5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection 3 Dec 2012
By Michael Degnan - Published on Amazon.com
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.
