(And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. - John 1:5)
Interesting article, H. The question of the very modern innovation of Papal Infallibility appears to be a complicated one in some ways, but ultimately it is quite simple in that, as is noted here, The Church never believed such a thing. I am reading a new biography of the Emperor Franz Josef. There is a section of the book which deals with the consternation caused by that proclamation among the faithful, including the Prince Cardinals of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Emperor, a devout Roman Catholic, himself.

(Christ is Risen, and you, o death, are annihilated!)
I have seen the same quotes from the BCP used to argue that (a) the only sacrifice in the Anglican Eucharist is that of the "selves, souls and bodies"; and that (b) the Presence of Christ is not in the consecrated bread and wine but in the believer who duly partakes of them.
FWIW, I don't think Cranmer would unequivocally have agreed with the proposition that Christ is really present in the consecrated elements, but it's been more than 30 years since I wrote that paper.
(And then there's the nurse who thought BCP mean "birth control pills", but that's a story for another day.)
