Publisher's Description

John Fisher was central to the issues and dilemmas of the renaissance and the transformation in Tudor England. Active as a humanist, preacher, bishop, educationalist and controversial theologian, Fisher demonstrated that the rich life of the pre-reformation church as well as its problems in confronting the "blind and disordered desire" of Henry VIII. For Fisher, as for Thomas More, this resulted in execution on Tower Hill. This study focuses on Fisher's wide-ranging pastoral, scholarly, literary and political activity, which makes him a key figure in European religious and cultural history.
