Phillips, Morgan

Phillips, Morgan sometimes called Phillip Morgan, a Roman Catholic divine, was born probably during the latter part of the 15th century. He received his education at Oxford, graduating in the class of 1537. He was made principal of St. Mary's Hall in 1546, and was one of the founders of the English College at Douay, where he died in 1570. His powers as a disputant were so great that he was called "Morgan the Sophister." and he was one of the three selected to dispute with Peter Martyr on the Eucharist, and published on that occasion Disputatio de Sacramento Eucharistiae in Univ. Oxon. habita contra D. Peter Martyr, 13 Mai, 1549. He also published A Treatise showing the Regiment of Women is

conformable to the Law of God and Nature (Liege, 1571, 8vo), written in answer to John Knox's work, The First Blast of the Trumpet, etc. See Wood, Athen. Oxon.; Dodd, Ch. Hist. volume 3; Allibone, Dict. of Brit. and Amer. Auth. s.v.
