English Catholics attacked Archbishop Thomas Cranmer's eucharistic views. Stephen Gardiner, Bishop of Winchester, and the Jesuit, Robert Parsons testify to Vermigli's impact on Cranmer. Cranmer placed Martyr's prayer in his 1552 Prayer Book revision, defending his Italian Protestant guest who furnished the Patristic texts to affirm a "true" rather than "real" eucharistic presence. From Lambeth in 1547 to Oxford of 1549 and on to his 1559 Defensio, Martyr defended their common understanding. Not even Cranmer's 1556 execution which scorched Balliol's gates slowed Vermigli's resolve to answer Gardiner at Cranmer's request, an answer shared by Martyr and Cranmer since April 1548.
