Sivu 220 - Middlesex, openly declare and say, ' the king, our sovereign lord, is not supreme head in earth of the Church of England.
Sivu 408 - ... cause such dreadful execution to be done upon a good number of the inhabitants of every town, village and hamlet, that have offended in this rebellion, as well by the hanging...
Sivu 338 - The singular want of honesty in this assurance to parliament is apparent. Henry professed to go by the evidence of his visitors. Their comperta included the greater monasteries with the less in wholesale condemnation. The preamble of the act, passed on the strength of the royal assurance, however, declares that in the larger monasteries " thanks be to God religion is right well kept and observed.'' The fact that the greater monasteries are not spared in these reports, makes it impossible to believe...
Sivu 199 - if it be your pleasure, as it is, that I shall play the fool after my customable manner when Forest shall suffer, I would wish that my stage stood near unto Forest, for I would endeavor myself so to content the people, that therewith I might also convert Forest, God so helping, or rather, altogether working.
Sivu 238 - My very good Lord, after my most hearty commendations, it shall please your Lordship to understand that the monks of the Charterhouse here at London, which were committed to Newgate for their traitorous behaviour long time continued against the King's Grace, be almost despatched by the hand of God...

Sivu 307 - Forasmuch as manifest sin, vicious, carnal and abominable living, is daily used and committed amongst the little and small abbeys, priories, and other religious houses of monks, canons, and nuns, where the congregation of such religious persons is under the number of twelve persons, whereby the governors of such religious houses and their convent, spoil, destroy, consume, and utterly waste...
Sivu 201 - It was enough. He was laid upon his iron bed, and slung off into the air, and the flame was kindled. In his mortal agony he clutched at the steps of the ladder, to sway himself out of the blaze ; and the pitiless chronicler, who records the scene, could see only in this last weakness an evidence of guilt. " So impatiently," says Hall, " he took his death as never any man that put his trust in God.
Sivu 166 - It is undoubted that they have intended and would confess some great matter, if they might be examined as they ought to be — that is, by pains ; " * or, in plain English, by torture on the rack. The Greenwich Observants had, it seems, some connection with these two friars. The warden had specially requested to have the punishment of them if any were required ; and father Peto, who had spoken so boldly about the...
