Rev Fr John Colet
Birth: Jan., 1467
Greater London, England
Death: Sep. 10, 1519
Greater London, England

Theologian. The son of Sir Henry Collet, who twice served as Lord Mayor of London, he graduated from Magdalen College, Oxford, and became a priest in 1498. From 1504 until his death he was Dean of Saint Paul's Cathedral in London, and with a large inheritence from his father he founded St. Paul's School (1510). He also served as private chaplain to Henry VIII, even though he opposed the king's war with France. A noted Christian humanist, Colet was closely associated with Erasmus and Thomas More. He advocated religious reform but was deeply opposed to any break from Roman Catholic Church. (bio by: wildgoose)
