Page  493The Third Passage. Book. 3.* pag. 151. CARD. BELLARMINE.

IT was affirmed that the first Imposition that Bellarmine could find of the Doctrine of Transubstantiation, as a matter of Faith, was about the yeare 1073. by Pope Gregory the Seventh.


Bellarmine said that he would prove against Scotus, that the Fa∣thers taught the same Doctrine.

ANSVV. Were his proofe as faisible, as I hold it Impossible, [ 10] yet was my Assertion, notwithstanding, most true, because I onely spake of the Imposition of this Doctrine of Transubstan∣tiation, as an Article of Faith, upon mens Consciences, not to have beene before that forenamed Pope Gregory the Seventh. The Contrary whereof neither hee, nor any for him, can shew out of any Ancient Father. The Advantage hee giveth us, is the bewraying of his owne Precipitancie.
