PREFACE

It is difficult to write a life of any of the more important personages of the English Reformation ; it is difficult to write without prejudice, and the documents of the last part of the reign of Henry VIII. and of the reign of Edward vi. have not yet been calendared. We have endeavoured to give a brief account of Latimer's life and doings, without attempting to deal in detail with the great critical and controversial questions of the time; some will, no doubt, think this improper, but we should like to point out that Latimer's position in English History is not of the kind to make a life of him a convenient startingpoint for a discussion of the complicated circumstances of those times.

We have to express our obligations to Canon Dixon's History of the Church of England in the Time of the Reformation, especially for the reign of Edward vi. and Queen Mary. The references to the State Papers are to the “ Letters and Papers, Foreign and Domestic," of the reign of Henry

Henry VIII. References to Latimer's Sermons and Remains are to the two volumes in the Parker Society's publications. References to Strype's Memorials are to the edition of the Clarendon Press, 1822, and to Strype's Cranmer, Clarendon Press, 1812. Morice, to whom

[ocr errors]

occasional reference is made (taken from Strype), was at one time secretary to Cranmer, and probably reasonably well acquainted with the circumstances of Latimer's life. Augustine Bernher was a personal servant of Latimer. The references to Foxe are to the edition of the Acts and Monuments published by R. B. Seeley and W. Burnside, London, 1838.
