    What made the interrogatories particularly onerous was that anyone subjected to them was required first to take the oath ex officio mero, an oath that required that the subject swear to answer the questions truthfully before being told what the accusation was. Some of the most important trials of Protestants during this period centered on efforts to make such forced self-accusation or self-incrimination illegal, an effort that would not find success until 1641. Among the large number of tracts and treatises produced in relation to the Presbyterian movement, the best-known are the Martin Marprelate tracts, printed in 1588 and 1589 on secret presses and distributed around London and at court.

    One instance in which unusually high expenses were undertaken occurred in the staging of Cardinal Wolsey at the Rose in 1601. Although the dramatists who wrote parts 1 and 2 of the play seem to have received the customary payment (£6 per play) for doing so, a year after the play was composed Henry Chettle (one of the playwrights who wrote the original book) was paid an additional £1 ‘‘for the mending of the first part’’ of the play. When the play was mounted during the previous year just over £37 was laid out for costuming, an exorbitant amount of money, even for a two-part play for which the costumes would presumably be used in both parts of the production (Foakes and Rickert 1961).
