Friar Bungay

is an historical character overlaid with legends. It is said that he “raised mists and vapours which befriended Edward IV. at the battle of Barnet.”

“[Friar Bungay is] the personification of the charlatan of science in the 15th century.”—Lord Lytton [Bulwer Lytton]: The Last of the Barons.
