"Edward Rainbowe (1608–1684) was an English clergyman and a noted preacher. He was educated at Westminster School, Corpus Christi College, Oxford and Magdalene College, Cambridge, from where he graduated MA in 1630 and DD in 1643. He was elected a fellow of Magdalene in 1633 and Master in 1642. In 1650, he was deprived of the office by Parliament, but was reinstated at the Restoration in 1660. He also served as Vice-Chancellor of Cambridge University from 1662 to 1663. In 1661 he was appointed Dean of Peterborough and in 1664 Bishop of Carlisle, a post which he held until his death twenty years later."
