John Colet, dean of St. Paul's Cathedral in London, died in 1519. Two years later Henry VIII wrote the Assertio septem sacramentorum, his polemic against Martin Luther. Although Colet's death occurred (16 Sept. 1519) 20 months before Luther's books were burned in St. Paul's Cathedral courtyard (12 May 1521), he knew of Luther and Luther's books before his end came.
