Charles, King and Martyr

The Feast commemorating the martyrdom of Charles I has long held a special place in Anglo-Catholic spirituality. 

We traditionally regard Charles as a martyr because, it is said, he was offered his life if he would abandon the historic episcopacy in the Church of England but refused, believing that the Church of England was truly Catholic and should maintain the Catholic episcopate.

The Feast of St Charles the Martyr traditionally falls on 30 January, the date of Charles's martyrdom.
