BRADWARDINE, Thomas (doctor profundus), b. [probably in 1290 at Chichester, Eng.]; d. in London, Aug. 26, 1349; studied theology, philo.ophy, mathematics, and astronomy in Merton College, Oxford; became one of the proctors of the university in 1325; followed Edward III. as his confessor, since 1338, in his campaigns in France; and was chosen Archbishop of Canterbury, and consecrated at Avignon a few weeks before his death.

Several of his mathematical works were published at Venice or Paris, 1495-1536.
