Abstract:

John Foxe is chiefly remembered as an historian and propagandist of the English Reformation. However, thanks partly to his exile (1554-59) and partly to his network of friends among the continental reformers, both his general intention and his Latin works were widely known. His major English work, the Actes and Monuments, made little immediate impact in Europe, although by the following century it was generally familiar at second hand, but wherever the English language went, whether to North America or to European exile, a broad familiarity with the Book of Martyrs went with it. Although his effective influence varied very much from one country to another, eventually it became international - and indeed worldwide. The contributions to this volume arise from the Fourth John Foxe Colloquium, held at Boston, Lincolnshire (Foxe's birthplace) in 2001. The theme of the conference was 'John Foxe, at home and abroad' and it aimed to combine some detailed looks at Reformation Lincolnshire with a more general assessment of his international importance. A distinguished and international group of scholars read the papers which are here presented; on topics ranging from the reformed credentials of Boston as a town, through the creation of the great anti-Catholic myth, to his links with The Netherlands and his absorption into the culture of North America. The Protestant martyrological tradition was truly international, and Foxe was one of its major architects. In addition to making its contribution to Foxe scholarship and adding new perspectives, this volume is a tribute to Patrick Collinson, an active and valued member of the John Foxe Project and until recently the Chairman of its Management Committee.
