Catholics Read Challenge to the Privy Council (“Brag”)


Challenge to the Privy Council is a testament by the Jesuit priest and martyr St Edmund Campion, composed on his mission in Elizabethan England. The work, written while in hiding from laws making the Catholic priesthood illegal, details his purpose for coming to England and his challenge to debate with various scholars about the truth of the Catholic faith.

In this episode, Luke and Victoria discuss the Challenge to the Privy Council, the life and martyrdom of St Edmund Campion, and how the document shows him to be a great model of the priesthood.
