The Concordance
 
 A...................706
the poisoned book, which a nameless heretic hath named 11, 1/ 3
forsaken the faith have a hot fire of hell 11, 3/ 11
filthy talking, hath bygone a great while ago and 11, 4/ 7
after the manner of a corrupt cancer. And therefore 11, 4/ 37
the faith matched with a fellow stubborn and strong 11, 5/ 10
That man that is a heretic, after once or 11, 5/ 14
begin but of such a vain curious mind, whom 11, 6/ 7
out of doubt to a full belief of heresy 11, 6/ 11
the room to hide a book therein. But when 11, 6/ 15
against the Blessed Sacrament, a book of that sort 11, 7/ 1
But I beshrew such a shower as so serveth 11, 7/ 7
nothing therein but, for a memorial only, bare bread 11, 7/ 12
George Jay had made a book against the Sacrament 11, 7/ 24
it of late by a piece that he hath 11, 7/ 31
write so unlearnedly, and a mad man would almost 11, 9/ 10
also declared him for a fool, by reason whereof 11, 9/ 20
lost. Frith was, lo, a proper young man and 11, 9/ 23
proper young man and a toward, till he fell 11, 9/ 23
shall show you, for a sample, some of the 11, 11/ 28
diligence, prove him twice a fool. But in the 11, 12/ 10
me. For he hath a great pleasure oftentimes, now 11, 12/ 13
boldly come dance in a masque, whose dancing became 11, 12/ 34
them to set forth a foot. And Master Mummer 11, 12/ 36
not much to shift a false cast among, with 11, 13/ 2
false cast among, with a pair of false dice 11, 13/ 2
book, hath donned on a visor of dissimulation, dissimuling 11, 13/ 5
playeth us here, with a spiritual exposition of allegories 11, 18/ 8
first right understanding into a secondary sense of allegories 11, 18/ 12
would teach us such a spiritual sense to make 11, 19/ 9
verily that he were a very heretic. I find 11, 19/ 12
the tails, and setting a fire in them, and 11, 19/ 16
would I reckon for a heretic too. And in 11, 19/ 36
to those allegories, of a false wily purpose to 11, 20/ 6
that proveth Master Masquer a heretic. And, therefore, as 11, 20/ 8
meant not only such a spiritual eating as Master 11, 20/ 28
with, because it hath a hard allegory declared by 11, 21/ 13
from the heaven. If a man eat of this 11, 22/ 24
hearing, said, "This is a hard saying, and who 11, 22/ 37
one of you is a devil?" He said it 11, 23/ 13
some souls, though not a full faith, yet an 11, 24/ 16
yet an inclination and a disposition toward it, and 11, 24/ 16
to tell them was a marvelous high thing and 11, 25/ 2
marvelous high thing and a strange, used in the 11, 25/ 2
over the water without a vessel, and another that 11, 25/ 10
five loaves by such a miracle so multiplied, as 11, 25/ 17
miracle so multiplied, as a thing very convenient, he 11, 25/ 17
some part like, is a convenient thing for an 11, 25/ 24
for an entry and a beginning wherewith to draw 11, 25/ 25
the evening after into a ship, and Christ appearing 11, 26/ 10
and thoughts, which is a property belonging only to 11, 26/ 27
the morrow so cold a mind toward him as 11, 27/ 6
unperfect minds and, as a perfect physician against their 11, 27/ 11
their disease, devised them a good and perfect medicine 11, 27/ 12
in these few words a doctrine short and compendious 11, 28/ 11
his gross fleshliness into a certain manner of the 11, 29/ 6
and understand that as a true seal truly printed 11, 30/ 23
but as it is a seal -- that is 11, 30/ 26
Savior speak of such a meat that would not 11, 31/ 18
many men have such a pleasure in eating and 11, 31/ 33
purposely to give them a courage to the cup 11, 32/ 3
that gladly would endure a grief perpetually to have 11, 32/ 14
their best wealth but a displeasant pleasure, except men 11, 32/ 15
fault as to make a change of one fault 11, 32/ 28
his vice but make a change may soon hap 11, 33/ 6
he leaveth, and not a worse lightly than sloth 11, 33/ 7
earth, he gave him a necessity to labor, making 11, 33/ 13
therefore an evil and a perilous life live they 11, 33/ 16
must serve but for a refreshing of the weary 11, 33/ 26
should be but as a sauce. And sauce should 11, 33/ 32
wot well, serve for a faint and weak stomach 11, 33/ 33
likewise as it were, a fond feast that had 11, 33/ 36
so is it surely a very mad-ordered life that 11, 34/ 3
meat, setteth them about a spiritual work, bidding them 11, 34/ 32
work, and so great a work that no man 11, 34/ 35
in manner, what manner a miracle they would have 11, 35/ 21
from heaven, but from a far lower place of 11, 35/ 31
Lord, always, not for a season, as our fathers 11, 36/ 13
they so much boasted a while), these heretics now 11, 37/ 6
that like as if a man would teach a 11, 37/ 17
a man would teach a child to read, he 11, 37/ 17
our Savior therefore, as a good and a wise 11, 37/ 27
as a good and a wise master of his 11, 37/ 27
his word, it was a means to make them 11, 38/ 28
not him that had a bare faith alone (which 11, 38/ 35
Saint James saith, but a dead faith), but him 11, 38/ 36
