    Description: John Kurde stands chained to a stake amidst burning faggots. He is fully clothed and has both arms flailing about him. He is surrounded by a crowd of soldiers who observe the martyrdom. The soldier standing to the right of Kurde seems to be gesturing something by pointing his finger toward the right of the image. Another soldier stands at the forefront of the image and appears to be keeping a sympathetic man and woman at bay, who seem to be pleading for Kurde’s life. In earlier editions this martyrdom is illustrated by Luborsky and Ingram 11223/14, which appears multiple times in the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) early English editions. It appears here apparently as a new design, with faint hints at the original. JPEG file (1.28 MB).

    Description: William Sawtre, a priest, is fully-clothed and with arms outstretched and chained to a stake. Two men stoke the fire surrounding him. The crowd looking on includes a man on horseback, a man clothed in ecclesiastical garb, many soldiers, other men, and at least one woman.

    Description: “Divers Persons counted for Lollards, hanged and burned in the first year of the Reign of King Henry the V (1413).” Two groups of Lollards hang on separate sets of gallows. Four men stoke the fire beneath the hanging men while a fifth man sits on a horse and directs the action. This design is very similar to the original woodcut that appears in the second, third, and fourth early English editions (1570, 1576, 1583). However, the woodcut depicts the burning and hanging of martyrs under the reign of Henry I. Revised design of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/8. JPEG file (483 KB).

    Description: Priest William Tailor [Taylor?] is tied and chained to the stake to be burned; bundles of faggots surround him but no flame or torch is portrayed in the scene. He seems to be fully clothed and has his arms outstretched above him as in prayer. Five men (or four men and one woman) kneel around him with their arms reaching out in supplication. Other men with axes stand around Tailor. This martyrdom is depicted in earlier editions of Actes and Monuments by Luborsky and Ingram 11223/14, which is also used in the second edition (1570) to depict other martyrdoms. However, in this edition, the martyrdom is a revised design of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/16. JPEG file (424 KB).

One of the men, who holds the keys to the prison cell, blows out the candle in the cell before he exits.

Revised design of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/18, which appears in the second, third, and fourth early English editions (1570, 1576, 1583).
