Carpenter, George

Carpenter, George an English martyr, resident Emmerich, in Bavaria, was brought before the council for the following offences: (1) He did not believe that a priest could forgive sins; (2) he did not believe that a man could call God out of heaven; (3) he did not believe that God was in the bread which the priest places over: the altar, but that it was the bread of the Lord; (4) he did not believe that the water itself, in baptism, could bestow grace. He utterly refused to recant, and was burned in 1527. See Fox, Acts and Monuments, 4:374.
