Sermons at Great St Mary’s
Many notable sermons have been preached from Great St Mary’s pulpit over the centuries. Many of the great names from the Reformation have addressed the Great St Mary’s congregation, including Latimer, Ridley, and Bray. The Reformation theologian Martin Bucer was buried in the church. Years later, his body was dug up and burnt during the reign of Queen Mary — however a memorial plaque marks the place of his tomb.
