The Novelty of Transubstantiation

‘We have proved it here before, that the leprosy of transubstantiation did not begin to spread over the body of the Church in a thousand years after Christ. But at last the thousand years being expired, and Satan loosed out of his prison, to go and deceive the nations, and compass the camp of saints about, then, to the great damage of Christian peace and religion, they began here and there to dispute agains the clear, constant, and universal consent of the fathers, and to maintain the new-started opinion.’

— John Cosin, Bishop of Durham, The History of Popish Transubstantiation (tr. Luke de Beaulieu)
