2nd April 1536 - John Skip's Controversial Sermon - The Anne Boleyn Files
On the 2nd April 1536, Anne Boleyn’s almoner, John Skip, preached a sermon on the Old Testament story of Queen Esther where King Ahasuerus was deceived by his adviser, Haman. John Skip must have had Anne’s permission & blessing to preach this sermon, & it is likely that it was her idea. She had just quarreled with Cromwell over the dissolution of the monasteries. She felt that the proceeds should be used on education & charitable causes rather than to make the King richer.
