About-

The Parker Society was the London-based Anglican society which printed in fifty-four volumes the works of the leading English Reformers of the sixteenth century. It was formed in 1840 and disbanded in 1855 when its work was completed. Its name is that of Matthew Parker, the first Elizabethan Archbishop of Canterbury, who was known as a great collector of books. The stimulus for the foundation of the society was provided by the Tractarian movement, led by John Henry Newman and Edward B. Pusey. Some members of this movement spoke disparagingly of the English Reformation, and so some members of the Church of England felt the need to make available in an attractive form the works of the leaders of that Reformation.

Bio(s)-

Thomas Becon (1512-1567) was educated at Cambridge and studied under Latimer. When Elizabeth I came to the throne, Becon became a canon of Canterbury. He published over forty volumes, all being saturated with Scripture. Though many wanted him dead, Becon died naturally, having spent his life in training young men, writing, and preaching.
