Summary expansion
The bull of Pope Leo X, "Exsurge domine" dated June 15, 1520, condemned 41 articles from Luther's works. Instead of submitting within sixty days, Luther instead published his "Assertio," his assertion of all the articles condemned through the pope's bull, and publicly burned the papal document. The rebuttal by Fisher, one of Luther's staunchest Catholic opponents, who had written eight well-known books against Lutheran doctrinism, was written soon after, although publication was delayed until 1523. To begin, Fisher sets out ten truths on which he proposes to base his refutation. He then examines, one-by-one, Luther's defense of the 41 propositions condemned by the pope. Each quotation from Luther is followed by a refutation from Fisher, effectively reprinting the whole of the Assertio. In this inconspicuous way Luther's condemned theology first came to be published in Italy. See E. Surtz, Works and days of John Fisher (Cambridge, Mas.., 1967), pages 309-318
