Seite 24 - Come, pensive Nun, devout and pure, Sober, steadfast, and demure, All in a robe of darkest grain, Flowing with majestic train, And sable stole of cypress lawn Over thy decent shoulders drawn. Come; but keep thy wonted state, With even step, and musing gait, And looks commercing with the skies, Thy rapt soul sitting in thine eyes...
Seite 65 - THE Romish doctrine concerning purgatory, pardons, worshipping, and adoration, as well of images, as of reliques, and also invocation of saints, is a fond thing vainly invented, and grounded upon no warranty of Scripture, but rather repugnant to the word of God.
Seite 64 - But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers...
Seite 84 - Christ, and by devising and phantasying vain opinions of purgatory and masses satisfactory to be done for them which be departed, the which doctrine and vain opinion by nothing more is maintained and upholden, than by the abuse of trentals, chantries, and other provisions made for the continuance of the said blindness and ignorance...
Seite 132 - I know a merchant-man which shall at this time be nameless, that bought the contents of two noble libraries for forty shillings' price : a shame it is to be spoken !

Seite 132 - A great number of them which purchased those superstitious mansions, reserved of those library books, some to serve their Jakes, some to scour their candlesticks, and some to rub their boots. Some they sold to the grocers and soap sellers, and some they sent over sea to the bookbinders, not in small number, but at times whole ships full, to the wondering of the foreign nations.
Seite 140 - This is good stuff for wise men to laugh at, or honest men to take pleasure at ! Yet I know when God's Bible was banished the court, and Morte Arthur received into the prince's chamber. What toys the daily reading of such a book may work in the will of a young gentleman or a young maid that liveth wealthily and idly, wise men can judge and honest men do pity.
Seite 139 - In our forefathers tyme, whan Papistrie, as a standyng poole, covered and overflowed all England, fewe bookes were read in our tong, savyng certaine bookes of chevalrie, as they sayd, for pastime and pleasure, which, as some say, were made in Monasteries by idle Monkes or wanton Chanons ; as one for example, " Morte Arthure " ; the whole pleasure of which booke standeth in two speciall poyntes, in open mans slaughter and bold bawdrye.
Seite 139 - ... as a standing pool, covered and overflowed all England, few books were read in our tongue, saving certain books of chivalry, as they said, for pastime and pleasure, which, as some say, were made in monasteries by idle monks or wanton canons: as one, for example, Morte Arthur, the whole pleasure of which book standeth in two special points — in open manslaughter and bold bawdry.
