Bishop Richard Fox of Winchester (1448-1528) was an important early modern English prelate whose tireless service to his church, to his king and to humanist studies single him out as one of the great shapers of the Tudor age. This book examines his life and career, taking as its theme the ""corporate"" nature of the worlds in which Fox lived and worked: the corpus Christi mysticum of the late medieval church and the emerging ""body politic"" of the early Tudor monarchy. His service to these institutions, along with his foundation of the humanist Corpus Christi College at Oxford, linked him to ""bodies most politic and holy"" during a transitional period in English history. Also responsible for launching the careers of other more famous prelates and statesmen, such as Thomas Wolsey and John Fisher, Fox deserves to take his place among the great luminaries of the Tudor age.