as the Apostle saith, a man is justified by 11, 39/ 9
alone, but faith with a working love. Nor it 11, 39/ 19
it may not be a bare believing of Christ 11, 39/ 19
but it must be a believing in Christ, that 11, 39/ 20
dead standing belief, but a belief lively, quick, and 11, 39/ 21
unchristian man, or to a false christened Arian, to 11, 41/ 12
natures. For like as a man may say of 11, 42/ 21
into me by being a member of mine and 11, 44/ 6
Father, as we say a man is obedient unto 11, 44/ 26
our incorporation together and a memorial of that death 11, 44/ 36
to life give them a sample and make them 11, 45/ 7
but because it is a very truth indeed, and 11, 45/ 34
see. Therefore, so plain a truth, and so necessary 11, 46/ 2
from him suddenly. For a day before they had 11, 46/ 33
here they called him a carpenter's son, and therein 11, 47/ 19
from the making him a king. Then said our 11, 47/ 21
strain your jaws with a bit and a bridle 11, 47/ 33
with a bit and a bridle and draw you 11, 47/ 34
whom I shall for a sample give you, ere 11, 50/ 17
death, and verily for a sacrifice offer up to 11, 51/ 8
Sacrament is not only a figure of the flesh 11, 52/ 10
I shall give is a figure of my flesh 11, 52/ 13
no Latin man but a Greek, because Master Masquer 11, 52/ 36
Body of Christ, were a thing but made and 11, 52/ 39
Sacrament, is not only a certain figure of the 11, 53/ 18
was turned is called a rod still, while it 11, 53/ 30
was no rod but a serpent. For there is 11, 53/ 30
calleth the serpent there a rod, so calleth it 11, 53/ 33
Sacrament, is not only a figure of the flesh 11, 54/ 10
he saith it is a figure and yet, for 11, 54/ 13
call the Blessed Sacrament a figure, there would these 11, 54/ 20
Theophylactus saith it is a figure, as it is 11, 54/ 23
that it is called a figure, they prove nothing 11, 54/ 30
that say it is a figure say it is 11, 54/ 31
it is not only a figure but also the 11, 54/ 32
to them should be a memorial of his giving 11, 55/ 34
them he maketh after a very plain and express 11, 56/ 3
them, he spoke but a little, and as it 11, 56/ 5
it were but for a declaration of the other 11, 56/ 5
in his exposition of a foolish wiliness winked and 11, 57/ 11
am I content that a better than we both 11, 57/ 16
wise man will believe a little better than either 11, 57/ 19
that they had conceived a false opinion that our 11, 58/ 10
not eat it, as a thing foul and loathsome 11, 58/ 16
conceive and bring forth a child, asked this question 11, 58/ 22
perpetual virginity, and thereof a promise had passed and 11, 58/ 28
promise had passed and a vow was made, and 11, 58/ 29
afterward, using therein such a manner of speaking, as 11, 59/ 4
manner of speaking, as a maid might say by 11, 59/ 5
of perpetual virginity was a promise and a vow 11, 59/ 12
was a promise and a vow to God, it 11, 59/ 13
should conceive and bear a child, she had had 11, 59/ 15
liberty to lie with a man, then had that 11, 59/ 16
had that revelation been a commandment unto her to 11, 59/ 17
was she should have a child, a bare purpose 11, 59/ 35
should have a child, a bare purpose of virginity 11, 59/ 35
purpose of virginity and a vow of virginity were 11, 59/ 35
the first thought make a cross on their breast 11, 60/ 10
vow, yet is it a way well toward it 11, 60/ 11
the delight in such a naughty mind God would 11, 60/ 15
devil to illude such a vowess, and transfigure himself 11, 60/ 16
that she shall have a child; though he therewith 11, 60/ 19
understand this message for a dispensation of her vow 11, 60/ 24
her vow, and for a commandment to break it 11, 60/ 25
question, and go get a child, and make the 11, 60/ 27
and make the devil a prophet. But this blessed 11, 60/ 27
also whether it were a good spirit or an 11, 60/ 34
and spoken somewhat like a wooer, she was somewhat 11, 61/ 1
him to be not a man but an angel 11, 61/ 4
an evil angel but a good, and specially sent 11, 61/ 5
no worldly wooing but a heavenly message, she was 11, 61/ 6
message, she was not a little joyful in her 11, 61/ 7
her do, namely having a husband already. Nor never 11, 61/ 10
tell thee, but if a man be born again 11, 62/ 5
and said, "How may a man be born again 11, 62/ 7
that he thought upon a bodily birth, whereas our 11, 62/ 9
our Savior meant of a spiritual birth, by faith 11, 62/ 10
he meant not that a man should be bodily 11, 62/ 12
mother, but meant of a spiritual regeneration in soul 11, 62/ 13
which said, "How may a man be born again 11, 62/ 28
no bodily birth but a spiritual, and bade him 11, 62/ 36
it, and gave him a signification of his death 11, 63/ 9
how. For it is a Jew's word that same 11, 64/ 4
word that same, and a cause of extreme punishment 11, 64/ 4
nature and substance, yet a man is justified by 11, 64/ 12
by him; so though a man know not the 11, 64/ 14
with leprosy was in a moment restored to his 11, 65/ 4
