Cambridge, Corpus Christi College, MS 102: The Writings of Martin Bucer and others
- Matthew Parker's manuscript collection naturally reflects his interest in Reformation theology and theologians and the religious debates which took place in the sixteenth century. MS 102 is one of the compilations of tracts and letters Parker assembled from his collection. The volume opens with several pieces relating to the public disputation held in Cambridge between the Regius Professor of Divinity, Martin Bucer (1491-1551), and masters Young, Sedgewick and Perne. This material is followed by a treatise by Christopher Carlile (d. c. 1588), an English clergyman and graduate of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. Much of the rest of the volume relates to debates regarding the sacraments and to tracts and materials relating to rebellion and sedition. The manuscript dates to third quarter of the sixteenth century.
