Not even his past role as tutor could save John Fisher (1469-1535) from the wrath of Henry. He was an opponent of Luther and on one occasion (11th February 1526), at the King’s command, he preached a sermon outside St Paul’s Cathedral against Luther and his writings. However, Fisher was a strong advocate of Papal authority, and when Henry tried to divorce Catherine of Aragon, Fisher became the Queen’s chief supporter. Fisher fell out of favour. He was arrested in March 1533 for opposing the divorce and for refusing to take the oath of succession, which acknowledged the issue of Henry and Anne as legitimate heirs to the throne. He was imprisoned in the Tower and executed on 22nd June 1535. This edition of Fisher’s Assertions on Luther was printed by the Paris-based female printer Charlotte Guillard (d.1557).
