    BOOK 11 CONTINUED See the Latin Edition, 1559, p. 708. Ed. 1563, p. 1470. Ed. 1570, p. 2032. Ed. 1576, p. 1752. Ed. 1583, p. 1859. Ed. 1597, p. 1688. Ed. 1684, volume 3 p. 531. —ED. These, and many other interesting particulars relating to Cranmer, are introduced from the first edition of the Acts and Monuments; page 1470. See also the Latin edition, Basil, 1559, page 708, where his birth is recorded on July 2d, 1489. —ED. Afterwards called Magdalen College. —ED. “Cressy.” “A name,” says Fuller, “utterly extinct in that town (where God hath fixed my present habitation) long before the memory of any alive. But, consulting ‘Weaver’s Funeral Monuments of Waltham Church’ (more truly than neatly by him composed), I find therein this epitaph: ‘Here lyeth Jon and Jone Cressy, On whose soulys Jesu hav mercy. Amen.’” See Fuller’s Church History, book 5 page 179. —ED. Of this Campeius, and discourse of his legacy, read before. [volume 5 p. 48. —ED.] Dr. Stephen Gardiner was secretary to king Henry VIII at this time. —\parED. Note the glorious head of Dr. Stephen Gardiner. Mark this you papists, which so rashly judge the king’s divorce and the pope’s overthrow to have sprung of light causes Henry Cornelius Agrippa, of the family of Nettesheim, was born in 1486. As he was a man of an inconstant disposition, he was never fixed in any settled employment, being occupied. sometimes in the wars, and sometimes in delivering lectures in divinity. His treatise “De Vanitate Scientiarum.” — a dissertation in which he undertakes to prove that there is nothing more pernicious to man’s salvation than the arts and sciences — excited much enmity against him. After a chequered and unsettled life, he died at Grenoble in 1535. See Dupin, cent. 16, book p. 401. Bayle has noticed the facts which connect his name with Cranmer’s history in his “Dictionary,” article “Agrippa,” Note O. —\parED. August 23, 1532. —ED. March 20, 1533. —ED. See the First Edition, 1563; pp. 1471-1473.—ED. Here was craft in handling. Of this coming of the lord Cromwell and the two dukes to the archbishop read before, [volume 5 p. 265. —ED.] “Meed,” reward or merit. —ED. For a correction of some modern misrepresentations as to Cranmer’s behavior in this matter, the reader is referred to Mr. Todd’s Historical and Critical Introduction to “A Defence of the true and catholic Doctrine of the Sacrament,” etc. by Thomas Cranmer. (London, 1825.)

    Pp. 76-82. —ED. This secretary was master Ralph Morice, witness and drawer of this story. The archbishop married his second wife at Nuremburg. See the First Edition (1563), p 1473. —ED. “Manet alta mente repostum judicium Paridis, spretaeque injuria matris” — Virg. Aeneid. This Dr. Thornton, afterwards the bishop of Dover, was a cruel and wicked persecutor. The bishop was Dr. Heath, and bishop after of York. Rather eighteen days: see volume 7 p. 518.—ED. See the First Edition (1563), pp. 1475 (misprinted 1471), 1478.—ED. The words of the king, when Cranmer departed with the king’s signet: “Go thy ways! if thou deceive me, I will never trust bald-pate again while I live.” The sentences following, distinguished by asterisks, are inserted from the First Edition, p 1480. —ED. “Memor esto unde excideris, et age poenitentiam, et prima opera fac.

