Had Bishop John Hooper been born in the seventeenth century, he would have been regarded as a Low Church Anglican of a rather Puritan disposition. In the emerging Church of England of the sixteenth century, he was deemed a strong supporter of the theology and practices of the Reformed churches on the continent. He was opposed to the wearing of clerical vestments, and he dismissed the notion of a legitimate place for adiaphora or “indifferent matters.” He was an effective bishop during the reign of Edward VI, but was later martyred by Queen Mary Tudor.
