LONDON, Printed by J. Heptinstall, for Henry Faithorne and John Kersey at the Rose in St. Paul's Church-Yard. MDCLXXXV.


IF at anytime a Book of this nature hath been usefull, it seems now to be necessa­ry; when most men think themselves obli­ged to make a bustle for proselyting others to their Opinions, and yet are not certain wherein they differ one from another, or how far they agree together. Difference will still be difference, though, (to use a word well known at this time) it may be trimm'd under a disguise of Conformity: And therefore to prevent the mistakes and disappointments that those who labour about so good a Work, as the Ʋniting of Christians, under one and the same Belief, may meet with from Prejudice, Interest, or Artifice; perhaps not one thing may be more effectual, than the true stating of the Faith and Opinions of others; who, if they be ingenuous, will never be complemen­ted out of their Perswasions, nor look upon them as Friends, who would impose upon [Page]them, for friendship sake, what is inconsi­stent with their Principles.

It were to be wished indeed, that all men were of one mind, if Providence which go­verns the World thought it convenient it should be so, but since it hath been foretold, that Offences must come, it were to be desired at least, that all knew the minds one of ano­ther, that so they might rightly understand how to rectifie mistakes, or confirm the truth a­mongst men. In order to that usefull disco­very, probably none of those many, who have laboriously sifted the truth by their Criticks, deserve the Title of Candid and Impartial Judges, better than Father Simon, the Learned Authour of this Treatise, who through the whole Book has employed his great Talent with so much Integrity and Disenga­gedness, that one may say of him, Amicus Papa, Amici Graeci, Amici Latini, sed ma­gis Amica Veritas. And therefore when this Book came recommended from beyond Sea, and that I perused it; I thought that I could hardly, in my low Station, doe better service to the publick, than to render it into En­glish; especially seeing the whole design of it is, to clear matter of fact from mistakes, and aspersions, and the Belief and Practice of the Eastern Christians from the Erroneous No­tions that at this distance, may be given us of them by the Travellers and Writers of all [Page]sorts. And though, the Authour discourses largely of Transubstantiation as being the belief of the Greek Church, the Reader will easily perceive that he never meant to enter into the merits of the cause, and to dispute the truth of the Doctrine, which peradventure may seem (in the Author's Opinion) very diffi­cult to be attempted by Humane Reason; but barely to assert and relate matter of fact, which it is fit all should know: Nor, indeed, could he have used, in my weak Judgment, a meaner Argument either for or against that Doctrine, than the belief of an ignorant and opprest People, seeing Protestants that weigh things, are not startled or moved by the same be­lief, which they know to be maintained and pro­fessed in the Church of Rome, a Church far more conspicuous both for Freedom, Wealth and Learning than that of the forlorn Greeks. The truth is, the Learned Authour of a Dis­course lately published against Transubstan­tiation manages the Controversie much better, and reasons more closely to the point; when a­mongst his other Arguments, he assigns the time that that Doctrine came to be established in the Church, to be when Image-Worship was en­joyned by the second Council of Nice; which to me is as strong an Argument as any that Father Simon has produc'd, to prove that the Greeks who own that Council, and are very Superstitious in Image-Worship, have ever [Page]since entertained that belief, seeing no attempt was ever used before the Reformation, to convince them of the contrary.

Since then the onely design of this Book is to relate matter of Fact, and to clear the truth from mistakes, I Question not but that it will be so well taken, that even those Ingeni­ous Persons who have asserted in Print some things which they will find here contradicted, may not dislike what I have done (who am very carefull not to offend in any thing against the publick) in setting it forth in English; and since they or their Friends want not Lear­ning to defend the truth, they cannot be su­spected to want Modesty and Sincerity (if convinc'd) to acknowledge a mistake.

Gennadii primi Patriarchae Constantinopolitani post­quam à Turcis capta est, qui vixit circa annum salutis 1453.

MAximum itaque om­nium Dei miraculo­rum est hocce mysterium. Idcirco multa, uti jam dic­tum est, contra illud ob­jectant ex una quidem parte infideles, ex alia haeretici, & ex alia idiotae, qui rati­onem mysterii illius neque­unt intelligere: quas objec­tiones in hoc sermone mo­do solvimus. Alii siquidem dubitant, quomodo in mo­mento temporis panis & vi­ni substantia convertatur in corporis substantiam. Alii verò dubitant, quâ ratione fieri possit, ut substantia panis in corporis substanti­am transmutata, remaneant panis accidentia, illius vide­licet longitudo, gravitas, [Page 175]latitudo, color, odor, & quae in gustu est qualitas; ita ut sint panis accidentia, absque ejusdem panis substantia, & vera corporis substantia la­teat sub alterius substantiae accidentibus. Alii dubitant, quomodo fieri possit, Chri­stum extare in parva rei quae apparet extensione. Alii rur­sus dubitant, quomodo my­sticum Christi corpus, etiam in partes divisum, remaneat integrum, & partium quae­libet sit totum Christi cor­pus, idémque perfectum. Dubitant alii, & haec dubi­tandi ratio videtur maxima, quomodo idem Christi cor­pus unum fit in coelo & in multis simul altaribus super terram. Verùm istas dubi­tandi rationes jam solvimus, possumúsque solvere, gratià Christi noe illustrante. In pri­mis autem sapientissimi Ecclesiae Doctores, gratiae quae in vobis est ac studii duces, easdem solvunt. Vo­bis autem incumbit credere absque ulla haesitatione, si­militer & Christiani omnes credere debemus, mysticum illud corpus esse ipsummet Dominum nostrum Jesum, Mariae Virginis Filium, qui crucifixus est, quique nunc est in coelo, ille omnino i­dem est, qui sub panis acci­dentibus delitescit. Extat autem secundùm substanti­am in Sacramento, non verò secundùm gratiam & effi­caciam tantùm; neque my­sticum [Page 176]Christi corpus veri corporis figura est, sed pu­rum putum illius corpus: nunc enim figuris & umbris, sicut olim, minimè servimus, sed ipsismet rebus. Si quis autem Sanctorum sacrifici­um istud Dominicae illius coenae vocet antitypum, in­de fir quòd istud sacrificium illius fit figura, sicut & ho­dierni sacrisiculi figura sunt Jesu Christi, qui tunc fecit sacrificium: utriusque au­tem sacrificii eadem est per­fectio, nimirum transub­stantiatio.

