    Description: The burning of three "godly saints," including Julins Palmer, I. Gwin, and Thomas Askine. The three men stand tied together and are fully clothed. The martyr to the farthest right has his arms outstretched while the other two have their arms pulled close to their bodies and their hands clasped in prayer. The three martyrs are surrounded by large flames and large clouds of black smoke hover above their heads. The men are surrounded by a group of soldiers, several of whom attend to the fire and faggots. In earlier editions, this martyrdom is illustrated by Luborsky and Ingram 11223/37. This engraving, however, appears as a new design. JPEG file (521 KB).

Cicely [Cicelie] Ormes(“Welcome y [the] Cross of Christ”) stands chained and burning at the stake; large clouds of smoke hover above her head. Fully clothed and with both arms raised above her head, she looks out to the large crowd of soldiers that surrounds her. At the far left a soldier on horseback appears to be administering the martyrdom, while two soldiers at the bottom right of the image are tending the faggots and the fire. Revised version of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/20, which appears twice in the second (1570) and once in the third (1576) and fourth (1583) early English editions. JPEG file (488 KB).

    Description: John Noyes of Laxfield stands chained to the stake and burning. Noyes is bearded and fully clothed and appears to be making a shrugging motion with this arms and shoulders. Two men are in the forefront of the image--one on his knees appears to be tending the fire and adjusting a faggot and another man, who does not appear to be a soldier, is possibly pleading for Noyes’ life. The caption of the engraving disputes the year of this martyrdom and is unclear about whether it took place in 1556 or 1557. This depiction of Noyes' martyrdom is a new design for this edition; in earlier editions it is illustrated by Luborsky and Ingram 11223/18, which appears multiple times in the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) early English editions.

Others in the crowd try to remove the owl by throwing sticks and poking at it.
