Richard Barnes (15321587) was an Anglican priest who served as a bishop in the Church of England during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. He was educated at Brasenose College, Oxford, where he was elected a fellow in 1552, and received his MA in 1557 and his DD in 1579. In 1561 he was appointed Chancellor of the Diocese of York and later became a canon and prebendary of York Minster. In 1567 he was appointed Suffragan Bishop of Nottingham and in 1570 Bishop of Carlisle. In 1577 he was translated to Durham.

Bishop of Carlisle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1047 words)
The Bishop of Carlisle is the Ordinary of the Church of England Diocese of Carlisle in the Province of York.
The next bishop was Walter Malclerk, formerly agent of King John, and a prominent figure in the reign of Henry III.
A fresh beginning was made by the energetic Bishop John de Halton (1292-1324), a favourite of Edward I, and for nearly a hundred years the building of the present choir proceeded, though with many interruptions.
Robert Barnes - LoveToKnow 1911 (561 words)
An attack upon Bishop Gardiner by Barnes in a sermon at St Paul's Cross was the signal for a bitter struggle between the Protestant and reactionary parties in Henry's council, which raged during the spring of 1540.
Barnes was forced to apologize and recant; and Gardiner delivered a series of sermons at St Paul's Cross to counteract Barnes' invective.
Barnes was one of six executed on the same day: two, William Jerome and Thomas Gerrard, were, like himself, burnt for heresy under the Six Articles; three, Thomas Abel, Richard Fetherstone and Edward Powell, were hanged for treason in denying the royal supremacy.
