William Laud

Archbishop of Canterbury
b. October 7, 1573
d. January 10, 1645 (beheaded)

William Laud was one of the Caroline Divines, who were influential during the seventeenth century through the reign of Charles I and then, later, after the Restoration. Among the many Caroline Divines are Lancelot Andrewes, Jeremy Taylor and Herbert Thorndike.


Keep us, O Lord, constant in faith and zealous in witness, that, like thy servant William Laud, we may live in thy fear, die in thy favor, and rest in thy peace; for the sake of Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