things there appeareth anon a great arrogance in your 11, 65/ 20
of God, it is a madness to put any 11, 65/ 33
Moses was turned into a quick serpent. The Sixteenth 11, 66/ 11
as were meetly for a man to ask. But 11, 67/ 2
Jews did how such a wonderful work can be 11, 68/ 3
of Aaron's rod into a serpent, and that into 11, 68/ 9
and that into such a serpent as devoured up 11, 68/ 10
in the manner of a cross in the desert 11, 68/ 16
that they thought such a manner thing that they 11, 69/ 7
yet will he, with a few fond heretics, take 11, 69/ 31
few fond heretics, take a foolish froward way and 11, 69/ 31
no sophisms but, with a very plain open tale 11, 70/ 12
parables, but even for a very plain truth, that 11, 70/ 20
to eat and with a true faith to eat 11, 70/ 23
you. But whoso with a true well working faith 11, 70/ 25
of itself, and such a life as to them 11, 70/ 33
descended from heaven that a man should eat thereof 11, 71/ 19
not eternal life but a short remedy against hunger 11, 71/ 21
Cyril: "Like as if a man unto molten wax 11, 72/ 14
the other, so if a man receive the Flesh 11, 72/ 15
readers, see how verily a man eateth in the 11, 72/ 19
Christ, but is also a figure. And that is 11, 72/ 38
for his purpose in a certain communication, willing to 11, 73/ 23
effectual receiving, by which a man not only receiveth 11, 73/ 30
that he is made a lively member of his 11, 73/ 34
by evil receiving of a good thing, gave the 11, 74/ 12
thing, gave the devil a place to enter into 11, 74/ 12
to call it only a figure or a memorial 11, 74/ 27
only a figure or a memorial (besides his other 11, 74/ 28
spiritually with him as a lively member of his 11, 75/ 12
many men which with a feigned heart eat that 11, 75/ 28
But there is undoubtedly a certain manner of eating 11, 75/ 30
and drinketh it after a certain manner, which manner 11, 75/ 34
that eat it in a certain manner, by which 11, 76/ 5
receive him otherwise, with a feigned heart and in 11, 76/ 8
saith Saint Augustine that a man to eat the 11, 76/ 12
And verily to be a quick lively member of 11, 76/ 32
good life, but waxeth a more weak member and 11, 76/ 34
more weak member and a more lame, more astonied 11, 76/ 34
again to be made a member of that body 11, 77/ 3
Saint Augustine saith, if a man after the receiving 11, 77/ 3
works, then is it a good sign and token 11, 77/ 6
temporal life, was but a figure of this bread 11, 78/ 34
or the shadow of a thing is far from 11, 79/ 1
as because it was a figure of this bread 11, 79/ 4
because it was but a figure and not the 11, 79/ 5
not forever but for a while. But this bread 11, 79/ 7
to eat in such a manner that it shall 11, 79/ 12
descended from heaven?" And a great piece of their 11, 80/ 13
said also, "This is a hard word, and who 11, 80/ 23
may hear him?" And a great part of their 11, 80/ 24
take him but for a man, far the greater 11, 81/ 17
they mistook him by a false imagination of their 11, 81/ 20
he gave them again a signification that himself, the 11, 81/ 25
his Ascension should be a sufficient cause to make 11, 81/ 30
Blessed Sacrament yet show a great token that they 11, 81/ 32
But now, forasmuch as a great part of these 11, 82/ 2
doth but puff up a man in pride. But 11, 83/ 3
words, declaring them by a long process to the 11, 83/ 7
Christ calleth his flesh a giver of life, that 11, 83/ 29
speak, not only of a spiritual eating of his 11, 84/ 5
that God foreseeth such a thing which he should 11, 85/ 4
as by way of a special privilege, so that 11, 85/ 18
these words in such a presumptuous way of election 11, 86/ 13
were drawn into such a feeling faith that could 11, 86/ 15
yet is there one a devil?" This he spoke 11, 88/ 33
saying to his Father a little after his Maundy 11, 89/ 34
somewhat like as if a man, because he maketh 11, 90/ 16
But likewise as though a man have an incurable 11, 90/ 33
present time he gave a secret warning that he 11, 92/ 5
and Saint Cyril both) a marvelous goodly warning for 11, 92/ 15
and not only withdraweth a feeble mind from thinking 11, 92/ 22
pulled him away. For a man is a free 11, 92/ 31
For a man is a free creature, and may 11, 92/ 31
telling them all in a generalty that one of 11, 93/ 1
one of you is a devil." This thing he 11, 93/ 10
had obtained so great a gift, he that had 11, 93/ 27
things were with from a passage and a way 11, 93/ 33
from a passage and a way to his punishment 11, 93/ 33
of the twelve was a devil, to the intent 11, 93/ 36
naught that was once a holy apostle, there shall 11, 94/ 4
couple some fear, as a bridle and a bit 11, 94/ 8
as a bridle and a bit to refrain and 11, 94/ 8
in falsehood, and wax a devil, as Christ called 11, 94/ 10
saith Saint Cyril) is a devil, too. For likewise 11, 94/ 12
and they be not a few. And yet that 11, 95/ 14
it wrong. For though a man may diversely expound 11, 96/ 15
one true manner, of a false purpose to exclude 11, 96/ 18
