Contributing Institution: Southern Methodist University Bridwell Library and Ohio State University Libraries Description: Albright, Catmer, Lomas, Snoth, and Sole (all clothed) burn at two stakes. Lomas and two of the women fold their hands before them in prayer. One of the women raises her hand above her head. The martyrdom occurs at Canterbury. Even though the design of this woodcut is similar to other woodcuts that undergo repetition in the Book of Martyrs, this woodcut appears only once in the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) editions.
