3rd November – Richard Hooker


Richard Hooker, (1554-1600) was the theologian who created a distinctive Anglican theology and was a master of prose and philosophy. In his masterpiece, Of the Lawes of Ecclesiasticall Politie, Hooker defended the Church of England against both Roman Catholicism and Puritanism and affirmed the Anglican tradition as that of a “threefold cord not quickly broken”, the Bible, the church, and reason.
