Not illustrated. 1840 edition. Excerpt: ... the auncient and holy Doctours as Austeyne Chrisostome and others expressely avouche the Lordes bodye and bloud to be offered of the ministers, whych thyng they wold never have affyrmed oneles they were offered so in verye dede, and that accordynge too Gods worde. In dede it is fulle certayne that the sayd Doctours avouche both thee LORDE'S bodye and hys bloude to bee sacrificed but not after oure Catholiques meaninge. For why they understand by the sacryfyce of christes body and bloud done by the minister only the resembleance and memorye of the true and bloudy sacryfyce of the sayd body and bloude which is the communion and not any real and true sacrifice of the same executed by the priest as the catholiques mistake them.

And he lieth not who being demaunded answereth he is offered. For yf the sacramentes have not some semblaunce of the matters wher of they be sacrementes, they were more
