More than 160 priests trained in the English College of Douai, France, returned to England and Wales and faced arrest, torture, and execution by English authorities. They were martyred in England and Wales during the century following the foundation of the famed college by Cardinal William Allen in 1568. A large group - more than eighty - were beatified in 1929, and English dioceses celebrate the feasts of these martyrs. [1]
