Excerpt from The Order of the Communion, 1548: A Facsimile of the British Museum Copy C. 25, F. 15

The appearance of the Order of the Communion in March, 1548, had been preceded by the passing, in December, 1547, of an Act of Parliament, in which provisions of very different kinds are curiously linked together. The first portion of the Act, after a prelude on the virtuous intentions of the king and his desire to govern his subjects by methods of clemency, indicates that "some bridle of fear" is necessary for certain persons, described as "men most contentious and arrogant for the most part or else most blind and ignorant," by whom "things well and godly instituted" are "perverted and abused," and that this tendency is especially apparent "in matters of religion and in the great and high mysteries thereof, as in the most comfortable Sacrament of the Body and Blood of our Saviour Jesus Christ, commonly called the Sacrament of the Altar, and in Scripture, the Supper and Table of the Lord, the communion and partaking of the Body and Blood of Christ." It proceeds, after a statement as to the institution of the Eucharist, to declare that the Sacrament has been "of late marvellously abused" by "unreverent and ungodly" disputations and reasonings, and by "such vile and unseemly words as Christian ears do abhor to hear rehearsed." It therefore enacts that any persons who after the first day of May, 1548, shall by words or otherwise deprave, contemn, despise or revile the Sacrament shall suffer fine and imprisonment at the King's pleasure, and directs the mode of proceeding against offenders.