to note in them a little lack of wit 11, 97/ 15
of folly. For though a man may well and 11, 97/ 16
good reason call faith a meat of man's soul 11, 97/ 17
you, great pity that a man should mock Master 11, 98/ 33
him in so great a matter write so wisely 11, 98/ 34
had liefer confess himself a heretic, then be proved 11, 99/ 8
heretic, then be proved a fool. And that appeareth 11, 99/ 9
and cover, so that a man must pull off 11, 99/ 11
in sight that lie a begging a Fridays about 11, 99/ 15
that lie a begging a Fridays about Saint Savior 11, 99/ 15
yet like as if a right great man would 11, 99/ 28
man would wantonly walk a mumming, and disguise himself 11, 99/ 28
his personage, and with a fond visor hide and 11, 99/ 30
men ween he were a wild goose, to be 11, 100/ 2
so for defense of a single folly, prove himself 11, 100/ 10
folly, prove himself thrice a fool, first in writing 11, 100/ 11
the same. For if a man drink a pint 11, 101/ 29
if a man drink a pint of ale, though 11, 101/ 29
the same ale drink a quart more, some man 11, 101/ 32
would say he were a dry soul and were 11, 101/ 33
nor thirst," which signifieth a taking away of desire 11, 102/ 5
things, yet remaineth there a desire and longing for 11, 102/ 8
well eat here with a well-working faith, he would 11, 103/ 2
while, and yet have a hope that they shall 11, 103/ 16
be with Christ," such a man, lo, as he 11, 103/ 22
Christ, and not that a man shall by his 11, 103/ 39
saturity of heaven into a saturity in this life 11, 104/ 4
promised Saint Mary Magdalene a perpetual honor in earth 11, 104/ 10
if Master Masquer were a good Catholic man, I 11, 104/ 28
besides that false heresy, a very false wily folly 11, 105/ 15
that it were but a scoffing question. And yet 11, 106/ 4
now another manner thing, a thing of that weight 11, 106/ 8
him whether he, being a priest, desired none other 11, 106/ 11
belief, he hath, being a priest, broken his promise 11, 106/ 13
gone after then once a wooing. And if Master 11, 106/ 14
but God, when being a priest he broke his 11, 106/ 17
to God and wedded a widow, and by such 11, 106/ 18
wife, but made her a priest's harlot. If Master 11, 106/ 19
he be, he is a disciple of Luther and 11, 106/ 21
and wedded, the one a single woman, the other 11, 106/ 28
single woman, the other a nun, and made them 11, 106/ 28
to blasphemy and call a frere's harlot God, or 11, 106/ 36
preached, especially Paul being a year and a half 11, 107/ 16
being a year and a half among the Corinthians 11, 107/ 16
it well appeareth) upon a certain occasion to put 11, 108/ 29
Master Masquer maketh us a pretty short creed now 11, 109/ 18
no deadly sin for a freer to wed a 11, 109/ 31
a freer to wed a nun. And their argument 11, 109/ 31
Master Masquer had gone a little further in the 11, 111/ 20
to teach English men a new faith as Saint 11, 112/ 32
for our part such a multitude of miracles that 11, 112/ 36
is no mastery for a man to be short 11, 113/ 26
of his exposition of a spiritual eating by faith 11, 113/ 30
specially beginneth to play a mummer's cast with his 11, 114/ 17
where was there ever a more blasphemous beastly word 11, 115/ 16
boldness it giveth when a man may walk about 11, 115/ 26
may walk about in a visor unknown. Master Masquer 11, 115/ 27
and this sacrifice is a copy or example of 11, 116/ 13
or rather we make a remembrance of that same 11, 116/ 25
to prove Master Masquer a very fond, blasphemous mocker 11, 116/ 26
showeth that it is a sacrifice and an oblation 11, 116/ 30
follow the example, as a copy is written after 11, 117/ 2
copy is written after a book, and do represent 11, 117/ 2
body offered up daily a sweet sacrifice for our 11, 117/ 11
sacrifices were offered for a shadow of the thing 11, 117/ 20
in the Mass is a sacrifice and an oblation 11, 117/ 30
everywhere believed to be a sacrifice that is offered 11, 118/ 5
see, good readers, what a compendious writer Master Masquer 11, 118/ 27
and not only of a spiritual eating by belief 11, 118/ 35
honest man, or else a false hazarder and play 11, 119/ 10
both too narrow by a great deal to cover 11, 120/ 23
he that hath once a feeling faith can never 11, 120/ 33
make some bumbling about a color for the matter 11, 121/ 1
for the matter, with a long process of historical 11, 121/ 1
the matter shortly in a few words, both for 11, 121/ 9
words might stand for a short text, which he 11, 121/ 11
come to him. As a man may believe well 11, 121/ 31
at all. As where a man believeth truly every 11, 121/ 36
called fides informis, and a dead faith. Not dead 11, 122/ 5
so beguiled by such a fond, false juggler. For 11, 122/ 12
he is even but a very bungler. For when 11, 122/ 13
that he saith that a man hath charity ever 11, 122/ 22
But now is this a very false devilish doctrine 11, 122/ 26
no full faith. For a man may believe this 11, 122/ 27
and yet leave many a thing unbelieved which we 11, 122/ 27
