Did the English Reformers Teach "Real Presence" in the Lord's Supper?

“The Church of England has wisely forborne to use the term of Real Presence in all the books that are set forth by her authority. We neither find it recommended in the Liturgy, nor the Articles, nor the Homilies, nor the Church’s nor NOWELL’S Catechisms. For, although it be once in the Liturgy and once in the Articles, it is mentioned in both places as a phrase of the Papists and rejected for their abuse of it.”—p.15.
From: 

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND IS PROTESTANT
Church Association Tract 049


HISTORICAL TESTIMONY
TO THE
PROTESTANTISM OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND
FROM HER
ARTICLES, FORMULARIES, CONSTITUTION, HIGH CHURCH AUTHORITIES AND
CONVOCATION.

The Church Association Tracts are useful for refuting common arguments used by Anglo-Catholics, Tractarians, and High Churchmen today.  Although they were written from 1860-1918, they are still as relevant today as they were when they were originally written.  Unfortunately, modern Anglican Evangelicals have lost their polemical abilities to soundly refute heresy, even those doctrines posing as "orthodox and conservative" Anglicanism.  To read the entire article, click here:  The Church of England is Protestant.
