  • 1. vide article by Prof. Maitland in the English Historical Review, Jan. 1900. The style given above is Elizabeth's full style save only the earthly supremacy over the Church which could not politicly be asserted or rejected—hence the ambiguous "etc" which might or might not cover this ecclesiastical power, as subsequent events should show to be most convenient.

  • 70. The first of these was purchased between March 25th and June 24th; probably copies of the Prayer Book issued (with a command for its use on and after June 24th) in 1559. It was in common use some time before the official date (vide Strype's Life of Archbishop Grindal); vide note 5, p. 185.
  • 71. By injunctions issued in 1559, tables were to be substituted for altars; cf. note 6, p. 176.
  • 72. The injunctions of 1559 do not mention rood lofts. The rood or crucifix would disappear as an "image." cf. Stow's Annales, 1559 A.D. For the taking down of the Loft, see p. 192.
  • 73. In 1559 the Court of High Commission, established in that year, ordered a general visitation and issued injunctions very similar to those of 1547.
  • 74. Retained doubtless as one of the ordinary bells—its proper use would disappear with the abolition of the service of the Mass.
  • 75. cf. note 9, p. 154.
  • 76. The ordinary chalice would hardly serve for the Communion service (vide Archæologia xlii, 414).