    Sin minus.” Revelation “Extra ecelesiam non est salus.” “Quia in inferno nulla est redemptio.” “Memor esto unde excideris.” Cypr. lib. 1 Epist. 6. Apud Tertul. de Praescript. cap. 37. —ED. That is, “Repent, and do thy first works.” “Qui convertere fecerit peccatorem ab errore vitae suae, salvam faciet animam suam a morte, et operiet multitudinem peccatorum suorum.” [Vide Erasmi paraphr.] “Illic trepidaverunt ubi non erat timor.” “Secundum duritiam cordis thesaurizas tibi iram in die irae” “Extra ecclesiam non est salus.” “Hujus temporibus (Gregorii III. 731) Alphonsus a populo Saracenorum imperium execrante rex Hispaniarum eligitur: de quo hoc memoratu dignissimum est, quod Recaredi cath. regis successor esse, atque catholicus rex cognominari voluerit.” Labbe Concilia, tom. 6.col. 1467. —ED. See Edition 1563, pp. 1480,1481.—ED. “Dyscolo,” i.e. o. Decreti pars I. distinct. 19, Section 5. apud Corp. Juris Canon. volume 1 p. 24. Edit. 1687. —ED. Note the worshipful reasons of Dr. Story, wherewith he proveth the pope’s supremacy. Dr. Story reasoneth, as though to feed with the word, and to govern with the sword, were all one. “Miserabilis necessitas, quae solvitur parricidio.” [Lib. 3. c. 12] Nay, the Pharisees cried not “Verbum Domini,” but “Templum Domini,” as the papists do now against the protestants. “Scriptum est.” “Mitte te deorsum.” “Mitte te deorsum.” So did king Hezekias and Josias down with monuments of idolatry, and are commended. Another false slander of Dr. Martin. “Lupi rapaces, pseudo-apostoli.” “Ex fructibus eorum cognoscetis eos.” Whether these be the fruits of the papists more, let the conversation of them both givs judgments. “Post camera in concupiscentia et immunditia ambulant: potestates contemnunt,” etc. “In diebus novissimis erunt periculosa tempora; erunt seipsos amantes, cupidi, elati, immorigeri parentibus, proditores,” etc. So, was St. Augustin first a pagan, then a Manichean, and then a catholic. “Justus Jonas,” senior, who was a man of considerable celebrity in his day. He was the tntimate friend of Luther, and attended the diet at Augsburgh in 1530, in company with Melancthon, Agricola, and G.

    Spalatinus. Jonas was born in 1493, and died in 1555, seven years after the publication of his catechism. A detailed account of his life is given in Gerdes’ “Introduct. in Hist. Evangelii, saec. 16: passim per Europam renovati” (Groningae, 1744) p. 247; and in Melchior Adam; “Vitae Germ. Theolog.” (Haidelbergae, 1628) p. 258. More particulars respecting the translation, which Cranmer appears rather to have superintended than executed entirely himself, will be found in the excellent preface to “A short Instruction into Christian Religion, being a Catechism set forth by Archbishop Cranmer,” etc., Oxford, at the Univ. Press, 1829. —ED. King Henry was not supreme head but only of his own realm. The pope will be universal head over all. See Edition 1570, in loc. —ED. “Perditio tua super te Israel; tantummodo in me salvatio tua,” ait Dominus per prophetam. Haereticum hominem post unum aut alterum conventum devita, sciens quod hujusmodi perversus est et delinquit, quum sit proprio judicio condemnatus.” Orig. in Apologia Pamphili. “Peccavimus cum patribus nostris, injuste egimus, iniquitatem fecimus.” “Delicta juventutis meae, et ignorantias meas ne memineris Domine.” “Salvator quum pro se et Petro dad jubebat didrachma, pro omnibus ipsum dari censuit a39 , ipsum enim constituit caput eorum.” St. Aug. in 75 quest.

