Contributing Institution: Southern Methodist University Bridwell Library and Ohio State University Libraries Description: John Denley, fully clothed and chained to the stake, leans forward with arms extended toward a solider who is about to throw a bundle of faggots into the fire. Four other soldiers stand nearby and appear to be in conversation with each other rather than watching Denley's burning. Four ecclesiastical commissioners stand in the foreground of the image and appear to be administering this martyrdom and also instructing the soldier to throw the bundle of faggots. Revised version of Luborsky and Ingram 11223/74, which appears in each of the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) early English editions. JPEG file (521 KB).
Contributing Institution: Southern Methodist University Bridwell Library and Ohio State University Libraries Description: Observed by a crowd of soldiers, John Denley suffers martyrdom. As Denley raises his arms upward and sings a Psalm, Dr. John Story (xylographically identified as "D. Stori"), an ecclesiastical commissioner under Queen Mary, orders a worker to hurl a faggot at the martyr. According to Foxe, Denley ceases to sing after he receives the blow, and Story remarks, "Truly, thou hast marred a good old song." Denley is fully clothed. The martyrdom occurs at Uxbridge. This woodcut appears in the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) editions. Luborsky and Ingram 11223/74. JPEG file (3.79 MB).
