, to procure fome collation or 
tranfcript to be made out of our Copy, I mean fome part 
of it. 

I am nbt to mingle my private Relatbns with the bufinefs

I conceive you dcfired thefe in order to theEdltionof

look upon what I here fend yow tranfcribed out of a book 
of John Lawarne, Monke of Worcefter, of his own hand. 
The book contains feverall pieces, fome Sermons of his, 
fome Leftures, upon the Sentences, upon the Bible, his 
Exercife at Oxford for his degrees in Divinity where he pro- 
ceeded Dr. 9, Apr. 1448. 

Tho' it needs not, yet yow may pleafe ad pag. 326. to take in 
the teftimony of Porphyry, concerning the placeing of their 
Images in the Heathen temples (and iheir Shekinah) in his ' 
<5e antro Nympharum in Odyflea, where (in the firft pagc of 
the (heete) he makes the queftion, why the Poet in that 
place ftiould afCgne the north gatc to men, and the fouth to 
the gods, and did not rather in that cafe make ufe of the eaft

Hond. Sir, 
T TPoa occafion of the bufinefle of Tythes now under con- 
V^ fideration, fome, whom it more nearly concerns, have 
been pleafed to enquire of me, whatmight be faid, as to the 
civil right of them, to whom I was not able to give any 
better direftion, than by fending them to yowr Hiftory. 
Happiiy it may feem ftrange to them ; yet I am not out of 
hopes, but that work, (like Pelias hafta) which was lookt 
upon as a piece, that ftruck deepeft againft the divine, will 
*^ord the ftrongeft arguments for the clvilrigbt; aud if

bury, being a coUedioD of fuch records, as coDcera*d the 
interefts of the Clergy, and to certlfie, whetber that affords 
any thing of prefent ufe. I am confident he has been mif- 
inform^d, nnd that the book he means was never fent nor 
hitended for thjs place, but was left by the Archbiftiop in 
the Library a^ Lambeth, Wheo that was defign'd and givea 
^o Cambridge, I was told, that book was mil&Dg ; but if ic 
were extant, I do not know what might be expe^ed froin 
it. It is a matter of more difficulty to me to imagine, what

. I find in St. Auftin (epiftola 49.) out of Porphyry, of their

matter of faft, I know not, whether it be worth the whiie 
ta Uke notice of that pafTage in Theodorus (or rathcr Dio-

(about 400. years after Chrift) they never apoftatiz'd froni .

Jews (if ever)' were in moft flagrant favour with the Em- 
perours ; yet that the Chriftians of tbofe days did not con- 
cdve themfelves oblidg'd by the Jewifti Judiciallsy may be 
colleded from that return of Bafil to (as I fuppofe the tamc 
Diodorus, Biftiop of Tarfus, touching the cde of a man's

3C0. years fincc, by one Conftantinus Sapiens. For fb I readl 
in the clofe of the book, and did fometime belong to the. 
MonafleryTJjf *Ecro9i7f8 in infula Chalce 

I cannot teli whether aoy of latter times, Carolofladius 
and the- Anabaptifts excepted, have raaintain'd the Jewifli 
Judkialls tobe univerfally and indifpcnfable bioding toChri- 
flians. How, our ordinary method is to have Aated the coq- 
troverfy, I know is beiow yow to take notice of. 

In thc folvlng of that qneftion in yowr 2**. letter, cbn- 

cerning thatpaflage in Photius*s Epiftlcs o( pug^ the founder 

of the Romifti name and nation, I fear I fhall do yow but 

little fervjcc. I read over that whole book in MS. feveral 

ycars before it came forth in print, and took fome notes 

thence, but none to this purpofe. When upon the receipt of 

yowf's I review^d ihe place, and found the Tranflatour com- 

plain of the fcribe's negligence, I had recourfe to the original 

MS. where tho* I found the complaint not altogether caufe- 

lefs, yet to the mjattcr in queftion that recearche was ufciefs. 

