Overview

Archbishop John Bramhall was a Royalist and ardent supporter of the Church during the seventeenth-century English Civil War. He doggedly defended the English Church from its Puritan and Catholic critics, as well as the nascent materialist philosophies of Thomas Hobbes. On multiple occasions during the war, he narrowly escaped capture. As a result, he did the bulk of his most significant writing while in exile, constantly rebutting the Church’s enemies in Rome and across intellectual landscape of Western Europe. His passion is evident in these works, as the editor states, “It is impossible to read a sentence of Bramhall’s writings without feeling that he is in earnest.” The Library of Anglo-Catholic Theology’s five-volume Works of John Bramhall gathers his letters, sermons, and discourses responding to various critics of the Church.

About John Bramhall

John Bramhall (1594–1663) was an Anglican theologian and apologist. He was an important defender of the English Church during the English Civil War, frequently addressing Roman Catholic, Puritan, and materialist critics. Born in Yorkshire, he was educated at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, eventually earning his Doctor of Divinity there in 1630. In 1633, he joined Thomas Wentworth in Ireland and was archdeacon of Meath, promoting the cause of the Church of England. In 1642, he returned to Yorkshire and preached and wrote in support of Charles I. After the battle of Marston Moor he fled abroad and wrote in defense of the Church as an exile until the Restoration in 1660. He was Archbishop of Armagh in the Church of Ireland from 1660 until his death.
