He was in turn Bishop of Chichester, Ely and Winchester, and oversaw the translation of the Authorized (King James) Version of the Bible. His 'Tortura Torti' - a learned work which grew out of the Gunpowder Plot controversy - was written in answer to Bellarmine's 'Matthaeus Tortus' which had criticised James I's own book on the oath of allegiance. This collection of his works includes several of his numerous sermons and essays.
