Renaissance and Reform in Tudor England

This chapter traces Morison's involvement in the English Reformation. It examines Morison's role in the theological determinations that led to the Bishops' Book, and details his involvement in the negotiations with the Schmalkaldic League in 1538. Throughout the 1530s Morison openly expressed Lutheran views and translated Lutheran works while actively promoting further reform of the English church. His theological opinion mattered and was invoked by other scholars looking for patronage from Thomas Cromwell. Morison was actively involved in the Reformation again in Edward VI's reign, when he served on several important Edwardian commissions including the visitation of Shropshire and Wales in 1547, the chantry commission in 1548 and the visitation of Oxford in 1549.
