Contributing Institution: Southern Methodist University Bridwell Library and Ohio State University Libraries Description: Nightingall, whom Foxe identifies as a Roman Catholic parson at Crondall in Kent, falls from his pulpit and into his congregation. The death supposedly occurs while the tonsured Nightingall had preached that the pope has authority to pardon sins. According to Foxe, his death demonstrates providential disapproval of papal authority. Individual members of Nightingall's congregation hold rosary beads.
