About the Book

"The Apology of the Church of England" is a vast theological work written by John Jewel, a 16th-century English bishop. This book is a important piece of Reformation literature and serves as a protection and clarification of the principles, practices, and ideals of the Church of England during a duration of religious upheaval. John Jewel became a staunch defender of the English Reformation and a prominent parent inside the early Anglican Church. In "The Apology," he addresses the theological and doctrinal controversies of the time, especially those that emerged at some point of the reign of Queen Mary I, while Catholicism in brief regained prominence in England. The e book serves as an articulate argument in choose of the reformed English church, supplying a case for the distinctive non secular identification of the Church of England. It articulates the church's positions on issues like the authority of the Bible, the position of lifestyle, the character of the sacraments, and the veneration of saints. John Jewel's "The Apology" played a pivotal position in shaping the identification of the Church of England because it transitioned from Catholicism to Protestantism. It stays a treasured historical and theological aid for scholars, theologians, and everyone interested by the history of the English Reformation and the development of the Anglican faith.

About Author

John Jewel

John Jewel (alias Jewell) of Devon, England (24 May 1522 – 23 September 1571), was Bishop of Salisbury from 1559 until 1571. He was the youngest son of John Jewel of Bowden, Berry Narbor, Devon, and Alice Bellamye, daughter of Richard Bellamye. Until his matriculation at Merton College, Oxford, in July 1535, he was educated by his uncle John Bellamy, rector of Hampton, and other private tutors. He was trained there by John Parkhurst, who later became bishop of Norwich, but on August 19, 1539, he was elected scholar of Corpus Christi College, Oxford. He received his BA in 1540 and his MA in 1545 after being chosen fellow of his college in 1542. He built a name for himself as a teacher at Oxford and later became one of the most devoted pupils of Pietro Martire Vermigli, known in England as Peter Martyr. He received his BD in 1552 and was appointed vicar of Sunningwell, south of Oxford, and public orator of the university, for which he was required to write a congratulations epistle to Mary on her accession. He served as notary to Cranmer and Ridley at their debate in April 1554, but in the autumn he signed a number of Catholic documents. Despite being suspected, he went to London and then to Frankfort, where he arrived in March 1555.
