Preaching Against Luther

(p.48) 4 Preaching Against Luther
English Works of John Fisher, Bishop of Rochester

The texts are given of two anti‐Lutheran sermons, the “sermon against the pernicious doctrine of Martin Luther” preached in 1521 and a “sermon concerning certain heretics” of 1526. An introduction explains the controversial background, of the search in England for heretical writings and the Leipzig disputation in the case of the first and the history of Robert Barnes in the second. There is a discussion of William Tyndale's reaction to the earlier sermon. A commentary to each sermon explains references to Luther's writings and to the patristic and other sources cited by Fisher.

Keywords:   against the pernicious doctrine, Robert Barnes, concerning certain heretics, Leipzig disputation, Luther, patristic sources, Tyndale
