He was replaced by Petrus Mosellanus. As a young man he was identified as a follower of Erasmus, who at this period was constructing his editio princeps of the New Testament in Greek (Basle, 1516). He was recalled by John Fisher in 1519 to teach Greek at Cambridge; it had been in abeyance since Erasmus's time (1511–13), and he was Cambridge's second lecturer in Greek. He became Public Orator at Cambridge in 1522, Fellow of St John's College, Cambridge in 1523 and Doctor of Divinity in 1524. He quarrelled with Fisher over college matters in the later 1520s. In 1529 and 1530 he acted for Henry VIII in Italy, in the matter of the king's intended divorce from Catherine of Aragon; earlier he had tutored Henry in Greek. While seeking canon lawyers to support Henry's side of the argument, he also contacted humanists (such as Girolamo Ghinucci) and sought manuscripts. On his return to England, he in 1531 became deputy vice-chancellor of Cambridge, and vicar of Long Buckby, Nottinghamshire. A year later he moved to the University of Oxford. He was a witness at the 1555 trial of Thomas Cranmer.
