The Errata of the Collation are printed at the
End of the Book.
Shall prepare the way for my intended Ejay, by exhibiting a Collation of all the ancient Copies of the Articles, both Printed and Manufcript. Now there are two MS. Copies of the Articles, the one in Latin, the other in English, which were both given, with a vast Quantity of
other MSS. to Corpus Cbristi (commonly callid Bennet) College in Cambridge, by Archbishop Parker. The Latin Copy was figned Jan. 29. 1962. and the English Copy was figned May 11. 1571. Each of these Copies is denoted in the following Collation by the Letters MS. But the Distinction is apparent notwithstanding. For when the Reference belongs to the Latin Text, the Letters MS. betoken the Latin Copy ; but when the Reference belongs to the English Text, those Letters betoken the English one.
The Printed Copies are numerous. They are partly Latin, and partly English.
One Latin Copy is printed in O&avo by Reginald Wolf. It contains 36 Pages (reckoning the Title, and the Blank on the back side' of it, for two) but the Pages are not numbred. It bears Date 1563. In the Title Page there is a Fruit Tree describ'd in a sort of a Target, under which are two Boys; the One seems climbing, the other gathers the Fruit fallen to the Ground ; and between the Limbs of the Tree there is a Label with Charitas in it. The Articles are printed in Roman, but the Titles in
