· The following clanse against the real presence and ubiquity of Christ's body was here added in the Parker Latin MS., but struck out in the Synod : 'Christus in cælum ascendens, corpori suo Immortalitatem dedit, Naturam non abstulit humane enim nature veritatem (iuxta Scripturas), perpetuo retinet, quam uno et definito Loco esse, et non in multa, vel omnia simul loca diffundi oportet. Quum igitur Christus in celum sublatus, ibi usque ad finem seculi permansurus, atque inde, non aliunde (ut loquitur Augustinus) venturus sit, ad indicandum viuos et mortuos, non debet quisquam fidelium, et carnis eius, et sanguinis, realem, et corpora. lem (ut loquuntur) presentiam in Eucharistia vel credere, vel profiteri. Corpus tamen Christi datur,' etc.

* This Article, which agrees with the Zwinglian and Calvinistic theory against the Lutheran, is wanting in all the printed copies until 1571, and has here been supplied from the Parker MS. See Hardwick, p. 315, note 3, and p. 143.
