Philip Howard 1557 - 1595 was an English
nobleman, son of the Duke of Norfolk and godson of Philip II King of Spain.
19th October in Arundel and Brighton Diocese
4th May as one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales
After a frivolous 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 warrant.
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.
