Chris Smyth refers to Archbishop Bancroft's “extremely sticky fingers”, but the stickiness of Bancroft's fingers was minor compared to those of Archbishop Parker, a century earlier. The books from Parker's library, including the St Augustine Gospels, wound up at Corpus Christi, Cambridge, not at Lambeth.

"James I wrote a blunt rejection in the margins of a plea for lenience for Puritans: “Too great a toleration of you in queene Elizabeth’s tyme hath made you to be prikkels in our sydes.”

-Times Blog, on the Treasures of Lambeth Library-

This little gem from Church History should give cause for some reflection in today's struggles within the Church of England. Methinks certain Evangelical Prelates, like Winchester, the former ABC, and the former Rochester could take note!
