A REASONABLE REQVEST AND PRO∣TESTATION OF W. Fulke to all learned Papists.

FOrasmuch as there is no ende of writing bookes (as the wise man sayth) and that the truth of argu∣mentes is best discerned when it is brought vnto the iudgement of Lo∣gicke, which is the arte of reasoning: If any of the learned Papistes will reply against these, and other mine aunsweres, I require that (as well for their owne ease, as that I may haue time to peruse them, and the readers no impediment, but that they may clearely iudge of them,) they wil leaue of all vayne discourses, and needelesse questions, and only con∣clude the cōtrouersies of religion that are betwene vs, in the strict forme of Logicall argumentes. If to this reasonable request they refuse to yeelde, I pro∣test before God and the world, that they shew them selues thereby to be enemies of the truth, that they flie the light, and dare not abide the triall.
