    More Information:

    Gauden, John (1605-1662), Bishop of Worcester, putitive author the Eikon Basilike. "In the early days of the Civil War his sympathies were with the Parliament, and for a short time in 1643 he was a member of the Westminster Assembly. Later he changed his opinions, but was able nonetheless to retain his living throughout the Commonwealth period. At the Restoration in 1660 he was made Bishop of Exeter, and in 1662 was translated, not as he hoped, to Winchester, but to Worcester. He published several controversial works against the Puritans including his monumental Anglicanae Suspira, and defense of the Anglican ministry and liturgy."
