Part 1 deals with the first Christian families of Britain and Rome, about whom a surprising amount is recorded. Part 2 deals with Pauls lost letter to the Laodiceans, preserved in several European mss of the Latin Bible. Part 3 deals with Jeromes wilful corruption of the Scriptures to give seemingly Biblical sanction to the doctrinal innovations of his day. And Part 4 deals with the case of Richard Hunne, a Lollard merchant-tailor of London who was murdered in his prison cell in 1514 by the Bishop of Londons men for laying a legal challenge to the Roman Church in the Court of Kings Bench. His challenge was later taken up by Henry VIII when he banished the papal power from the realm of England.
