From Kenneth Fisher re Cardinal Fisher.

I have just read Hugh Loughran's excellent treatise on St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher ("Thomas More & Bishop Fisher," C.I. July/Aug. 2005, pp.22-25). However, I was surprised to read that Loughran called St. John Fisher, Bishop of Rochester, a Cardinal.

I have visited Bishop Fisher's Cathedral, and this is the first time I have heard of him as a Cardinal. Was this done after his martyrdom, posthumously?

If he knows something I don't, please let me in on it.

Editor: Bishop John Fisher was imprisoned in April, 1534. The new Pope Paul III created Bishop Fisher a cardinal in May, 1535, just weeks before his death.
