Peterhouse : Enarrationes perpetuae in sacra quatuor Evangelia

Bucer, Martin, 1491-1551


<p style='text-align: justify;'>A copy of the <i>Enarrationes</i> of Martin Bucer, the famed 16th-century German reformer, formerly owned and heavily annotated by Andrew Perne (1519?-1589; Master of Peterhouse, 1553/4-1589). Bucer’s work saw him excommunicated, and in 1549 he left Germany for England where he took up the post of Regius Professor of Divinity at the University of Cambridge, a role he held until his death in 1551. Perne, who at the time was Vice Chancellor of the University, seems to have had a particular interest in Bucer: he remarkably preached both the sermon in 1557 when the bodies of Bucer and Paul Fagius were disinterred and burned for heresy, and in 1560 when the proceedings were reversed and the former heretics rehabilitated.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Dr Marie Turner<br /> Peterhouse, Cambridge </p>
