John Jewel was an English Bishop who published his Apology of the Church of England in 1562 during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. It was the first methodical statement of the position of the Church of England against the Church of Rome, and forms the groundwork of all subsequent controversy. The work was translated into English to reach a wider audience and was a significant step in the intellectual justification of Protestantism in England.