speaketh of no perseverance, a man may well see 11, 122/ 35
both that, faith standing, a man may well fall 11, 122/ 36
mormal is more than a handful broad, this plaster 11, 123/ 12
not the breadth of a penny. For I dare 11, 123/ 13
my sake."" This is a very false, naughty declaration 11, 123/ 26
said that by faith a man might eat the 11, 124/ 17
if Master Masquer were a good Catholic man, I 11, 124/ 19
For it might have a meaning good enough, besides 11, 124/ 21
of his flesh by a bare belief of his 11, 124/ 25
of charity were but a follower and a perpetual 11, 124/ 29
but a follower and a perpetual handmaid, where there 11, 124/ 29
Blessed Sacrament, but only a spiritual eating by believing 11, 125/ 15
And yet it is a world also to see 11, 125/ 19
plain that, as great a dissembler as he is 11, 126/ 5
he meaneth thereby. For a man dissembleth the thing 11, 126/ 8
be acknown thereof, as a man dissembleth his hatred 11, 126/ 10
so we say that a man dissembleth a thing 11, 126/ 12
that a man dissembleth a thing when he seeth 11, 126/ 12
thing than they feign a belief, making as though 11, 126/ 20
he speaketh but like a fool. For by that 11, 126/ 25
will not here hold a long dispicion with Master 11, 126/ 33
or to burn up a heretic, but if the 11, 127/ 7
saith, "Ego enim accepi a domino quod et tradidi 11, 127/ 18
teach it forth for a doctrine, reason it is 11, 128/ 17
sects either have but a vain faith, or else 11, 128/ 18
by which as by a taste of a draught 11, 128/ 28
by a taste of a draught or twain, ye 11, 128/ 28
can convey him with a few words) into a 11, 129/ 10
a few words) into a singing loaf, or else 11, 129/ 10
into it. And after a like Thomistical mystery, the 11, 129/ 12
this man here in a foolish, jesting, and much 11, 129/ 27
in conclusion as for a clear confutation of me 11, 129/ 30
slyly convey himself into a singing loaf, and that 11, 130/ 5
exercised, then hath he a very poor remembrance. And 11, 130/ 33
or not he hath a very bare, barren wit 11, 130/ 34
Jews that asked him a token have told them 11, 131/ 4
mistook his kingdom for a worldly kingdom, did he 11, 131/ 10
that the man is a wise man and well 11, 132/ 35
toward which he maketh a blind induction before. And 11, 133/ 3
declared, he gave them a strong trip, and made 11, 133/ 9
juggling, lo, and as a juggler layeth forth his 11, 133/ 21
that, while he playeth a false cast and conveyeth 11, 133/ 26
his also, "But if a man be born again 11, 134/ 28
church, so fall in a concord and agreement together 11, 134/ 37
of age, it were a little more strong if 11, 135/ 11
Masquer's argument is of a feeble force. Of which 11, 135/ 18
general words, "But if a man be born of 11, 135/ 29
words said, "This is a hard word; who may 11, 136/ 4
shall answer anon in a more convenient place. "Which 11, 136/ 10
disciples said, "This is a hard saying; who may 11, 136/ 11
Frere Huessgen too, besides a lewd sort of wretched 11, 136/ 19
to heaven, make them a plain proof that they 11, 137/ 30
and undiminished, make them a plain proof that they 11, 137/ 32
Master Masquer, and, with a wise exposition of his 11, 138/ 10
to put that for a difference, as a cause 11, 138/ 36
for a difference, as a cause after the Ascension 11, 138/ 36
heaven, it should be a thing that should of 11, 139/ 12
he was here, as a thing that would be 11, 139/ 14
that would be then a much more loathsome meat 11, 139/ 14
so mean, he hath a mad meaning. And if 11, 139/ 36
so, then hath he a mad manner of speaking 11, 139/ 37
therefore is Master Masquer a fool to say that 11, 140/ 5
Heliseus his mantle as a very great inheritance. And 11, 140/ 15
And in very deed, a great inheritance it was 11, 140/ 16
gold. And Heliseus was a double Hely, and there 11, 140/ 18
you think he was a just and a blessed 11, 140/ 19
was a just and a blessed man and you 11, 140/ 20
if I show you a certain other thing that 11, 140/ 21
he would thereby make a repugnance between the being 11, 140/ 38
Masquer, you see well, a little more clearer than 11, 141/ 10
Masquer, to show you a further declaration of his 11, 141/ 15
spoke them so hard a parable but where he 11, 141/ 26
all his sermon." Many a fond process have I 11, 142/ 27
never read I neither a more foolish nor a 11, 142/ 28
a more foolish nor a more false than this 11, 142/ 28
exposition Master Masquer hath a shameful fall, except any 11, 143/ 2
defendeth, that is even a very great pleasure to 11, 143/ 6
sacrament of baptism is a principal point of our 11, 143/ 20
but that it is a principal article of the 11, 143/ 30
men perceive him for a double fool, when it 11, 144/ 13
once, but he must a God's name bring in 11, 144/ 15
in that it is a world to see how 11, 144/ 17
gobbets, as they conceived a false opinion that he 11, 145/ 8
meant. This is therefore a plain proof by Master 11, 145/ 30
Master Masquer say nay a hundred times. For of 11, 146/ 8
