Its churches and edifices have grown hoary and tottering; the very chimes of its bells have a weird and drowsy sound; and its citizens, silent, listless, and pensive, look as if they belonged to the fifteenth century, and had no light to be seen moving about in the nineteenth. The Huguenot as he fled through the street, with agonized features, and lacking the protection of the white scarf, was easily recognised, and dispatched without mercy.

Therefore was he suddenly withdrawn into a deep silence, where the plaudits with which the word was ringing could not reach him; where he was alone with God; and where he could not but feel his insignificance in the presence of the Eternal Majesty. He stopped a moment on his way to execution, to greet James Guthrie, now under sentence of death, and confined in the same prison. They parted as men do who are soon to meet again, and Argyle, his step firm, and the light of triumph on his brow, went on his way.

The term Protestantism is scarcely older than 350 years. Philip went about some days with an anxious and clouded face, but when the clamor arose his brow cleared, his eye brightened, and he became the warmest. defender of the marriage of the Reformer, in which he was joined by not a few wise and moderate men in the Romish Church. [ 7 ] The union was hardly effected when, as we have already hinted, a shout of indignation arose, as if Luther had done some impious and horrible thing. "It is incest!" exclaimed Henry VIII. of England. "From this marriage will spring Antichrist," said others, remembering with terror that some nameless astrologer of the Middle Ages had foretold that Antichrist would be the issue of a perjured nun and an apostate monk. "How many Antichrists," said Erasmus, with that covert but trenchant irony in which he was so great a master, "How many Antichrists must there be then in the world already. [ 8 ] What was Luther's crime?

They headed their claim of rights with the free choice of their ministers; and it was a further peculiarity of this document, that each article in it was supported by a text from Scripture. [ 4 ] An enlightened policy would have conceded these demands in the main. He replied with equal magnanimity to the theologians that "he also must confess his Lord." The marriage festivities were at an end, and Pope Clement VII. turned his face toward his own land.

This misinterpretation was caused by the fact that the 1662 Book of Common Prayer retained two contradictory rubrics. In the same period, the spread of Anglicanism around the world, and the desire for liturgies to ref lect the Anglican Communion’s theological diversity, led to the birth of many younger siblings in the Prayer Book family. This was not a doctrine new to the reformers, but was taught by earlier groups, such as the Albigenses in 1147.

This is confirmed by Tavannes, who says: "The Kings of France and of Spain, at Bayonne, assisted by the Duke of Alva, resolved on the destruction of the heretics in France and Flanders." [ 14 ] La Noue in his Memoires bears witness to the "resolution taken at Bayonne with the Duke of Alva, to extirpate the Huguenots of France and the beggars of Flanders, which was brought to light by intercepted letters coming from Rome to Spain." [ 15 ] "Catherine de Medici," says Guizot, "charged Cardinal Santa Croce to assure Pope Pius V 'that she and her son had nothing more at heart than to get the admiral and all his confidants together some day, and make a massacre [un macello] of them; but the matter,' she said, 'was so difficult, that there was no possibility of promising to do it at one time more than at another.'" "De Thou," adds the historian, "regards all these facts as certain, and after having added some details, he sums them all up in the words, 'This is what passed at Bayonne in 1565.'" [ 16 ] We have it, thus, under the Pope's own hand, that he enjoined on Charles IX and Catherine de Medici the entire extermination of the French Protestants, on the battle-field if possible; if not, by means more secret and more sure; we have it on contemporary testimony, Popish and Protestant, that this was what was agreed on between Catherine and Alva at Bayonne; and we also find the Queen-mother, through Santa Croce, promising to the Pope, for herself and for her son, to make a massacre of the Huguenots, although, for obvious reasons, she refuses to bind herself to a day.

We ascend to it by the long, narrow, and winding Angrogna. The name "Protestant" originated from the "protestation" in which the leading German princes friendly to the Reformation united with fourteen cities of Germany on Apr. 25, 1529, against the decree of the Roman majority of the second Diet of Speyer (see S ). It’s like a mini hymn or worship song, only without music: GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

These sallies were like the light breaking in golden floods through the dark thunder-clouds. But of the free imperial towns fourteen had given special cause of displeasure to the emperor. His consistent message was that you and I cannot serve both God and money—the love of money can become a serious spiritual problem, a form of idolatry, in fact (in other words, breaking the second of the Ten Commandments). It was not his intention, however, to draw the sword in the first instance.

There is not just our own temptation, but a tempter. Only when Henry was succeeded by Edward VI, in 1547, could the reform that Cranmer wanted truly proceed. He appears nevertheless, to have been resigned to being unable for the present to establish in parishes the weekly practice of receiving Communion; so he restructured the service so as to allow ante-Communion as a distinct rite of worship—following the Communion rite through the readings and offertory, as far as the intercessory "Prayer for the Church Militant".
