Edmund CampionCampion (Edmund)
(1540–1581)
English Jesuit priest and martyr, son of a London-based bookseller; one-time tutor to Richard Stanihurst in Ireland and author of Two bokes of the histories of Ireland (1571). Because his preaching activities in various parts of England were deemed dangerous and political by Anglican authorities, he was arrested on the charge of high treason and finally, hanged, drawn and quartered.
