The English works of John Fisher, Bishop of Rochester (born, 1459; died, June 22, 1535) by John Fisher( Book )

67 editions published between 1876 and 1999 in English and English, Middle and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bishop John Fisher was a scholar and theologian of European reputation, famous as a preacher and author of the first sermon-sequence to be printed in English. He was beheaded for his refusal to take Henry VIII's Oath of Supremacy and pursued after his death by the enmity of the king, who suppressed his books and sought to blacken his name." "The figure of John Fisher links the age of late medieval piety with the growth of Christian humanism and the new learning which, as a friend of Erasmus, he introduced as chancellor of Cambridge University. His English writings are distinctive for their structured elegance and clarity. This new edition contains sermons written during the last fifteen years of Fisher's life, including a previously unpublished eyewitness account of the Field of Cloth of Gold celebrations, and devotional works composed while he was a prisoner in the Tower of London."--BOOK JACKET

Ricardi de Cirencestria Speculum historiale de gestis regum Angliæ. From the copy in the Public library, Cambridge by Richard of Cirencester( Book )

54 editions published between 1863 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard of Cirencester (c.1335-1400) wrote his Latin history of the deeds of the English kings while he was a Benedictine monk at St Peter's, Westminster. His work is largely unoriginal and derivative of other historians, but it does contain valuable information about Westminster Abbey, as well as a full account of the saints whose tombs were to be seen in the abbey church. The fourth (and last) book concentrates solely on the reign and deeds of Edward the Confessor. Although Richard expresses an intention to continue his story in a fifth book, beginning with William the Conqueror, there is no evidence that he ever did so. This first volume of a two-volume work, edited by the scholar John Eyton Bickersteth Mayor (1825-1910) and published in 1863, covers the period from the legendary accession of Vortigern in 447 up to the death of Ethelred of Wessex in 871
Q. Septimi Florentis Tertulliani Apologeticus : the text of Oehler by Tertullian( Book )

21 editions published between 1917 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A masterpiece of rhetoric and an impassioned defence of faith in the face of persecution, this work represents a key work in the Latin patristic canon. Addressing the magistrates of the Roman court, Tertullian submits 'the real facts in the case of the Christians', defending the legitimacy of the new faith while charging its detractors with hypocrisy and worse. Scathing, eloquent and defiant, the Apology demonstrates the importance of classical rhetoric to the identity of the controversial religion and its recent converts. This edition (1917), accompanied by a complete commentary by J. E. B. Mayor and translation by Alexander Souter, has been called 'by the far the best commentary ever published' on the work. Published posthumously from Mayor's extensive Cambridge lecture notes, the commentary is a starting point for anyone seeking a full understanding of the text's critical history. Souter's English translation makes it accessible to experts and non-experts alike
History of the College of St. John the evangelist, Cambridge by Thomas Baker( Book )

16 editions published between 1869 and 2009 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Baker (1656-1740) spent most of his long life at St John's College, Cambridge pursuing historical research. He was also an avid book collector, and bequeathed his valuable library to the college. His writings included a history of the college, which was edited by John Mayor and published in 1869. Volume 1 begins with an account of the founding of the college in 1511, and goes on to list donors and details of their endowments, and the first scholars of the college. It also contains information about ordinances, petitions, and important individuals. Baker's sources include written documentation (for example the 'thick black book' and the 'white vellum book') as well as oral traditions. His work is not merely a register of dates and numbers, but a fascinating account of two centuries of committed work and political manoeuvres underlying the later success of this rich and influential college
