Suvermerian

A term used to describe the eucharistic doctrine held by Archbishop Cranmer* between 1549 and 1555. Charles Smyth in his Cranmer and the Reformation under Edward VI (1926) reintroduced this term of a theology when in fact Saxon theologians latinized Schwarmer as swermeros to apply to theologians. More recently, Horton Davies has substituted the term “Virtualism” to link Cranmer with Bucer, Bullinger, Calvin, and Peter Martyr.
