In 1621 James I quarrelled violently with one of his bishops, Lewes Bayly, and sent him to gaol. Rather bizarrely, Bayly was both the author of one of the best-selling books of protestant devotion, The Practice of Piety, but also a controversial bishop, constantly in trouble with his clergy, his parishioners and even his king.
