Free Crypte School

1655 – Unitarian John Biddle was freed from prison in England, having served six months for writing the Two-fold Catechism. “Two-fold” referred to his inclusion in the volume of a catechism for adults and a second one for children. The Two-fold Catechism advocated Unitarian doctrine, at that time a criminal offense in England. He was master of the Free Crypte School, attached to the St. Mary-de-Crypt Church in Gloucester, which was founded for the teaching of poor scholars.