as they had conceived a fond opinion thereof, out 11, 146/ 24
his ship himself against a rock. For he saith 11, 147/ 2
but the part of a foolish railer and a 11, 148/ 6
a foolish railer and a jester and doth but 11, 148/ 6
taken for folk of a false faith, he dissembleth 11, 148/ 8
in an allegory and a spiritual sense, because his 11, 149/ 10
him to it with a fescue, that he shall 11, 149/ 17
that he taketh even a pleasure to play with 11, 149/ 19
Lord said he was a very vine, nor when 11, 150/ 14
not that he was a material vine indeed, nor 11, 150/ 16
material vine indeed, nor a material door neither. But 11, 150/ 16
almost all in such a wonder thereof that they 11, 150/ 20
meant it not in a parable nor an allegory 11, 150/ 31
rehearsing, you shall see a show of his sharp 11, 151/ 6
thus he beginneth with a great gravity, giving all 11, 151/ 8
here hast thou not a taste but a great 11, 151/ 10
not a taste but a great ton full of 11, 151/ 10
readers, now have you a great high tragical warning 11, 151/ 14
tragical warning, with not a little taste but a 11, 151/ 15
a little taste but a great ton full at 11, 151/ 15
will shall stand for a plain proof that I 11, 151/ 18
one place be such a heinous handling as maketh 11, 151/ 24
as maketh it such a pernicious, pestilent, not only 11, 151/ 24
the matter. For such a manner, mistaking of a 11, 151/ 35
a manner, mistaking of a word is not the 11, 151/ 35
false, perverting poison into a little taste of wholesome 11, 152/ 5
This poet may make a man to signify an 11, 152/ 16
other times call himself a vine or a door 11, 152/ 21
himself a vine or a door marveled anything thereat 11, 152/ 21
the calling of himself a vine, nor at the 11, 153/ 1
the calling of himself a door, none of his 11, 153/ 1
so sore to say a ton full, but at 11, 153/ 19
at the least wise, a little pretty taste of 11, 153/ 20
pretty falsehood, with which a little he prettily believeth 11, 153/ 21
and his truth both a little better tried, even 11, 153/ 23
here thou hast not a taste but a ton 11, 154/ 11
not a taste but a ton full of More's 11, 154/ 12
may this poet make a man to signify an 11, 154/ 20
This proveth not him a poet that can make 11, 154/ 25
poet that can make a man signify an ass 11, 154/ 25
him rather instead of a poet, and instead of 11, 154/ 26
poet, and instead of a man, a very stark 11, 154/ 27
instead of a man, a very stark ass indeed 11, 154/ 27
good reader, not without a good cause and a 11, 154/ 29
a good cause and a great, I did rather 11, 154/ 29
himself that he was a door, there grew dissension 11, 155/ 2
of his calling himself a door, for he expounded 11, 155/ 10
that he called himself a door, but only by 11, 155/ 12
therefore of calling himself a door they marveled not 11, 155/ 13
they perceived it for a parable. But they disputed 11, 155/ 14
that word, "I am a door," as that they 11, 155/ 23
one place called himself a door, by way of 11, 155/ 28
door, by way of a parable, and in the 11, 155/ 28
word they perceived for a parable, and therefore none 11, 155/ 31
meant that he was a very door indeed, but 11, 156/ 2
meant himself to be a very door indeed. But 11, 156/ 5
to show himself once a fool by his first 11, 157/ 13
to show himself twice a fool, yea, thrice a 11, 157/ 14
a fool, yea, thrice a fool, by the second 11, 157/ 15
second. And first, for a way to come thereto 11, 157/ 16
therein he doth me a very great lordly pleasure 11, 157/ 22
For it is even a pleasure for a lord 11, 157/ 23
even a pleasure for a lord and for a 11, 157/ 23
a lord and for a king, too, to see 11, 157/ 23
I say, done me a very special pleasure to 11, 158/ 7
all, but even for a garnish of his induction 11, 158/ 9
of his induction, with a show of his cunning 11, 158/ 10
yes, I gave him a rule and a certain 11, 158/ 32
him a rule and a certain samples of the 11, 158/ 32
English as congrue as a man might that had 11, 159/ 6
I were to answer a good, plain man of 11, 159/ 15
each of these not a double question, as I 11, 159/ 29
I told you, but a quadruple question at once 11, 159/ 30
wilily to beguile such a simple soul as I 11, 159/ 33
him, if he were a good, plain soul, and 11, 160/ 8
soul, and not such a subtle sophistry that longeth 11, 160/ 9
the door but by a parable, and therefore marveled 11, 160/ 18
that it was but a parable. For they wist 11, 160/ 24
door was spoken by a parable, for Christ plainly 11, 160/ 25
Masquer hath given himself a fall in the subtle 11, 161/ 16
which he maketh for a way to the second 11, 161/ 39
tell me this tale a little more plainly that 11, 163/ 1
to take me as a man might send a 11, 163/ 21
a man might send a child about with salt 11, 163/ 22
bid him go catch a bird by laying a 11, 163/ 23
a bird by laying a little salt on her 11, 163/ 23
and it had tarried a little. The Sixth Chapter 11, 163/ 25
well it was not a parable, but that he 11, 164/ 17
