Biography

Peter Martyr Vermigli (8 September 1499 – 12 November 1562) was an Italian theologian of the Reformation period who converted from Roman Catholicism to Protestantism. He was a very influential figure in the early development of Reformed theology and in the English Reformation. To avoid persecution he was forced to flee Catholic Italy for the Reformed safe haven of Switzerland. Appointed to a professorship at Oxford University, he was influential in the development of the theology of the Eucharist in Protestant England and in modifications of the Book of Common Prayer.

NOTE: Dating back to at least the late 19th century he has been wrongly linked as an ancestor of the New Netherland Vermilyea family.
