Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


Although at first an enemy of the Reformation in England, Hugh Latimer quickly became one of its leading advocates after having a change of mind. Henry VIII appointed him Bishop of Worcester a few years later. Under Catholic Queen “Bloody” Mary, however, Latimer’s teaching and preaching, rather than encouraged by the English monarchy, was outlawed and condemned. Along with Nicholas Ridley and Thomas Cranmer, Latimer was burned at the stake in 1555 for heresy. When the crown allowed him to preach freely, Latimer not only defended the reformed faith from the pulpit, but often spoke on the practical teachings of Christ and St. Paul. This volume contains a number of his pastoral sermons as well as ceremonial sermons delivered before the English nobility.
