Thomas Cranmer

Thomas Cranmer was a leader of the English Reformation and Archbishop of Canterbury during the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI, and for a short time, Mary I. He was instrumental in shaping the Anglican Church and is credited with creating the first structured liturgy in the English language, the Book of Common Prayer. Cranmer was eventually executed for heresy by Queen Mary I, who was a staunch Catholic, and he is remembered as a martyr and significant figure in English religious history.
