The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church, second edition, revised by F.L. Cross and E.A. Livingstone. It’s in the entry on Michel Baius:

“In 1560 eighteen of his propositions were censured by the Sorbonne. Even so, Baius and Hessels were chosen to represent the University in 1563 at the Council of Trent, and received the powerful protection of the King of Spain. Further publications by Baius resulted in the bull ‘Ex omnibus afflictionibus’ (1 Oct. 1567), in which a large number of propositions from his writings, or embodying his doctrine, were condemned, but which did not mention him by name.”

Why didn’t I have Hemingway on my desk?
