Pregnant with his son, a Catholic priest was thrown in a medieval ring in England.
His wife died in childbirth, and he was raised in a convent in the Midlands.
He was ordained a priest in 1616.
He became a monk and went on to become a Catholic missionary.
But it wasn’t until the 17th century that he actually took up the religion.
He took on the title of “judas priest,” a title he kept for the rest of his life.
“I was a man of the world,” he said in a 2012 interview with The Irish Times.
“But I was not the man of God.”
And he was not alone.
He’s survived by his wife and four children.
