Saint John Fisher, was an English Catholic bishop during the turn of the 15th-century. He sought to defend Catholicism, upholding many of the doctrines that were questioned by protestants. He was arrested for opposing King Henry VIII’s policies and was eventually beheaded for his views. He is viewed as a martyr in the Catholic Church.

 

This book, controversial in nature, was his defense and response to Martin Luther’s protestant sermons. This work, originally published in 1525, is the most important refutation of Luther’s reformed doctrine by an Englishman. According to Adams, this 1559 edition is “a re-issue of the sheets of the 1558 Birckmann edition with errors of signatures uncorrected.”. Arnold Birckmann, known-for Renaissance publishing, was one of the most important booksellers of the 16th-century, notable for his publications of Erasmus.
