With the rise of the [[Counter-Reformation]] Paul Fagius found himself under pressure. After the defeat of the [[Schmalkaldic League]] in 1547, Fagius, who had opposed the [[Augsburg Interim]], found himself dismissed from his position, along with Martin Bucer. Both sought refuge in England, where they were taken in by [[Thomas Cranmer]]. In 1549 Fagius was appointed Hebrew lecturer at the [[University of Cambridge]].<ref>{{Venn|FGS549P}}</ref>
After being briefly active in Hebrew philology and interpreting the Old Testament Fagius died from plague in 1549, and was buried in [[Michaelhouse, Cambridge#St Michael's Church|St Michael's Church]], Cambridge. Under Queen [[Mary I of England|Mary's]] Catholic restoration, his remains were exhumed and burnt (as were Bucer's); in 1560 a memorial was again set up to him.
