Chapter Summary

As the political situation became increasingly difficult in the German Empire, with the Protestants more under threat, Peter Martyr Vermigli made the decision to accept the offer of refuge in England, proffered by Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, and communicated by an English mission to Strasbourg in October 1547. The controversies between Vermigli and Smyth on the Eucharist, monastic vows and predestination have been well rehearsed. This chapter explores the protagonists' hermeneutical and methodological approaches, with a view to clarifying the 'conservatism' of the sixteenth- century University of Oxford, focusing on the place of and approaches to reading Scripture. It further seeks to assess Vermigli's contribution to the organisation of the university's teaching.
