Most of the members of the lower house are elected by the clergy of each diocese by proportional representation from among their number,  although a handful serve ex officio or are elected by special constituencies such as universities or cathedral deaneries. John Pym, MP for Tavistock, spoke for many of his colleagues when he claimed that Parliament should play a key role in the governance of the Church: And howsoever it is alleged that the Parliament are not judges in matters of faith, yet ought they to know the Parliaments have confirmed acts of General Councils, which have not been received until they have been so authorized; and Parliaments have enacted laws for the trial of heretics by jury.
In the members of Convocation resolved themselves for deliberative purposes into four groups: bishops, monastic representatives, dignitaries and proctors of the clergy.
