Name applied by High Churchmen to a statement introduced 1552 at the end of the Order of Holy Communion in the Anglican Book of Common Prayer; it reads in part: [By kneeling] no adoration is intended, or ought to be done, either unto the Sacramental Bread or Wine there bodily received, or unto any Corporal presence of Christ's natural Flesh and Blood. When the practice of printing the rubrics* in red was introduced in the 19th c., this statement, improperly called a rubric, was printed in black.
