Show Summary Details

Preview

These two pastoral sermons were delivered shortly after the meeting at the Field of Cloth of Gold, at which Fisher was an observer. They deal with the three aspects of the Church: militant, suffering, and triumphant, and contain observations on Heaven and Purgatory, together with a treatment of community and iustitia. The chapter includes an introduction and commentary with special reference to the influences of St Augustine and St Bernard.
