Sermons by Hugh Latimer

Overview

The Sermons of Hugh Latimer collection is an essential resource for anyone interested in the English Reformation. Along with Thomas Cranmer and Nicholas Ridley, Hugh Latimer was one of the three bishops known as the Oxford Martyrs. Though a onetime Roman Catholic bishop, Latimer was convinced of the need for a reformation. He preached strongly in support of an English translation of the Bible. Latimer, who was chaplain to Edward VI, was imprisoned for his preaching when Edward’s sister Mary took the throne. Tried and convicted of heresy, Latimer was burned at the stake alongside Nicholas Ridley (Cranmer was burned later). His last words before the fire was lit were to Ridley. “Play the man, Master Ridley; we shall this day light such a candle, by God’s grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out.” Sermons by Hugh Latimer contains a memoir of Latimer and 30 of his sermons. • Sermons on the Card • Sermon on the Epistle for the Twenty-first Sunday after Trinity, 1535 • Sermons before the Convocation of the Clergy, 1536 • Sermon of the Plough, 1548 • Seven Sermons Preached before King Edward the Sixth, 1549 • Last Sermon Preached before Edward the Sixth, 1550 • Sermon Preached at Stamford, 1550 • Sermons on the Lord’s Prayer, 1552 • Sermon on the Gospel for St. Simon and St. Jude’s Day, 1552 • Sermons Preached in Lincolnshire, 1552
