Early Life and Education
In some of his later religious works, such as The Pseudo-Marytr, Donne redeemed himself with his supporters. Among them was King James I, who appointed him as a priest at the Church of England in January 1615. Soon after, he became a royal chaplain, and then, on November 22, 1621, he was elected dean of St. Paul's Cathedral. He continued this role to the end of his life, when he died on March 31, 1631 in London, England.
