The Remains of Edmund Grindal
Author: Edmund Grindal

Publication Date: 1843
Edmund Grindal, archbishop of Canterbury under Elizabeth I from 1576–1583, was called by John Milton “a grave and pious man,” compared to the pretension of other Elizabethan bishops. He was admired by his fellow Puritans and attacked by high churchmen in later centuries. This collection gathers works from throughout the affable bishop’s career, including sermons, letters, and several official documents that shed light on the ever-shifting religious climate in England.
Edmund Grindal (1519–1583) was bishop of London, archbishop of York, and finally archbishop of Canterbury during Elizabeth I’s reign, though he very well may never have actually visited Canterbury.
