Hugh Latimer preaches before King Edward VI at Whitehall Palace

Contributing Institution
  • Latimer ("M. Latimer." ["Master Latimer"]) preaches from a large open-air pulpit, which has been erected in the Privy Garden at Whitehall Palace. Among his audience is King Edward VI ("K. Edward." ["King Edward"]), who listens, with three others, from indoors at a window at the left of the image. The woman who reads an open Bible at Latimer's feet may allude to Catherine Brandon, Duchess of Suffolk, who funded the activities of Latimer and other English Protestant evangelicals during Edward's reign. This woodcut appears in the first through fourth editions (1563, 1570, 1576, and 1583), but John Day first uses it in his edition of Latimer's 27 sermons (London: John Day, 1562).
