nature in each, quite perfect, not adopted, nor formed by fancy ; but the one and only Son of God, having in two natures (that is to say, divine and human) a unity of one person, not subject to passions, and also immortal as to his divinity ; but in his humanity suffering for us and for our salvation by the true sufferings of flesh ; who died and was buried, and descended into hell, and the third day rose again from the dead by the true resurrection of the flesh ; and on the fortieth day after his resurrection, he, with the same flesh with which he had risen again, and with his soul, ascended into heaven, and sits there at the right hand of God ; from whence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead, and to render to every one according to his works, whether they have been good or evil. Also, we believe in the Holy Ghost, full, and perfect, and true God, proceeding from the Father and the Son, of one equality, substance, omnipotence, and eternity in all respects with the Father and the Son. We believe in this Holy Trinity, and that it is not three Gods but one God, omnipotent, eternal, invisible, unchangeable.

And if being truly penitent they die in charity, before they have brought forth fruit meet for repentance of their sins, then we believe that their souls, escaping from the pains of purgatory or torment, as brother John has explained to us, are cleansed after death ; and that to the relief of pains of this kind, the suffrages of living men assist them, such as the sacrifice of the mass, prayers, alms, and other works of piety, which are frequently performed by faithful believers for others of the faithful, according to the institutions of the church. And we believe that the souls of those persons who, after having received
