(p.243) 1 Whitgift
The Elizabethan Puritan Movement

Patrick Collinson

The date of John Whitgift's election — September 23rd, 1583 — was a decisive climacteric in the history of the reformed Church of England. As early as May 6th, Walsingham's secretary, Nicholas Faunt, had reported the likelihood that he would be Grindal's successor, but, as he thought, in little else except the title. Once Whitgift was in, he wrote gloomily. Not all puritans shared Faunt's reaction to the first news of Whitgift's promotion.
