John Colet was the leading humanist theologian of Tudor England; in 1505 he became Dean of St Paul's Cathedral, where he attempted a series of reforms, but his most lasting achievement was the foundation of St Paul's School in 1509. Arnold analyses the theoretical humanism, theology and ecclesiology found in Colet's writings, then examines several events which illustrate both how he put these ideals into practice and how his vision for the Church was received by his contemporaries.
