Thomas Cranmer was born in 1489, in Nottinghamshire, England. A scholar of Jesus College of Cambridge, he went on to become the Archbishop of Canterbury, remaining so during the reigns of English kings Henry VIII and Edward VI. During his time as archbishop, Cranmer along with Thomas Cromwell supported the translation of the Bible into English. Well-known for his interaction with Henry VIII, his work on The Book of Common Prayer, and his teachings on the doctrine of transubstantiation, Cranmer also helped establish the structure of the Church of England. Cranmer was martyred in 1556 in Oxford.