De nomine ( [...]) Transubstantiationis.

IN confesso quidem est a­pud nos, ipsam ( [...]) transabstantiatio­nis vocem non extare apud priscos Theologos: nor­dum enim ussa haeresi circa mysterium illad exorra, si [Page 177]eos excipias, qui veram Ver­bi Incarnationem negabant, nova formare nomina Sanctis Patribus non curae fuit. Ve­rùm de voce nobis non est disputatio: non enim in ver­bis, potiùs quàm in rebus, pietatis vim sitam esse volu­mus. Itaque, si apud The­ologos invenerimus quod no­mine transubstantiationis sig­nificatur, quid vetat quo­minùs ista dictione, vel alià huic simili utamur? Quippe Patrem absque principio, & immortalem & ingenitum, nusquam in scriptura inveni­mus; similiter nec Filium e­jusdem cum illo substantiae, nec Spiritum Deum esse ex­presso verbo deprehendimus. Sed nihil vetat, imò pietatis est ac necessitatis, ob haere­ses quae nascuntur ex aliis qui­busdam quae eodem tendunt, voces istas formare, ut res quae intelligitur meliùs per­cipiatur, & ii, qui aliud sen­tiunt, refellantur, Quid e­nim unquam detrimenti pos­sit iis accidere, qui pietare erga Deum affecti sunt, si vocibus diversis eundem conceptum religiosum expri­mant, minimè video. Una­nimi autem consensu Theo­logos profiteri panem sancti­ficatum in substantiam carms Dominicae verè transmutari, quod idem est ac transub­stantiatio, jam allata testi­monia manifestè profestè probant. Justinus enim di­xit, cum quà ratione potuit [Page 178]carnem assumere, eddem e­tiam potuisse panem in suum corpus convertere. Secun­dum autem Cyprianum, Pa­nis quem Dominus ministra­bat Apostolis, mutatus non specie, sed naturà, omnipo­rente verbo factus est caro. Cyrillus Hierosolymitanus di­xit, Cùm aquam suàpte vo­luntate in vinum mutaverit in Cana Galilaeae, à fide non videtur alienum, illum vi­num convertiffein sanguinem. Iterum, panis qui videtur pa­nis, non est, quamvis id gustus praemonstret, sed Christi corpus: ita quod vi­detur vinura, non est vinum, etsi illud gustus monstret, sed est Christi sanguis. S. Ambrosius ait, Panis ille an­te verba quibus Sacramenta peraguntur, panis est; sed postquam sanctificatus fuit, è pane fit caro Christi. Gre­gorius Nyssenus ait, Rectè igitar credimus, panem qui Dei verbo sanctificatus fuit, in corpus Dei Verbi converti. Joannes etiam Chrysostomus Homilia 28. in Matth. Nos vices ministrorum gerimus: ille autem est qui ea sancti­ficat & efficit. Joannes Da­mascenus, Panis propositus, vinúmque cum aqua per in­vocationem & illapsum San­cti Spiritus divinitùs con­vertuntur in Christi cor­pus & sanguinem. Theo­phylactus [Page 179]Bulgariae, Jesus erga homines benevolus, spe­ciem quidem panis & vini servat, sed in virtutem carnis & sanguinis transmutat. Cae­terum, quâ ratione prisci Ecclesiae Doctores sumpse­runt productionem, aut trans­mutationem, aut conversio­nem, aut existentiam, aut transelementationem, aut quid fimile, eadem nuperi Theologi transubstantiatio­nem intelligunt. Sicut enim illi per illas voces panem pro­priè ac verè in corpus Chri­sti converti affirmant, ita hi eadem omnino ratione idem intelligunt per vocem tran­substantiationis, novo inven­to vocabulo, ob haereseos novitatem. Cùm enim qui­dam Berengarius & illius Dis­cipuli asseruissent, panem ac­cipere quidem gratiam ali­quam corporis Dominici se­cundùm accidens à Deo, non verò substantialiter converti in Christi corpus, sed mane­re non mutatum, & qualis erat ante consecrationem, qui tunc saniores erant The­ologi, ut insanam illius doctrinam everterent, dixe­runt panem transubstantiari in corpus Christi, non verò in aliquod corporis Christi accidens per quamdam alte­rationem mutari, sed panem substantialiter fieri Christi corpus. Nam sicut ante insa­nam Arii haeresim, nomen ( [...]) consubstantiale, neque in scripto, nec extra [Page 180]scriptum audiebatur; ubi autem impudenter Filium à Patris substantia ille separa­vit, publicatum est nomen il­lud à primi Concilii Patribus, qui