    Quem errorera excusavit imperator, quod talibus ministeriis non esset assuetus.” Rivet. “Jesuits Vap.” cap. 28, Section 2. The other citation, to which Rivet alludes, is in paragraph 29 of this same chapter, from which we learn that the pope’s temporary groom was — the emperor Frederic Barbarossa. Helmoldus died in 1170. His Chronicle was first published at Francfort, in 1556. See also “Jewel’s Defence of the Apology,” pt. 4 chapter 7, div. 3. —ED. See Note (2) volume 7 p. 57l. —ED. “Contra Petrum, contra Paulum, contra Vetus et Novum Testamentum,” and that he, “plenitudine potestatis, tantum potest quantum Deus.” [Abundance of quotations confirmatory of this assertion will be found in bishop Jewel’s “Defence of the Apology,” pt. 3 chapter 1 div. 2, p. 313, Edition 1611. —ED.] See Edition 1563, p. 1483; from whence also the following letter of Cranmer’s to queen Mary is introduced, headed originally by Foxe, “Not before in print.” A copy is given in “Coverdale’s Letters of the Martyrs,” printed originally in 1564. See the reprint of this latter work, page 1. London, 1837. —ED. Because there was offense taken at this word, supreme head, it was declared in the queen’s style to be supreme governor. De Puteo. —ED. S. Mariae in Vita. —ED. Note with what justice and sincereity this catholic church doth proceed. Letters of protection and defense. a48 All the process, though with some slight variation, will be found, accompanied by illustrative annotation, in the “Pontificale Romanum; nunc primum commentariis illustratum, auct. Jos. Catalano (Romae, 1740),” volume 3 pp. 146-164. Among other Editions one was printed at Venice in 1520, and another at Rome in 1595; these two have afforded the means of correcting a few trifling errors in the Forms of Degradation following. —ED. “Cultellus, aut vitrum,” is the reading in the Edition of 1595. —ED. The secular state is ignominious, and disdained by the proud clergy! The introductory sentences throughout are abridged by Foxe; but the following is too characteristic to be so dismissed. “Tum pontifex degradator efficaciter, et ex corde, omni instantia, pro miserrimo illo derelicto intercedit apud judicem saecularem, ut citra mortis periculum vel mutilationis contra degradatum sententiam moderetur, dicens: ‘Domine judex,’” etc. Pontilicali. Ven. 1520, p. 203. —ED. It is happy this bishop had so much manners yet, to call him gentleman. This Farmer had lost all his hinds for receiving a priest in the Tower in king Henry’s time. John de Villa Garcia was a Dominican, a pupil of Carranza, and his companion during his travels in Germany, England, and Flanders. He was one of the greatest theologians of his age, according to Llorente; and so remarkable were his powers, and the successful exercise of them in the confutation of heresy, during his stay in England, that, according to another authority, the Protestants, “ad incitas redacti, insidias ejus vitae saepius struxerint, et ne in apertam vim prorumperent, nonnisi stipatoribus regiis comitatus prodibat in lucem,” — a very likely circumstance of course, to occur in the days of queen Mary! Villa Garcia was however, notwithstanding this his eminent catholicity, placed in the Inquisition, after his return from England, in 1559, upon suspicion of holding heretical sentiments, and his intimacy with Carranza. Being at length released, he resumed the office of teaching in Valladolid, and died there in 1564. — “Scriptores Ordinis Praedicat.” (Lutet. Paris, 1721,) tom. 2 p. 187; see also Llorente’s “Hist. of the Inquisition in Spain.” (Lond. 1826,)p. 316. —ED. See Edition 1563, p. 149. —ED. Strype observes, “There were several recanting writings, to which Cranmer subscribed one after another: for after the unhappy bishop, by over-persuasion, wrote one paper with his subscription set to it,” etc. “that would not serve, but another was required as explanatory of that.” “Nor could he escape so, but still a fourth and a fifth paper of recantation was demanded,” — “and lastly a sixth,” etc. On the morning of Cranmer’s martyrdom, the friars brought him yet a seventh declaration to subscribe, which he rejected with firmness, and made that declaration and prayer given at pages 87 and 88. Notwithstanding which, Bonner had the audacity to print this last recantation, with the other six as though the archbishop had really subscribed to it also.

    They bore this title: “All the Submissions and Recantations of Thomas Cranmer, late Archbishop of Canterbury, truly set forth in Latin and English, agreeable to the Originals, and subscribed with his own hand.

    Visum et examinatum per reverendum patrem et dominure, D.

    Edmundum Episcop. London.” See Strype’s Memorials under Mary, chapter 30: See more in the Revelation 2. Soames, upon Cranmer’s Recantation. Mr. Southey differs from Strype, and says, in his “Book of the Church,” vol 2 p. 220, “The probability is that Cranmer signed all equivocal Recantation, and that the other papers, five in number,” etc. “were fabricated by Bonner’s direction.” —ED. If Cole gave this judgment upon Cranmer when he had repented, what judgment is then to be given of Cole, who always perdured in error, and never yet repented. If all heretics in England should be burned where should Dr. Cole have been ere now? Lex non aequalitatais sed iniquitatis. “Hodie meturn eris in Paradiso.” “Dominus fidelis est, non sinet vos tentari ultra quam ferre potestis.” Corinthians 10. But that rejoicing lasted not long. [See p. 88. —ED.] See Edition 1263, p 1503. —ED. “Saturday being the seventh,” is the reading in Coverdale’s “Letters of the Martyrs.” and in the First Edition of Foxe, p. 1485, and is undoubtedly the true one. In some later editions of Foxe it has been altered to “Wednesday, being the twelfth;” but the 12th of September, 1555, fell on a Thursday, and was the day on which Cranmer, as he says just below, was brought before Brooks at St. Mary’s. See “Prccessus contra Cranmerum, in Strype;” Cranm. addend, p. 1073, Oxf. 1812; Wordsworth, Eccles. Biogr. volume 3 p. 570.

