Woodward, Ezekias (Hezekiah) 1590-1675

Hezekiah Woodward (1590-1675) was an English nonconformist minister and educator, also involved in the pamphlet wars of the 1640s. He was a Comenian in educational theory, and an associate of Samuel Hartlib. He was one of those articulating the Puritan argument against the celebration of Christmas.
