See also Fuller's assessment in Church History, V: 393-6. 9 Not the least of the many influences which helped to give to Jacobean religious thought its anti-papal complexion was the attitude of the successive incumbents at Lambeth Palace. Richard Bancroft supported Sutcliffe's Chelsea College as well as the plans of Thomas James, and also commissioned anti-papal works by the moderate Calvinist episcopalians Thomas Morton and Robert Abbot. 10 Moreover, an abiding concern with the cosmic struggle against the Romish Antichrist was not merely the pre-eminent orientation of the Jacobean clergy, but was also a prominent mode of thought in parliament and among JPs in the provinces.
English anti-puritanism was not a static entity. As a recent historian has noted, by the early 1590s a far more polemically aggressive position was being adopted by some conformist divines. Partly in response to the more vitriolic tone of the Marprelate tracts of the late 1580s, authors such as Matthew Sutcliffe, and especially Richard Bancroft and Adrianus Saravia, were prepared to parallel the threat from Rome and from presbyterianism, and (in Bancroft's case) to insist that the threat was equally grave from both sides.
