Strona 512 - ... grievously whipped and burned through the gristle of the right ear with a hot iron of the compass of an inch about, as a manifestation of his wicked life, and due punishment received for the same.
Strona 316 - The persons that cast the lead into fodders, plucked up all the seats in the choir, wherein the monks sat when they said service ; which were like to the seats in minsters, and burned them, and melted the lead therewithall: although there was wood plenty within a flight shot of them...
Strona 418 - ... parlours were hung with altar-cloths ; their tables and beds covered with copes, instead of carpets and coverlids ; and many made carousing cups of the sacred chalices, as once Belshazzar celebrated his drunken feast in the sanctified vessels of the Temple. It was a sorry house, and not worth the naming, which had not somewhat of this furniture in it, though it were only a fair large cushion made of a cope or altar-cloth, to adorn their windows, or make their chairs appear to have somewhat in...
Strona 64 - How presumptuous then are ye, the rude commons of one shire, and that one of the most brute and beastly of the whole realm...
Strona 442 - Yet it is certain, that, in this age, small merits of courtiers met with a prodigious recompence for their service. Not only all the cooks, but the meanest turn-broach in the king's kitchen, did lick his fingers.
Strona 488 - We will not receive the new service, because it is but like a Christmas game; but we will have our old service of matins, mass, even-song, and procession in Latin, as it was before. And so we the Cornish men, whereof certain of us understand no English, utterly refuse this new English.
Strona 50 - Masters, there is a statute made whereby all persons be restrained to make their will upon their lands; for now the eldest son must have all his father's lands; and no person, to the payment of his debts, neither to the advancement of his daughters' marriages, can do nothing with their lands, nor cannot give to his youngest son any lands.
Strona 540 - ... being a divine work, not the mere creation of human genius. Instead of progressing on plan and system and from the will of a superior, it has shot forth and run out as if spontaneously, and has shaped itself according to events, from an irrepressible fulness...
Strona 513 - Competition, in fact, has only become in any considerable degree the governing principle of contracts, at a comparatively modern period. The farther we look back into history, the more we see all transactions and engagements under the influence of fixed customs. The reason is evident. Custom is the most powerful protector of the weak against the strong ; their sole protector where there are no laws or government adequate to the purpose.
Strona 168 - March ne^t, because the days are now so very short ; and from such time as I begin I trust shortly to dispatch it after such fashion, that when all is finished, I trust your lordship hath appointed me to do : and thus the Holy Ghost ever preserve your lordship in honour. At York, this 14th day of November, 1558, by Your lordship's most bounden headman, Richard Bellyeys.
