John Jewel

(1522-1571), Bishop of Salisbury

Sitter associated with 14 portraits
Jewel, a learned churchman, was a fervent advocate of the Reformation, and fled England during Mary's reign to escape persecution. He returned in 1559 and was made Bishop of Salisbury. Jewel published the first methodical statement of the position of the English church against the church of Rome, Apologia pro Ecclesia Anglicana, and a number of other works defending Anglicanism.