Item, exeommunicamus statutarios, et scriptores statutorum ipsorum, necnon potestates, consules, rectores, et consiliarios locorum, ubi de caetero hujusmodi statuta et consuetudines editae fuerint vel servatae; necnon et illos qui secundum ea praesumpserint judicare, vel in publicam formam scribere judicala.” Extrav. de Sententia excommunicationis. “Noverit.” [In the “Decret. Gregorii 9,” lib. 5 tit. 39. cap. 49. p. 276, Corpus Juris Canon. Edit. Paris, 1687, this excommunication will be found. Mark this well. Note how the papists and protestants both agreed in Windsor, the service of the church to he in the mother tongue. Auno 1549. “Jubemus ut omnes Episcopi pariter et presbyteri non tacito modo, sed clara voce, quae a fideli populo exaudiatur, sacram oblationem et preces in sacro baptismate adhibitas colebrent, quo majori exinde devotione in depromendis Domini Dei laudibus audientium animi afficiantur. Ita enim et Divus Paulus docet, in Epistola ad Corinth. Si solummodo benedicat spiritus, quomodo is qui privati locum tenet, dicet ad gratiarum actionem tuam, Amen? quandoquidem quid dicas non videt a54 . Tu quidem pulchre. gratias agis, alter autem non aedificatur.” [Novell. cxxxvii. Section 6.] Note the saying of Gregory. Joseph Stephens, a Spaniard who emigrated to Rome and lived there, and was much engaged in the ceremonials of the papal court, wrote “De adoratione Pontificum, pealum osculatione, gestatione, et coronatione;” Romae, 1579, and Colonira, 1580. From this Rivet has made selections to show the accepted doctrine at Rome upon such points, and to refute, or rather expose its arrogancy. Rivet. Jesuira vapulans, sive castig. not. in Balsac, cap. 28; Antonio Biblioth. Hisp.

    Nova, tom. 1 p. 820. —ED. Note this conclusion. Mark the errors of the papists in their doztrine of the sacrament. “Qua mensura mensi fueritis, eadem remetietur vobis.” The letter in Latin is inserted from the First Edition (1563), p. 1492. —ED. This Constantius was Stephen Gardiner, as constant indeed as a weather-cock: who thus named himself, writing against this good archbishop. Many profess God “ad ignem exclusive,” that is, in words and outward profession: but few stick to him “ad ignem inclusive,” that is, in deed, and in suffering for his sake, “Gaudete in Domino semper, et iterum gaudete et exultate.” These martyrs were sent up by the lord Riche, by master Tyrrel and others. These five martyrs were Drakes, Thomas and Richard Spurge, Cavel, and Ambrose. “Spiritus meus qui est in te,” etc. See Appendix. —ED. Bonner went away from W. Tyms, belike not able to make his part good. Syrach 13. How can corruption be referred to accidents, when, by all philosophy, generation and corruption belong only to the predicament of substance? A note for them which shrank away, having cure. In the pope’s service there is no edifying: what fables be in it, the Lord knoweth.

    Ft138 This date, June 6th, confirms and is confirmed by a letter of John Careless to II. Adlington, which will he found infra, p. 187. It appears on that page, that Careless expected Adlington and his companions to be condemned the following Friday, and we find, at p. 155, that they were actually condemned on Saturday, June 13th. The same letter, at p. 188, says: “Our sweet brethren, Thomas Haftand and John Oswald died at Lewes in Sussex, to the great rejoicing of the children of God that were in those parts. And I hear say, that they were dissolved from this earthly tabernacle at Lewes on Saturday last , and were condemned but the Wednesday before.” That Saturday would be June 6th, and so confirms the accuracy of Foxe’s text in this place. We may add, that Nicolas’s Tables prove June 6th to have fallen on a Saturday in 1556.

    The beginning of September following twenty-two confessors were marched up from Colchester to London, and were met at Stratford-lebow by companies of good men, who came to comfort and strengthen them, and attended them all the way to Fulham, where the crowd numbered above a thousand.

