dc.description.abstractThis essay explores Fisher's writings in the years and months before his execution in June, 1535. The essay argues that Fisher's writings demonstrate efforts made by the prelate to reconcile his defence of the sacrament of marriage with his willingness to die for the Catholic faith. Fisher's works suggest that he believed it was only through martyrdom that the unity of the Church could be preserved and that he went to the scaffold willingly and with the belief that it would be efficacious in preventing further reform in England.
