George Bullock (c. 1521-1572) was an English Roman Catholic theologian.


He graduated B.A. at St John's College, Cambridge in 1538, becoming a Fellow.[1] In the reign of Edward VI he spent time in France, at Nevers Abbey. He was Master of St John's College, from 12 May 1554 to 20 July 1559.[2][3]

He became Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity in 1556 and graduated D.D. in 1557. He was appointed vicar of St Sepulchre-without-Newgate in 1556, and later the same year rector of Great Munden. On the accession of Elizabeth I he was deprived of all his positions, since he refused to take the Oath of Supremacy.[2]

He went to Antwerp as a theology lecturer, and died there in October or November 1572.[4] He published Oeconomia concordantiarum scripturae sacrae.[2]
