The Works of John Whitgift, D.D free pdf Excerpt from The Works of John Whitgift, D.D: The Third Portion, Containing the Defence of the Answer to the Admonition, Against the Reply of Thomas Cartwright It seems that he could by no means be persuaded to attend morrow-mass at the cathedral, and manifested such a dislike to the prevailing superstitions, that his horror-stricken relative, attributing to his sojourn with her some misfortunes that had occurred, sent him back to his father, her farewell being that, though she thought at first she had received a saint into her house, she now perceived he was a devil. In 1548, or 1549, he was sent to Cambridge and placed in Queens' college, but he afterwards migrated to Pembroke hall, where bishop Ridley was master, and Grindal and Bradford at that time fellows, the latter becoming his tutor. On his recommendation, backed by that of Grindal, he was appointed to a scholarship and made bible-clerk, a very acceptable emolument, as his father's circumstances were now embarrassed by great losses at sea. In 1553-4 he commenced B.A., and was elected fellow of Peter-house in 1555, being admitted with two others May 31 of that year. Dr Andrew Perne was then master of the college, and proved a kind patron and fast friend of young Whitgift. For not only did he have him carefully attended when suffering under a dangerous sickness, but he shielded him in 1556 during the perilous visitation of the university by the commissioners appointed under cardinal Pole's authority. Whitgift had conceived it impossible to escape their severity without violation of his conscience, and therefore resolved to retire to the continent- but, by Dr Perne's persuasion, who being at that time vice-chancellor had it in his power to protect him, he relinquished his intention, and remained unmolested without any unworthy concession. Better times were approaching- and after the accession of queen Elizabeth he was ordained in 1560, and preached his first sermon at St Mary's from Rom. i. 16, obtaining thereby great credit with his audience. His degrees were M.A. 1556- B.D. 1563- and D.D. 1567: on which last occasion he maintained in his act this thesis, Papa est ille anticihristus. About the time of his commencing B.D. he was made Margaret professor of divinity, succeeding Dr Ilutton, afterwards archbishop of York.
