D— House, Gloucestershire, 14 March, FOR preservation in your pages I send copies of three monumental inscriptions obtained under very different circumstances by Yours truly, E. D. 1. The first is on a brass plate fixed on the floor of the south side of the nave of King's Stanley Church in this county, it has never been noticed by any of our county historians, haying been covered by pews until the thorough repair and alteration of the church about thirty years since. It is remarkable from this circumstance, as also for its recording the numerous and patriachal family of the progenitor of the Clutterbucks, whose prolific

RETROSPECTIVE REVIEW.

Nicolai Vernulai Henricus Octavus, seu Schisma Anglicanum. Tragédia eachibita ludis Encenialibus Lovanj in Collegio Porcensi Lovanii. 12mo. 1624. THIS is so scarce a little volume that we never saw a copy but that which is in our possession, and which belonged to the late Mr. Bindley of the Stamp Office. The Play was exhibited at Louvaine by the students and pupils of the Porcensian College there, whose names are given. The author is of course a zealous Catholic. Anne Boleyne appears in it under a name which cannot be well mentioned to ears polite. The characters are Queen Katharine, Princess Mary, Sir Thomas More, Fisher Bishop of Rochester, Cardinal Campegio, Wolsey, Cranmer, Warham, Longland, Anne Boleyne, Margaret Roper, and others, together with Heresy, Luxury, Impiety, Tyranny, the Catholic Religion, and Reason. The Censor's permission runs thus: “Tragoedia haec praelo digna, evidenter ostendit, quam were a philosopho dictum situno absurdo dato, caetera consequi.” Act 1. The play is opened by the speech of Heresy, the other emblematical characters accompanying her; and she commences by boldly pronouncing

. .

Venerem suam
Rex ustulatus deperit: natam suam
Et quam nefando genuit incestu pater
Habere jam vult conjugem,” &c.

Tyranny adds,

“Et efferatum, et mente crudelem impia
Agitabo Regem, dum suo demens sinu
Stringit Bolenam,” &c.

Henry appears in the second scene, at once confessing his newly awakened flame.

“Una est dolorem quae mihi tantum facit,
Una est Bolena fascino nam me sud
Occidit illa; risus, et formae lepos
Et oris illa gratia, et vernus decor
Illud perurunt pectus, et flammas alunt,
Uno trucidant lumina aspectu comae
Animum hunc amoris vinculo blando ligant.
Tot his et illis impero populis potens,
Uni Bolenae servio,” &c.

Luxury exhorts the King to indulge all his wishes,

“—Una si forsan placet
Bolena Regi, placeat et thalamum impleat,
Implevit illum mater, implevit soror.”

And Tyranny assists in these evil councils, but Henry owns that he is fearful,

“Vereor Tumultus—Caesar et Reges scient
Si quid movebo, nec satis forsan meus
Probabit Anglus.”

Anne Boleyne now enters, reproaching the King for his gloomy looks, and exhorting him to join in the festivities; but when he opens his grief to her she says,

“Ignosce, Rex, jurata mens est hatc mihi,
Hanc castitatis nemo decerpet rosam
Nisi sit meritus.”

Wolsey then appears, and gives his opinion that the marriage with Katharine was not legal, and advises the King to take the King of France's sister to wife.

“Sit alia magni Galliae Regis soror,
Est digna Rege, Regius sanguis simul."

He then appears with Reason, Piety, and Clemency on the stage with him, who argue the matter in a different way, but in vain. At length comes a Chorus “Virginum Anglicarum ” in praise of Chastity, and in abuse of Anne Boleyn, who is called Peller, and Meretriz, and Scortum, throughout. The second Act opens with Queen Katharine and Thomas More. The injured Queen says,

[ocr errors][merged small]

More endeavours to console her with some moral reflections. Then Henry questions Brian as to what is said of his intended divorce in the Senate, and what the Bishops say,

“Ast ordo sacer
Quid ille de me 2"

But the answer not being very favourable, Anne Boleyne tells him
“Duces pudicam, virginem castam, probam,”

and again insists on marriage; and Longland suggests that the Pope should choose some judge to decide the matter,

“Et purpuratis Patribus Campegium,
Volsaeus alter junctus est judex simul,”