All the earlier impressions are very rare, and it was considered (about a century back) a privilege to have merely seen one of them. See a long and interesting disquisition upon the subject in “Gerdesii Scrinium Antiq. sive miscellanea Groningana Nova,” tom. 2 p. 451; and “Bibliotheca Eccles. Friburgensis,” volume 6 p. 748. —ED. Behold his earnestness, now he is turned to the truth. By these “measures” he meaneth a certain ceremony of the college, which was this: that in the ‘Confiteor’ time at even-song, the whole company of the choir (who were there, to the number of a hundred) standing up. and turning their faces first to the high altar, should then turn them to the president, and from the president to the high altar again: and so, after turning and returning three times together, the president should say, “Misereatur,” which done every man was to place himself again in his stall. “Propino tibi, juvenis erudite.” “Non agnosco nomen, domine.” “Oleum corum non demulcet, sed frangit caput meum.” [Psalm 141. S.] “He writ a poem, entitled, ‘Epicedium’ (for he was a man of florid learning) against one Morwin, who had made verses in praise of the bishop of Winchester, deceased.” See Strype, Memorials under Mary, chapter 46 —ED. “The father shall be divided against the son, the mother against,” etc.

    Luke 12. Foxe does not allude here to his. First Edition, as Strype has erroneously supposed, but to the Second Edition of the Acts and Monuments, published in 1570. The statements so offensive to Thackham were also repeated in the Third Edition, printed six years subsequent to the second, but they were suppressed in the edition of 1583, for the reasons above alleged by Foxe. Thack ham’s “reply in writing,” to which Foxe alludes, is extant in the Harleian MSS. (No. 425. art. 10;) it is entitled “An Answere to a Slaunder untruly reported by Mr. Foxe, in a certain boke intytuled the Seconde Volume of the Ecclesiasticall Hystorye, conteynynge the Acts and Monuments of Martyres; wyche was broughte unto hym (and as yt maye be supposed) by some uncharytable and malycyous slaanderer agaynst Thomas Thackham, mynister; whereby yt maye well appere unto the gentle reader, bothe how touche the wryter off that hystorye hathe bene abused and howe wrongfullye the sayed Thackham hathe bene slaundered. From Northampton the 30th off January, the yere of ouer salvation 15 — :” (probably 1570, the year when Foxe’s Second Edition was published). This answer of Thackham is followed by a “Reply to an indiscrete Answer made by Thomas Thackham, sometime of Reading, against the Story of Julius Palmer, martyr, 1571;” the latter MS, appears to have lost about one or two leaves, at the end. This dispute has been noticed by Strype (Memorials under Mary, chapter 46); of Thackham he says, his “credit went but little way, being a scandalous man, and one that shrunk back from religion in queen Mary’s days,” etc. “And those circumstances, concerning Palmer, which Thackham would so confidently prove to be false, were, upon examination of the woman and hostler” (that is, the landlord) “that lived at the Cardinal’s Hat, and others at Reading, attested and avowed to be true. And thus for the credit of Foxe’s history.” Strype, having more fully discussed the matter, thus concludes: “I have been too long upon this matter. But I have done it for the vindication of Mr.

    Foxe’s excellent history, and for the further clearing of the informations which he received and believed, so as to induce him to commit them into his book. Upon inquiries made at Reading, and examination of matters relating to Palmer’s business and Thackham’s book, it appeared, that he was defective of. truth, and Foxe’s account for the main true.” See also Perry’s Letter in vindication of Foxe: “Memorials,” volume 3 part 1 page 584. —ED. The following is the statement here made by Foxe in the Second and Third Editions of the Acts and Monuments. “After this he was brought before the mayor, and there, by the procurement of a false brother, one Thomas Thackham (which had then obtained the preferment of the school for him and his assigns), he had divers grievous and enormous crimes laid to his charge. For this Thackham (fearing lest Palmer, by the virtue of his former patent, would remove him from teaching the school), taking on him the office of an accuser, had suborned three false witnesses, to wit, Cox, Cately, and Downer; which men, under the name of brethren, had been conversant with Palmer, and robbed his study, as is aforesaid. These burdened him with no less than treason, sedition, surmised murder, and adultery.” — For the reasons above assigned, Foxe amended and corrected these statements respecting Thackham. —ED. Note the worshipful proofs of the quarreling papists. “Qui spiritum Christi non habet, hic non est ejus.” “The Holy Ghost shall teach you in that hour what you shall answer.”

