Chapter Summary

In this debate,Vermigli formulated what came to be recognized as both his single most significant contribution to Reformation thought and also, though much less recognized, to his lasting influence upon the liturgy of the Book of Common Prayer. Of special significance for the measure of Vermigli's influence on the English Church is the fact that the 1552 Prayer Book sets the standard for all subsequent authorised revisions of the liturgy, including the two most important revisions of the Elizabethan Settlement (1559) and the Restoration Settlement. At Strasbourg he wrote his most important work of political theology in the form of a Commentary on the book of Judges. Here Vermigli is seen as an international religious leader, courted by and giving advice to princes.
