Burnt at the stake in 1555, John Philpot was a fiery Reformer, constantly in conflict. His work is representative of the Reformation’s most expressive thinkers. This volume contains an assortment of his writings compiled by the Parker Society, including Disputation on the Convocation-House and an Apology for Spitting upon an Arian.
John Philpot (1516–1555) was archdeacon of Winchester. He was burnt at the stake under Mary I. Philpot was noted for his fiery, quarrelsome nature—even debating fellow prisoners who were Pelagians.
