John Whitgift, author of the Lambeth Articles, was the last Elizabethan archbishop of Canterbury. His writings reflect the religious climate of England as the doctrines of the Reformation took hold across the whole church and Puritans were increasingly persecuted. Volume 1 of his works covers the first six tractates in his ecclesiological conflict with Puritan Thomas Cartwright.
John Whitgift (1530–1604) was archbishop of Canterbury from 1583 until his death. He tutored Francis Bacon in classics at Cambridge, attended to Elizabeth I on her deathbed, and crowned James I.
