This chapter traces Morison's education and the main influences on him in the years to 1536. It examines the syllabus he followed at Cardinal College, Oxford and argues that Morison was converted to evangelical beliefs during his time there. Morison's time at Padua University is also analysed and his academic interests, which embraced civil law, theology and Greek, are traced. Morison's connections to important intellectual figures such as Reginald Pole and Thomas Starkey are discussed, as is his interest in the works of several Italian humanists. The focus then shifts from Morison's humanistic education to how Morison's humanism worked in practice. The extensive corpus on which Morison drew when writing is analysed, as are his attitudes towards language and translation.

Keywords:   education, Oxford, Padua, humanism, translation
