Public disputation held in Cambridge between Martin Bucer and masters Young, Sedgewick and Perne (Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Disputatio publica habita Cantabrigiae inter M. Bucerum respondentem et magistros Yungum Sedgwicum et Pernum opponentes de his propositis, Canonici libri decent soli abunde renatos, quae sint saluti omnia. Nulla est in terris ecclesia, quae non erret tam in fide quam in moribus. Ita gratis justificamur a Deo, ut ante justificationem re vera peccatum sit, iramque Dei in nos provocet, quicquid boni operis facere videamur: justificati autem bona opera facimus necessario. (Content authored by Nasmith)