at the thing as a thing plainly spoken and 11, 164/ 22
plainly spoken and not a parable, but a plain 11, 164/ 23
not a parable, but a plain tale that men 11, 164/ 23
trap? This man is a wily shrew in argument 11, 164/ 39
Passion by way of a parable or an allegory 11, 166/ 12
stood upon so deep a miracle as our papists 11, 166/ 30
and of so strange a matter than they were 11, 166/ 36
Christ spoke it in a parable (as I say 11, 167/ 18
but by way of a parable. But against Master 11, 167/ 22
but by way of a parable. And this may 11, 167/ 34
how can he be a vine, nor how can 11, 167/ 36
how can he be a door, as many said 11, 167/ 36
prove this point but a parable by none other 11, 168/ 10
stood upon so deep a miracle as our papists 11, 168/ 20
and of so strange a matter than they were 11, 168/ 26
Master Masquer given us a major of an argument 11, 168/ 31
of an argument, and a minor, too. His major 11, 168/ 32
us to believe as a necessary point of our 11, 169/ 9
meat," by way of a parable, as Master Masquer 11, 170/ 8
stood indeed upon such a great miracle as the 11, 170/ 14
which he putteth for a necessary part of our 11, 170/ 16
ever any man such a mad argument as Master 11, 171/ 13
which was as strange a matter as was all 11, 172/ 6
is the part of a disciple, whatsoever his master 11, 172/ 19
further be informed, abide a convenient time." For they 11, 172/ 23
and asked, "How may a man be born again 11, 172/ 30
he is old? May a man enter again into 11, 172/ 31
I shall rehearse you a few lines further of 11, 173/ 26
our head and what a love he hath showed 11, 174/ 17
the soul and with a certain marvelous might and 11, 174/ 34
but goeth forth with a longer process, declaring the 11, 175/ 6
maketh me therein such a feeble babe that I 11, 177/ 3
him at Clerkenwell at a wrestling, he would have 11, 177/ 7
standeth upon this argument, a posse ad esse, that 11, 177/ 19
that hath wit perceiveth. A like argument: God may 11, 177/ 23
he maketh us first a loud lie for his 11, 178/ 1
taunt as it becometh a camel or a bear 11, 178/ 4
becometh a camel or a bear to dance, I 11, 178/ 4
not with him argue a posse ad esse and 11, 178/ 5
prove that there were a God, or else grant 11, 179/ 34
I have proved him a very fool), but he 11, 180/ 2
and face it out a this fashion with express 11, 181/ 13
my second argument was a posse ad esse, it 11, 182/ 17
of his be not a posse ad esse indeed 11, 182/ 19
saints" books, and that a thousand year before that 11, 184/ 12
the true faith at a long leisure over late 11, 185/ 1
see, good readers, what a goodly piece Master Masquer 11, 185/ 9
further against me with a special goodly piece wherein 11, 185/ 14
and fight against itself a thousand times; yea, if 11, 185/ 25
wrought and brought into a full and whole Catholic 11, 186/ 11
about to make me a cardinal. But now, good 11, 186/ 21
reverence their images than a horse of wax, nor 11, 186/ 28
then would there wax a merry world, the very 11, 187/ 1
they shake off as a thing not necessary. Satisfaction 11, 187/ 4
there that they dread a little, and, therefore, for 11, 187/ 12
to call it but a problem among unlearned folk 11, 187/ 26
hell alone be but a servile dread, yet are 11, 187/ 33
heavy mind or of a troublous dream? If a 11, 188/ 2
a troublous dream? If a man believe Christ's word 11, 188/ 3
whole God, but half a God by their own 11, 188/ 24
since his manhood is a creature, it cannot have 11, 188/ 34
for God to make a creature equal unto himself 11, 189/ 10
good Christian readers, heard a very special piece, wherein 11, 189/ 12
that Frith was but a fool so to straight 11, 189/ 21
man or woman in a town to maintain that 11, 189/ 26
so solemnly set up a high. First he maketh 11, 190/ 8
But Christ's manhood is a creature. Ergo it cannot 11, 190/ 12
the Godhead. Here is a wise argument. God hath 11, 190/ 14
yet maketh he many a thousand possessors of joy 11, 190/ 20
all places is such a kind of glory so 11, 190/ 22
manhood of Christ is a creature and not God 11, 191/ 33
Masquer tell us herein a very mad tale. I 11, 192/ 10
would, he could) create a new spirit that should 11, 192/ 25
in every part of a man, and yet should 11, 192/ 29
that God Almighty had a match already, that is 11, 193/ 2
But yet is it a world to consider how 11, 193/ 10
to God to make a creature equal to himself 11, 193/ 29
here have we had a written dream of his 11, 193/ 33
had dreamed it in a fit of a fever 11, 193/ 35
in a fit of a fever, I would I 11, 193/ 35
More would make God a liar, which is impossible 11, 194/ 6
Necesse." Saying wheresoever is a testament, there must the 11, 194/ 9
this gear is but a by-matter, risen upon a 11, 194/ 37
a by-matter, risen upon a certain place of Saint 11, 194/ 37
with Master Masquer in a thing out of our 11, 195/ 3
when he hath said a great while that it 11, 195/ 6
here, to show himself a great schools man in 11, 195/ 18
