Strana 72 - The visible Church of Christ is a congregation of faithful men, in the which the pure Word of God is preached, and the Sacraments be duly ministered according to Christ's ordinance, in all those things that of necessity are requisite to the same. As the Church of Jerusalem, Alexandria, and Antioch, have erred ; so also the Church of Rome hath erred, not only in their living and manner of Ceremonies, but also in matters of Faith.

Strana 420 - The Book of the Roman Catholic Church; in a series of Letters addressed to Robert Southey, esq. on his "Book of the Church.
Strana 208 - Huiusmodi namque copulationem, quam contra ecclesiasticam regulam constat esse contractam, matrimonium non esse censemus.
Strana 70 - straight gate : for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, which leadeth to destruction, and many there be who go in thereat ; 14. Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Strana 34 - Et, si satisfacere contempserit infra annum, significetur hoc summo pontifici, ut extunc ipse vasallos ab ejus fidelitate denunciet absolutos et terram exponat catholicis occupandam, qui eam exterminatis haereticis sine ulla contradictione possideant et in fidei puritate conservent; salvo...
