"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Excellent question, ma'am. My understanding is that sheepskin was "erased" by scraping away the improperly inked layer of skin. Perhaps the broader implement is a scraper. Or perhaps it is a brush for an illumination? Anyone out there with a better informed answer?