may ye see what a fervent faith this old 11, 195/ 36
you bring as false a shrew as yourself to 11, 196/ 4
must ye make us a miracle to confirm your 11, 196/ 5
Master Masquer cometh of a high wit, I warrant 11, 196/ 17
head. And I have a testimonial also of many 11, 196/ 29
and saints, made afore a good notary, the good 11, 196/ 30
his seal of many a hundred miracles, both testified 11, 196/ 31
of Christ, and made a dead member of the 11, 197/ 14
very surely know as a thing taught me by 11, 197/ 15
upon his aforesaid such a proper handled mock as 11, 197/ 23
have taken too great a burden upon your weak 11, 197/ 29
almighty power? May not a poor, unlearned man be 11, 198/ 5
have taken too great a burden upon my weak 11, 198/ 7
in creeping out unto a dole, halted half so 11, 198/ 17
turn his sling into a cock-stele and his stone 11, 198/ 27
and his stone into a feather, for any harm 11, 198/ 27
nor sling, but with a feather they may do 11, 198/ 30
be so mad. But a heavy thing it is 11, 198/ 32
hath sent your church a meet cover for such 11, 199/ 2
meet cover for such a cup, even such a 11, 199/ 2
a cup, even such a defender as you take 11, 199/ 3
God send us both a little more of his 11, 199/ 10
of nothing, and that a virgin should bring forth 11, 200/ 15
virgin should bring forth a child. But yet when 11, 200/ 16
Chapter. Is not this a wise invented scoff that 11, 200/ 30
and Christ's birth of a virgin (which seem also 11, 201/ 32
were, as he saith, a giving away of his 11, 202/ 4
have it judged by a general council, it hath 11, 202/ 23
were indeed (which is a thing impossible and cannot 11, 203/ 17
matter alone, is that a fleeing from the scripture 11, 204/ 24
scripture? If that be a fleeing from the scripture 11, 204/ 25
nothing proveth maketh many a stark lie, and that 11, 205/ 32
representing the body were a bodily substance. But I 11, 206/ 31
eye present and beholding a whole great country at 11, 207/ 21
country at once with a thousand such other marvels 11, 207/ 21
no man useth upon a similitude to conclude a 11, 207/ 31
a similitude to conclude a necessary consequence in the 11, 207/ 31
which pieces each hath a several place. And as 11, 207/ 40
in the ears of a whole hundred persons, each 11, 208/ 3
each of them occupying a several place, and that 11, 208/ 3
several place, and that a good distance asunder. Of 11, 208/ 4
we shall also perceive a better cause of those 11, 208/ 12
whatsoever Master Masquer babble, a truth without question necessary 11, 208/ 27
in the glass for a sample and a similitude 11, 208/ 36
for a sample and a similitude, then he showeth 11, 208/ 36
one substance, being but a creature, might be in 11, 209/ 26
that is learned seeth a sample that satisfieth him 11, 209/ 27
yet is every member a several place. And so 11, 209/ 30
hath for his capacity a more meetly similitude, and 11, 209/ 34
every man, which is a very substance, and peradventure 11, 210/ 12
so strange and hard a thing as these heretics 11, 210/ 17
made nothing so great a matter of that point 11, 210/ 19
of Moses' rod into a serpent, and divers other 11, 211/ 10
out of so necessary a point of our faith 11, 212/ 12
unwritten verity he numbereth a little before among his 11, 212/ 25
in the rehearsing of a communication had between myself 11, 213/ 4
holy Saint Jerome himself, a man far otherwise seen 11, 213/ 30
is proved to be a written verity. And this 11, 214/ 1
for I know not a man?" do reason and 11, 214/ 6
plainly that she was a perpetual virgin. For if 11, 214/ 9
if it had been a very precise, plain, evident 11, 214/ 10
here himself that if a man look narrowly, then 11, 214/ 16
Master Masquer saith that a man cannot spy that 11, 214/ 18
I proved it sufficiently a written verity unto good 11, 214/ 24
rested it unproved still a written verity unto such 11, 214/ 25
our Lady to be a verity written in scripture 11, 215/ 8
for never so clear a written verity yet since 11, 215/ 11
but that she was a perpetual virgin except she 11, 215/ 20
good Christian folk for a full proof that she 11, 215/ 23
proof that she was a perpetual virgin. But yet 11, 215/ 23
out of so necessary a point of our faith 11, 216/ 9
therefore, mine oversight for a very truth, I never 11, 216/ 26
afterward, it happed on a day I said in 11, 216/ 28
day I said in a certain company that I 11, 216/ 28
made answer that such a chance happeth sometimes ere 11, 216/ 32
chance happeth sometimes ere a man be ware in 11, 216/ 33
man be ware in a long work. "But yet 11, 216/ 33
quoth one of them, a gentlewoman, "have you considered 11, 216/ 34
deny but that in a side after mismarked with 11, 217/ 11
cannot deny it for a necessary point if faith 11, 217/ 23
fellow before this handle a thing so falsely or 11, 217/ 30
And layeth it for a foul repugnance in me 11, 219/ 9
make here so loud a lie, and pore better 11, 219/ 24
