Hugh Latimer

(circa 1485-1555), Bishop of Worcester

Sitter associated with 33 portraits
Bishop of Worcester (1535), Latimer encouraged puritanism in his diocese, and resigned his bishopric in 1539 because he could not support the Act of the Six Articles. On Mary I's accession he was imprisoned in the Tower, and two years later condemned as a heretic and burnt at the stake with Ridley in Oxford.
