Author Information: An Ancestor of the Duke of Wellington, Henry Fitzsimon was born in Swords, Co. Dublin in 1566. He was educated as a protestant in Manchester and at Christ Church College, Oxford where he graduated in Philosophy in 1587. He also studied at Pont à Mousson in Paris after which he travelled to Rome where he converted to Catholicism and was appointed Professor of Philosophy at Douay. Fitzsimon entered a Jesuit Seminary in 1593 at Louvain and returned to Dublin in 1596 as an ordained priest. In 1599 the Earl of Essex ordered the arrest of Fitzsimon in Cahir, Co. Tipperary. He evaded arrest but was eventually captured and imprisoned in Dublin Castle until 1604, five years after his imprisonment. When he was released he was banished from Ireland. He travelled to Spain, Then Luxembourg and Tournay where he became a military chaplain in the Austria and Bohemian Armies. Fitzsimon returned to Rome in 1608 where he wrote "The Justification and Exposition of the Missioner Throughout Ireland? (1611) and a Catalogue of Irish Saints (1615). It is believed that he ministered to condemned criminals in Liege, Belgium in 1619 before he accompanied the army to Bohemia in 1620. His experiences there recounted in his "History of the Bohemian Campaign (1620). In 1621 he published "Buquoy Quadrimestre Iter, Progressuque quo, favente numine, ac auspice Ferdinando Il Rom. Imp. Austria est conservata, Bohemia Subjugata, Moravia acquisita eademque opera Silesia solicitata, Hungariaque Terrefacta? and De Praelio Pragensis, Pragaeque Deditions Octava et Nona Novembris MDCXX? Not much is known of Fitzsimon?s life from 1620 to 1641. In 1641 he was condemned to death by hanging in Dublin, however he escaped to the Dublin Wicklow hills and from there made his way to a Jesuit community in Kilkenny, he remained there until his death in 1643. Fitzsimon, in response to John Rider Protestant Dean of St. Patrick?s challenge to prove certain teachings from Catholic doctrine wrote "Brief collections from the Scriptures?, MS (1601); Rider answered with a printed pamphlet, A friendly caveat to Ireland?s Catholics, and at the next turn with Rescript. On the continent, Fitzsimon published A Catholike confutation of Mr John Rider?s claym to antiquitie, and a caulming comfort against his Caveat (Rouen 1608), with a "dedicatorie epistle? to "the Catholickes of Ireland and of all Estates and Degrees? Fitzsimon later issued Justification and exposition of the divine sacrifice of the masse, and of all rites and ceremonies therto belonging ([Douai] 1611), also against Rider. He dedicated it to the founder of the Irish College in Douai. Place of publication and printer?s name from STC. In two parts. Register and pagination continuous.
