Foxe's Book of martyrs : select narratives by John Foxe( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man: we shall this day light such a candle by God's grace in England, as, I trust, shall never be put out." Hugh Latimer's famous words of consolation to Nicholas Ridley as they are both about to be burnt alive for heresy come from John Foxe's magisterial Acts and Monuments, popularly known as the Book of Martyrs . This vast collection of unforgettable accounts of religious persecution exerted as great an influence on early modern England and New England as the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer. It contains many stirring stories of the apprehension, interrogation, imprisonment, and execution of alleged heretics. Based on a new transcription of the last edition overseen by John Foxe, this new edition includes a full introduction to Foxe and his times, the religious conflicts, and the nature of martyrological narratives. The text is further enhanced by 21 of the original woodcut illustrations, glossaries of people, places, and words, a general index, and notes explaining allusions and identifying scriptural quotations. - Publisher