Only it ferv*d to excufe the Author from that ffoy^ooco^avh 10 

ihe narration : tor where the printed copy read Wo^iag &c. 

wffiyt*£v@-j the MS. hath it >.iyoi amf^v®" fo as therc is no 

need to juftify the Soloecifme by other parallels, fuch as Hoef- 

chelius in the beginning of his notes upon Photius*s Bibl. 

hath obferv'd both in him ^nd other, Authors. Befides, this 

dtd a little more confirm me in the opinion that this tale of 

fag came to PHotius only by hearfay, and that hc had it not 

from any written ftory : for fo xcyeTa* >^yos here, and ol taSra 

>gyovT£5 after, feem to imply. And that he muft have itfrora 

fome Jew, feems moft credible, becaufe he fays, the Rcport- 

crs of it were fuch, as fet light by all the Greek relations 

(and many of thofe are confonant to the Roman ftories) con- 

cerning that matter. But yow will fay, " jam dic, Pontice, de 

" tribus capellis." Truly, Sir, tho' I give no great faith to 

any of them, yet I (hall vcnture to fet down my conjeftures, 

which (bating that circumftance of the tribe of Benjamin) 

tho' they come not home, yet.may look towards the mark. 

I . What if the Relater miftook pug for p^f^ ? You know thc 
refemblance of the Q to the Q claufum (or finale) is fo 
great, as hath impos'd upon the Readers, and given occafion 
to miftakes in greater matters. And if it be admitted herc, 
it will (l think) be no hard matter to fetch in fome one, 
either of thofe men or women, Rhomus or Rhoma in Feftus 
and elfewhere, from whence Rome is faid to have had it'9 
.firft denomination.

that Etymon in Feftus, *' Italia difta, quqd magnos italos,

Rhos his coming ioto Italy ? 

3. Or rather, may not thzt 'Pauriva; in the fame Author 
(Dion, Halic. L, i.) from whora he affirms the Tufcans to 
have caird themfelves, without any great violence be capable 
of application to this pSis ? 

I am loath to omit a conceit, which oui' common friend 
Mr. Pocock fuggefted. thisit was. As roffo in Italian fignifies 
red, fo (he fays) it is ordinary with the Jews and Arabs tb. 
call the Romans Edomites with an epithet (but he did not 
remember the word) fignifying rufus, yellow, or red hair'd« 
If this make nothing to pa^, will it noc fit with what yow have 
elfewhere obfcrv'd out of Petrus Riga of the golden beards<of 
thofe, that worIhipp*d the calf, or direft to fome conjefture 
of the grouad (5f the common pradlice of the painters in re- 
prefenting Judas the traytor (as thcy do conftantly) with a 
red head ? But I have already too much abus'd yowr time 
and patience in this point. 

To yowr ^^*. letter. i. for Zonaras's Eplftles, I neverbe- 
fore heard of any -fuch book, and am cbnfident enough it is 
not to be found here. Then for the title of ftsTuxwjf of©- in 
Gruter, I make fome doubt, whether the word do fignifie a 
idignity or no. We have not thofe Epiftles of Bembus, 
whence that infcription was taken ; but the efcapes in it may 
be correfted by that other copy of it, exprefs'd from the 
originall in brafs by Pignorius in his explicatio menfae Ifiacae 
(fol, .32. b.) and having not yet met with any thing on 
which to build a certainty, I adventure from the confideration 
of the fubjcft matter of the infcription it fclfe to niake tjic 
conjefture. 

