This document is still extant and gives a striking picture of episcopal poverty. A few days later, several of the bishop's servants were taken ill after eating some porridge served to the household, and two actually died. Fisher again refused to accede to Henry's request, and earnestly encouraged the other bishops to do the same. Fisher, as a member of the upper house, the House of Lordsat once warned Parliament that such acts could only end in the utter destruction of the Catholic Church in England. David Boulton: This is what emerged from your research.

Fisher had a vision to which he dedicated all his personal resources and energies. Since he had been deprived of his bishopric by the Act of Attainderhe was treated as a commoner, and tried by jury. After much negotiating Henry obtained from Pope Clement VII a commitment to set up a commission of inquiry into his marital status. He incurred such debt on his two coffee plantations that he could barely support his growing family. Also in Fisher received a papal dispensation to enter the priesthood despite being under canonical age. His contempt for contemporary ecclesiastical abuses was so intense that his denunciation of the sins of the clergy caused him to be suspected of heresy.

His insistence that the classics be taught diffused a sounder knowledge of Greek and Latin and of ancient life and thought. In order to promote the school, he invited politicians and journalists to attend lectures and organised demonstrations.

Being afraid to take the decision on themselves, the archbishops consulted other members of the hierarchy regarding the lawfulness of the marriage with a brother's widow. He clearly foresaw the highly dangerous implications of granting Henry this recognition.