confessi sunt Filium con­substantialem esse Patri, e­jusdémque ac unius substan­tiae, ut illos everterent qui amarulenter divinitatem se­parabant. Ita & in omni ae­tate, qui rectè Ecclesiam gu­bernant, novorum autores sunt vocabulorum propter novitates obortas, quod & in praesenti Sacramento fac­tum videtur: nam ante sep­timam Synodum ferè omnes de eo simpliciter locuti sunt; post septingentos autem à Christo annos, ubi qui vene­randas imagines impugna­bant in quadam Synodo à Constant congregatà, quam falsò septimam appellabant, impudenter publicassent, uni­cam esse imaginem Christi, panem scilicet, qui datur in Eucharistia, ex eo tempore qui postea fuerunt Patres coe­perunt in scriptis suis decla­rare, panem consecratum non esse figuram corporis Christi, sed veritatem, uti videre est in septima Synodo, & apud Joannem Damascenum & qui eum secuti sunt Patres. postquam autem Berengarii haeresis, qui negat Christi corpus & sanguinem esse [Page 181]substantialiter in divinis sym­bolis, pervenit in nostras Provincias, vox ( [...]) transubstantiatio inventa est, quae nullatenùs differt quoad sensum à transmutatione, aut conversione, aut transele­mentatione, quam prisci Patres adhibuerunt, uti jam dictum fuit. Si cui igitur Religio fit antiqua mutare vocabula, quasi alienum fit à pietate illorum voces mu­tare in alias, quae ejusdem omnino sint significatûs, quamvis illud sit ridiculum, modò tamen has voces eà ratione suscipiat, quâ usi sunt Patres, non erit our nos ei opponamus; sed illum uti nobiscum conscientem reci­pimus, illius quidem pieta­tem laudantes, at simplicita­ti ejus nos accommodantes. Verùm illum non existimo debere ab iis alienum esse, qui rem eamdem exprimunt verbis quae majoris videntur esse significatûs, minúsque accedunt ad Haereticorum sermonis ambiguitatem, aut quae Patrum mentem clariùs explicent: quippe nihil eo contensiosus est, quàm dif­ferre nominibus, cùm res ipsa est in confesso. Si verò transubstantiationem inficie­tur ob vocis illius virtutem, quia scilicet non putat panem & vinum mutari in Christi corpus & sanguinem, tunc illum ut alienum à nostra Ec­clesia [Page 182]& Fide respuimus, at­que uti novatorem damna­mus, ac illius novitates. A­liud siquidem à Divinis Patri­bus accepimus, nos scilicet esse participes corporis Do­mini nostri, modo sensili il­lud oculis aspicientes, sumen­tésque manibus, & illud ad os allatum manducantes, sic­que ejusdem cum Christo corporis fieri, illius carne & ossibus mysticè nutritos. Cùm enim modo corporali participes simus sensilis panis qui in Christi corpus substan­tialiter conversus est per om­nipotentem Verbi Divinita­tem, ad illud accedere didi­cimus modo quidem sensili, quatenus illud spectat panem & vinum, spiritualiter au­tem & mysticè, quòd non conspiciatur corpus huma­num carnem habens & ossa, neque modo corporali & eà­dem ratione qua reliqui ubi corporales eorum qui illum sumunt corda reficiat, sed spiritualiter ob Divinitatem quae inest, uti jam dictum fuit. Sed de his satis: jam enim praeter modum differere nos coegit quae nunc in no­stras Ecclesias inferre cona­tur Calvinianorum haere­sis.

An Extract from M. Claude's Copy of a Manuscript Letter ascrib'd to Meletius Archbishop of Ephesus, and pretended to have been written to some Divines of Leyden.



ILlis vero qui rogant me, utrum necesse sit Religio­nis cultu preces offerre Beatae Virgini, vel Angelis, vel Jo­anni Baptistae caeterisque Sanctis; sique oporteat cre­dere in Eucharistia, hoc est in coena Domini fieri tran­substantiationem in pane, aut putare oleum, exorcis­ma & exsufflationes expel­lere Daemones, aut adorare imagines Sanctorum, tam pictas quàm sculptas. Re­spondeo ac dico, nihil ho­rum observandum esse, quan­doquidem non licet opinio­nes humanas profiteri, sed ea solùm placita, quae à Do­mino & ab illius Discipulis atque Apostolis Spiritu Sanc­to afflatis nobis tradita sunt, cum pietate & inviolabiliter observare debemus.
