Philip Howard 1557 - 1595 was an English nobleman, son of the Duke of Norfolk and godson of Philip II King of Spain.
After a frivilous youth at the court of Elizabeth I he witnessed a
debate on theology with Edmund Campion and Ralph Sherwin which inspired
him to reconcile with his wife and take his Catholic faith seriously.
He was arrested on charges of treason and spent 10
years in the Tower of London where he died of dysentery. He was kept
mostly in solitary confinement fearing execution, although the charges
were never proved and Queen Elizabeth did not sign his execution
He requested permission, when dying, to see his wife and son whom he had
never met because of his incarceration. He was offered the opportunity
if he renounced this Catholicism to see them and have his titles and
lands restored, but he refused.
He died alone on 19th Oct 1595.
He was canonised as one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales by Pope Paul VI in 1970.
He is one of the patron saints of the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton, England.
19th October in Arundel and Brighton Diocese
4th May as one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales.