Seeing the dedication of the Paftophorion, there fpokcn 
of, was intended to the honour of Ifis, and thofe other, there 
mention*d, her cognate Gods of Egypt, I ftiould think, that 
Theophilus the founder was a Fellow of the CoUege ; or to 
give yow my fenfe in the words of Apuleius (Milefia i ima.) 
one, ** e coetu Paftophorum, quod facrofandli collegii nomen 
eft ;" one that bore a part in thofe folemnitics : and that /xsTux- 
nfop®- was intended to expreffe his particular office, viz. in 
the pompe and proceffion of the Goddefs ; he bore her black 
pall. For yow know, that the Priefts, who in thofe " facra 
" potentiffimorum Deum proferebant infignes exuvias," (as 
the fame Author fpeaks) were called Paftophori ; and fuch as 
call them fo, " quod ferrent pallium Veneris, cui nomen 

• Paftos/' 



Zf6 Efifioltp quitdam cL tangbainiu 

Paftos,** (ay bat the fame thmg ; fioce Jfis and Venu^ (bjr 
die knowQ iFoKmnffMia among the Gods) are the fame perfon. 
And feeing m the defcription of Ifis there is affign^d fo bef 
*' palla^oigerrima (Apul. ibid.) fplendefcens atro nitore ;'* 
hence it is, that I conceiv*d, to avoid tbat mbke^^tov» or tauto- 
logy, which theinfcription had been guilty df, had it run tbttSy

&c. be cbofe ratber in the firft place to fabftitute fjiehaifnfof®-^ 
as a word more particularly denoteing the colour of the pall, 
wbich in tbofe pompes it was bis peculiar office to carry. 

The con.fideratioa of this and the neighbouring placeis \n 
Apuleius reminded me of rhat in Synefius coDcerning che 
Egyptian ue^iariifta^ which yow have fo well vindicated frocn 
former mifinterpretation, whether it might not be capable 
of fome farther illuftration from hence. The KxQirta tbere are 
fo like the ** ctfta fecretorum capax" bere, and fome other 
particulars fo much of kin, as made me think, wbether tbe 
Muftarai and KopLarnftov were not all one with the Paftopbori, 
Priefts, and Paftophprion, that part of the temple, where they 
iodg*d and kept their foiemn feafts ; and the ntaiJLaffu^ 
if not thofe feafts, then the antecedent proceffions or inttn^ 
tions : as alfo whether theGrammateas in Apuleius and Lucian 
(de facrificiis) do not referre to that third rank of Pricft^' 
whom (as yow have obfervM) Synefiu» ftiles (aKopn^ : and 
whether in that piacc of Lncian, 0-ofiruv be not put for

INTRODUCTION, 



SI N C E the Form of Matrimony in the Common Prayer 
Book hath been eftabliOied by AAs c^ Parliament^ there 
have been only Two Marriages of the immediate Childrea 
of the Crown publickly folemnized within this Kingdom, 
The firft was tbat of the eldeft Danghter of King James the 
Firft with Frederick Count Palatine of the Rhine, celebrated 
^ in February 1612-13, when each of thcm were above Sbcteea 
Years of Age, being both born in 1596. Theother waa. 
that of William Son and Heir of Frederick-Henry Prince of. 
Orange with Mary eldeft Daughter of KtngCharles the Firft^ 
upon the Second of May 1641, when that young Prince 
wanted fome Days of being Fifteen Years of Age, being 
bom on :^l^ May 1626, and the Princefs wanted Seven 
Months of being Ten Years old, being bom the 4th of 
November 1631 «. 

I thought proper to remark the Ages of the latter, in that 
the Ceremonial of that Marriage, as it is termed, acquaints 
vs that fome Forms, as the aftcing of the Banns, the dif- 
fheveling of the Hair in the Proceffion, the Wafers and 
Hippocras in the Church, &c. were omitted» which probabl/ 
were not obierved becaufe that Princefs, by a Proteftation 
interpofed in proper Time, might have vacated this Contraft; 
fo that upon fuch a Refufal ali the Solemnities» whatever 
they had been, would have been of no Validity. 

Though thefe Marriages, for that Term may in this Place 
be attributed to the later Solemnity, were performed with 
great Splendor and Magnificence, and the Heraids attended 
and performed the Funflions of their OfHce, yet no complete 
Narratives of tbe Rites ufed ii> them are entered in their 
JSooks, where there are only to be found a fhort imperfeft
