Religion and Religious Institutions
The article begins by reviewing ecclesiastical connections between Lisbon and England, which go back to 1147 when one of a body of English Crusaders who aided the King, Gilbert of Hastings, was made Bishop of Lisbon. In 1654 the Treaty of Westminster between Cromwell and Portugal agreed that when there was a British Envoy in Lisbon the British Community could meet for services at his house. The first Chaplain to the Envoy was Zachary Craddock (1656-61). He was followed by Thomas Marsden (1661-63).
The author was Chaplain in Lisbon from 193-45.
