Chapter Summary

In 1534, on the feast of the Circumcision of the Lord, the Rothmanite Henry Roll gave a sermon in the Church of St. Giles. When the council learned of this, they sent attendants there to take keys from the beadle at the end of the sermon and close the church, so that no one of that faction would have any ability to preach there. Fabricius, who stood out among the evangelicals for the outstanding authority and favor which he enjoyed and who eclipsed the others by virtue of his tongue, was the only one whom the Rothmanites had to tolerate against their will. At the end of a sermon that he gave on January 4, Fabricius publicly attacked Rothman’s doctrine. Fabricius offered to debate against all the Rothmanites and Cerberus himself at his own risk before any fair and uncorrupted judges.
