Carranza, Bartolome de (1503-1576), a Spanish Dominican monk, who accompanied Philip II. to England on the occasion of his marriage with Queen Mary, and became the queen's confessor, and laboured hard for the restoration of Catholicism in England. Philip appointed him Archbishop of Toledo, but the jealousy of his enemies denounced him to the Inquisition as a heretic, and he was imprisoned for eight years. On appealing to Rome he was taken there, and confined in the Castle of St. Angelo for another ten years, and died soon after his final trial in 1576.
