Saint Edmund Campion, Jesuit, Elizabethan, Golden Years, Edmund Campion film, DVD

Saint Edmund Campion, S.J., (24 January 1540 – 1 December 1581) was an English Roman Catholic Jesuit priest and martyr. While conducting an underground ministry in the now officially Anglican England, Campion was arrested by priest hunters. Convicted of high treason on account of his being a priest in England, he was hanged, drawn and quartered at Tyburn. Campion was beatified by Pope Leo XIII in 1886 and canonised in 1970 by Pope Paul VI as one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales. His feast is celebrated on 1 December.

“In condemning us, you condemn all your own ancestors - all the ancient priests, bishops and kings - all that was once the glory of England”.
