First we ought out of the very scriptures, soundly to define of doctrines. Then afterward may the fathers be read with judgment. But that the scriptures should of necessity be subject unto the expositions of them, it nether can, nor ought to be.

For it were absurd, to make subject the judgements of God unto the judgements of men. And seeing they also are oftentimes obscure, and in their expositions divers, and manifold, this were to depart from the scriptures which are certain, to things uncertain.

For the reference, see Peter Martyr Vermigli on scripture and the authority of the church fathers.
