(d. 1601)

James was raised as a Protestant at a time when it was illegal to be Catholic in England. But while working as a bookseller and publisher in London, he read a book called The Foundation of the Catholic Religion, which led him to become Catholic. Years later, he was sentenced to death for printing Catholic books; on the way to being hanged, he embraced and forgave the man who had betrayed him.
