      Personally, I think the whole cult of Charles, I, King and Martyr, is strange and a bit skewed in perspective to start with (though again, that’s not necessarily too unusual). But once one gets past the point of viewing him as a saint, I don’t see any particular problem with Americans venerating him as such. The Society of King Charles the Martyr has a history dating back to the 19th century. Since King Charles’ martyrdom on 30th January, , countless Anglicans and Christians have remembered his sacrifice for the Church. The origins of the Society can be traced back more specifically to when the Feast of s was unjustly removed the Kalendar of The Prayer Book.

      We talked of other matters instead. I can understand that he might take a personal interest in King Charles.] From a sermon by Ronald A Knox: We are met, dearly beloved, to celebrate the festival of Charles, King and Martyr, who laid down his life in defence of our most holy religion in the year of grace sixteen hundred and forty-nine.   The Society of King Charles the Martyr is a devotional society in the Church of England founded in to promote the cult of the English Church's martyr-king. It has been their tradition to hold an act of remembrance each year on the anniversary of his martyrdom in that very place where the King was executed: the Banqueting House on London's Whitehall.
