Valuable essays and very well integrated by the editors. Perhaps one might have
expected siome discussion of Fisher's contribution to the 'divorce' debate,but this
has now been well covered elsewhere.

Excellent collection 3 Dec. 2012
By Michael Degnan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
John Fisher is typically overshadowed by the popular appeal of Thomas More. In comparison to his lay counterpart, Fisher -- beheaded just a few days before More -- can seem remote and austere. In reality, he was extraordinarily committed to being present to his people and serving the pastoral needs of his diocese in a time of absentee prelates. He had a sophisticated and reforming mind; but one devoted to the continuity of Christian tradition. His ambition for the excellence of his university, Cambridge, was matched by his lack of interest in self-promotion. This collection of essays on the various aspects of Fisher the man is a wonderful resource for understanding the "other" major Catholic victim of Henrician ego.
