Text heard on Sample:
My Lord Abbott, you are accused of idolatry, refusal of submission to His Majesty the King, perversion of the Holy Scripture, and rank heresy. How make you answer to these charges?
Sir, it is to their eternal shame that so many religious and others change their beliefs as their clothes, depending on the weather. If this month's law be last month's heresy, then can it not be kept, unless I lose my soul.
Call the Master of Corpus Christi, to witness against him.
He did tell us to resist the King's Majesty and continue notwithstanding to the death our allegiance to the Bishop of Rome. We were to resist the Commissioners needs be with force.
The King's desires are to be met; they are justified by reasons and counsel of many learned men who fear God.
Call the woman Rose Parrowe to proclaim his scandal.
You misuse me John.
