Editions

For digital copies of the Latin text, see , and , and the English editions of the Latin (through EEBO) for (2ce), , (2ce), and . Cecilia Hatt (2002:469) doubts the attribution of this work to Fisher. However, all the editions of the Latin text, except for Berthelet's two London editions, including the one included in Fisher's Opera omnia identify Fisher as the author, as do the continental translations; only the editions of the English version of Katherine Parr fail to mention Fisher's authorship.

English Version (Katherine Parr, )

Neither the name of the author (Fisher) nor the translator (now identified as Katherine Parr, Henry VIII's last Queen) were ever included in any of the editions of the English version. However, from onwards the translation was published along with Katherine Parr's own Prayers and Meditations. By a strange irony, Fisher's work also became associated or identified from onwards with the King who killed him, when the title of the translation was changed to Psalmes or Prayers taken out of the holy scripture, commonly called the Kynges Psalmes.
