Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F. Pollard's "Thomas Cranmer and the English Reformation: 1489-1556" at: February 2015: Jaspar Ridley's "Thomas Cranmer" at:

Bishop of Wells
Archbishop of Canterbury
Died: 8th January AD 926

Athelm is said to have been a monk of Glastonbury and to have been raised to the episcopate in 909. In that year, the two dioceses of Wessex were increased to five. Wells became the seat of one of the new bishoprics and Athelm its first Bishop.

He was translated to Canterbury, in AD 914 and died in AD 926.
