Henry de Thrapston

From Wikipedia, in a visual modern way

Henry de Thrapston (died c.1333) was an English cleric, judge and Crown official who spent most of his career in Ireland, where he became Chancellor of the Exchequer of Ireland and Archdeacon of Cork.

He was born at Thrapston in Northamptonshire. By the early 1300s, he was already a senior Crown official, and his Irish career began around 1301. He frequently returned to England, where he had a number of official duties, such as keeper of the lands of the Royal favourite Hugh Despenser the Elder. He was also entrusted with arresting the attendees at a tournament (presumably an illegal event) in Staffordshire.

In Ireland, he became custodian of the writs and rolls of the Court of the Justiciar of Ireland in 1301. An order in the Close Rolls of that year survives for payment to him of 50 shillings. In 1307 he was superseded by Nicholas Wynley, and ordered to hand all the records over to him. He was appointed second Baron of the Court of Exchequer (Ireland) in 1328. He was appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1330 so long as he was of good behaviour, and "so long as his bodily health allowed". This was presumably a reference to his advancing years and ill health, although he held the office for about three years, being replaced by Thomas de Brayles in 1333.

He was something of a pluralist: in addition to being Archdeacon of Cork he was parish priest of Mallow, County Cork, and of Gamston, Rushcliffe, Nottinghamshire.

Judge

A judge is a person who presides over court proceedings, either alone or as a part of a panel of judges. A judge hears all the witnesses and any other evidence presented by the barristers or solicitors of the case, assesses the credibility and arguments of the parties, and then issues a ruling in the case based on their interpretation of the law and their own personal judgment. A judge is expected to conduct the trial impartially and, typically, in an open court.

Favourite

A favourite or favorite was the intimate companion of a ruler or other important person. In post-classical and early-modern Europe, among other times and places, the term was used of individuals delegated significant political power by a ruler. It was especially a phenomenon of the 16th and 17th centuries, when government had become too complex for many hereditary rulers with no great interest in or talent for it, and political institutions were still evolving. From 1600 to 1660 there were particular successions of all-powerful minister-favourites in much of Europe, particularly in Spain, England, France and Sweden.

Religious pluralism

Religious pluralism

Religious pluralism is an attitude or policy regarding the diversity of religious belief systems co-existing in society. It can indicate one or more of the following:Recognizing and tolerating the religious diversity of a society or country, promoting freedom of religion, and defining secularism as neutrality on issues of religion as opposed to opposition of religion in the public forum or public square that is open to public expression, and promoting friendly separation of religion and state as opposed to hostile separation or Antitheism espoused by other forms of secularism. Any of several forms of religious inclusivism. One such worldview holds that one's own religion is not the sole and exclusive source of truth, and thus acknowledges that at least some truths and true values exist in other religions. Another concept is that two or more religions with mutually exclusive truth claims are equally valid; this may be considered a form of either toleration or moral relativism. Perennialism or Traditionalism is the understanding that the exclusive claims of different religions turn out, upon closer examination, to be variations of universal truths that have been taught since time immemorial. Sometimes as a synonym for ecumenism, i.e., the promotion of some level of unity, co-operation, and improved understanding between different religions or different denominations within a single religion. As a term for the condition of harmonious co-existence between adherents of different religions or religious denominations. As a social norm and not merely a synonym for religious diversity.