    Luke 12. A marvel to the papists, that young men should have the gift of the Holy Ghost. “Quicunque invocaverit nomen Domini, salvus erit?” “Qui edit et bibit corpus Domini indigne<, reus exit judicii.”

Answer. — Hell is taken in Scripture two ways; either for the place where damned spirits and souls be tormented for ever out of this life. or else for God’s correction and anguish of the soul in this life, which sometimes is felt so sharp, that it is resembled to hell itself; as where we read, “The Lord bringeth to hell, and bringeth out again,” etc. Tob. 13. “The pains of hell have found me,” etc. Psalm 116.

But, it appears, there were two Grimwoods, one who sued a minister for relating the story from Foxe’s book, and the other to whom alone the narration referred. Strype says (Annals under Queen Elizabeth, cap. 21.), “But what if, after all this, the relation of Grimwood’s judgment was true? I have been assured so from a very careful inquirer (Mr. Roger Morris) after such matters; who told me that he had read it in a very authentic paper, carrying so much evidence with it, that he did not in the least misdoubt it: the judgment indeed not falling upon that Grimwood that sued the minister, but another of the same both christian and surname, as was well known afterwards.” — ED. Of Valerian read before. Note that bishop Tonstall, in queen Mary’s time, was no great bloody persecutor. For when master Russel, a preacher, was before him, and Dr. Himner his chancellor would have had him examined more particularly, the bishop staid him, saying, “Hitherto we have had a good report among our neighbors; I pray you bring not this man’s blood upon my head.” Note that some of these bishops afterward, through the goodness of Queen Elizabeth, were dispersed, and suffered to be kept in their friends’ houses.

Cum ergo hoc vidissem, in ecclesia Christi contra authoritatem Scripturarum hominis pendere imaginem, scidi illud,” etc.

    Et paulo post: “Et praecepi in ecclesia Christi istiusmodi vela, quae contra religionem nostrum veniunt, non appendi,” etc.

    Ft587 He was a Florentine of the name of Ricci, or, as he denominated himself according to the custom of the times, P. Crinitus. “Scripsit libros de Poetis Lat., qui una cum opere ejus ‘De honesta disciplina’ excudi solet. Basil. 1532. Paris, 1520.” See “Supplementum ad Vossium,” Hamb. 1709, p. 768.

    Ft589 “Petrus Crinitus de Honesta Disciplina, lib. 9. cap. 9. ex libris Augustalibus haec verba transcripsit: ‘Valens et Theodosius Augusti imperatores praefecto praetorio ad hunc modum scripserunt. Quum sit nobis cura diligens in rebus omnibus superni Numinis religionem tueri, signum Salvatoris Christi nemini quidem concedimus coloribus, lapide, aliave materia fingere, insculpere, aut pingere; sed quocunque reperitur loco tolli jubemus, gravissima poena eos mulctando qui contrarium decretis nostris et imperio quicquam tentavcrint.’” [See Justinian’s Cod. 1:8.] Ft590 This occurred in 726; the reflections of the Latin chroniclers upon the circumstance are given in “Goldasti Imperialia Decret. de Cultu Imag.”

    Ft591 A.D. 754; the arguments and Decrees of the council are included in what was intended for a refutation, “The Acts of the Second Nicene Council in 787;” but the express words, cited by Ridley as a decree, do not appear, though the substance doubtless may. See Labbe, tom. 7. col. 396, 513-529. As the existing accounts of the Nicene council are supposed to have been corrupted, the decrees of the council assembled by Constantine may also have similarly suffered. See “Dallaei de Imaginibus;” Lug. Bat. 1642, p. 419. — ED.

    Ft634 Foxe might well be anxious to anticipate any evil consequences to himself, when a Priest could utter his mind in manner following respecting his Queen: “Sed et digna incesto eodem patre atque fratre (Henry VIII. Edward VI.) incesta simul soror et filia, quae bodie etiam regnat Anglicana Jezebel, quae nec pervenire ad apicem istum putidissima bellua potuisset, nisi mira hypocrisi impretatem suam spirante ac viverite Maria catholica Regina occulere didicisset.”
