Beccadelli was the secretary to Pole and considered the first secretary authority for the facts of the Archbishop's life.  Pole (1500-1558) received early preferment in the Church, but fell foul of Henry VIII over the question of the royal divorce and in 1539 an Act of Attainder was passed against him and his family, leading to the execution of his mother in 1541.  His attainder was removed upon the death of Edward VI and he became papal legate to England.  He was consecrated Archbishop of Canterbury in 1557.  The work was first published in 1563 in Venice.  Wing B1641.
