I wonder why Cranmer truncated today's Gospel from S John Chapter 20 to make it end at verse 23.
The still very useful Liturgy and Worship explains that "the events of the eighth day after Easter ... are now narrated in the second Lesson at Evensong." This may be true of twentieth century Anglican Lectionaries, but I cannot find that Cranmer made any such provision in 1549 or 1552. Maybe the fact that these verses appear as the Gospel on S Thomas's Day led him to avoid duplication. But he allowed substantially the same Gospel on Lent 4 and Trinity 25.
Just possibly ... ... could his problem have been the popularity in medieval Catholic iconography of the story after verse 24? And its close connection with the devotion to the Five Wounds? Already, in these earlier months of 1549 (the Prayer Book was printed in March), had there been rumours of Rustic Folk manufacturing banners of the Five Wounds?
This would not be only time in the History of Christianity when an intelligentsia committed to giving the Laity more Scripture ended up censoring the bits they were prepared to have the pewfodder hearing.
Incidentally, when did I John 5: 7-8, in today's Epistle, get dargged away from the Vulgate and the Textus Receptus? I suspect 1928.
