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:

(Died AD 832)
Archbishop of Canterbury
Died: 30th August AD 832

Feologild was Abbot of a Kentish Monastery and was elected to the Archbishopric in AD 832, but died within three months of his consecration. He appears to have had a rival to the Archiepiscopate in the person of one Suithred.

Edited from G.M. Bevan's "Portraits of the Archbishops of Canterbury" (1908).
