Brilliant Oxford scholar, accomplished writer, and deacon of the Protestant Church, Campion became disenchanted with the ‘new religion’, and was ordained as a Catholic Priest in 1578. He was one of the first Jesuits sent on the English mission, but was captured within a year and imprisoned in the Tower. Condemned by a rigged jury on the false charge of plotting against Queen Elizabeth, he was executed at London’s Tyburn (near today’s Marble Arch) in 1581 at the age of 41. One of the Forty Martyrs, he was canonised in 1970.
