Biography

The Rev. John Rogers was a Roman Catholic Priest who abandoned the Roman Catholic faith, to promote Protestantism. He published the first English Bible under the pseudonym Thomas Matthews. After taking charge of a Protestant congregation in Wittenberg for some years, Rogers returned to England in 1548. In 1550, he became Rector of St. Margaret Moyses and, in the following year he was made Vicar of St. Sepulchre in London. In 1551 he was made a prebendary. In April, 1552, his family were naturalized under a special act of Parliament. He continued his church work until the accession of Queen Mary to the throne, when on Sunday after her triumphal entry into London 16 July, 1553, he preached a sermon at St. Paul's Cross commending the "true doctrine taught in King Edward's days,," and warning his listeners against "pestilent Popery," he was summoned before the council and put under house arrest. He never preached again. In January 1554 Bonner, the new bishop of London, sent him to Newgate Prison where he remained for about a year. On 22 January 1555 Rogers and other Protestant preachers were brought before the Privy Council and examined. Cardinal Pole, on 28 January 1555, ordered a commission to proceed against persons liable to prosecution under the statutes against heresy, and six days later through sanction of the Council, Rogers was condemned and sentenced as an excommunicated heretic, to be burned to death at the stake at Smithfield. This sentence was carried out the morning of Monday 4 February 1555. He was not even allowed to spend any time with his wife and children before he died, although they were forced to watch him being burned at the stake. He had been offered a pardon if he would renounce Protestantism, but with holy scorn he utterly refused it. He was the first Protestant martyr of Mary's reign.

He has a memorial at Marian Martyrs' Monument, London[1].
