A.D. 1176. JUDGMENT PRONOUNCED UPON TH E ALBIGENSES. 425 Lombez. Against the things that had been propounded by the said heretics, many authorities were quoted from the New Testament by Peter, the lord archbishop of Narbonne, the bishop of Nismes, the abbat of Cahors, and the abbat of Font-froid ; for the said heretic refused to receive judgment, except on the New Testament. The following definite sentence, upon the authority of the New Testament, was accordingly pronounced by the bishop of Lyons, all observing strict silence in the presence of all the persons above-mentioned : " I Gilbert, bishop of Lyons, by command of the bishop of Alby and of his assessors, do adjudge these persons to be heretics, and do condemn the opinions of Oliverius and of his associates, wheresoever they may be ; and the following judgment, based on the New Testament, we do pronounce— " On the first head we do pronounce and adjudge them to be heretics. For the law is to be received through the Gospel, and he who receives not the law believes not our Lord Jesus Christ ; for in the Gospel he says, ' For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me : for he wrote of me.'9 7 And again, ' I am not come to destroy the law, but to fulfil it.'58 And again, 'All things must be fulfilled which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the Psalms concerning me.'9 9 Also, 'And beginning at Moses he expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.'1 But why did he expound the Scriptures, and why did he teach concerning the Law and the Prophets, except that he wished them to receive the Law and the Prophets, and that by the Law and the Prophets they might be confirmed in their belief ? Many things also did the Lord Jesus quote from the Law and the Prophets and the Psalms, which indeed a good teacher certainly would not have done if the Law and the • Prophets and the Psalms were not to be received. In deed also he showed that the law was good, inasmuch as he was circumcised, and presented in the Temple, and sacrifice was offered for him according to the law of Moses. Also, we find it written that he went up on the day of the feast. In the Transfiguration also, where Moses and the prophet Elias appeared unto him, they bore testimony unto him. By the Epistles also we do convict them ; for Saint Paul says, ' "Whatsoever things were 88 99 W St. John v. 46. • St. Matthew v. 17. St. Luke xxiv. 44. 1 St. Luke xxiv. 'il.
