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.”

The collection contains Latimer’s sermons, letters, and miscellaneous doctrinal documents. The text is fully searchable, allowing you to jump to any particular section. Scripture references appear on mouseover. The sermons are linked to the other texts in your Logos library, so you can research a word or theological concept with a click.

About Hugh Latimer

Hugh Latimer (1487–1555) was born in a farming community in Thurcaston, Leicestershire, England. He attended Cambridge University; he was made a fellow of Clare College in 1510 and earned an MA in 1514. Latimer was ordained in 1515 and made university preacher and chaplain in 1524. The same year, he earned a bachelor of divinity. He was made Bishop of Worcestor in 1535, but was jailed and made to resign after he opposed Henry VIII’s six articles. He was freed by Henry’s son, Edward VI, and made the court preacher. When Mary I took the throne, Latimer was tried and convicted of heresy. In October 1555, he was burned at the stake along with Nicholas Ridley, near Balliol College, Oxford.
